What is the gauranty that this new income stream will be passed to LNCO? Anyway, I hope you are right, I just added some to my holding. May add more on further weakness.
Re-investing Divis commission free is not new, all brokers will do it. Some make the accounting easy, some not so much. In fact, some companies have arrangements with a limited number of brokers that even give you a DISCOUNT on the PPS of a point or two when re-investing - that is a true Drip Program. I haven't seen that anybody is offering that for LNCO.
Now, the twist you mention; "Dividends will be put in a pool... and you can invest them in any stock you want FREE" - that is news. How long can you hold funds in that pool and do they still garner interest as cash? I can see rolling up 10's of thousands in such a pool and using it to take up whole new positions, not re-invest them at all, and save commissions. Nice, because you could build a new position in small, incremental lots without inflating your cost basis with fees.
Are you sure that's the deal?
The way I understand LINE's purchase of Berry Petrolium is that Berry stock holders will be paid in LNCO shates. If this is correct where is this LNCO stock comming from? Is it a new issue and thus dilutive? That would explain the extended drop in PPS. LINCO has been hit much harder than LINE. Maybe I misunderstand the whole thing.
I myself am an innocent victim of this injustice. While MFA is still my largest holding I sold 6K shares in the past 2 qtrs on fear of falling distributions. Had they not made the error distributions, and the pps for that matter, would have been greater. As I see it, 6000 shares at $.30 per share (the amount over the normal $.20) means current stock holders owe me $1,800. So, if you guys on this board will just chip in a little bit each we can settle up right now. In fact I'll settle for $1,500 - how's that for a $300 discount up front! Of course there is the emotional trauma that I have suffered, but that's a separate case that we can deal with later.
I WANT EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE COMMING AND I WANT IT NOW! Wha, Wha, Wha!
I don't know exactly where I will put all the cash that you will be sending me just yet. Anybody have any suggestions as to what I can do with it?
I'm too ;lazy to listen in. Must not be going too bad - slight recovery since 10AM. I wonder what they are going to say about liability issues - probably nothing unless somebody asks.
Story under "News" tells of a special $.50 divi this qtr. if I am readinig it right. Sounds good. Is this in addition to the normal divi? I am thinking not. But it still sounds good. Early 1.5% bump on very high volume has vanished. What gives?
BBC is reporting horsemeat DNA has been found in Taco Bell products in UK. Lots of European stories about horsemeat found in popular products all over the place. This is the first American company that I have seen implicated. It's up on Drudge so it will be in the media here soon. Let's hope the problem is contained to overseas operations. Could be a real downer on YUM. How important is Taco Bell to YUM? I do not know, but I would think plenty. Wierd story....
I would settle for 13. Remember when you calculate the value of dividends reivested you need to subtract the taxes we pay on them each year. This is slightly offset by the effect of compounding. It's too complicated anf I hold too few shares to bother calculating the exact figure but I think maybe your figure of 14 may be a bit high.
Good luck to us!
Yes, I agree, with reinvested dividends it has been a good long term performer. However, I have been concerned of late because:
A. It has under performed Aussi market. Compare IAF chart with EWA.
B. Return of equity in last qrt distribution. Was it a tax ploy or were they unable to meet expectations so the had to do it?
C. It no longer comands the premium over NAV (XIAFX) that it has in the past.
Last few weeks have been encouraging. I am thinking this run might be a time to sell after holding for so many years and find something with a little more momentum to catch the last of this general market rally.
On the other hand, it may just be undervalued right now. This is not uncommon with such thinnly traded issues. Maybe the market will find IAF, see value and sustained run up may result.
What to do, what to do...? As the market climbs its wall of worry....
It's a good sign. SP & NAV(XRQIX) were getting too close together to maintain upward momentum. IMHO, RQI was a bit out over it's skis, as they say these days. I just wish the volume were lower on these recent sell-offs. A little more discount and I may add to my position.
