Microsoft (MSFT) is under $60 today. I think that's a good company for a youngster like you to buy and follow. You can open an account at www.financialcafe.com and not have to worry about how much you are starting with.

Good luck to you, you're going to do great! Don't be distressed if the market or your stocks just go sideways for a few years - they'll take off by the time you are twenty five. My son is also fifteen and he likes Texas Instruments (TXN), but I don't think it'll ever do as well as MSFT. My son also owns Exxon-Mobile (XOM), which his grandmother bought for him and is a very conservative choice.

PS, I found a good website that you might enjoy checking out: www.investorhome.com. You can learn a LOT there (and here too, of course). Ultimately, you should be concerned with stuff like asset allocation and that's what you should study. For now, I think buying some individual stocks would be very fun and educational.
