## If you are new to RSO

The following is a list of dividend rates as a function of entry level.

\$5.00 = 20%
\$5.25 = 19%
\$5.50 = 18%
\$5.75 = 17%
\$6.00 = 17%
\$6.25 = 16%
\$6.50 = 15%
\$6.75 = 15%
\$7.00 = 14%
\$7.25 = 14%
\$7.50 = 13%

Perhaps more important in terms of "total yield" is the amount of probable price appreciation?

A return to the most recent high of \$7.55, would provide the following levels of Price Appreciation one would gain by buying at different levels:

\$5.00 = 51%
\$5.25 = 44%
\$5.50 = 37%
\$5.75 = 31%
\$6.00 = 26%
\$6.25 = 21%
\$6.50 = 16%
\$6.75 = 12%
\$7.00 = 08%
\$7.25 = 04%
\$7.50 = 01%

So, a buy at say \$6.25 (give or take a few cents) would equal 21% price appreciation with a 16% dividend rate.

When the price hits \$10 (give or take), a buy at \$6.25 equals 60% in price appreciation added to a 16% dividend rate.

Add to that the prospect of the dividend increasing and be happy you were long and not chasing dividends from stock to stock.

Where can one invest their money in this market for this type of return with this type of security?

Remember, RSO has NEVER failed to pay a "meaninful" cash dividend?
