AirCal:<the commissions would eat %5 right off the top, and I might end up only owning 3-4 shares of certain higher priced stocks.>First, how many shares you own is pretty much irrelevant to your situation. Otherwise, owning a single share of Berkshire Hathaway @ ~$77,000 wouldn't have any appeal at all. Second, while 5% is a large percentage, it really boils down to next to nothing in actual dollar terms. Assuming $10-12 commissions, you're sweating the load over a 12-pack or two of decent beer. Do you lose sleep over buying an extra case of beer? If the FF appeals to you, jump in! Of course, there's always the UV2/RP2 option, which would cut your trading costs in half, with higher volatility (& returns, normally) as the price of those screens. Or you could buy 2 Keystone (or F90, etc.) stocks in a sort of souped-up Dozens. The possibilities are endless.Chris
