I received my check the middle of last week on the 26th or 27th. Possibly due to holidays, the postal service and the transfer agent took just a bit longer to get the checks cut and sent. If you don't get it by the first business day of the year, I'd give them a call and ask about it.

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.

I like being bought out over losing out. I'd rather have the stock exchanged for NSRGY shares, but this way you knew all along how much you were getting in $$$. Pay the tax on your gain. Much better than losing it all. If you are interested NSRGY sponsors a DRiP. The DRiP is very similar to RAL's. $20 minimum, invests around the 10th of each month, but only pays a dividend yearly.

They couldn't roll it from our DRiP to theirs because we all get treated the same. Oops. Sorry. I won't mind that.
