hey before everything else, it's important knowing the principles behind what stocks to buy means the difference between becoming extremely wealthy or possibly losing everything. the challenge with finding these principles is not that there are secrets about choosing stocks but rather there is an abundance of incorrect guidance.
instead of following the advice of so-called market gurus, we can follow these timeless principles for deciding what stocks to buy, when to buy, and when to sell, then we improve our chances of being profitable.

My husband other and I are hoping to put some cash into stocks and we are greatly new to this, so I was pondering what the base stock buy would be.
For most investors, and especially NEW investors, you shouldn't be buying individual stocks. You should invest in Mutual Funds. The difference is, Funds are made up of 10's or 100's of stocks. This is used to reduce risk. If 60 stocks go up in a fund, that allows for 40 stocks to go down and still profit. And there are a lot of different funds. Sector funds; like healthcare, technology, transportation, energy, etc. There are index type funds like S&P500 funds (Highly recommended).
If your work place has a 401k type program, that is where you should start off investing. Not only does it offer preset funds that are easy to understand, but there are a lot of tax benefits associated with them. If you don't have a 401k type of plan at work, then look into a private investment option. Believe it or not; MOST BANKS and Credit Unions have an investment section just for investing in funds, bonds, stocks, etc. And most of them have really low fees, because you are keeping your money inside of their financial institution. They obviously want your money in their bank, instead of transferring out a certain amount each month to a different investment company. So check with your bank or credit union.
Remember; stick with funds like Index Funds. If you want to get more specific, there are specific funds like bond funds, technology, health, energy, etc. But I'd start with an index fund like the S&P500
