Wow, amazed how dead this site has become,. I think back to the new year survey where there was a tally of all the plans people were in. All gone now.
As George's article alluded to DRIPs are dead. Went to EQ for a couple of purchases in the market fall and surprised to find FEES. Bought some Alliant Energy back the early fall and they're weren't any. Now there are. System wouldn't let me add to my Donaldson account so I suspect they're in the process of adding fees. Went to my General Mills and Honeywell, accounts and found fees. Odd, I thought they were required to notify you 30 days before changes to the plan.
Going to transfer shares to my Ameritrade account, free trades and dividend reinvestment.
