The NAIC just reciently took WAG off it's recommended DRIP list due to new excessive fees. Other than that I like the stock but maybe not at present prices. Try other stocks like MO, PG, DBD, SVM, CAG etc. you may like them better. But again WAG is a good company to own At least I think so.
A DRIP list is a list of Dividend Re-investment Programs. NAIC (National Association of Investors Corporation) will help you buy the fisrt share, for a reasonable fee, and sign you up for DRIP of any company on the list. They also produce a magazine called 'Better Investing' which is helpful. However, if you don't mind paying fees and your money is in an IRA an index fund may offer better carefree investing than investing in individual stocks. I like buying individual stocks as a hobby. Also the money paper will do the same thing as NAIC but costs a little more.
You can buy Intel for $100 and anticipate as $2.00 rise, or buy WAG for an extra $1.00 and get a $23.50 rise. Seem's logical that Wag is still a better buy, regardless of the negative hype. Negative hype is a sure sign of a stock being accumulated. Review the last 7 years of WAG on the charts.
