Even less vol. now, bummer I just discovered this over the weekend and like its diversity but my bid is like the daily volume now...yikes.
My impression of a typical press release day for Tim Young involves watching about 7 1/2 hours of television, Googling the word "hydrogen" and re-posting the first news article that he clicks to Marketwired. Thanks Tim, how about discussing HYSR's projected path to securing contracts with California for hydrogen distribution to this "highway"? What happened to capturing the co-produced oxygen with organic waste, if it was so necessary who/where is the first WWTP that you plan to co-generate with?
I know, bit of a shock, guess that's what Seeking Alpha can do to smaller REITs. I *just* sold some $15 Mar 2015 calls yesterday for $0.20 thinking I caught the top...now they're $0.20 in the money!
I was excited about HIFR, unique concept, seems like a great alternative to utility ETFs. Sadly the IPO frenzy pumped this up too high. Sub-4% yield makes it just part of the crowd. At their projected dividend growth rate it'll take years for HIFR to yield over 4%.
Switch platforms. OptionsHouse handles VNR's DRIP no problem. Unless E-trade pays you some kind of magical members-only dividend all it takes is a few mouse clicks and an e-mail or two to switch. Were you trying place limit orders on the DRIPs themselves? Typically DRIPs occur at the close price.
You wont find it. HYSR's been touting the R&D horn for years with nothing to show. I bought it earlier in the year when they broke 1 volt but sold after I read everything they've ever published. This latest announcement is great...if you believe it. Even if/when HYSR could produce a working prototype, which is TOTAL speculation, they have published nothing in regards to how to implement it. No buyers, no suppliers, no manufacturers. GE's going to patent cold fusion in 3 years, HYSR won't even have a lease on a warehouse by then.
Do keep in mind without owning the stock you're giving up the dividend, by April that's $1.26 you'll have missed out on. At $0.80 on Apr $27.50 calls your breakeven becomes $29.56. Conversely with 80 cents saved and a buck twenty-six gained your break even for buying VNR today is $24.98.
HYSR hemorrhaged almost $11M in their latest annual report with NOTHING to show. Not a PowerPoint, not a whitepaper, just one or two press releases explaining how Hydrogen is a good alternative. No duh. I had a few shares just for fun but forget it; if they're not serious about actually doing anything there's plenty of other green start ups that are.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
All states have a minimum filing requirement for both residents and non-residents. Most states are around $500 for non-residents, but each year you should check with each state on their website to make sure. If you own enough VNR to break that minimum you most definitely will need to file multiple state returns, if not, get your broker to set you up with a DRIP, there's no such thing as too much VNR.
