well today kinda sucked, especially since utilities were up as a whole. maybe people "cashing out" since they are eligible for the sept dividend? oh well i called middle of the day to see and the bid/ask spread was .50. can't see this going much below 20. good luck.
well looks like they lose .01 for the 4th quarter. Not bad considering it's their weakest quarter, and the fact they lost .02 last year. Pretty much uneventful quarter, boring and quiet. Ex divvy day tomorrow too, .20 for us! :)
thanks for keeping me focused. lol can't see how this is not acquired within the next 2 years. dominion, agl, or wgl would like for the synergies plus the debt is not very high on this compared to other utilities i follow. expect good things if they raised the dividend again. good luck woodfrog.
yeah, got off work early on thursday, stock went from 19.8 to 19.99 in like 5 minutes. the bid ask spread was .25 i think. you are right i would just be happier if the stock would stay above 20., especially with the 10 year staying so low.
fear of interest rate hikes scared off investors in utility stocks. i still cannot fathom how they can let rates go that high. way way way too much dependency on low rates (the fed created this). housing already slipping, student loan debt, credit card debt, etc. the highest i see 10 yr going is 3% i agree with you on short interest. still cannot help but think back to that huge run on huge volume a month or so ago. something is going to happen with this stock. look at EGAS
i know. i guess if i feel confident about it i shouldn't worry about the day to day fluctuations. i have bought a lot the past two days, larger than what i had prior b/c i feel confident about this stock. did you notice EGAS. stock flying on rumors of buyout. one day this will be acquired imho ex divvy in a month also. will hold out. good luck. just venting
my gtc order filled today. 21.20... thought that was pefect until i checked it just now. oh well, 11.5% not a bad return. will return below 20. good luck!
that was some crazy volume on friday. very unusual. hoping for better things to come from this stock.
so apparently morgan stanley downgraded the stock to equal weight, thus the selloff after hours. how nice of them to do it where were they when the stock was 17? slime balls
let me also add that i've owned a few ng/utility stocks that were near the same market cap that got taken out buy larger competitors. one was cgc (cascade natural gas) the other one was cinergy. i ALMOST bought DPL dayton power and light) which was another one that got taken out. lg (laclede group) just bought one in alabama i think. in due time this one will be acquired in my opinion. meanwhile you get the dividend and peace at mind when u go to bed. sorry for the rambling i have a good feeling about this one!
Glad you posted something. My thoughts exactly on the ex-divvy. Frustrating nonetheless. just wanted it to stay about 20 but a dip below 19 and I'll buy more. Can't follow it during the day at work but do see the erratic trading on the hourly 1 day chart. oh well, i'm in this one for the long term. cheers
very nice call. kudo u need props. not long or short the stock but calls like that need to be recognized.
i know i also have td ameritrade. i seen the news on the yahoo finance page about an sec filing that's what tipped me off. it was very vague and uninformative. always used nasdaq page for more detailed info. glad i could have helped that's what these boards are for! my rgco had 888 shares trade today. lol it's another sleeper stock i have
go to nasdaq web site. type in symbol name at the top...then on left column click sec filings...it should have all of the sec filings on that page. good luck!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
i like these low float boring stocks. this will get eaten up one day and in the meantime we collect the divvy....although not the highest it's stable. these tech stocks have gotten clobbered and rightfully so! holy cow twtr, yhoo, cree, amba....geeze some of the ones i follow, not own. right now holding this, DGAS, and dfs....rest in cash. market very crazy lately.
