Well that means I got one right and about 10 wrong. I am looking for an entry point consistent with the new dividend so probably something in the neighborhood of $9.

On the other hand, I have bought/added to pharmas over the last month. I like PFE, AZN, LLY and BMY. I need to look at SGP since it got whacked.

FSP. After about a four year absence, I'll step back into this reit with a small buy.


Company ex-div now. Has a dividend yield about 7.6%

Stock about .9x stated bv. Often in past the stock has traded at 1.2x stated b. As an offset though, bv has been decreasing in past six years-- slowly declining from $13.03/sh to $11.11.

The Carter family under George J. Carter, CEO and President, COB, are insider controlling shareholders. Last month Mr. Carter made two 10,000 share purchases of FSP. He and his management team have not been much direct buyers of the stock.

I'll follow Mr. Carter here. His buys sort of ameliorate my concerns about distribution cuts occurring again (distribution has been steady at .19/q since July '08.)
