I have started a Roth IRA to supplement my 401K and I have decided to invest in individual blue chip stocks thru Sharebuilder.. This past year I invested $1800 in Disney and Ford with total commision charges of $12... This year I plan on doing the same, but investing $3000 in three companies with a maximum of 6 buys resulting in commisions of $24...IMO, doing this will keep my fees very low over the long term and over the years I will be able to diversify into several companies... Any thoughts????
