This is good news and beat everyone’s expectations. Remember the big growth is coming up – if the mines are approved. The $1.13 beat last quarter’s $1.00 payout by 13%.
If you have any short in-the-money calls (expiring in May), you will want to close and trade up. Otherwise your short calls will be called.
Although this is good news, what we are really waiting for is the approval of the first mine: due by May 1 approx.
