How does everyone buy shares for free? On E*TRADE they charge me 7 bucks a trade

Read their minimum account balance rules.  If that's not it call them. You can definitely trade for free elsewhere with about any account balance.

Fidelity and Charles Schwab both offer free trades.

Is it possible to transfer all holdings to a different firm without selling everything and cashing out?

Yes, I believe you should be able to do a transfer of assets without selling anything.

Yes, it is called a transfer "in kind"

And when you call they'll suddenly have a super good deal for you if you'll stay.  It's too much like TV and phone contracts.

I was a week late getting this one out, but I got it done!

Good update. Looks like you are hanging in there with the income. This may be your most challenging year for a long time. I think you'll be mostly out of the woods on potential dividend cuts in the next 60 days. You can make another trade or two, but no self-respecting DGI guy wants to disrupt his yield on cost by starting over lol. Smile

Now on to more important things. GO TWINS!!!! Baseball is my sport. I had accommodations booked for home opening weekend. Not many things I look more forward to than sitting in Target Field watching the Bomba Squad. They are so much fun to watch with all that pop in their bats. I am hoping against hope they can salvage over half of the season. Some games in AZ would be better than nothing, but it won't be the same.

I may blindly follow you.  There is nothing at all rational about the move up.  Demand outlook has changed exactly zero and that will matter soon enough.

I hear ya on the Bomba Squad. It was such a great off-season, and this team was looking special. It would be such a shame if there is no season when for the first time in a long time, the Twins are legit WS contenders.
