My understanding is that you must hold the stock at the end of the day on Feb 25 (actually the 23, Fri). The SEC has a three day rule so that if you bought it on Feb 26, you get no dividend or royalty as it's called.
Only took a few days for TRU to come in. Call it true to pattern. As I said before, the drift lower will probably last at least a few weeks. I disagree with your pronouncement of a $5.00 floor on NG, so I'm confused to what you agee with related to any of my previous statements.
I'm glad this topic generated some much needed discussion in the TRU message board.
TRU is fun right now because is totally opposite the Naasdaq right now. I pulled out of the NAZ a little while ago, tired of good companies getting bloodied.
I like TRU because it reminds me of another stock that I liked but didn't follow and now its up over 120% from where "I should have bought" instead of chasing the networking sector.
There is always another side to a coin but this one looks win/win. IMHO there has been undermet industrial NG demand with plant shutdowns or diversion because of strong demand and price. Slowdown may bring more balance but with new utility demand no resultant glut. Heck, LNG is even starting to look good! Agree $5.00 is a good floor for now but a hot summer and a cold next winter with marginal reserves could lead to another wild ride.
This is fun today compared to other sectors. Good Luck
