    DFR's shift to NASDAQ...

    FWIW- I think this is a good thing, regardless of expense.
    A comparison of exchanges (re: their competing sites)
    should tell you something. When the AMEX was absorbed
    into the NYX earlier this year, DFR (as a now, small-cap)
    got lost in the sauce of Big, lumbering, old-money, slowly
    adaptive mega-cap companies trading in that arena.

    NASDAQ is a desirable environment for Fresh, Innovative (Tech, Retail, etc.) outfits. On top of that, it's the largest US electronic stock market; Has ~3,200 co's; lists more co's; plus... on average, trades more shares per day than any other U.S. market.

    Personally, I have ALWAYS found more robust and stable trading (and profit) done here. My investments in outfits (eg- FINL, AAPL & RIMM to name just a few) have served me well. At NASDAQ, DFR will get the exposure & visibility it needs.

    There are many reasons why companies prefer to be in NASDAQ than the still problematic NYX- Just ask NYSE Euronext CEO Duncan Niederauer. (all imo)
