You have the temporary advantage of the calendar. Most high dividend paying stocks, whether it's MO, the MLPs, the REITs, etc., don't appreciate much during the first 30-45 days after the ex-dividend date.
Let's revisit this during the week of February 25 or so--about 30 to 35 days before the likely ex-dividend date. I'm betting the stock will not only surpass $10, but reach $11 again as it did in the September 21-24, 2012 period just before the ex-dividend date. Indeed, with the uncertainty caused by the fiscal cliff overhang on qualified dividends removed, the stock doesn't face the same headwind as it did during the last quarter.
