Thank you for that awesome reminder, deadcat. If it weren't for that busted deal, I'd never have gotten into this thing and made so much money! Unlike N, who rightly emphasizes it, the dividend is just sauce on the meatloaf. The biggest "ouch" would have to go out to the Huntsmans.
Found this old post... Now that HBWT has popped up again I'll play it one more time...Was 17 below last night here in the wilderness - no wonder my mind is wandering to a warmer place I remember fondly.... Ed
"HBWT – You bemoan how "boring" HUN is as an investment and even seem to complain about the MB. There is no "trading" for you [or not enough trading and oodles of lost opportunity] just buying on dips and holding, holding, holding.....It's too bad you feel that way. The HUN message board [to me] is reminiscent of summer days on the "Vineyard" where family and friends would gather on the porch around cocktail time, look out over the water, hear the sounds of the nearby harbor and delight in the late afternoon glow as the sun sets and discuss the day's diversions and evening plans. No TV. No radio. No traffic noise. No traffic. Lots of laughter and smiles all around.
Naomi passes bye on the way back from the beach wrapped in her favorite towel and says, "Hi!'. LindM is marveling how good and relaxing his juicy G & T is [while contemplating a second]. Karen serves hors d'oeuvres. I'm bringing out the glasses, opening a bottle of wine and getting it the right temperature. Daffy starts the discussion on some island topic that is debated no where else. We wonder if Dai.Dalos is flying in tonight? Bullwinkle just got back on the island and BKB never left. So where do we go out tonight? Chilmark? Beach Plum inn? Maybe not so far - Le Grenier in VH? Or just stay on the porch as the evening's peace is now upon us. Why not just hold our position? There's no better place to be. " Ed
