I got the dividend today! This after two TDA guys told he I had not qualified. Being in their "placeholder" status from my MNHVF must have saved me. Its only fair because I never sold any shares in Marine Harvest no matter what call sign they were using at different times and places.
TDAmeritrade still has not posted my dividend yet, but it always takes a few days.
Good for you. I snapped up a few more @ $12.76.
I got shafted. I converted two days after the ex date and my holdings of MNHVF did not qualify. So no dividend for me. If I had converted before 24 Feb. I would have received it. Damn!
As of this PM I have my shares assigned. Now I am waiting for TDA to calculate my cost basis. Will be interesting to see how they post my dividends.
As of this AM TDAmeritrade still listed my holding by their placeholder number. I hope they get moving on my conversion to MHG, as I might want to do a little trading about now.
Still can't get the administrative burden off my mind as it might increase with the ACA. Our medical device industry is getting crucified because of the additional 2.7% tax eating into their small (average 6%) margin. Will our hospitals be next to get so tapped and risk more closures?
No, but the people at Royce could as they own 10% of the company. All owners would be quite perturbed if the Board decides to sell out at $3-4 per share.
Long here too and anxious to buy more and today may be the day. I hope my concerns about hospital closings are unwarranted as you suggest.
AMEN2. This is a great time to borrow. A dip below $13 would be a blessing.
OK Dodd, but in January Becker's Hospital News listed 18 closures for 2013. Mostly in southern states, but four in the L.A. area closed due to legal problems and lawsuits.
46 participating in Medicare closed between 2009 and 2011
Houle and Fleece claim a third of our existing hospitals will be gone in six years.
Search "hospital closings" for more.
Mine is in the process of converting to MHG at TDA. Its back listed to a "placeholder" number and when I see it listed as MHG I can again trade. No charge for the conversion. I would like to know what happened to the dividend....did the MNHVD and MNHVF owners get it?
