Iam new to investing (or learning about it more accurately). My question is this...my company offers a 401k with a annual match of $300.

With that amount of a matching contribution, would i be better off to place my income into a DRIP or some other stock vehicle..or stay with the 401k.

Persoanl finances are such that i can only contribute a couple hundred a month right now...but am vigorously working at climbing out of "the hole".

I haven't been "real satisfied" with the return of my 401k....approximately 8 - 9 % on the average.
