It is. I dumped mine at roughly parity when this group alerted me to that fact; then it rocketed up. Oh well.

State/Local bonds' dividends are often untaxed at the Federal level and may be also at the State level if the bond is in your state.

That said, I have no insight as to why Yellen wants this or what is moving behind it.

... I obviously got caught behind the curve on this one (I've been deferring a new build, my existing one is Ivy Bridge) -- since the Egg has now done a backflip from the top to the bottom of my buy-from list, who's good to order from now?

... clicking about and you may be right with the events I recall being past management. Argh.

Much like GME, except the Egg has a long history of basedness and of trashing patent sharks -- but just food for the trust fundies if they can.

(late edit 6/1: had a long history, before becoming an arm of a Chinese conglomerate. WTF.)

Ironically this is actually sort of true ... the trending price is only what it’d be worth if you did sell.

Until then it has a value of nothing (plus proxy voting rights) because it’s a share, not money, until some trades you something for it.

It also has the value of whatever you think it’s worth until you sell it for something.

This is true of everything you own. Each thing has a utilitarian value (what it does for you) and an esthetic value (your appreciation of it) which are at least partly subjective but only at the moment of trade does it have a specific value.

More widely known makers:

VSTO - Vista Outdoors: Federal, CCI, Speer

RGR - Ruger, of course

SWBI - Smith and Wesson

OLN - Olin, as cited by MAGAMight

Out of these right now but did well earlier -- reinvested in tangible goods :p

Search "bittrex amc" turns up a bunch of sources with essentially this story. Posted by request as my original as comment on a silver thread evoked both doubt and interest. (my prior text was a story cited on my broker's (not RH) site).

Not promoting any one bourse but interesting that there’s a counter to the buying shutdown.

“ Bittrex Global to Launch All Stocks Delisted from Robinhood Mentioned: AC NOK SLV Bittrex Global (Bermuda) Ltd. announced that it has listed tokenized stocks for GameStop and AMC Entertainment as well as Nokia, BlackBerry, and iShares Silver Trust. Bittrex Global will continue to list additional stocks as other firms announce a delisting from their platforms.

This decision is motivated to ensure retail investors have exposure to stocks they may wish to trade anytime during any day of the week. Bittrex Global aims to harness the power of distributed ledger technology to enable greater financial inclusion, instant settlement of trades, and lower trading fees.

"We intend to list every stock that gets delisted from platforms like Robinhood, so that even small investors have the same opportunities afforded to multibillion-dollar financial institutions. The current situation feeds into the narrative that the financial system is rigged against the little guy. We believe blockchain, decentralization, and cryptocurrencies will finally put retail investors on a more equal footing with financial institutions who have been gaming the markets for decades," said Bittrex Global CEO Tom Albright.

Bittrex Global's tokenized stock offerings allow users from around the world to trade 24/7 and to buy fractionalized shares if they do not have the resources to buy whole shares.

Bittrex Global's newly listed stocks include:

  • GameStop (GME)

  • AMC Entertainment (AMC)

  • BlackBerry (BB)

  • Nokia Corporation (NOK)

  • iShares Silver Trust (SLV)

These tokenized stocks are available even in countries where accessing U.S. stocks through traditional financial instruments is not possible. Tokenized stocks can be traded alongside over 250 digital coins and tokens listed on the Bittrex Global exchange.”
