The economy isn't is the best of shape. Market returns aren't the only reason to keep assets over paying off a loan. Depending on the OPs overall financial situation, keeping the assets and paying some interest maybe a safer position.

So far this year I made in realized gains Schedule D transactions this year of the stock market is $842.57 in my individual brokerage account.

The $1000 I borrowed recently I bought JPM 5.85% long bond under par. Eventually the market will realize JPM paper is worth more than par. In the mean time I can collect some interest every 6 months. Right Now I have 2 different bonds of JPM.

Seriously I was extremely very stressed this morning about this I emailed both instutions and ask the question that I concerned about. I'm ok guys I'm spoiled by being in a very small cu where I don't have to show by drivers licence to deposit money at the branch. I gave up banking at the large banks in Arizona because I got tired of being nickled and dimed to death.

As far as my vote on the merger I voting against it. I pray that I'm making the right decision.
