Disconnect between SEC fees and what I'm being charged by Fidelity. Last big sale was in December. 800 shares with gross proceeds of $17,544.00. $10.95 Commission and 46 cents Activity Assessment Fee were deducted. The sale was before Fido reduced commissions to $7.95.

At $1.69/$1000 the SEC fee would be $29.65. I seriously doubt they are eating that much just to give me low commissions. They're great to work with but they aren't that nice.
