Thanks for your reply Mike!
My broker is etrade and it does cost me $9.99 ($10) per share. I didn't think much of the commission fee but since you gave me an example, i see it can really hurt my returns. Since i want to own 15 companies, should i use $1000 for all 15 then add more shares to each after? I don't feel $1000 will be enough for high returns.
