  1. well I guess I have to say good bye to my FCRZ bonds.

    I will NOT be buying this FCRX bond, yield is way too low for me.


      1. The broker indicated 5.00%. In addition, the recent conference call suggested that they were looking to save about 150 basis points refinancing the two existing bonds, which would increase earnings by 5 cents or 6 cents per share. A 150 bips reduction takes you to the indicated 5.00%. It feels like a bad deal for the buyer, but I feel obligated to participate after other allocations that I have received. It would take 5.50% for me to actually want it.
