Yesterday I utilized Option (b ) by overscribing in both my Cdn. Margin and my RRSP. There was no cost for the additional shares, and no commissions. It saves buying in the open market.
I would be surprised if the market starts an immediate run before the end of Dec. Those in control will likely want to shake out any loose shares from weak hands that had hoped for a quick flip. Just something to think about.
I suggest though that this one will be a major play towards the second half of 2013. Those who have been patient should get an easy triple or quadruple from here. Stay the course.
