The PayPal spinoff from eBay takes place at ‘midnight’ this Friday, July 17, 2015. But the ‘ex-div’ date is July 20.

So you can still buy eBay shares TODAY, Wednesday, July 15, 2015, and get the PayPal spinoff — PYPLV.

PYPLV is ‘trading’ now BUT there are NO shares available. So you are essentially pre-buying the shares!

I owned a few eBay from years back. So I will get some PYPLV on Monday whether I want them or not. I want them. I actually just bought a couple more eBay shares. Way I see it, it is the best way to get into PYPLV.

The split on Monday will be ‘dollar-for-dollar’. Both eBay and PYPLV are trading. So if eBay on Monday is $66 and PYPLV is at $34 — after the split PYPLV will remain (for a few nanoseconds) at $34 and eBay will start off at $32. Essentially OLD $eBay = NEW $eBay + $PYPLV. Got that?

Click to ENLARGE and read. From Yahoo Finance. NOIEX distributions over the last ‘2 years’.


May’s 0.045399 was ‘about time’. NOIEX since its HUGE December 2014 distribution had been very light on the dividends. That the May dividend was 10 x that of April was telling.

But I am no longer convinced. I think NOIEX is struggling and that I have had it with it. I had meant to dump it BEFORE the May distributions. But with the book, the Jag and the trip to Arizona life has been a bit hectic — and as such, inexcusably, I have not spend as much time as I should working on my investments. Well, I will have to put that right.

So, this is just another heads up on NOIEX.


NOIEX, ‘Northern Income Equity Fund’: The ‘Income’ Part Is Becoming An Oxymoron.

Following all of my coverage of NOIEX in December 2014, when we had that unprecedented and uncalled for $3.987 dividend, this blog has become a regular destination for those seeking genuine incisive information on this now moribund fund. So this is another post to keep you posted.

The April 2015 distribution, at $0.00446 per share, was, yet again, on the low side. 64% below the April 2014 distribution.

To help us all out I created this comparison chart. It, as you can see, is not that conclusive. I, however, continue to feel that NOIEX, post-December 2014, seems to be skimping on the dividends. For a fund that has ‘income’ in its name this seems incongruous.

But, to be fair, its overall performance is still fair. Not stellar, but it is hanging in there. Check out this from MarketWatch. The December ex-DIV NAV was $12.57. It has been up as much as $13.09. YOU definitely should keep a close eye on it. NOIEX is no longer a fund that you could buy and forget about — in the belief that it will quietly keep on doing what it should, i.e., doing reasonably well and generating some income. It definitely appears to have lost some steam if not its way. I am not ready to ditch it yet. It has served me well for a number of years. But, I check its performance rather carefully of late. OK? Hope this helped. If nothing else you won’t find this dividend comparison chart, in this easy to follow format, anywhere else. Enjoy.
