PS: You have no need to hold the physical certificate.

One other thing: if you are a complete newbie (and every one of us was at one time), I strongly urge you not to try to pick individual stocks. Invest in a broad market ETF (such as one of the Schwab no-fee plain vanilla ETFs) or no-load/minimal fee mutual fund equivalent (e.g., from Vanguard).
