An idea to kick around. If you have established a position in a stock and you intend to hold that position for a few years, have B&H send you your share certificates. They get to collect a $30 fee, and you get your stocks, safe and sound via certified mail. (Takes a couple of weeks. It is a good idea to keep the certificates in a fireproof safe at home or a safe deposit box.) I have already gotten a certificate for one of my 12 stocks and plan to get 2 more after the holiday chaos is done.
