Ben Stein is a schmuck. He is a one trick pony and it is this stock. I bought this stock at the high because of Ben Stein. Today after adding and adding and adding I am finally 105 bucks ahead. This is the only stock he knows.
He mentioned RQI again on the last Cavuto. He also said that he's not much of a stock picker. I guess 2008-2009 got to him and he had a revelation; quite a few others did as well. I remember more than one guru pounding the table before the meltdown who was silent for months after (not particularly this stock, but others). I did get the chance to buy some of this at the $2-$3 range during that time. It's all context and time I suppose, isn't it?
First I heard of this stock was in one of Ben's columns when it was around 6 and I bought into it about 2 years ago. Not a lot (a few thousand dollars worth), but with the DRIP it has just about doubled in those 2 years. It's in a ROTH IRA so no tax worries on the dividend tax either. No complaints here.
