I have other investments with Morgan Stanley but I'm sure they won't like my buying 1 share and asking for the certificate to send directly to the company in order to do DRIP investing.

I'd ask. Be sure to have it transferred to you. When I brokered at AG Edwards, they did it for me for less than usual commission and an insurance fee ($2+ or so). Then they grew tired of me buying a company or two every other month and none of their loaded mutual funds and asked me to either buy some funds or take my business elsewhere. I did.

I hope eventually AGE eventually goes out of business, not that I would hold a grudge that long...

Morgan Stanley is there to help you. Not the other way around. Ask them, they could say no, they could charge a lot to do it. Ask anyway. What have you got to lose?
