    Why the drop (IMO)?

    Hmmm. Maybe you did not understand that my post was addressing the drop in PRICE not "serious consequences to company." That price has dropped about $7- about 30%- from over $23 to $16.60, which some investors might think is "serious."

    May be you also did not understand the date of my post was last Friday, 9/12. I did not see anybody else talking about the vote in Scotland at the time. If I missed THAT POSTER you have not named, my apologies to all.

    1- The insider sale.
    2- Oil stocks hit especially drillers.
    3- What nobody else is talking about: The Scottish vote next Thursday for independence from UK. This has tanked UK stocks. Drilling stocks- especially in Scottish waters- mostly likely hit more. Why? Uncertainty. With Scottish independence there are concerns on where their new gov't. gets funding. One possibility is to increase taxes on oil extraction and the equipment of drilling companies. It is very possible that (1) insider sales NOW was driven by the potential price drop due to Scottish independence vote.

    In the long run, this turns around. When dust settles and great dividend yield is calculated, AWLCF will rise again.

    The case for buying KMR over KMI

    There was no logical reason for KMR to be over $100 in my opinion. The run up was mostly traders in and out. So, yes fallen from peak but that peak was illogical. I did not expect it to hold. KMR was 77 the Friday before the announcement. At 94 now, that is not a drop.

    Right now (9/9) KMR is 94.02 and KMI is about 38.50.
    94.02 (KMR) divided by 2.4849 =37.83.
    If (a big "if") KMI does not fall below 38.50, you only make 67 cents by buying KMR at 94.02 today.If I was planning on holding KMI, I would not buy KMR now as KMI may fall further- below 37.83 before closing.
    I have said that as we get closer to closing, KMR will fall closer to deal value of 89.75- maybe not all the way, but like to 91, which would make KMI value at 36.62. But what if KMI is 36 at closing. You are better off buying KMI at market price.
    The risk of arbitrage by buying KMR is nobody knows where KMI will be at closing.

    Although unlikely vote could fail, what if you buy KMR at 94 today; vote fails; deal is off; and KMR falls back to 77? You just lost 17 per share.

    He must be "Conan the destroyer."
    I planned to average down at 15.
    Maybe I will wait for 5.

    Only held small position due to risk. They cut dividend 65% from quarterly .0425 to .015. I had a 11.2% gain. But when the news circulates re. divvy cut considering terrorism attacks that gov't. too incompetent to handle and theft losses (up to 30%)- no longer worth holding. Risk worth it for small position at 14+% divvy, but not for new 4.5% divvy. Maybe this cut is just temporary this quarter, but I saw no explanation for cut.

    My net dividend was 1.122 per share.
    They deducted .028 for currency conversion. Last dividend they deducted .0262.
    Although the currency conversion fee increased, the dividend was increased by more.
    I am not complaining but I do dislike the fact that we are double charged for conversion fees:
    from US$ reporting to Norwegian per stock exchange requirements and than from Norwegian back to US$ for payment. It is for sure that in addition to the actual currency conversion calculation that the banks are also double charging us to do the math.

  • I do not understand why Adams did this deal. I know he is adverse to paying taxes, but this is too much.
    PR also says transaction to close in Q4 will be taxable to AUXL shareholders.
