You may want to take a look at They are setup for the kind of investing you are talking about. You can purchase fractional shares, setup automatic monthy investments for dollar cost averaging, and have dividends reinvested. The cost for each trade is $2.99 for purchases. And you can open the account for as little as $20. They are not currently setup so that you can purchase shares in all companies so make sure you verify that the companies you want to purchas are on their list (or you can request that they be added).


P.S. They charge more (I think $5.00 for sales but then they are setup for people who want to Buy and HOLD not just trade.
