I pay a commission fee for every stock transaction. I also pay a fee for the mutual funds I invest in on top of the fee the fund charges. And I recently found out the funds that I'm invested in pays a fee to EJ for the number of people invested in their funds. Something not disclosed when I purchased the funds to start with. When I spoke with my broker about other funds that EJ offers he attempted to steer me away from those funds. And a couple of stocks he recommended for me to purchase turned out not to be so great according to Morning Star. When I spoke to my broker he told me that they are a recommend by their research guys. Well if I can research on Morning Star and the only reason he recommends buying is because the company research says so is not good service to me.
