    Alternative Approach to Making Money with ETP

    I have traded this stock for about a year. I buy on dips into the ex-date and trade out on runs into the ex-date; making $1 to $2.00 per trade and holding only a day to a week thus far. Made 3.8% last quarter in the month leading up to the ex-date on 6 trades and 3.1% this quarter on 4 trades. I haven't been holding because the stock always seems to drop a lot more than the distribution post the ex-date (as it has done again this time).

    Nonetheless, this quarter I did make a purchase that I held because it does seem the stock is undervalued relative to its opportunities, but their execution does seem to be suspect. Looking forward to the call.
