Correct. You only have to own the stock at the end of trading on the day before ex-D to get the divy. You could sell it on ex-D and still get the divy .... of course, the price is adjusted down by the amount of the divy on ex-D.
Looks like two people: one bought 500 shares at $5.50 and another bought a series of nine transactions of 1,700 shares each for $5.50. That's it.
Are you planning to marry Davis? If not, why do you care? You sound pathetic. He owes you nothing.
Davis .... I like the content of many of your posts, but I wish you would stop encouraging these people. Your good posts are getting lost in the garbage.
Agree with that. Maybe shouting "Wolf" is a better analogy .... do it too much and it loses its impact. And, I think you're correct re Jonathan.
I own RAS also, and I know the disappointment people - including me - felt when the SPO was announced, but I don't see that the situations are all that similar .... just that surprises are possible, but that's not much of a reason to extrapolate that they will happen.
Right now, I am of the opinion that the RS is a good idea to get the price well over $5 which would attract new - and possible significant - investors as management said. I will be surprised if they do a quick SPO.
Sooooooooo .... don't be accused of yelling "Fire" in a theater.
Have they done that in the past? What would be the point of buying back - which I'm confident they are - then doing a SPO? What does that achieve other than providing fodder for message board posts?
About the movie:
The man in the robot suit was the doorman of Groumann's Chinese Theater in Hollywood. He was cast because he was 7' tall, and it was a non-speaking part anyway. Since he had to get into the robot suit, two suits were made: one with laces in the front for back shots, and one with laces in the back for front shots.
The star, Michael Rennie, was a British actor who joined the Royal Air Force during WWII. He came to Alabama for pilot training, but it was before his fame in The Day the Earth Stood Still. When his fellow pilots asked him what he did, he said "actor" and they all laughed. Then they went to a movie at a local theater only to find the star of the movie was Michael Rennie sitting next to them.
You do understand that the RS will have no effect on the shorts as all shares are adjusted just like they are for the longs. Now, whether or not they trade it anyway, I can't say.
The market maker left us a signal by buying at $3.65 AH. He's saying that the shorts will be buying at least that high ..... do not sell your shares any lower, if you're inclined to sell.
For sure, but I believe in this stock right now. I expect to stay with it; looking for a $6 handle by the end of next year.
Good point about the shorts who tend to attack REIT's in particular. Also, the $5 threshold also applies to many institutions that are not public funds [e.g. pension funds] that are begging for yield right now.
 The divy will hold.
 The RS will be positive for RSO as it will make the stock attractive to funds and institutions that couldn't buy it before. If they believe that RSO is headed up, then the yield could easily drop to 10%. A PPS of $6.00 to $6.50 is very doable [been there fairly recently] .... not RS adjusted obviously.
