Dispite your bad experience, IRA's are still a good thing and you probably want to continue contributing. Why not drop another $2000 into the account as cash, then transfer the whole thing to a deep discount broker who offers free IRA's. That would close the bad account, hang on to the Fine Host stock, and set you up for some Foolish investing.

You probably could put the $2000 directly into the new brokerage account, but its been my experience that having a little real money involved gets these things done more quickly.
