    What happened to $27.25?????????

    I think that it has to be voted on by shareholders and approved by the regulators. Since part of this has been rescheduled to later dates, the total return will be less or negative if it is not approved. I do not know if shareholders approved it. Exelon shareholders may vote against it as it is a bad deal for them. Pepco Holders may get greedy and turn it down. It could be up for a vote so that could be a time for taking profits at near or above the $27.25 price. Selling at near $27.25 appears to have been a good move if this is going to take a long time or the stock could go back below $20. Teco yields near 5% and Hawaiian Industries also does. These might be better picks than staying in Pepco.

  • I keep getting a message do you want to leave this page after I try to get some stock quotes. This started after they got the new CEO and she may not want to give this service away without making it annoying. So I can see why the ad $ go elsewhere as traders use their brokerage websites more and yahoo less. I liked Yahoo for the Message boards but it is getting less worthwhile now. I hope someone at Yahoo sees this and they fix the problem and buy another server or whatever they need. It may come cheap compared to firing some of the help executives and paying them hundreds of millions of dollars.

    Usually the company has a limited number of shares available to be issued. When the reach the limited number of shares a vote of the shareholders would be required to increase the number of shares the company can issue.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Does anyone know if the court is now in session and a trial has begun regarding the Railroad Lease. It seems that something must have happen to drive prices up temporarily to $9.55. We could seem the teens without a court room victory if speculators bid up the price. At the current price the Railroad could make an offer to buyout the company on the cheap to save court costs. Instead, it is possible that there is insider trading going on by Railroad Lawyers friends and relations. I would hold and hope for another price jump as this plays on in the trail system.

    Check the Schedule for this years work. I think this is premature. I am hoping for news in July or August as to the start of some income. Now that McMoran is no longer a company, the focus is not on DJ2 or only the gulf. So, news may be less timely. Some give back in the run up of the Unit Price is expected. With so much money invested lets hope the technology works. I believe that the gas is there, but that the technology to get it out needs to be developed and proven. We may have to wait for results as tools jam and perforating guns misfire.

    AT Value in a Sale or Merger

    $12 is way more than book value. Book Value has been declining as they are eating into it to pay dividends. I think $6 to $8 is more likely as it might leave some upside for the buyer. This is more than book value which is probably near $5 to $7 now. But a working plant might be worth more than a to be built plant.
