    Sold a couple hundred shares today. I sat down at 8AM for what I assumed would be a cluster and at 8:06 the shares were sold and transferred to my checkbook. Kudos Brown for switching to Compushare.

    Easy when sold in blocks of 100. Under 100 you have use special forms.

    Now you can transfer that income from your checkbook right to UW-Madison.

    ​Would consider dumping your Apple stock also.

    So many people go to their grave with a load of stock because they don't want to pay Uncle Sam. 80% of free money is still free money.

    Landmark Credit Union has my Bucky money. This money is for the old man.

    If you have kids - can't you "gift" it to your children tax-free under a certain $$ amount for the value of the shares gifted?

    Probably. I plan on spending it before that happens.

    You are right. Trying to sell under 100 shares is like going back to the 1930's. Filling out paperwork and writing down those freekin partial shares (9.012863788) etc. Typical UPS run operation LOL

    Monster-
    Did you need a broker to sell your stock?
    It seems I heard that somewhere and thought it was kinda funny since I didn't need a broker to buy it.

    ​Go to the website, click sell. Done. Says the fee will be $10.

    I have been trying to figure out how to buy UPS stock..

    ​Is there a way to have it auto deducted from my paycheck?

    I only participated in the stock purchasing program briefly back in 2010 and shut it off. It grew to 9.21 shares and is worth over $800. I'm thinking that maybe I will sell it.

    I sold 9.1 today. All I got was a transaction number and nothing else. It didn't say anything about paperwork. It's definitely not in my bank account yet either.
