And with trades costing $7 or $8 you will want to watch that commissions don't become a major item. 2% or less is usually best. That implies a $350 minimum investment.For smaller amounts, dividend reinvestment programs can work well. They allow you to buy more of the same stock for a proportionate share of the commission.I am not up to date on this aspect, but there have been Sharebuilder programs that let you work with smaller sums. Perhaps others can provide details or suggest others.
