I guess you are estimating those dates based on last years since there has been no declaration yet- or just a typo on the year. I do now see that the record date last year was Feb 15, 2012 and pay date March 9 according to TDA.
If news was good,it would be out by now. I do not buy into the polyanna no cut to div rumors..A signifacant cut to div(50%),will probably tank stock to low 20s,(perhaps teens,depending on overall market conditions),which will present a nice entry and an above 5% yield..
I predict a bottom in late Febuary-early March,then a nice rebound thru the autum., for a nice 57% return in 6 months.
