It could rise $200 in a single day.

All of them, via an index fund.

Investing in just one stock is a huge risk. You might gain a lot of money, but you might lose everything.
Investing in several stocks is less risky. Some will go up and some will go down, but if the companies are unrelated, they should average out to a gain in the long run.

Most people don't have enough money to buy lots of stocks. For example, a single share of Amazon costs well over $1000. Furthermore, trading lots of stocks would incur a lot of trading fees.
A mutual fund lets you pool your money with other investors to buy a diverse mix of stocks. But traditional funds also charge high fees, to pay a manager. 80% of these managers do worse than the market.
An index fund charges a lower fee to skip the manager and just buy every stock in a pre-existing index such as the S&P 500.

During the Bush market meltdown it was shown that the stock market is a 'sucker's game'. The whole market was being used to bilk the small investor. Big brokerages were found to be doing insider trading, manipulating stock prices, and selling stocks to their trusting customers that they knew were bad stocks, so they could bet against them. The market is tilted towards large 'institutional' investors.

So my advice is to NEVER EVER EVER take advice from a broker. They will recommend stocks that work well for -them- not necessarily for you. IOW they make money even if you lose money.

What you should do is to get an account at a no-commission brokerage, like Charles Schwab (not Schwb in particular, that's just an example). Then ask for literature on Mutual Funds and ETFs (Electronically Traded Funds). These have records of how well they've done in the last year, the last 5 years, and the life of the fund. Find a few that have done well and divide your money between them. They should be in different 'sectors' because when one part of the market does badly others often do well.

Buy them, put them away, forget about them for a few years. Don't check them every day, don't constantly buy and sell trying to improve your position. Years ago there was a fad for 'day trading' and a lot of people lost fortunes doing that.

Mutual funds would be better than individual stocks. A stock can go belly up overnight.

The stock market is like a casino, and no one can tell you the results of gambling with any certainty. Study the companies you're interested in, and make your own determination as to which ones might be worth investing in. Do not take the advice of random strangers on the internet in regards to how to invest your own money.

No idea. We don't know your risk tolerance,time frame, tax situation, how much debt you have, etc.
I would not recommend investing in any single stocks. I would invest in good growth mutual funds. With the market at all time highs, we are likely to see a sharp correction soon, I would either wait to invest, or dollar cost average into the market. Buy low, sell high, not the other way round.

With stocks and shares the golden rule is you should only invest an amount you can afford to lose. It's much safer to invest in bricks and mortar as risk is negligible and over time values rise.

Legal weed. When the federal government finally legalizes it, it will be america's biggest cash crop.
