Several hundred companies sell shares of stock directly to the public. Investors can bypass even the discount online broker with commission free direct -stock-purchase (DSP) and dividend-reinvestment plans (DRIPs). Here are a few that are available.
A searchable list of companies with direct stock plans.

The DRIP Investor (Direct ReInvestment Plan)
Little Free information but the link is supplied for your convenience. You can join to find out which companies have dividend reinvestment plans.
If you would like to join a DRIP but cannot find a broker who will sell you one share to get started ( and pay a commission for such a small purchase), here is a site that offers a solution. It is also a place where you can buy a share of stock as a gift (especially useful for grandparents).
Please help us keep our page up to date by informing us of changed or broken links. Keep us up to date on links that you recommend. If a new broker link is suggested, we will consider their inclusion in the list. Thanks!
