Special Dividend? Anyone know if PFE is paying out before year end?
If you have a nearby need for the money, now would be a good time to sell. If, however, you can wait, the stock has a good possibility of going up 3-5 dollars a share this year along with a nice dividend increase, which should more than offset any tax considerations.
Your response of the share price going up from three to five dollars is in line with my thinking, however, I doubt it will be attained this year. In my mind, the increase in the dividend tomorrow will possibly increase the stock price to 25.50$ if it's not already factored in its price.
