Its good to see an 1862 blue-chipper (that is making money) take care of its shareholders. Thanks NOV
NOV is going to get alot of favorable press for quite sometime from their actions to post this dividend.
As a NOV holder, I don't like the dividend idea. NOV is a growth company not VZ. If NOV holders want income just sell covered calls. The stock is going to drop $1.1 early next week because of the big dividend.
