NRCNA trading at .95. They are going to pay a .33 dividend. They are also profitable. Take a look!

Picked up some a few minutes before the bell. Looks like you have to be a shareholder on Tuesday so maybe I can profit on some late buying or just wait for the cash dividend. Mmmm, dividend.

This looks to good to be true! A .33 cent dividend on a .95 cent stock....It looks as if the price was inflated on this news, so when the dividend is paid it will probably drop that day like crazy, actually giving you a loss. Also, how is this dividend received?

I imagine it's probably paid right into your account at the beginning of December. These dividends arent unheard of (remember Microsoft's 3 dollar a share dividend). But you're probably right about it being too high -- it's run up on the news. Now of course it might run up further this week under more buying pressure -- who knows? Maybe I'll pick up more on a dip. But hey it's money in your pocket if you dont mind holding onto the stock for awhile. At least it's a real company. My dad bought their juice.

I think actually you can get in for the dividend up to the 26th.
 
Posted by yes on :
 
Well that was something I was wondering.

A lot of stocks have ex-dividend dates (3 days beforehand) yet some dont..
 


Posted by stocktrader22 on :
 
Im gonna buy on the 26th, the last day before the dividend, then sell the 27th, i doubt it will jump down .33 within late day 26th and early 27th, this could be a real profit maker.

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Northland Cranberries, Inc.

The cash dividend of $0.33 per class A share is payable on December 1, 2004 to all shareholders of record as of the close of business on November 26, 2004. As of November 16, 2004, there were approximately 94,091,633 class A shares issued and outstanding.

Northland is a vertically integrated grower, handler, processor and marketer of cranberries and value-added cranberry products. The company processes and sells Northland brand 100% juice cranberry blends, Seneca brand juice products, Northland brand fresh cranberries and other cranberry products through retail supermarkets and other distribution channels.

Let me get this straight, if I own this stock at the end of the day on November 26, 2004, and I decide to sell the morning of November 27, 2004, on December 1st I still get my .33 dividend correct?
 
Posted by Bob Frey on :
 
Be sure to be sure you take into account the settlement of the buy trade. Probably will need to buy 3 days ahead of the dividend date.

Check with your broker.

Well according to my broker, he just told me that I could buy BEFORE DEC 2ND and still get the dividend..that doesnt really make sense, considering what the PR says and what I've been told about dividends. <sigh> That doesnt even make sense. The pay date is the 1st!

I dunno what to tell you. Buy by the 26th or earlier to be sure.

Yup, I agree totally. Which means if you truly want to be safe, buy by tomorrow the 23rd.

This is way off topic for this forum but if you like dividends, check out IMH and PTF. The stocks are a little pricey right now but the dividends are sweet. PTF pays out monthly and IMH pays quarterly.

IMH is beautiful. Last quarters dividend check was around 750.00. I always forget about it and then when it shows up in the mailbox it's a pretty cool thing. Those are the only two that I'm in but I'm sure there's more of them out there. A decent screener should be able to give you plenty of them using yield as a criteria. Good Luck.

I just talked to my broker (Scottrade). They said that you cam sell anytime after the ex-dividend and get the dividend. In this case the after the 26th. I also asked if the trade had to settle by then and they said, "You can buy it that day and still get the dividend".

Hope this helps.

Heres what i got from an email response from scottrade:

Thank you for your email. I am showing this dividend is a stock dividend and
based on current information you will need to purchase the stock on 12/1 to
receive the stock dividend and hold it through 12/2. If this were a cash
dividend you will need to purchase the stock 3 business days before the record
date and hold the stock through record date.

Well doesnt the PR say you have to hold it by November 26, 2004? I dont know what or who is right now, because if I have to buy the stock on the dividend day which makes no sense, and then hold it through December 2nd, wouldnt the price drop significantly and the .33 mean nothing.
 


Posted by yes on :
 
My Scottrade broker basically said the same thing...I can buy Dec 1st and still get the dividend and hold it through til the 2nd. It doesnt make sense though, nor that email you received. IT'S A CASH DIVIDEND. Scottrade is either braindead or has their facts wrong, IMO. I mean, the PR is pretty plain it's a cash dividend. I dunno.

I'll call them again tomorrow.

This cash dividend, goes into my scottrade account or is mailed to me?
 
Posted by stocktrader22 on :
 
Ive been looking more into this, and it appears that the reason for this special dividend is from all the money they are getting from ocean spray for them selling their marshes and plants etc...Therefore, is NRCNA actually going to have a business anymore, after the dividend are we looking at a .30-.40 company, where the dividend would do nothing and we would all lose?
 
Posted by yes on :
 
According to this, the money came from one plant and some financing they received:

"The dividend will be paid from a combination of proceeds from the recently announced transaction involving the sale of Northland's Wisconsin Rapids processing plant to Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc., as well as new financing of approximately $26.0 million provided by certain of Northland's existing lenders."

I put some thought into wether or not to buy into this company just for the dividend... I decided not to buy in for several reasons... if you look at the chart's it jumped up to .90 when the dividend was announced but it was hovering between .65 and .70 . So even if you get in for 2000 get your 2100 shares (.95) get your dividend payout 693.00 and then sell back at the .70 you dont gain anything and im pretty sure its going to drop sharply as soon as the payout is done.

So if your going to do it the trick is knowing when to drop out and what to put your sell order limit at in order to not by passed by. I found it really wasent worth the time because theres not enough information as to when to sell the stock and still get the dividend payout and WILL I beable to sell the stock and still make a decent profit?

As far as the company goes i think its still going to stay in business because of this "as well as new financing of approximately $26.0 million provided by certain of Northland's existing lenders." So if they were going OOB they wouldnet get more money from lenders just to payout dividends to holders.

how far will it drop? i have no idea would i invest money just for the special dividend? at first look yes... knowing what i know now.. no.. thank god i didnt...

just money monopoly money's worth

If they are going to be profitable in the future and continue as a viable company, I wouldnt imagine they would stay down at 69 cents forever...just my opinion..

In response to the above post by Monopoly Money:

In exchange for the assets purchased and settlement of the lawsuit, Ocean Spray paid Northland approximately $28.0 million in cash.

Northland and Ocean Spray also entered into an agreement for a period of ten years pursuant to which Ocean Spray will receive, clean, store and process into concentrate all cranberries harvested from Northland's and its contract growers' cranberry properties for a fixed fee.

In addition, Ocean Spray paid to Northland a $5.0 million fee in exchange for a 180-day option to purchase up to 14 individual cranberry properties for an additional aggregate cash payment of $42.5 million plus certain adjustments at the date of purchase. Northland's Meadow Valley, Associates West and Three Lakes cranberry properties are not subject to the option.


Northland will continue to own and market the Northland, Seneca and TreeSweet brands of cranberry and other fruit juices at retail stores and other distribution outlets throughout the United States. Northland will also continue to manage its grower contracts with 44 growers in Wisconsin and Oregon.


John Swendrowski, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Northland, said, "We are extremely pleased to announce this successful transaction, which is consistent with our goal of exploring strategic alternatives to maximize shareholder value.

We believe that fixing our processing costs for ten years will further increase shareholder value."

This is excerpted from a company PR. The full release is here -

I'm not trying to persuade or dissuade anyone from buying this stock. Just clarifying.

Just talked to the broker. He reaffirmed that we only need to hold the stock past Dec 1st to get the dividend.
 
Posted by stocktrader22 on :
 
so according to the broker, we need to buy on or before novemeber 26, and hold until december 2nd?
 
Posted by yes on :
 
No, November 26th isnt an issue, according to the broker. When you have to hold it too though, is another matter. Buy it by the 1st, and hold it past the 2nd I believe..
 
Posted by yes on :
 
Okay, I just re-verified it. You have to buy and hold the stock BEFORE AND THROUGH the ex-div date. In NRCNA's case, that date is Dec 2nd. Which means you must buy it by Dec 1 and hold it until Dec 3rd.

No problem. BTW I bought some of this last week a little after the dividend PR.
95% of the purchases that day went through above .77 cents. About half of those above .85 cents. So it should have good support at those afterwards.

Also the stock is a bit overbought but these things often run on the ex-dividend date. The 50dma and 200dma crossed over recently too. This is a very bullish signal.

I bought more today. Easy 33% or more IMO. GLTA

For some bizarre reason, Scottrade says they see an ex-dividend date of 12/2. Read this from the SEC, and particularly the part in bold. This is the confusing thing...I'm almost suspecting Northland fudged up and told the exchange they were issuing a stock dividend...or whoever the person was that day at the exchange fudged up, and marked Northland's dividend as a STOCK DIVIDEND.
http://www.sec.gov/answers/dividen.htm

"x-Dividend Dates:
When Are You Entitled to Stock and Cash Dividends

Have you ever bought a stock only to find out later that you were not entitled to the next cash or stock dividend paid by the company? To determine whether you should get cash and most stock dividends, you need to look at two important dates. They are the "record date" or "date of record" and the "ex-dividend date" or "ex-date."

When a company declares a dividend, it sets a record date when you must be on the company's books as a shareholder to receive the dividend. Companies also use this date to determine who is sent proxy statements, financial reports, and other information.

Once the company sets the record date, the stock exchanges or the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. fix the ex-dividend date. The ex-dividend date is normally set for stocks two business days before the record date. If you purchase a stock on its ex-dividend date or after, you will not receive the next dividend payment. Instead, the seller gets the dividend. If you purchase before the ex-dividend date, you get the dividend.

Here is an example:

Declaration Date Ex-Dividend Date Record Date Payable Date
7/27/2004 8/6/2004 8/10/2004 9/10/2004

On July 27, 2004, Company XYZ declares a dividend payable on September 10, 2004 to its shareholders. XYZ also announces that shareholders of record on the company's books on or before August 10, 2004 are entitled to the dividend. The stock would then go ex-dividend two business days before the record date.

In this example, the record date falls on a Tuesday. Excluding weekends and holidays, the ex-dividend is set two business days before the record date or the opening of the market – in this case on the preceding Friday. This means anyone who bought the stock on Friday or after would not get the dividend. At the same time, those who purchase before the ex-dividend date receive the dividend.

With a significant dividend, the price of a stock may move up by the dollar amount of the dividend as the ex-dividend date approaches and then fall by that amount after the ex-dividend date. A stock that has gone ex-dividend is marked with an "x" in newspapers on that day.

Sometimes a company pays a dividend in the form of stock rather than cash. The stock dividend may be additional shares in the company or in a subsidiary being spun off. The procedures for stock dividends may be different from cash dividends. The ex-dividend date is set the first business day after the stock dividend is paid (and is also after the record date).

If you sell your stock before the ex-dividend date, you also are selling away your right to the stock dividend. Your sale includes an obligation to deliver any shares acquired as a result of the dividend to the buyer of your shares, since the seller will receive an I.O.U. or "due bill" from his or her broker for the additional shares. Thus, it is important to remember that the day you can sell your shares without being obligated to deliver the additional shares is not the first business day after the record date, but usually is the first business day after the stock dividend is paid.

If you have questions about specific dividends, you should consult with your financial advisor. You can also get information by going to your library and reading Standard and Poor's Dividend Record Binder.

In other words, this is why my Scottrade broker told me it was a stock dividend we're getting.

I dunno..if this was a stock dividend, I wouldnt see any problem with the ex-div date being AFTER the pay date, which is Dec 1st, because that apparently is the procedure.

[This message has been edited by Phoenixx (edited November 23, 2004).]
 


Posted by yes on :
 
Alright, I just called Northland's IR lady and spoke with her...she confirmed the ex-div date was Dec 2nd..she really couldnt explain the discrepancy.. then she referred me to an 800 number and I talked with a guy named Tom Cahill (from First Union Securities I think it was) who said as long as you own it by the 26th, you're all set. Anything after that and you are screwed.

Someone has to be wrong here. The PR does state the 26th so I'm guessing it may be correct after all. I give up. I already sold the stock anyway to buy SGLI. One thing I learned about these cash dividends though: the exchanges, NOT MASSIVE SELLING, is what actually lowers the stock price down. Because the value of the company is lost with a cash dividend, the exchanges literally set the price at exactly the amount of the cash dividend lower. (This is why Microsoft was approximately 27 bucks after their dividend payout.) So basically once this goes through the stock will be 33 cents lower. Not saying it wont climb again, but..

Anyway if you want to talk to these people, be my guest. I'd advise talking to your broker as well. I'm done thinking about this all...GLTA. Here's the numbers:

Northland Cranberries: (715) 424-4444

Tom Cahill (First Union Securities?): (800) 243-7540

Simone Harris (312) 588-4991 extension 4730

I am getting killed now with this one, still have to hold until december 2nd to get my dividend, why is this down at .79 today from .95...wow, maybe it is uninformed traders who though since they owned the stock yesterday they could sell and still get their dividend on december 1st

got the dividend, and now its moving....

quoted from a guy from ragingbull...
I took the dividend and bought more shares. Ocean Spray paid a $5 Million fee for an option. My guess is that they do not intend for the $5 million to be wasted.

"In addition, Ocean Spray paid to Northland a $5.0 million fee in exchange for a 180-day option to purchase up to 14 individual cranberry properties for an additional aggregate cash payment of $42.5 million plus certain adjustments at the date of purchase. Northland's Meadow Valley, Associates West and Three Lakes cranberry properties are not subject to the option."

Appears Sun intends to liquidate the assets for cash. Give themselves the cash through dividends. After assets are liquidated, I would expect them to sell the Northland name, etc. which would include grocery store space. OR they are selling off assets to pay off all debt then profit from retail sales and low overhead. All IMO.
