My advice if you're just beginning is to go with a mutual fund. I'd only advise picking a solo company to invest in after you get your feet wet and experience some ups and downs, but in a way that won't bust you and turn you off forever.
Always invest for the long term, don't panic sell. Set up a regular investment schedule and stick to it regardless of if the market is up or down in the crapper. Doesn't have to be a big amount, just pick a figure that meets the minimum if there is one. Make a plan, stick to it.
Don't pay outrageous fees, they eat away more than you think. Vanguard is good for low fees.
Don't listen to anybody that says "I've got a CAN'T miss opportunity for you".
