Stock Market 101c

Today, I will conclude my series on the stock market by explaining how one goes about buying stock.

Most often, stock is purchased through a brokerage or by using Dividend Reinvestment Plans (DRIPs) and Direct Investment Plans (DIPs).  There are full-service brokerages that offer expert advice and will manage your stocks for you and then there are discount brokerages which give less personal attention but will end up costing you less money in the long run.  DRIPs and DIPs allow individuals to invest money in companies over intervals of time for a small fee.
