I hope you can help me, cant find any info in Google
Thanx Paul in Maryland

ANSWER: Paul, from the information I have available:

Lawrence has no value. The Company was dissolved in the mid-1990's.

Goldrich was cease-traded in 1989. That cease-trade order remains in effect.

Celebrity had a 1 for 4 reverse split and became Polar Bear Development, which was struck and dissolved in the late 1990's.

QUESTION: Steven Can i ask you please about 2 more stocks that I bought years ago:
GREAT AMERICAN COAL,INC old transfer agent was Marquette National Bank
of Minneapolis  Cusip 389831-10-8  certificate dated 02/10/1982 number
on cert 1491
DIVERSIFIED TECH  purchased 04/11/1984.  I DO NOT have certificate
but I have a receipt from Canada Trust, Stock transfer Dept 1055 Dunsmuir St, P.O.Box 49390,Vancouver BC V7X1P3 that name was changed to
DISCRETE TIME SYSTEMS in Apr 1988
Do you have any info on the above two stocks
Sincerely,
Paul

Answer
Paul, I have no information on Great American Coal, but since it has a US transfer agent, it does not seem to be a Canadian Company. I only have information on Canadian companies, so I suggest you contact a broker to help you track that one down.

Diversified did become Discrete Time, which later had a 1 for 25 reverse split and became ADI Technologies. ADI ran into serious financial difficulty and was suspended, delisted and cease traded before folding. No current value.
