And by the way, MacMoron, have you calculated exactly how many dividends you've given up since you owned this POS? Without doing too much research, since you're hardly worth the effort, it appears that you have given up at least 21 dividends in share value. What a great deal. Lose 21 dividends so you can collect 1. Yep, your kind of investing math.
macnaughton, let's discuss "stupid" for a moment. Do you understand that when a stock goes ex-div it drops by at least the amount of the div on ex-div day? So now, let's take this in baby steps, so that your sadly developed mind can grasp it: A "stupid short" pays your stupid dividend and on ex-div date some "stupid long" watches as the share price drops by at least the same amount. Now, can you add -0.14 and +0.14 together? Can you get the answer? It equals your IQ. Simpleton.
Happy New Year Liza. I sold out but I still come on this board for the entertainment value. Many of the posters are dumber than I, so it makes me feel good. I used to enjoy your posts. I haven't seen you on the LINE board lately? That's where the money from my PWE sale went. I was lucky enough to buy near the bottom of the big dip.
It stretches the intellectual boundaries of these savvy investors to comprehend such eclectic ideas such as ex-div and record date. Much like comparing the composition of Handel's Messiah to the creative capacity of a paramecium.
You're absolutely right; Misinformation IS far worse than no information.....that's why your post is just plain WRONG. The ex-dividend date for PWE's next quarterly dividend payment IS in fact Friday, December 27, 2013. I'd suggest YOU go back and read the press release from November 6, 2013. Then you might consider retracting your erroneous post....
