Is'nt APU best considered a long term hold vs month to month swings, especially considering the +7.x %
Sell right before the dividend, based on an earnings report that is largely weather related?
Not me. I hope to be in APU for the long term.
It's only down approx a third of a percent as of 10:15 am today, after being down only one percent earlier.
Estimates earnings of $1.39...........actual earnings...a loss of $0.49.....This stock will nosedive tomorrow, ..back to the low 40s. I recommend you sell before the market opens to keep your loss under $5.
reviewed the Q4 degree-days data on the company website. The sales are going to be somewhat less than typical as dispute a cold Nov, the Dec warmth brought overall sales potential from cold weather to about 10% less than last year, and also somewhat less than historical norm. So, volume sold should be on the slim side for Q4. On the plus side, i think wholesale C3 prices have fallen more than retail.
