thanks guys ... I think my ave now is 3.50-4.05 . I did the initial order at about 3.00 i believe ( should have bought the whole load at 3.00 - who knew !!"" .... I kept on buying as the stock rose past 5.00 buying on weakness - which was not often !!! ...believing in the story and seeing diversification happen . I pumped in about 150k in dollars about 43,000 shares . I bought some on the rrsp side of things and dripped it ... the drip has really accumulated my share count too !! wow ! 

at 43k if someone were to offer me a 15.00 /share price ....but i really dont think i would sell out for less . I feel its a easy double from here ....plus the Div is safe and increasing ...

its kind of crazy one company can basically set you up for retirement ... but in AQN's case it did . not selling .

its all good with AQN .... 

win some, lose some .... pipes and power all the way .

I also own capstone(cse) - a smaller position  ...now this is a concern for me ....sure ive been collecting a very nice Div from them - bought at about 4.00 .... but im concerned about the contracts they have to renew going forward - some were very juicy . maybe this is the time to buy a power company is when there is some risk and uncertain future . buy in fear /sell into optimism ???   anyway , in CSE's case ...im sure someone will step up and buy the power off them ....may at less margin ,,, but someone will buy there power .
