He confirmed that the Veterans Day holiday was the reason for the Tuesday ex-dividend date instead of the usual Wednesday for a Friday record date.

> Bad move on your part. With much better than expected earnings, with a seasonally favorable time in the market and with a 10% dividend hike due to be announced five weeks from tomorrow, this is the time when Pfizer figures to get moving on the upside.

Will you admit you were wrong if I manage to rebuild my position at $18 and below?
Even if I rebuilt it now at $18.59, it would prove you were wrong in that statement of "Bad move on your part... this is the time when Pfizer figures to get moving on the upside. If there is one position that you should NOT have reduced, it's Pfizer."

Caught in a lie in a single thread -- you admit later in the thread that "a Pfizer exec" did NOT "lay info like that" in your lap... is was a mere assistant by your own admission.
> The last time I closed-out my position with PFE was above $20. The position I have almost closed out had an average cost of less than $18.
Thinking about starting to build a PFE position again if the drops to $18 again...
