All depends if  you're buying to hold or to make a quick buck.
Don't buy Chipotle (unless hillary buys another burrito).

If your still new to this, I would suggest staying with safer bets.
In any short span of time any stock could easily swing 5-10% in any direction, regardless of the long term direction of the stock.
Speculating can be fun and profitable in a bull market, but trading frequently has fees that cut out a big chunk of profits, and when the bear market hits, speculative stocks usually drop faster and harder than others (which can easily erase all the gains you've ever made, and then some more.)

There are lots of safer investments right now that you can lock up long term, and profit heck of a lot more than 6%.

Anyways, enjoy the cash you made so far, hopefully you make a lot more.
Live forever or die trying.

FYI
The only thing I know is that I don't loss by earning money in stocks (sounds strange, huh?),

My accountant told me some people could earn a few thousand bucks but they don't know that they're losing out on some tax credits which is grater then what they earned, but by me that's not the case so I shouldn't worry about it, that's all I know...


i wish thats the case by me.  i lost many tax credit for earning a few hundred bucks!

I like financials like C WFC AXP COF
BRK.B
Tech- INTC maybe AAPL and CHL
WMT
ALK- near its all time high, but still at just 13p/e. I bought at all time high a few years ago and it has done really, really well.
Some other stocks that look great but I didn't have time to research further:
JNJ MMM CAT

Note:
I am not an expert, these are just stocks that I have either invested in or considering to invest in.
They usually have low P/E, have good/great book value per share, and a sustainable dividend (which I enroll in a drip). While I do feel good about my picks in the long run, it would be best to buy like 5-6 of them to assure you are diversified and mitigate the risk of one going bad. A proven investing method for beginners is to invest a set amount in SPY every month. Most investors don't beat the S&P, so if you could match the S&P's returns over a long period of time you will probably do pretty well.
Live forever or die trying.

There's no such thing as fully safe.  Always realize that stock prices can change in a day. 
Longer term.  I look for stocks that I understand what they do and how they make money. Among other factors.  Nice if they have dividends that they've increased over time (dividend aristocrats)
NKE- nike.  SBUX- starbucks. RAI-renolds. COST-costco. HD-home depot.

I would go with MSFT for a long term stock. They are big in cloud computing which is gonna (if its not already) be the future - no need for hardware- which is very low maintenance. Meaning the profits can be great. criticism accepted ;)

I'm not sure you understand how cloud computing works,
but their is a crap load of hardware that Microsoft needs to constantly purchase and maintain.

I don't know why people wait til a stock doubles before deciding to purchase.
It was a great buy for me at $31- at $56 and 37 p/e I would pass.
