      That is correct. As you may know, stock transactions take 3 business days for the transaction to settle into your account. So, in order to be a shareholder of record by the 30th, that means you would have needed to be a buyer of SBGI no later than the 27th of November. The reason the stock price dropped was due to it "X'ing" out yesterday.
      Good luck rpw
