    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.

    Thank you all for your responses. It would have been helpful if Scottrade notified its customers of their delay. Just wondering why Scottrade is not suporting its customers.

    Thanks again.

    Are there other people who have not received their Frontier shares from Scottrade?

    In the New York Times Business section(Sunday), there is an article that the dividend may be in jeopardy in 2011. May be worth reading.

    Taken from the Pepco Holdings Inc. Q1 2009 Earnings Call Transcript


    Just take us in light of where your earnings may be this year and depending on prices obviously where it may be next year, seems that your payout ratio is rising so I'm sure you anticipate this question, but could you just talk about the safety of the dividend and what you're thinking.

    Joseph Rigby

    Our thinking hasn't changed since the analyst conference. We are committed to maintaining dividends so I can't be any more clear than that.

    Andrew Levy – Incremental Capital

    Thank you. Well, actually you know what, when you say committed, at what point do you have to start looking at it as far as whether it's sustainable or not, what are some of the criteria that we need to kind of focus on?

    Joseph Rigby

    Well, let me – okay well, committed means committed in my mind, but it's important to note that we see this as a really important component of our value proposition. And as we think over the longer haul we think it's very reasonable that we're going to have constructive outcomes, and that the outcome on our rate, the impact on our ratio when the utility earnings is going to give us the confidence that we have to be able to maintain the dividend.

    Andrew Levy – Incremental Capital

    So it sounds like to me, assuming you get fair treatment in your states you should be able to maintain the dividend?

    Joseph Rigby

    That's always been our perspective.

    Andrew Levy – Incremental Capital

    And obviously power prices going up and all that stuff.
