Something I don't know about eTrade or my company?
Since I'm looking at a substantial plumbing bill, I went out to my eTrade account and checked my stock options. Hmm, I currently have about $700 worth that are actually worth something, currently. So I decided to sell them. Huh, what? Your company has blocked trading? Hokay, let's go to the stock purchase plan. I have shares there that should be sellable. Huh? Same message? Either it's a glitch, or there is something in the works that I don't know about. Are we buying another company or something?
