Edward Jones, one of the few door-to-door retail brokerage outfits left, has been ranked No. 1 in a survey of financial advisers.

Guess all that knocking really pays off:

Edward Jones’ overall score was 9.4 out of 10 possible points. Wells Fargo Advisors, the St. Louis-based brokerage division of Wells Fargo & Co. of San Francisco, ranked fifth with 5.5 points.
