Find the Value of an Old Stock Certificate

This is one financial task you don't do every day, but tracking the value of that old stock certificate can pay off. Here are four ways to get the job done.

1. Start with a free Web search.

2. If that fails, hire a pro. Stock Search International charges $85 to research a stock certificate that it hasn't vetted previously, or $40 to research one of the 40,000 stocks already in its database.

3. For a fee, the company will also help you collect any money you're owed.

4. OldCompany.com charges $39.95 per report to tell you what happened to the company and how to contact a successor, if one exists.
