I've been a long term holder of SCCO and did well including the surprise dividend end of 2012. Sold positions around 40 and rolled part into FCX with limit orders to buy on dips. Any thoughts. FCX has lower P/E and got beat up after news of M&A activity.
Of course, past performance is not neccessarily indicaive of future performance but SCCO has been a better performing stock. I am a former FCX stockholder who had been disappointed with performance. I switched to SCCO and have done quite well particularly with the dividends. Best of luck.
