Especially now where it has run up unreasonably people will wait till the div pays then dump to lock in gains...You may disagree but it will happen!
Given that the ex divi date is listed as March 2011, this post makes no sense... Clarification would be nice.
We're talking about an upcoming dividend date that is likely to be announced in the next week or two.
If you had it before the last Ex-date, you still have the divy if you sell today, right? So why not just sell now?
10% would be $1.80 or more and sounds too high. I haven't held this stock too long but it generally drops an amount about equal to the dividend and I don't think the dividend is going to jump that much.
If NLY follows the pattern it has been over the last couple of quarters, it will drop back to the $17.35 to $17.40 range after the dividend is paid. At that level, the stock is a buy IMO.
Yes, because the dividend is paid out of the share price.
Your post needs an intelligent explanation or a link.If you're so sure why not short, buy puts, sell calls ?
great point..sounds like a politican...talking head!!
