    8 Years Gain vs Loss...

    Since 2003 FFC price is down 35%, but paid about 56% in dividends, so 19% ahead
    Past 5 years price is down 20%, but paid about 35% dividends, so 15% ahead.
    Past 2 years, price up 30%, plus +14% dividends
    Past 1 year, price down 15%, and +7% dividends
    Past 6 months, price down 7%, and + 5% dividends
    Past 3 months, price down 10% and + 2 1/2% dividend
    Past 5 days, price down 6% and dividends nil

    If you are a trader, you will probably lose on FFC. LT investors who are patient and buy low, likely do very well.

      As the saying goes "Wall Street's the only store in the world where people get upset when prices are cheaper"!.

      Of course (& I'll be 1st to admit) it's alot tougher to buy low when there's panic.

      Good Luck,
