Charlie,If the trade is worth doing, then the cost of doing it is the least of one’s concerns.It's all a matter of degree, and a 3%+ commission bite (and that's assuming he only buys one stock, not several) or jumping through hoops to directly invest to avoid the commission does not seem worth it just yet, at least to me. If nothing else, your son should at least be aware of the headwind he's creating for himself when the principal is small relative to the fees incurred.Mike
