Because I already owned RAL - for me it is a wait until my RAL becomes a LT gain at the end of July and then if I wait till they close it is another 6% (or much more annualized if closed soon). I almost hope they don't close until January of 2002 so my Uncle Sam does not get his cut for about another year from then and I'd have the opportunity to get another return (or loss) from a new investment using the float of his deferred payment. Or with RAL would that be a de-furred payment.

Here is a link back to the starts of RAL threads on this board a while back:
