What I've done is to seldom mix "investing" and "banking." I invest via my brokerage house. I bank through my bank. Any overlap is minimal.

Finally! This morning my Schwab account shows AILLL as being called.



Picked my 800 shares up in Feb, 2016 around a buck over PAR, so not a bad run. Still, disappointed to see it called.
