Nope - I'm a Fidelity Fan too.* Have had an IRA and a* mutual fund account with them for about 15 years.* Started my individual stock account there about 2 yrs. ago.* Just moved my Roth there last month.* My reasons:
1.* Good solid funds -* FLPSX and FCNTX have been the basis of my portfolio for years. (before I could even say "my portfolio" with a straight face).
2.* Low stock trade fees.* Once you get to "Silver" level, they are $10.95 per trade.
3.* Easy to use website with all the info about all your accounts at your fingertips.
4.* Really helpful telephone customer service 24/7.
5.* They've been around a long time, aren't going to disappear or merge anytime soon, and my Dad recommends them.
