Hello all,

This is my first time visiting your British Airways Board, too tell the truth - I spend all my time on Energy/Oil/Mining & metals/& the Real Estate Boards; but I needed to ask a question Re. BAB so; what better place to ask my question but here!

I would like to invest in BAB; but I have heard that the money transfer between US dollars, & what you get back in Dividends is different! Was that clear enough?

I don't really believe that true; but now I'm not sure!

BAB is say; listed at $28.24 & its Dividend Rate is now at $4.91; so if I invest $2,824. US & purchase 100 shares of BAB; will I get $491.00 back in dividends each year? Or will it be a diferent amount all because its paid out in British $'s???

Please mail any replys that you might have to my E-Mail address as well; this way I'll be sure to get any of your feedback that you care to offer!

***** Thanks in advance! ****** captbuddha - out!
