Why is it that so many people do not realize how a dividend works? Research it before you go running your mouths about how good they are. You do realize that when ever a divivdend is issued that the stock price drops by that amount before the market opens that day. For example if your stock is $3.00 and they gave a $1.00 dividend then on the day they issue the dividend the stock will now be $2.00 so it's just like selling 1/3 of your holdings. Personally I don't want to sell any of my sirius stock so when I get my dividend I will turn around and buy the sirius on just got screwed out of back.
