    Hopefully, some of these investment analysts, such as Morgan Stanley, will upgrade their ratings on this stock given the excellent financial results reported. Additionally, the recent cold weather should prove fruitful for the upcoming quarter.

    Where is the BOD ? Renna needs to go. Way to go ,diluting shares when share price was already beaten down from bad acquisitions, bad financial decisions. He’s still making his millions every year. Increasing shares so him and his cronies can divvy them up. Basically saying screw the shareholders there getting theirs!

    Where are the BOD? How long are they going to stand by and let Renna run this into the ground? Share dilution, lousy earnings bad call after bad call. The BOD have a fiduciary duty to the owners of this company, the shareholders. I’ve been a shareholder for over 35 years and have never seen this company so mismanage . When will something be done before we are in the single digits?

    Well here's the deal on the Friday meeting; the proxy for additional shares passed and a form with the SEC will be filed shortly with the actual results. Rena's remarks state that the additional shares will not be dilutive to existing shares, however the additional shares may be used for future opportunities for the company and share holders. Additionally Rena stated that 98% of existing shares have currently been issued. (Note that the new shares are authorized, but not in circulation) OK s let's see what happens with these additional shares.

    This is a growth company and selling off on the 10 year bond. I am sticking with it and buying more.

    IF we see an increase in the divided, it should be announced this week. What are your thoughts?

    Hey management ,something needs to be done to right this ship. It’s NOT issuing more share and further diluting shareholders value. Why is there no mention of what the increased shares are for? So management can increase their payout?

    Shares down 40%, I feel this can play out several ways. 100,000,000 shares most likely at the open of the market or Bank of America or large bank promised shares at say $20. That is 2 billion in cash SJI will have and will need to put to work quickly. SJI will either pay down debt, which is a problem. SJI will acquire NJR, and then an Exelon will come in and acquire all three gas utilities in one swoop. If this is the case, this has been in the works for awhile. Excelon offering $40-$50 a share for over 1 million customers that are in there territory. Next possible reason may be grow a cutting edge renewable business line which is being required by New Jersey Green master plan. Purchase many renewable green energy projects, which is now a much needed part of a fossil fuel company. Either way approx. 2 billion dollars raised will need to be put to work with profitable companies or projects because the dividend needs to be paid on 220 million shares. The new business venture Catamaran, will hopefully be more profitable with hydrogen, biomass,wind,and solar. This will happen for sure, it already is. I hope this works out for all SJI shareholders and may take 5 years to play out. In the mean time I am trying to be positive, almost a 6% yield on shares, if you have the stomach for it and risk, buy up as many shares while cheap, and hopefully in 5 years, shares are worth $40-$50 . Hang in there longs, we have no choice
