The price behavior reminds me of several MLP's that I have lost money on (i.e EVEP, ETP and PAA), which went counter to the norm. You would think the price would rise and dump after ex div. However, I would not be suprised if this was traded to stay stagnent until after ex div, then quickly recover after the div and rise to 32 or 33 before Jan ex op. I am still buying Jan calls with the hope that history repeats it self before ex div or ride this thing off the fiscal cliff and hope my parachute opens before Jan ex op.
I need 31.54 to be even on average for the 3 main buys I made this quarter.
I like 33.33 just for its odd evenness.
I might sell my shares except for the ones I payed more, keeping about 1/3 for the div. and possibly a quick recovery.
My two lower buys average 30.68
2.65 a share gain would be nice enough for me.
