... that would yield a 5% dividend. I figure it should fill sometime around February 1st - after next earnings. I'm looking for a 15-20% deadcat bounce from there (to around $21 - $22). It's a big risk (it could certainly go MUCH lower than $18) but at least I'll get my 5% if I have to become a reluctant long term MSFT holder. If there's one good thing I CAN say about MSFT is that its dividend is safe. If they #$%$ around with the dividend this will quickly become a $10 stock.
