From my understanding, exchange-listed companies are all DTC-eligible (DTC meaning Depository Trust Company), so my question is more about the companies that trade over-the-counter.

How can I check whether or not the stock of a particular company is DTC-eligible? I know that I could ask the investor relations department of the company, as companies are usually proud of their stock's DTC-eligibility. But is there a central organization where DTC-eligibility is recorded? Is there a better way I can check whether or not a stock is DTC-eligible?

  • Could you please define "DTC"? – Chris W. Rea Jul 25 at 13:08
  • @ChrisW.Rea DTC is the Depository Trust Company. – Flux Jul 25 at 13:46
  • Ah, good to know. (Here in Canada, DTC most often implies "Dividend Tax Credit" when talking about stocks; i.e. a tax-advantaged form of distribution income.) – Chris W. Rea Jul 25 at 14:12
