I've often wondered if we really need brokers holding our stocks. Can't we take possession of the stock certificates ourselves, and stash them in our bank box?
Then, I guess all dividends, etc are sent directly to us, right? It seems easier, somehow, but is there something I don't know about this? Do companies charge to send you the actual stock certificates??? Do brokers charge a fee for this also??
Sure would appreciate some answers here...
