    It has also created a major drop in stock price of BASFY and will decrease the $ value of your dividend in May 2015.

    New 52 week high

    Agreed. What a disappointment. Hints by Mgt after a good 3rd quarter indicated better. Kurt Bock appears to not be running as aggressive a company as his predecessor. His message to stockholders was a spin to tell them how good things are, But the stock gains over a year have not kept pace with Dow, Bayer or even DuPont. He touted the increase in dividend of .10 Euros/year as providing a good return of 3.48%, but that looks good only because BASF.DE and BASFY stock prices have underperformed against indexes and competitors.

    Should report blow out earnings in 2 weeks.

  • I read the press release and am concerned. ETC is selling 8Million APU units and APU gets none of the proceeds. This represents a 9% increase in outstanding APU units. This could dilute APU earnings tremendously and create a burden for future partnership distributions. With this brief announcement I see no
    benefit to keeping my LP interest. Any other thoughts????

    Risk

    The only risk I see to this issue (it's a trust preferred stock) is if B of A gets weary of the constant regulator attack on the former Countrywide problems and spins the whole mess into a separate entity that goes bankrupt. If they did that this issue would most likely no longer pay the dividend and become mostly worthless. I bought this stock in 2006 when it was issued and rode it down to single digits during the great recession and through the B of A acquisition. Note that B of A called all but one of their BAC trust preferred securities when they were no longer allowed use them as part of their capitalization due to new financial regulations B of A did not call the ones from CFC nor Merrill. They have never missed a CFC-PB payment although I think one was delayed during the crisis in a dispute with the bank handling the CFC dividends.
    Call price is $25 plus accrued dividends. If you hold it to maturity (these are like bonds) it;s also $25 pay back.
