Thank you for your input as well. I am afraid your reply was posted while I was responding to the prior messages.
I wonder why the threshold has been set for "Unrelated business income" at $1,000? It seems unreasonable. If my aggregate share of this line item was a positive number, then the likelihood of it exceeding $1,000 would only be determined by the number of shares I posess. That doesn't seem like a fair determining factor to create a reporting benchmark. Or am I looking at this the wrong way?

In any event, is it likely that the "unrelated business income" will remain negative? I know that no one has a crystal ball, but is that part of the benefit of the investment in a non-401-K world?

Thank you again.
