Re: BrownCO morphing into E-Trade ...
I had very bad experience with etrade and feel bad for Brown customers.
Brown was known for much better service, and had much larger avg account size. If etrade just switches them over, there will likely be a mass exodos. Maybe they'll keep some seperation, if they're smart, or do something special for the larger Brown customers.
Would love to see a competitor steal all the Brown customers from Etrade. Like Fidelity lowering their prices close to Brown's, for customers with accounts over 100K or 250K.
Too bad Fidelity charges $75 to buy a mutual fund. Brown, 5 to buy or sell.
