When can i buy this stock or what is the cut off date to buy this before the next divy payout? They payout on Sept 6th. When do i have to own it by? Aug 6th?
Thanks in advance. I love this company and at $65.50 its a great bargain. Bought at $61 and sold at $67 last time so buying below $67 is great, especially with a 2% divy since i sold 1 week early last time...
I can't sell puts as i mentioned before. I will be looking into doing that sometime next year but not now. I currently hold FSLR, MGM and JASO in addition to BDX. FSLR was a steal at 121 this week. Its going to 140 very soon and back above 200 by end of Jan 2010. Sell some calls on that and buy some Jan 2010 140 calls to maximize return. If they beat and no harm in the 40-60M write down this thing goes to 220. Good luck.
what a great buy! Man, buffett and I think alike, no? haha. I think he bought after seeing i bought ;) jk, he bought at a higher price. This will be back above 70 by end of week. Good luck longs!!!
mbunce1, eh, don't worry about the C or AIG going up after selling them. This is a much more solid, predictable company...not to mention you scooped it up at GREAT price...it's DEFINITELY a bargain at these prices. In fact, if you've ever tried options at all, you might want to consider selling some Puts on it. You'll collect a premium and get to keep it as long as the price of the stock goes up, remains the same, or even slightly decreases.
