I get my income tax check back next week and I was thinking about purchasing $1,000 worth of UPS stock. Last year when I was going to the stock price was at $74 now it is at $44.32. Does anyone own stock and have any advice for who I should go to and purchase the stock i.e. Merril Lynch, Scottrade, Etrade. My feeling is that this current economic staus will eventually turn around. Buy low sell high. Is'nt that what you are supposed to do?
