The dividend could be the reason for the pop. The market is still healthy base on the observation that most of the stock now are (78%) above the 200 day moving average, while the SP500 is just moving sideways after the surge 2 weeks ago.
so when is the div date...and based on what you guys are looking at is this a good time to sell or buy..i know we are close to the upper bollinger, the only reason i look at this is because lot of the bd members here have mentioned it in the past and seem to use it as one of their measures...i have been away from the computer for a few days and came back and found a pleasant surprise...the pope up..i didn't know what to expect...thanks for your guidence and GLTA
Probably will be the run-up since this happens consistently every three months. Went in 50% since this might be the only oppurtunity before we hit the debt ceiling sell-off. RDSa hasn't done much of anything for the past few months so decided to dip in my toes. Even it isn't much of a runup at least I'll get the dividend which is alot more than what Thrift is paying.

I have been in 50% since at $69. Nice pop today. We have hit the top of the bolinger band and have broke the upper slow stochastics and Williams % twice. Might be time to sell. The market will get agitated and go lower sometime in Feb because of the clowns in government over deficit ceiling. I want to be out before the drop and take advanage of a lower price..65-66. Love to hear your opinion..GL all!
I have a hard time believing anymore but maybe so.
I had to go around the world to access the board for days and it seems back to normal last few days after trying everything. Anyone else have same problem. I don't like the new Yahoo format but I suppose we're stuck with it.
