Yahoo lists this in their "historical prices" but I do not see anything in the headlines or any divy pymt in my brokerage history. Can anyone else confirm whether they received this dividend? The fact that there are no headlines going back to '06 in the Yahoo profile for PVD doesn't help.
Got my divy finally. Despite some recent minor declines, PVD has done very well these past few months. I wish there was a way to track the progress of this stock more easily, though. Just out of curiosity, what sources do Americans who read this post use to track the Chilean market? Any barometric indicators you can recommend I consult to chart PVD's progress?
When you see the info. in that report though, you have to remember that each ADR share is equal to 15 Chilean shares. and the recent value of the Peso. You can find the exchange rate of the Dollar:Peson here, http://finance.yahoo.com/currency?u
Given how well the Chilean economy is doing, the falling value of the dollar, and low U.S. bond yields, this stock probably should be 40 given how safe its yield is. It just is a little hard to follow for U.S. investors and I have found that it does not show up on many stock screeners. Fortunately, I found PVD on adr.com and plan to hold my shares for a long, long time. PVD is the kind of stock that lets you sleep at night.
Whats is interesting is its compeitors, even its faster growing competitor, Cuprum, is not going up like provida is. Does anyone know why this is because I cannot find any other information. There was also extremely high volume today, which was the payable day per etrade (however it says 5/27 per the bolsa exchange internet site). My guess its open market purchases resulting from the dividends used to fund the DRIPs. I cannot find any other news that would explain this isolated increase. Any thoughts?
Thanks jjnsc. The fact that PVD's website isn't in English makes it hard to get these details. I find it odd that there was no press release announcing this divy, though perhaps there was just none released in America.
