My real-world stocks are doing quite nicely - the best right now is AHR - went up almost a dollar a share in one trading day. Nice.

When you're talking hundreds and hundreds of shares, the pennies add up. This is fun, and with all of the freebies and incentives from Sharebuilder, including 2 free real-time trades and a $50 account bonus, that takes care of most all of my my recent $9.95 a trade commission fees.
