Ask a Fool: $10,000 in 10 Stocks for 10 Years?

In this edition of The Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Motley Fool One analyst Jason Moser takes a question from a reader who asks: "After a frustrating day, I asked myself, 'why not keep it simple?' Why not invest 10K into 10 stocks for 10 years, and see the result?" Jason notes that there are a number of different ways to invest and that investors can make it as easy or as difficult as they like. Over the summer Jason put together a portfolio of 10 stocks called the Father's Day Portfolio which to date is beating the market. He offers up two ideas from this portfolio as long-term stock ideas.

As every savvy investor knows, Warren Buffett didn't make billions by betting on half-baked stocks. He isolated his best few ideas, bet big, and rode them to riches, hardly ever selling. You deserve the same. That's why our CEO, legendary investor Tom Gardner, has permitted us to reveal The Motley Fool's 3 Stocks to Own Forever. These picks are free today!
