I guess you do not follow this stock at all. They have consistantly paid the .12 div. As a company I appreciate the fact at year end they looked at things and said...hey you know what ..we did well this year. not a lot of claims etc lets reward our investors with an extra .08 a share!! that is a GOOD thing...not to be confused with being unstable and a Bad thing!! if they came in once a yaer or so and said ahh we are going to lower are div then raise etc...that would be a bad thing....i think you live in Bizzaro world...seinfeld would be proud of your style!
We're all just betting on the wind here.I'm happy with the dividend.I have UVE in the reinvestment plan.As long as the PPS stays down I'll be getting more shares. I'm happy for now. We are only 6 days into the 4th month ,getting our 1st dividend that is.We can make those 6 days up before the end of the year. Just don't place to big of a bet on any one stock. Best of luck to you.
The dividend is payable on April 6, 2010 to shareholders of record as of March 19, 2010.
April is the 4th month of the year.I think we will get our dividends for the rest of the year.
But you're right we can't count on anything.That's why we diversify our stock holdings .Don't put all your money in any one stock or sector.Just say you had $35,000 to invest.Then you could buy $5,000 worth of 7 different stocks, in 7 different sectors.
EPD, oil /gas ARLP, coal NRGY, utility T, telephone BMY, health care KFT, consumer goods UVE, Insurance /financial
