    Hi Board,
    Are there any thoughts of buying USO rather than OIL if one purchase the shares for the long term? Will one get the same results?
    Thank you

    reverse splits:

    5/14/98: 1-7 reverse split

    10/16/06: 2-5 reverse split

    1/7/10: 1-8 reverse split

    Last traded on March 10, 2015 at 31 cents. 31 cents is a 52 week low. Another reverse coming?

    Are there any thoughts of purchasing SLVO rather than SLV? I understand that SLVO has a monthly dividend, but are there more downsides in buying SLVO? Are these two units comparative when it comes to the rise or drop in the price of silver? Interestingly, my brokerage company will not allow me to purchase SLVO in my IRA.
    My thanks.

    Drussial,
    Guess again. You needed to purchase the shares on January 10 to receive the dividend.

    I believe scottrade would charge an administration charge. In my experience with Scottrade, the company holds back on paying dividends on the due date, and they delayed paying me (and other shareholders) on a takeover. Needless to say, I left Scottrade. If you have two or more brokerage accounts, one can see the obvious delays that Scottrade employs.

    If your account is Scottrade, then you will have to wait. They do NOT pay when NYCB states it should be paid. They wait. They also hold $ when there is a takeover.
    Best wishes!

    KOG Good Target for Hess

    Hess purchased Bakken assets when they took over American Oil and Gas (for stock) many months ago. If there is a take over, probably not Hess.

    If one listens to the conference call, the dividend will be paid at the continuing rate of .25 cents per share.
