Are travel expenses to attend an annual stockholder meeting of a company in which I own stock deductible in any way? as an investment expense?

Investment expenses are only deductible up to the amount of investment income received. All investment expenses are deducted on schedule A, Misc. deductions which are subject to the 2% floor. Therefore, it may or may not be worth it.

But, did you got for the annual stockholder's meeting or was it part of a vacation? Be careful in allocating if the trip was not specific for the stock.
