I've also been thinking of using Temper. The only thing I was trying to decide was whether or not to subscribe to a MoneyPaper periodical in order to get the cheaper fee.

The cheapest subscription costs $36 in order to pay the $15 stock transaction fee. Non-subscribers pay a $20 transaction fee. So in order to recoup the subscription costs, you would have to purchase stock in 7 different companies (actually you'd still be short $1), on the eighth purchase you'd be ahead.

So in terms of fees, subscribing would only pay off if you bought stock in 8 different companies in one year.
