Thanks for your post, I was not aware of thepossibility of an increased dividend. Just bought some Dowstock last week, happy with a 4.4% return (with anopportunity for a capital gain) and am delighted to see thatit may soon be a 5% return.
Dow just announced that the dividend can'tincrease until after the merger. Something to do with the"pooling of interestes" accounting method. So, we're stuckat .29/share for this quarter.wwkiv
