    I back late.

    What I did was find 4 stocks I believe are DRIPS. You can search companies you interested in, for example; I typed " Wisconsin Energy ". Found their web-site and went to it. Then look around on the page for a link to; "Investor Relations". Good luck!

    http://www.wisconsinenergy.com/invest/stockpurchpl...

    http://www.aep.com/investors/transferagent/default...

    http://ir.tyson.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=65476&p=irol-i...

    http://investor.conagrafoods.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=9...

    There many ways of doing this. I just give this.

    I use Scottrade, but, there are others. Another option many never learn of are "DRP" or "DRIPS". Many low risk stocks may be a DRIP. Below are two links to help educate you. Motley Fool mentions on the first page how many companies use a third party. Here my example. Years ago I bought ARKLA Gas which I think now is owned by Huston Industries. ARKLA had DRP and I had all my Dividends (Quarterly) and a little extra each month go toward buying this Stock. A Bank (Third Party)handled the Transactions at no cost to myself. AND, get this, by using the DRP option to buy ARKLA Stock, I also received a 10% discount off market value at the time of purchase.

    So, the best website will be those that help you learn about DRP and DRIPS (I think they the same).

    I think I still have an old list of some of these, if I can find it or a good link I will add a little more information.

    I found the list, many, but, it like 1998 so things may be different. It will be best to learn and then search. Wish I could help more.

    With stocks its best to invest in index mutual or exchange traded funds--these are mutual funds that track lists of stocks, for example the S&P 500, a list of the 500 biggest stocks in the US. If you buy an exchange traded fund that follows the S&P 500 you'll effectively hold stock in 500 large companies, which is a lot safer than owning indiviudal stocks (one company may collapse, but 500 aren't going to.)

    All major brokerage firms provide their clients with on-line services, including trading platforms, latest market & financial news and research.

    Customer need to select the site that is best for them. Traders have requirements in a site, while investors have other requirements.

    Although most sites are geared to general securities and commodities, however customers may have special needs for the types of products they trade, and the markets in which they trade.

    It seems that the most popular firms for on-line investing all of which provide excellent platforms and services are; Scottrade; Chas.Schwab; TDAmeritrade; Fidelity; E-Trade and Thinkorswim.

    However, most major firms do not appreciate customers that deal in low priced stocks, of the firms listed above Scottrade and E-Trade will accept low price stocks.

    Firms like Vanguard, Fidelity, and TDAmeritrade do not encourage customers to trade low price stocks
