Anyway, we had a vote, and the "Accept/Buys" outnumbered the "Wait/Review Furthers" by over two to one, with a few "Reject/Don't Buys" (official count was 35-16-4). Pass!! Woo-hoo! The order goes in in a few days. Chelsea has been strong in my Fool shadow account lately. I mean, don't even get me started on ATI, which is up almost 17% in eleven trading days! But Chelsea is up a nice 5.71% in those same eleven days, which is great, especially considering the upcoming dividend payments (ATI pays no dividends). My whole portfolio is up 6.3% in eleven trading days, an annualized return rate of 271% before dividends!! Good grief!
But going back to SIG, it was a fun day, and an impressive victory for us. Some hard and time-consuming work (but absolutely nothing compared to what's ahead of me this Summer), and I'm glad it's over for a little while (I still have time to salvage As and Bs in my classes now). I'm happy to see the SIG made a decisive decision based on our research and presentation.
