Are there any special tax considerations of which to be aware when investing in this BDC? Are there any special Schedule K-1s like for MLPs or anything else? Any benefits or restrictions in holding in a tax or IRA account other than the high current income? TIA.
I agree. I have to laugh because back when everyone on the board was moaning that we needed to get a CEO asap, I knew it wouldn't be long before they would have a change of opinion.
I thought that the appearance of Google Glass was just fine. In fact, if you compare it to the hideous glasses that Sony are coming out with and they look spectacular. I hope Google comes out with something soon. The Sony product is so ugly that I think it could hurt the image of the product category. Maybe others disagree with my aesthetics assessment.
Well it wasn't as easy as a call to my broker. I ended up with multilple calls to Fidelity, contacting NSAT (who was very responsive), and calling DTC to confirm eligibility of which Fidelity was claiming NSAT wasn't DTC eligible. After finally convincing them that their information was wrong, they fixed it in 5 minutes.
Thanks so much for your information with Ameritrade which was also a big help.
Hopefully I can pick up a few shares at a reasonable price before the conference call which was just announced for next week.
Wow, that was a bunch of typing. Thanks for the updates. I will have to read through them a couple more time to absorb everything. I am glad you made it safely.
Thanks for the info. My normal commission costs are very reasonable. I don't know what is up with this extra fee. I am trading the symbol NSAT so it should be NYSE MKT. In fact, I might not have even noticed it rolled in there if it wasn't for a transaction spreadsheet that I use. Good luck to you. I hope I get this straightened out so I can accumulate.
I am not looking to be a trader but it would take some time to build a larger position in the company especially with the lower volumes. It is an additional $50 per trade. That would be a significant cost. I like to buy with limit orders and sometimes not many shares execute. For instance, if only 100 shares execute, my commission cost is over 10 percent of the share cost and that is just for a one way transaction. I get the same costs selling.
Thanks for your input. If you don't mind, can I ask you brokerage cost for a NSAT trade with Ameritrade? I would like some information with which to go back to my broker and beat them into submission.

This week seemed like a week off. The exchanges were closed on Monday with the holiday. The boards seemed quieter than usual and most volumes were down a bit. It must be the cold weather disrupting the normal schedule of things.
Jazz9292 has taken the lead by about 4 whole percentage points. Only a few more weeks to go.

It is not exactly my favorite either. I still get nauseous at the mention of the symbol due to past experiences.
Wow, I had to give you a rare thumbs up. At least you are explaining your position and thought process even though I don't agree.
It is the Swamp Rabbit Trail. It is about 20 miles and goes through town so there are probably a bunch of road crossings. In any case, it might be worth checking out.
SAN FRANCISCO - Sony on Tuesday began taking orders for SmartEyeglass Internet-linked eyewear, moving ahead in the market as Google steps back to revise its Glass strategy.
The offering from the Japanese consumer electronics comes amid growing interest in wearable computing, but also questions about whether consumers will warm to connected eyewear.
SmartEyeglass connects with smartphones and then superimposes text, images or other information onto whatever real scene is in view.
A version of the eyewear tailored for software developers will be available in Japan, Germany, Britain, and the United States on March 10. The price in the US will be $840. In Europe it will be 670 plus applicable taxes.
SmartEyeglass for enterprises will also be available in March in France, Italy, Spain and elsewhere.
Along with the hardware, Sony will release an upgraded software development kit "to tap into the ingenuity of developers to improve upon the user experience that the SmartEyeglass provides."
Sony is encouraging software makers to develop fun, hip, or functional applications for SmartEyeglass so people will be enticed to buy the eyewear on track for commercial release in 2016
Sony said that it "has its eyes set on the future of wearable devices and their diversifying use cases, and it hopes to tap into the ingenuity of developers to improve upon the user experience that the SmartEyeglass provides."
Sony said it sees a wide range of uses for the eyewear, beyond the obvious display of information at eye level without having to turn attention to another device.
It sees "considerable implications for AR (augmented reality), which holds great potential in the domain of professional use as well, such as when giving instructions to workers at a manufacturing site or when transmitting visual information to security officers about a potential breach," the Sony statement said.
Google Glass sidelined
Google in January halted sales of its Internet-linked eyewear Glass but insi
