    If you don’t what you’re doing, you need to stick to bank CDs and money market accounts until you learn about stocks.

    despite how others may answer your question, do not put your money in CD’s or invest using a broker or financial consultant of any kind. the fact that you are 18 and are already asking how to invest in stocks means that you have the desire, intelligence and motivation to learn how to trade on your own. now…to answer your question:

    i use Tradeking myself. the trades are only $4.95, which is lower than most other sites by far. they also have great live customer support, so if you need help figuring out how to execute your trade, they can walk you through it.
    as far as picking stocks, start by tracking companies that you already buy products from. where do you shop? buy groceries? gas? car? clothes? department stores? fast food? beverages? this will give you a good starting place. start by tracking a stock for no less than 30 days. make note of the lowest and highest the stock goes within those 30 days. dont just keep track of the closing price, but keep track of where the stock moves throughout the day. the easiest way to see the 30 day high/low is to look up a stock symbol on Yahoo Finance and underneath the data chart is a link for 1M, or 3M. click that link and check it out. you dont want to ever buy a stock when it is currently at its highest price. you want to be able to get some movement after you buy it. also, never use all of your money at once. be prepared to buy more shares if a stock goes lower…this gives you a better average price on your investment. only buy stocks when the data you’ve collected allows you to feel that you are getting a good price. for example, if the 30 day high was 10.00 and the low was 7.00, then a good price might be around 8.50 or less…assuming the stock is not going down on that particular day you are buying. if it is, let it go down and then buy it. look at it like this….if someone was trying to sell you a bottle of water for 10.00, you’d know you were getting ripped off…thats because you know that water should be around $1.00-2.00 a bottle. you should view stock in the same way. determine what your “fair price” is and go for it.
    also, just advice, dont try to go for “big” profits right away. start by just making $100, or so, profit… and do that a few times. this will allow you to test out your theories and strategies without keeping your money locked into a bad stock for too long. just think of it as practice.

    If you want to get the whole saving/investing thing started early, I would just toss the money in a set of index funds. I recommend Vanguard (low fees and high quality product – index funds are more or less all the same), diversifying across a few different indices (depending on what you wish, you could spread it across the S&P500 fund, the international equity fund, a corporate bond fund, and treasuries).

    AFTER THAT, I would then begin the “learning” phase. What most people do not understand is that putting your money in a few companies is unbelievably risky unless you really know what you’re doing. You can’t just invest in names you know, the key is how much you’re paying for them. With your money tied relatively safely in index funds, I would start researching individual companies. Take a look at the Investor Relations section of their websites, and read through the most recent 10-K. Don’t worry if its unbelievably confusing, it’s honestly not meant to be fully understandable by the general public. Your first time through, look through the verbal parts. Read the sections that describe the business, read sections like the Management’s Dicussion and Analysis – skim through some of the numbers if you wish. Watch, if you have access, financial news programs, the Wall Street Journal, finance sections of news websites like CNN. Go to Yahoo! Finance or similar sites and see what the recent news is for specific companies as well as the economy as a whole, and look at how this news is impacting stock prices. Use Investopedia and Wikipedia.

    What’s important that this stage is that you learn. Avoid getting trapped into the world of people who have never opened a 10-K but think they’re stock market geniuses because their uncle’s brother’s friend’s barber had a great stock tip. One really good thing to do once you get into college is go to the business school library if there is one and ask how you can get access to equity research reports of companies. I would recommend that, at all costs, avoid technical analysis. It’s an interesting idea but at the retail level (what you and 99.9% of the rest of the public is at), it’s just not a very good idea.

    Personally, I think sogotrade is best among all online brokerages. You can get a lot of free trades: about 100 free trades with 500 minimum deposits. It has very good customer services, it also has live help, and you can chat with representatives about any question. After that, only 3 dollar for each trade, pretty sweet when compared with other online brokerages.

    AIG was be a best stock to invest if you plan to invest for a long term, because AIG is too big to fail and beside AIG no longer need government bailout money. if you invest in AIG are now you returning profit is 10-30 times in 3-5 years.

    As others here have noted, investing in individual stocks can be quite risky – i.e. there is a chance that you could lose all the money you invest – and most financial advisors would counsel you to invest in stock index mutual funds instead. However, it can be fun and a great learning experience to pick your own stocks and at 18 you can probably afford to risk at least some of your money for the chance to get greater returns if you’re good at it. After all, Warren Buffet didn’t become a billionaire by investing in mutual funds. I’m no Warren Buffet, but I do ok with stock investing, probably about as well as I would putting my money into index funds. It takes me more time to think about it, but I enjoy it as a hobby. If you are going to do this, I would advise you not to just pick stocks randomly or take suggestions from random people. Read some books about stock investment, and be disciplined about how you invest. There are many good investment methods and the strange thing about them is that they often contradict each other. Some will tell you to invest in stocks that are undervalued and hold them long term, others will tell you to invest in stocks that are growing at a fast pace and be quick to dump them when other stocks start growing faster. There are lots of ways to make money in the stock market and lots of ways to lose it as well. Investing in a disciplined way means that you will stick to a good strategy and not react emotionally to the inevitable swings. You will lose some and gain some. The point is to gain more than you lose and hopefully more than you would if you just kept your money in the bank. I place online trades with Firstrade. I’ve never had any problems with them, but other people here have suggested online brokerages that charge a bit less per trade. I think that in the long run you will find that the differences in trading cost among online brokerages will be dwarfed by the amounts that you gain or lose with the actual stock trade. So pick an online brokerage that you like, hopefully one with lower than average transaction costs, but don’t necessarily pick the one that has the lowest trading cost if another brokerage offers quicker service or better information. If you don’t want to spend time learning about companies and analyzing their stocks, then mutual funds or ETFs are the better way to go. Choosing ones that are tied to a stock index and have the lowest fees is probably your best bet in that case.
