vkg Debra said: If you were reinvesting dividends, then it is likely that you bought shares within the 30 day window. The timing has to be perfect for reinvestment purchases to be within the 30 day window before and after.

The timeing would have to be perfect for monthly distributions to NOT be within the 60 day window. Your first sentence is right. I was correcting your second sentence, which I'm sure you didn't mean the way it is stated, and was probably a typo.

I understand your interpertation of my statement.

What I was trying to say was that it is very unlikely for two reinvestment purchases to be with the 30 day window.

And most important I am sorry I confused my referrences to other posters by trying to answer both in the same post, particularly as to gender. I have trouble responding to more than one post on this board because only one post is visiable when replying. On most other boards the entire thread remains visable so you can copy quotes from several posts and respond to each independently in the same reply. That would have prevented my erroneous referrences, for which I am, again, truly sorry. It was inadvertant, like a typo. ed
