But moving accounts from one brokerage to another was such a royal pain that I do not think I will ever do it again. It took many months to effect the transfer. First, they moved the stock. But they forgot the dividends on the stock. So I had them move the dividends, but they forgot the interest on the dividends, etc., etc., etc., ....

Dividends can dribble in over a number of months after the stock has been transferred. I received a number of small checks after transferring an account. The brokerage annoyed me to the point that it was worth it.
