The numbers are astonishing: of the 45 million Americans who invest in today's stock market, only 5 million realize they can invest commission-free through dividend reinvestment plans (DRIPs) and direct stock purchase plans (DSPs). But as more and more investors clamor to cut costs and take control of their own portfolio decisions, this number is destined to rise--dramatically!

"All About DRIPs and DSPs" tells investors everything they need to know about where to find direct investment opportunities, and how to profit from their affordable compounding benefits. Author George Fisher--a pioneer of more than 30 years investing in DRIPs and DSPs--discusses:

* Advice for building a personalized, diversified mutual fund
* How to use PEG (price to earnings growth ratio) to identify superior long-term opportunities

George C. Fisher is publisher of the monthly newsletter Power Investing with DRIPs. He writes weekly analysis for, and has been quoted in various media including The Chicago Tribune, The International Herald Tribune, The Washington Post, and
