Recent Sale

In the past, I purchased 350 shares of Sherritt International in my margin account at $2.12 per share. Sherritt International has mines located in Cuba, Madagascar, and Canada.

Recently, the results for for the Q2 which ended Jun 30 were released a little while back. The resulting adjusted Q2 loss was $0.39 per share. The combined adjusted operating cash flow was -$0.12 per share. Both of these numbers were also negative for Q1. You can get a rough idea of the company struggling, by the fact sheet (courtesy of investor relations).

With the company struggling due to the price of nickel and the over supply of nickel, the company filed to have the maturity dates moved out on their debentures and these extensions have been approved. You can get more information on this issue by clicking here.

With the company struggling  for the foreseeable future and the fact they do not pay a dividend currently, I decided to  unload my shares at 350 shares at $0.82 per share. The cash as a result of this sale can be better used in a company that pays dividends.

  1. While I never heard of this stock before it looks like you made a good call to take whatever is left and invest it in a dividend paying stock. They can't all be winners and sometimes selling is much tougher than buying. Thanks for sharing.
