True, 1.21 is roughly the average price it has traded at in recent weeks… and a rational price to pay,
I think, but no reason to fret about the offering — we’ll be able to buy at that price or lower on the market over the coming months, I’m sure.

I’ll just reiterate that this is not a hot story idea, it’s a yield play.

There’s some mild growth assumption built in at this price, as is needed because they’ve had to pay stiffer prices to buy songs recently, and perhaps it will do better if the song royalty world changes meaningfully over time (as it has over the past ten years), but I’m comfortable with the current price and not counting on the cash flow growing dramatically.

Limit orders are controlled by brokers, usually you’ll enter an expiration date when you place the order (or the broker will have a default date). I’ve had limit orders cancelled by my broker for corporate events, like splits or special dividends, but most cancellations are really expirations. You’d have to ask them if you want specifics. I’m not aware of any laws for limit orders on foreign exchanges, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any.

TD Ameritrade cancels my buy order for HPGSF and gives this message: “only closing orders are accepted on foreign etfs”. Thoughts? Workaround??

Same here. I bought some in December with no problem. Today I tried to increase my position and I got that same error message. Very disappointing. I wish we had some explanation.
