If the amount you are planning on investing in a year isn't that high, buying a newsletter might not be a good idea IMO.I would take the amount of money you are planning to invest in a year, and then add up the amount of your expenses for buying (and selling) for the number of stocks you are thinking of purchasing along with the cost of the newsletter and any other expenses (taxes when you sell if in a taxable account for example) you will have and see what percentage these costs are. If, for example, you are planning on investing $2000 in 2008 and you think you will buy 2 stocks, the buy and sell fees (I doubt you will sell these stocks within the year, but I like to figure in the sell fee for the future) say $7 x 2 ea, totaling $28, and you buy one investment service for $200 - this adds up to $228. How well is your investment going to have to do just to break even after you deduct all those expenses - something to ponder. <G>Cheryl
