By the way, has anyone else here noticed that the financial statement was dated 12/30/00, but was not mailed out to account holders until 4/16/01,

Prior to posting this accusation, you should be aware that when an audit is done, it is done after the year closes, which for B&H is obviously December, 2000. An audit can take anywhere from 3, 4, 5 plus weeks or more depending on the engagement. It is not as if the year ends and BANG, January 2nd the auditors are at the door and audit everything in a day. By the time the audit is completed could be well into February and March...which by the dating of the auditors letter was the end of March 2001. Getting the report to clients by April 16th is good timing.

It appears that B&H deliberately withheld the statement in order to hide the negative info from all the people (like me) who opened IRAs with them. Not the kind of honesty and forthcoming behavior one expects from one's broker. And you want to pay extra fees to help this company?!

And it appears that you have jumped to a incorrect conclusion.

This is the exact kind of negative information that has been posted on this board confusing the average investor. It is neither fair to the posters on this board nor to B&H to make a statement without getting your facts straight.

Please, please read or ask before posting.

The rest of us...Fool on....
