    New All Time High after adjusting for $10 Dividend

    You make a good point. I had not seen the data for 1998 and 1999. Yes, in 1999 it traded as high as 610 Canadian. I don't have the exact date but I think it was around 2/1/99.

    On that date the exchange rate was 1.5085, which would give a US equivalent of $397.74.

    In 1998 it had a high of 603 Canadian. Again I don't have the exact date for that trade but I think it may have been in April 1998 when the exchange rate was 1.4345 which would have yielded a US Equivalent price of $418.26.

    So I think you are right, most likely the all time high in US dollars is in the $418 range. However, the Company has clearly paid more than $30 in dividends since 1998, so I think it is still safe to say on a dividend adjusted basis, we are seeing new all time highs.
