    Law suits

    Just the usual sharks circling the boat. A lot of chum in the water.
    RK can ante up a little more if they pose any threat.
    I'm sure it was anticipated. KMI will power forward.

    Sentiment: Buy

    along with senior notes to pay for Pepco deal.
    Glad I bailed at 36.50. The run-up was too good to continue much more.
    If the POM holders are smart they got out with the $7 premium, since the take over will lower their dividend about 2%.

    Annualized dividend $5.52 divided by today's price $77.68 = .071 or 7.1%

    The reason why LNCO-Line spread is increasing

    The spread is irrelevant.
    LINE - 30.95 - yield 9.3%
    LNCO - 29.66 - yield 9.6%
    Their tax structure is different. Returns over time will be very close to each other.
    Real question is: Which one are the insiders buying?

    Rights offering

    uhadmeatdividend uhadmeatdividend Jun 11, 2014 9:10 AM Flag

    Agree, excellent get. I'm a bit confused though, how a fund that espouses Health and Wellness owns a sausage/meat/cake company. I'll quietly take the 'dough' however.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • uhadmeatdividend by uhadmeatdividend Jul 26, 2014 10:41 AM Flag

    Ouch! Almost 6X volume, apparently the Rights Offering & oversubscription shares were added causing dilution to the price per share. Looking for a rebound in coming weeks.

  • uhadmeatdividend uhadmeatdividend Jul 16, 2014 4:20 AM Flag

    Ex-Dividend means the stock trades Ex (without) the dividend on that day.
    The share price on Ex-Div day will be reduced by the amount of the dividend as that $ is put into an account to be paid out on the Pay Date.

    Secondary offering just announced

    by uhadmeatdividend Jun 10, 2014 4:43 PM
    uhadmeatdividend uhadmeatdividend Jun 12, 2014 8:45 AM Flag

    Depends on how much they price the Secondary Offering. The Market price will end up close to that.
    With 3 full months to next div, price could dwindle for weeks. That may be a buy point. If I were buying EXC, I would wait till the dust settles. JMHO

    Insiders are likely to be in the 39.6% tax bracket. They may have deferred shares via stock options, also other tax qualified accounts (IRA's) etc, but when they buy big it is usually taxable. They exploit a low share price or an opportunity for a large gain by virtue of their inside knowledge (legally). I was suggesting that us retail investors might follow their lead.

  • uhadmeatdividend by uhadmeatdividend Aug 26, 2014 8:45 PM Flag

    Low volume, weak hands shaking out, maybe some profit taking. Buyers lying in wait.
    2.5 X $40.06 (KMI) = $100.15. That puts today's KMR at a $2.77 discount to KMI (conversion rate).
    Price is chained to KMI by virtue of the announced deal.
    Consequently, as KMR price drops, buyers come in and price levels out to KMI conversion ratio.

  • I suppose RK was thinking like that!
    We shall miss all the discussions of the KMP/KMR spread and discounts/premiums since its soon rendered moot.
    Will also miss those discussions about splits-mini-splits, fractionals, etc.
    Just dividends and 1099's in 2015, although I will welcome the div growth.
    I'm staying for the conversion. GLTA

    One more stock dividend

    by stockhoncho Aug 27, 2014 2:32 PM
    uhadmeatdividend uhadmeatdividend 3 hours ago Flag

    Actually, same amount of shares (2.4948 shs of KMI per shr of KMR).
    However, buyers would have already bought in (support) at prices well north of $51.
    The deal was based on $89.75 or thereabout. The conversion ratio will stand whatever the price at the time is, by my understanding.

    NNN-D is around 25.59 and NNN-E is at 23.25.
    the difference in the divs is 05.781 cents per qtr, D = 6.625% and E=5.70%.
    the difference per year (4 qtrs) is .23 or 23 cents per share.
    D is selling at a premium of 59 cents and E is selling at a discount of $1.75.
    When D gets to 27 ($2 premium), I'm selling and buying E for the discount.
    The discount of E far exceeds the slight dividend advantage of D.
    When call date rolls around, D will be called first, and if not still collecting divs and gain afforded by discount.

    Rights offering

    by awallejr May 28, 2014 9:12 AM
    uhadmeatdividend uhadmeatdividend May 30, 2014 2:04 PM Flag

    Mega volume today. Many taking their div and leaving before Rights offering.
    This Rights offering behaves like a Secondary in that a price is declared and sellers jump ship. Price usually works its way back up in a few months. I'm sticking around and will add some shares with the offering. Good Price to buy at.

    Sentiment: Buy

    I recall language specifically excluding shares purchased on the secondary market from participating in the Primary Offering.
    Check your prospectus. Probably the 'too good to be true' category.

    Down 2% today

    by uhadmeatdividend Jul 26, 2014 10:41 AM
    uhadmeatdividend uhadmeatdividend Jul 28, 2014 6:20 PM Flag

    That boat sailed. The rights offering was completed. The offering was to buy in at $9, a discount from the NAV. The price is still lower than his entry point so if he added he would lower his cost.
    Be aware though that these Gabelli Funds are leveraged, that is, they use separate funds to increase returns. However, in Market downturns the leverage works against and the fund losses price more than the market in general. Some people use such an event to buy more. I am just saying be aware. If your dad's in for the long haul, the returns will overcome. This fund sheds a 10% dividend, that is nice income. BTW, they do not borrow the $ to leverage but get the $ thru the preferred shares. Might want to check that out, many AAA rated. Good Luck in your investing.

    seems to dump 4-5% after the ex date

    I'll sell position next time 11.75 comes around and buy the discounted Preferred - D with 7.5% div plus nearly $1 discount. Held for 5 years with only slight profit due to divs. Slow & steady looks better for income to me.
    Outlook for NLY not all that rosy currently but it will jump as soon as I sell, it always does!

    NEED help... clarity on when you get the dividend

    by bananabb Jul 31, 2014 1:30 PM
    uhadmeatdividend uhadmeatdividend Jul 31, 2014 3:15 PM Flag

    Incorrect! Ex-dividend means the stock trades 'without dividend'. Holders of the stock prior to Ex-dividend date receive the dividend. The ex-dividend date is usually 2 business days prior to the Record date. This is because it takes 3 trading days for the transaction to be recorded. The Payment date usually follows by 2-4 weeks. Hope this helps.
    Important to research these dates more; they are important. $ can fall thru the cracks easily. Good luck.

    To be clear: following ex-div, the new dividend gets slowly baked in until expressed at the next ex-dividend. At ex-dividend the share price reduces by the amount of the quarterly dividend. The market fluctuations then take over in whichever direction the market dictates.
