The press release said stock holders of record on 14 Dec.
Based on what I think I should be able to buy the stock tomorrow and get the dividend.
If it was 11th and 14th like some are saying it should have traded as TLABx for x-dividend today
Call and check with the broker before buying. May be the market maker is playing games today buy misguiding people or taking out the stops. Be careful!
I think they should have clearly stated what the ex-date is in their PR. I have invested in TLAB recently and would like to buy more shares but what worries me most is the chart damage after the ex-date. assuming no appreciation today PPS will open tomorrow at a new 52 week low and the whole dividend give back would be a net net negative to shareholders to the extent the stock is not participating in today's rally plus the technical setback thereafter.
