I have a $1000 to put in the stock market and Best Buy has always intrigued me. Unfortunately, I didn't have the money to buy any until its recent upclimb, but I'd still like to buy it. It is at an all time high, which is scary, but I think it has potential to keep expanding for quite a few years ahead. What does everyone think about this stock?

First off, with only $1K to invest (which would buy about 14 shares of BBY) you would probably be better served by sticking it into a mutual/index fund and making monthly additions until you accumulated additional funds.

Second, if you were truly dead set on BBY, you might consider looking into a DRIP/Direct Stock purchase plan thru Equiserve; which will allow you to make periodic purchases of fractional shares.

I'm got a small holding in BBY. I'm seriously considering selling pretty soon.
The good news seems to be priced in now and any kind of set back would wallop the shares.

The DRIP through Equiserve.com is kind of expensive to participate in ($18 setup, $5 per additional purchase and fees to reinvest dividends).

You could always consider purchasing BBY through Sharebuilder.com for $4.00 per purchase and reinvest dividends for free.

As for the stock itself, its probably a good long-term (5+ years) investment. However, I could definitely see them pulling back from $70+ a share if they ever struggle for a quarter or two.

Sharebuilder also has fees, but is another good choice for building a small portfolio.
