Which brokerage you using? do you buy directly from the firm?
I want to know if I should buy vanguard funds from them directly (they have annual $20 account fee) or do you buy from TDbank for example and (I think) you don't pay the $20 fee
How is it adding funds when using a broker do u pay fees every time
Thanx

i happen to use fidelity for that stuff, but vanguard is great. I believe that fee is waived if you agree to have electronic statments. Make a brokerage account there instead of a mutual fund account there and use there index ETFs, which often have even lower expense ratios than their mutual funds.
Transferring funds is generally free with ACH transfer but it takes a few days, as opposed to wire which often has fee but is same day.

AFSI is buying TWGP for $3 a share. Would there be a reason to hold onto the stock untill the summer? Won't it just hover around $3 untill then?

I don't think so. The buyout is contingent on a review of the TWGP books. If there are any discrepancies, or evidence that their books were doctored (which certain people do believe), the sale will be off, which will in turn drive the stock down. In summary, I would wait to buy (or sell until, and buy back after) the sale is complete.

A stable pharmaceutical company.  Not one that never made a profit, but the price keeps rising because they're going to come out with a hot new drug any time now.

Only pick pharmacies that are
