    Earnings tomorrow morning

    Dar,
    I first bought SUI, thanks to a tip from you on some other message board, in June 2011 for $38.10. After flipping shares a few times, dividends and capital appreciation I estimate that I was up about $45K. I sold all at $71 on 3/30 because I was frustrated with the failure to see meaningful increase in dividends. So thanks again for your generosity in giving out information, analyses and advice sprinkled with some occasional sarcasm and even what some might call grumpiness. I call it "not suffering fools gladly". See you on other boards, be well.

    sole,
    No doubt clever strategy but a bit too complicated and sophisticated for the likes of me. I finally raised my bid to $12.15 and just got another 3000 shares. I think the dividend is very secure and will rise nicely over time. GLL

    CRAZY DISTRIBUTION TIMING

    Didn't much matter. Pretty tepid response IMHO to the divvie announcement. This stock is rather thinly traded and not on many folk's radar. As long as the divvie continues I could care less. GLL

    who,
    Well if today's action can hold on we might close at $12 or more for the first time this year, which would put us well on the way to fulfilling your prediction. GLL

    TREVOSE, Pa., April 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StoneMor Partners L.P. (STON) (“StoneMor” or the “Partnership”) today announced a quarterly cash distribution of $0.66 per common unit for the 1st quarter 2016. The distribution represents a 3.1% increase over the prior year 1st quarter. The distribution is payable on May 13, 2016 to common unit holders of record as of the close of business on May 6, 2016.

    It appears the "unsustainable" is sustained yet again. I agree that a 10% yield is unsustainable but it only has to be sustained for another 10 years and I'll sell. GLL

    I agree. Long time before we see $20 if ever. $13 or $14 or maybe even $15 if the divvie can be maintained for a few quarters and some decent earnings. If if if! GLL

    Perhaps so. Clearly some sentiment that the dividend will be maintained as indicated by nice pop so far this AM despite a very negative general market. I expect an announcement today or tomorrow of $.66 div. GLL

    Medium risk, excellent dividend ( 10% yield). One could do worse. A more conservative but IMHO safer REIT is APTS. I have a bid for 3000 shares at $12.00 pending so you know I put my money where my mouth is. Worth looking at. Of course you need to do your own DD.

    gtw,
    Yeah I did that a while ago and came pretty close the other day when it went down to like 12.13. I'm patient and might raise my bid if 12 looks hopeless. I've been out of town and not following closely but I'm patient and will raise my bid at some point as this is a long term investment and it is sort of foolish to sweat 20 or 30 cents / share plus or minus. It looked like we might get pretty low again at one point today but now it has rebounded. GLL

    Nice rebound in NAV lately. New high for the year today. Next step is increase in divvie. Hopefully.

    All depends on the dividend and the dividend coverage ratio. Stable dividend with say .8 ratio and I would guess $14-$15. Increased dividend and a similar coverage ratio and $20 starts to look reasonable indeed. Dividend cut and I am out of here and have no idea how low the price goes. My bet is on the first scenario.

    Fnally RSO goes over the 200 Moving Average

    Dividend over past year or 2 down from $.80 to $,64 to $ .42. Reverse split and lots of promises. Hard to see where your optimism comes from. Of course the past is no guarantee of future good or bad performance but it is not an enviable track record to say the least. Not to be a gloom monger but I'd hate less experienced hands reading these comments to think all is positive. BTW I have about 3200 shares, I do not short stocks and am holding so obviously I desperately want this company to do well. GLL

    Nice to see your optimism kirby, wish I could share it. Last few days we've had a nice pop but not big volume. I will remain skeptical until we have at least 2 and preferably 4 consecutive quarters with no cut in the dividend. I've been disappointed time and time again by these false starts and then BAM, lousy earnings and then a dividend cut. Still holding but just the shares and not my breath. GLL

    Cyrus,
    You have no concern about the possibility of bankruptcy? Are you just in it for the relatively short term trade or do you think the company will be solvent a yer from now and even eventually resume paying dividends. Serious question not trolling. I have about 12K shares that I have been assuming are essentially worthless and have written them off already but it would be nice if they recover at least some modicum of value one day.

    8 months or so since we've closed above $23. Today looks like we might do so at long last. That shows a very positive trend IMHO. GLL

    Are you alluding to this and if so what do you know about Imation and the Clinton group?

    "Arlington Asset Investment receives notice from Imation (IMN) and the Clinton Group of their intent to nominate a controlling slate of six candidates to stand for election to the Board (AI) : The co announced that it has received a notice from Imation (IMN), acting in concert with a fund affiliated with Clinton Group, of its intent to nominate a controlling slate of six candidates to stand for election to the Company's eight-member Board of Directors at the 2016 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. The Imation Group has represented to the Company that it collectively owned less than 0.1% of Arlington's outstanding common shares at the time that it submitted its notice (10,000 shares of Class A common stock owned by Imation and 1,000 shares of Class A common stock owned by the Clinton Group), all of which have been acquired since the beginning of March 2016."
