My husband had 3 shares of B stock for Brown Foreman. He passed away in 1999. I still have the stock certificates. Am I able to transfer the stock to my name? Receive dividends? What do I need to do?


thanks.

I am assuming you neither were a joint tenant of the stock nor registered as a beneficiary on a transfer on death registration. If that's the case, your situation is complicated. Sorry, I don't know the answer. The best thing to do is to contact the company and ask them. There should be a name of the transfer agent on the certificates. That's the party you should contact. I have searched for the transfer agent for Brown Forman and received this information:

Equiserve
Shareholder Services
PO Box 43010
Providence RI
800.446.2617

Hope that helps.

brassbin - I have a few titles in my amazon wish list I'll try to pass along. I like a website called stockta - you can just plug in your symbol and get an instant technical analysis. It has really helped me do well, although things can turn fast based on changes in fundamentals or in the macroeconomy.

There are a number of books on technical analysis, although I'm not a big fan. I do pay attention to volume though. I try to figure a buffet type approach. Look at who has cash and a good forseeable future. Not perfect but it was too hard for me to track the charts and I dont follow daily.

Thanks everybody for your help! i know the technicals is just a trend discounting everything else such as the overall economic mode, but still it would be nice to know how to buy/sell to maximize gains.

Default sources for learning

there are a lot of sources on the internet like yahoo.com or thestreet.com

[URL="http://about.stocks.com"]Stocks.com[/URL]
[URL="http://www.investopedia.com"]Welcome to Investopedia.com - Your Source for Investing Education[/URL]
are a few plus get books like dummy's guide to stocks and buy books from ken fisher.... like super stocks or three questions that count they are good books. =)
if you want a little in depth get security analysis. plus of course some economics books not the full text get the light ones for a start.
