RE:RE:RE:RE:STB management

I bought HEE at $4.33 not 9 months ago as I believe we have seen the lows in the price of oil and although I don't expect a quick rebound the cover call writing feature provides additional income. I' more

RE:RE:RE:STB management

Interesting thinking. 1. Why should STB be more prone to managment mistakes than any other company? 2. Most companies that pay dividends and grow them, would take years to reach the level where more

RE:RE:STB management

I agree 100% smcapinvestor, a management mistake or rising interest rates could seriously wound this company which is why I've lightened up on STB. I feel more comfortable with companies that earn more

RE:STB management

They have to issue shares because their leverage has grown too large. And why is that? Because they pay a dividend they don't earn with debt. And now there are more shares outstanding, so greater more

RE:STB management

Why do you think that retiring debt with equity is bad? Although I have to say that if the company were able to issue some more CDs and end up paying only 2.7% interest as they did on the 6.75% more

STB received CAD 50 million which was  USD 48 million for the 6.75% CD in 2010 and based on current exchange rates is paying USD 40 million to redeem the certificates. According to my calculations more

Ah, I see.  The dilution seems more relentless to you than to me because I am used to REITs doing multiple issues a year.  If I recall correctly, D.UN did 4 issues in one year, a few years ago. more

A Different Viewpoint

I hate to see my portfolio value drop except in December because I live in a country that has a wealth tax based on assetts on December 31. The 6.75% Covertible Debentures come due in June so $ more

The share count has gone up 50% in the last 4 years, including this financing. 40 million added in that time. That is a lot of shares.  rate and reply

RE:RE:RE:STB; Shareholder Value Creation or Destruction?

I just realized that the number of new shares needed to redeem the 6.75% CDs in June is lower now, than at any time over the past 3 years. If the CAD appreciates against the USD over the next 3 more
