I know we have an elective option here for cash or stock on the "extra" dividend but the reply has to be in by Jan. 20 and I have yet to hear fro the NEW transfer agent, Boston Financial data Services, has anyone heard anything from them? In fact, today I received my usual month end dividend but not from BFDS but from Alpine directly. It looks like we might have an ineffective transfer agent here. I'm afraid this is going to get screwed up. I went on BFDS website and can't even find what other companies they act as transfer agent for never mind finding awp.
