I bought ten shares of SBUX

I bought ten shares of Starbucks for $15.66 a share:
Your order has been placed.

Your order to buy 10.0000 shares of STARBUCKS CORP(SBUX) was placed on 04/28/2008 at 7:59:58 pm (ET).

The base commission on this trade is $9.95.
I have no idea if that $9.95 commission fee is good or not. Don't care Just wanted to try it out (after opening an online account back in 2004 and never being brave enough to buy anything.)

Why Starbucks? The price seems low to me and they're doing really poorly right now. I expect a turn-around. And the company interests me personally: the whole started small, got popular, got too big, now making changes to bring it's "spirit" back to the company (along with profits).
