The only problem is that you must own or buy at least one share of stock and then enroll. It's a pain in the neck and cost of commission can be steep for small amount. I like the DRIPS that let you buy in directly with the company.
Looks like a hell of a year for the trader in all of us. Here is some relevant information. I found a relatively new website that offers a newsletter and full access to the site for two weeks, free. I tried it out of curiosity in June '98 and have seen some great returns since. (well over 120%)
Just a little something to back up my claim� In '98 his short term picks gained an average of 25% in 10 trading days; long term holds gained an average of over 65% for the year. Hell, this guy picked NSOL,CNET, and CMGI for 3/8/99 (+40), (+40), and (+47 1/2) respectively. Also EPAY on 3/15/99(+21 57/64).
