It is time to play that fabulous new web game = Guess the Divvy amount & Date !!!!
(announcer dub: Brought to you this week by your friendly RAS short - Remember; if it doesn't say "Dividend - then it's payment in lieu" !!!)
I'll kick it off - while I would LOVE to see an announcement on Option Expiration date 9/19/08 - I don't assume that will happen ..
Annoucment date: 9/29/08
What's your guess ???
Again, winner to claim King (or Queen) of the board for a quarter ..
Earnings estimate winners were: PullMyFigerNail & Clrodrick
"Adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.54 for the quarter ended June 30, 2008"
I wouldn't expect anything until after the close ... probably this evening after dusk, but it could easily be tomorrow.
I don't think they'll want to waste time getting this out, but today is Rosh Hashanah.
...all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
r. bacon drinks Folger coffee
Announce date will be sometime around 10/1.
I fear that it will not be .46, but considerably less than that.
Probably around .20.
Gut feeling is that if it was good (.46), they would have released it by now. Late is usually not good.
While late is usually not good. I think, as RJ pointed out last qtr, that RAS has changed their historical date pattern. Why make a qualified guess when, by waiting a few weeks, mgt can get it exact. To announce a penney ot two too much would kill the P/P when the actual numbers come out.
I'm am also expecting less than .46, but then again what have they told us in the last 90 days to suspect less? Mgt has been forthright as long as I've owned this stock. ('02).
