Question plz: HLF paid $1.20 dividend in 2011, will shorts have to pay us dividend?
This is as healthy of a company as healthy can get. They've been in business for more than 10 years, they pay regular dividend, they generate more than $4Billion in revenue, they have more than $4 profit per share. I'm long HLF with 10,000 shares with average price of $27.80. Who would I collect my dividend from?
yes if you are short a company stock then you have to pay the dividend. the company pays your dividend of course but Ackman will have a sizeable dividend to pay for borrowed short equity position when due but dont feel too sorry for him...........he is more than making it up with profits on the equity short.
