above is my post from when i sold back in jan 09. i particularly like:
"i sold for a few reasons but the final straw was the premium to NAV. the market may take a hit soon and that premium could turn to a discount again. so why not take the premium now."
i'm not short, i'm not disgruntled. i'm in the "i told you so" mode. and guess what, since AOD is still at a premium and the market may take a dive from here, there is still a chance to sell at a premium.
just thought i'd bring this up for the current board readers. i've been here a long time and know what i'm doing. i'm not a basher. and i don't have multiple aliases.
you'll see i note that i sold before the first dividend cut. i warned people about that one. then i warned people about the next one. the most recent post is may 24. div cut just a couple months later.
