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.
