written by reader Starter stock recommendation?

By hgpark888, May 3, 2013

Hello :)
My name is John and I am from Canada.
I have been greatly interested in stock investing and I have been keeping a simulation account for about 6 months in TSLA, BNS, SWY, MCD, INTC, SAND and few other stocks and it has performed relatively well.

And now, as I have recently graduated and started working I was able to save up and spend about $4000.00 to invest in stock market.

But contrary to spending cyber money on simulation account, I am very cautious about which stocks I should ”actually” start buying or look into.
I am leaning towards buying dividend stocks for first 2 years to establish some grounds first.
I have been keeping keen eyes on stock gumshoe and Travis is great! but, it would be great if I could gather some ideas from fellow investors as it would help young investor to start in a right way.

Currently, I have opened RRSP account through Questrade which is optimized for US Dividend Stocks.

Any advice for beginner investor would be greatly appreciated :)
