Viceroy Stock Chart 5 years


With this chart you can clearly see the progression of the company stock price over the last 5 years. You can notice that the stock price was at an all time low when the privatization deal was announced. Logically this would be the best time to take the company private, because it would cost the buyer the least. Gaylord Lindal and the other Class B shareholders don't care at all, because they are still getting to hold onto their shares. Only the regular Class A shareholders, the individual investors and the common folk will be forced to sell.

If an investor had purchases shares in Viceroy at any time in the last 5 years, the purchase price would have almost certainly been at more than 4$ per Class A share. So it is almost certain that most average people will end up losing money. What ever happened to the old adage " buy low and sell high?"

Well if you invested in Viceroy Homes, it wouldn't matter what price you paid for it, with the privatization deal, you would be selling at the bottom. Except if you're Gaylord Lindal and gang, then you could just hold onto your Class B shares and sell out in a few years for the big bucks!

The chart looks very interesting. It shows basically flat returns from 2001 to 2006, but it only really starts tumbling after management starts cutting the dividend.

I am a shareholder and I purchased at a round the 5 level in 2006. Was kinda shocked when the dividend was completely eliminated since the company wasn't really losing that much money at all.

I'll vote against
