The drop should be good for the dividend reinvestment brigade?

Hi rsboyd,
Many Bonds,notes etc require an investment of $50k--not sure how that sits with you.
At present these are value.........
AXA Fixed yield – 11.73% (price $86.25) – running yield (income) 8.70%pa
AXA Floating yield – 13.43% (price $73.50) – running yield (income) 6.73%pa

If interested call FIIG .Paul Gray is a dealer there who knows his stuff. Have no connection with FIIG but hold AXA and Swiss re Bonds.

You may also have a look at AYF.This is a listed Fund which invests in high quality Hybrids.Straight shooters who will provide you with meaningful research.Pays 8% with some additional Fr. Credits.
Best of luck.

APA Group is a defensive infrastructure stock which around its current share price and recent distributions provides a 7% unfranked yield. They are now offering a long term notes issue which will give an estimated ~8.2% unfranked interest.
Would anyone like to comment on the suitability of accepting this notes offer or are shares better liquidity. Also are there any better offers around.

It seems APA weren't the only ones sold off!

MISC axes 1,400 jobs

Malaysian International Shipping Corporation (MISC)
is laying off some 1,400 employees worldwide this year following its exit from the container shipping business, Seatrade Asia online reports. The second phase of retrenchment will be carried out on 30 June after a first phase was executed on 31 March, according to local media reports. The company said it has extended a reasonable severance package to affected staff and provided support to assist the affected employees in managing the change in their careers.

MISC, the shipping arm of state oil firm Petronas, announced its exit from the liner business last November due to the larger-than-expected investment necessary to stay relevant in the industry. "Our focus in recent years has been on providing maritime and transportation solutions for the energy sector, and hence, the bulk of our resources are dedicated towards growing our energy-based business segments," said Fiona Clare Pereira, group corporate affairs general manager at MISC. "Notwithstanding the present depressed freight environment, we see growth prospects for both the petroleum/chemical tanker and LNG tanker markets over the longer term," she said. Source : PortNews

The Petronas stock was placed by Smith Barney at or around the lower range of the price range I was given last night. Considering it has gone to a number of institutional and professional and private clients I am not that surprised it all got done.

This placement has been mooted for a week or more but the chinese walls were in place so my guy knew something defensive was going to be placed but didn't know what stock.

I believe Petronas took advantage of the 50bp cut to get it away. My opinion only. I have no proof just pulling it out of my arse.

Pretty obviously the reason it dropped is the stock was done at a slight discount to market.

But why that stock and not the others around the place. My other "dogs" weren't even touched. (maybe thats why they are dogs)

My question is that WHO has been buying these stocks. At close its 133mil shares traded ( = 133mil x $3.85 = $512+mil .... thats a lot of money.) I would think that if there was so much interest in this stock and like you say the 50BP drop is the cause they must know somethning. But why at the same time did it drop 6% of its closing price of yesterday.

Again someone must know something.

50bp drop is a positive for owning APA due to the yield and defensive characteristics relative to cash.

I was referring to the ease in placing the stock when cash is less attractive by 50bp.

Why would the 50bps move affect it? My first thoughts are that the value of the yield would increase relative to bank interest. My reasoning for the drop would be that some big supporting money is looking elsewhere to invest after a good run. Market interprets this negatively, but the yield got bigger. Did other infrastruture stocks came off a bit too possibly as a result?
