    5 and a half times average 3 month volume

    It's getting there! If you already own AWLCF, then you're fine. You can't expect everyone else to be as smart as you are! It's a waiting game, however that fat dividend, makes the waiting easy.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

      stdvooh: I'm sorry if I drowned your optimism with a dose of humility. I'm humble enough to acknowledge my shortcomings and admit that I am prone to making mistakes just as anyone else. My post was simply intended to point out the dichotomy between the apparent conviction and harmony we see when discussing Awilco (this thing is a table pounding buy!) and price action/movement (3 million dollars worth of shares being sold in Oslo).

      Said differently, I wanted to focus our discussion on why someone, somewhere thinks it's a good idea to sell it at such a price.

      • pro - this std guy dishes good stuff. If you are long just enjoy the ride. No Chicken Littles allowed !

      • Who is selling, is the same as who has been selling. Several Scandinavian funds, who bought in early, started selling when the price went over $26. USD per share some weeks ago. At that point they nearly doubled their money invested in Awilco, plus a couple of good dividends, so sell some and cover their original investment, and the rest of the shares are free and clear. Only 3 of the top ten institutional investors have been selling. Funds need to make their numbers by year end, or face losing investors, so selling a good stock, to show annual investment profits, isn't out of line for a fund. Funds have different goals than private investors. Others may be selling for many other reasons, including the need for money Right NOW! You need to decide what is good for you, in your personal circumstances, rather than trying to figure out what others in different circumstances are doing.

      • prop - I am humble also. I "stumbled" upon this stock doing my screen scanner thing and got lucky with 500 shares at 20.8 recently. Still am skeptical about that a company with this type of yield that appears doable is undiscovered. Who said inefficiency in stock markets was dead ? I am 61 years old and a seasoned investor. I have NEVER seen such an opprtunity.

      I do worry though - about unknown unknowns. Everyone's sure this thing is worth a lot more than ~$22/share yet you have shares being sold in droves that quenches all the thirst of the retail buyer at this price - what gives?

    • But is still ends on a downward inflection ....
      and up only 2.7% on the day.
      I mean, hey ... raise the dividend by 10%; add to risk reduction with operating program, and this is all we get?.....
      whats a girl gotta do to get attention?

      • You are smart enough to see the value here. Most "investors" are still looking at this,(if they have noticed at all), and saying, "duh, that don't make no sense, must be somethin' wrong here." When one of the big time "geniuses" calls it, then it's rocket time. In the meantime, fat dvyies and a currency arbitrage situation with the Norway krone vs the US dollar, that protects against the obvious US inflation.
