lets separate the lurkers from the investors. who would put forth a price ( top price) prior to the ex date. 17.25 .
I placed a good till cancel sell order in for $17.39 today.
Better drop it two-bits before the close.
the early line is looking to be between 17.15--17.18 we were all a bit optimistic. sell today IF you DON'T want the div but the capital gain.Thrash Man
PS you do see the price as of today. i believe we have surpassed your guess.
