    OT - IC4X - re HTE

    While I recognize that I won't change your mind, I will just note that if you're keeping funds that you would be willing to invest in HTE at a slightly lower price in cash, you are losing .20-.25 a month after tax while you wait.

    Also, though not very attractive at the moment, HTE now has calls which can potentially add to income. As a hedge against fairly large energy holdings and to increase income further, I wrote SJT Oct 40 calls for 1.40 a few weeks ago which lately has been looking like the right thing to have done.

    • A recent post (couldn't identify which one) referred to NG CanRoys and those with an oil mix, and getting them at near bottom.

      Two heavily weighted in NG, which I (still) own and should have parted with months ago, include Paramount (PMT.un) and Advantage (AAV) provide us who bought months ago with a rich yield. But ... I am holding my breath on distribution maintenance. PMT appears to have decent hedging in place which is supposed to carry it through times of lower NG prices now in place, whereas AAV plays by different rules. I noticed that True Energy (TUI.un) in weighted in NG by 63%, with a very high yield. But all it takes is one big drop in distribution and an investor's rationale for buying for the yield is destroyed by a large (paper) loss in stock value.

    • Ah, the time value of money. If I can get HTE at 1.00 less than its current price, then that's 4 to 5 months worth of distributions plus I am making 3.75% in my Ameritrade account on the cash. Generally, you would be right if it took me 6 or more months to buy the stock, but typically it's a wait of 1 to 3 months.
