    • That "additonal provisions" got to me too. I've never heard it before, but I guess it must mean that Hutchinson is putting away some money to buy more shares of DT.....at least that's my guess. That part's okay, but you have to remember that they will eventually sell it. That's the down-side of the story.

      • I imagine soon some large institutions will start buying DT, based purely on a bet on their part that DT will still pay out a dividend this year. The dividend is paid based on investors who own the stock as of a certain date. Do you know what that date typically is? In other words, they usually don't allow you to buy the stock the day before the dividend is paid only to dump the stock a day later. In fact, I thought it was at least a month prior to the dividend declaration date.
