Buying Stocks

What should I do if I wish to invest in an area that my broker is unfamiliar with?

Ask him for a referral to another broker who is an expert in this area and has the necessary credentials and education, as well as training, to help you invest.

Stockbrokers are compensated in various ways—typically, on commission—for the work they do. Talk to your broker to make sure you understand how much of your investment goes to pay for the services you receive.
