BTU is in a frustrating position as a Snider Method investor. In most cases, it has been and will remain in winter until the price appreciates significantly. The reverse split will create additional difficulty in implementing the standard Snider Method. At this time we are not recommending clients sell the shares or make any adjustments. We will monitor the position and recommend additional changes if the price appreciates back to a level we have made purchases or closer to our average cost.
