Has anyone looked at Schwab (SCH) as a potential RM? I don't personally use them, though I know many online investors (my brother for one) who swear by them despite them charging 2-3 times the competitions prices for online trading. They get good marks in my book for convenience (not only online but thousands of offices around the country), gross and net margins, and are in an industry that is growing fast. Compared to the other traditional brokerages they seem a bit more able to change and adapt. Plus, I have heard that they have a large portion of online investors as loyal clients.

I haven't run all the numbers b/c I wasn't sure who to compare them to: big brokerages like Merrill Lynch, or to newer online services like EGRP?

Any other ideas for potential RM companies? I'm a new and excited RM investor and would like some ideas from others.
