I tried to buy this stock last week at an Edward Jones Brokerage office. They would not do it. It is a restricted stock for them. Does DNP hedge their stock portfolio in some way? Seemed silly to me. This appears to be one of the safest stocks out there with a nice monthly dividend. The broker seemed to think it had to do with the new FinReg regulations He was surprised because he had 4 clients of his who already had this stock in their holdings through Jones.
