What would you recommend?

Let's say I wanted to buy a few stocks in a certain prolific computer company...

I'm not really excited about paying fees of any kind, least of all any recurring 'maintenance' fees. I don't expect to do a lot of buying or selling, probably just buy and hold for a good couple of years.

What service would you recommend? Why do you like who you use now?

Thanks.

stocks are risky. put your faith in the government. buy war bonds or whatever those things are.

Fidelity, Schwab, TDWaterhouse, eTrade, etc do not have maint. fees on any accounts. I think eTrade has the lowest min. and lowest commission. That said, it's not a good idea to put all of your investable money into one or stocks or sectors. You'd be better off with a good ETF which has diversification built-in.

I would recommend a subject line that addresses your topic. But that is just me . . .

Otherwise stick with Chupa2.

I use Scottrade. $7 per trade. No maintenance fees.

And I would be very careful about putting too much into Apple right now.

I think the current ceiling is estimated at $225 right now, and it is at $190 currently... but if there is a big downturn in the econmomy, this stock has a lot of room for "shrinkage".

Not saying it's not a good investment, just echoing what others have said about putting too many of your eggs in this one particular basket.
