Oh my heavens, bite your tongue. I, too, hold both issues but I can't wait until the merger. Then it will be interesting to see with BTI does.
I just wish the merger would get completed. Does anyone have any guess when it will...if it will?
raise the dividend, or split the stock so more people will be more likely to buy. As much as I like JBHT, and have held it over twenty years, even I wouldn't buy it at this price. Further, we long-suffereing shareholders who held for years while in the red really deserve a better dividend than we are being given.
Well, here's one who wouldn't frown upon a 2:1 split. I, also, more than like your idea of an 8% dividend increase. Even I hadn't hoped THAT much!
Anyone know any reason for it? $1.77/share is a lot of money to lose in a day for "no reason". Admittedly the DJIA decreased a good bit, too, but is that all that caused CVTI's drop? Or is it that gasoline is expected to increase? I see JBHT dropped a great deal, too, today.
Thank you. I've held PPL since 1994, I believe, and as you can tell, I never even look at it. It just keeps going on, so I don't have to watch it. Think I'd best for awhile, at least.
Thank you. Unfortunately I assumed that the blank meant it was ROC as before and changed all the "dividend income" in Quicken to that. My 1099 from the broker shows it was all ROC. If it isn't, I presume I'll end up getting a new one from them.
I would think the only reason for the merger now is if JF wants, for some reason, FRNT (FLINZ in US) on the NYSE.
And, who knows, it might just be a better idea...but that's up to JF and his advisors.
