Sell after it.
why "sell after it"?
won't the share price go down on ex-div day?
you wind up with a taxable cash dividend and a cost basis lower by the amount of the dividend.
why should anyone who's looking at a possible capital loss even consider sitting around to get a taxable dividend?
wouldn't they be better off simply selling the stock before ex-div and taking a lower loss before the price drops ex-div?
The rumor is around $2.75 a share
