To begin, like a lot of folks, I'm a RAL shareholder. And the buyout was complete on 12/12. When are they supposed to send out those checks for purchasing our shares? I hate having to deal with a taxable event, but that's the way they wanted to do it. (Why couldn't they just roll us DRIP folks over to their DRIP?... Oh, never mind.) I'd *LIKE* to consider putting those funds in Nestle (or something else, maybe). But, right now, I can't touch 'em.

Maybe it's just because its the holiday season and it takes longer to get stuff thorugh the mail (that powder in the envelopes is white chocolate: don't panic!).

All kidding aside, when other companies I've owned in the past were acquired/sold I was getting SOMETHING in the mail within a week of the closing date - so far nothing from Nestle.

Did I miss something?
