I just bought into a DRP account with Pfizer. I have been watching the stock & the company for a while (before Viagra - imagine!)and I finally had enough $$$ to get started. With a 30 year timeline in front of me I feel good about this.

My question is this - I sent in the check and recieved acknowledgement of my purchase - but will I get actual stock certificates? or are they held in trust by the company.

This is my first venture into Foolish investing - I bought an index fund in 97, and started a Roth IRA last year. When I read about the DRP, it was with a great sigh of relief, because I could now invest with my favorite companies directly, and without great sums of money! Wheee!
