  • Yes.
    Makes me wonder: Is Citi that confused or did Baron's misquote them?

  • It's a shame that the utilities got hit hard in yesterday's market along with other dividend stocks because of the fear of eliminating the tax break on dividends. These will be more sought after in retirement/tax free until you take a distribution accounts.

  • PGN doesn't pull up on any site anymore. What does come up is Polish Oil and Gas Co. on the Warsaw exchange. Guess that's not the one? :-)
