Re: Stella Jones (Symbol-SJ)

Thanks for the heads up PI. I've been intending to add to my existing position of Stella. This seemed like a good opportunity, so I put in an expression of interest at TDDI.

The interest will show up in you account at the end of each month. It is reflected as extra units in your account.

Re: Preferreds

TDDI's new offers for split shares only allows for an expression of interest in either the Class A units or the Matched Units (i.e. Class A unit plus Preferred unit). AFAIK, TDDI's new issue offerings have never included the standalone preferred split share units. I suspect that you are correct that...
