    Losers - sellers yesterday, b4 ex-div

    let's do the math.

    Strategy was sell yesterday @ $22.22 , buy today @ $21.33
    1000 shares sold yesterday = $22,200
    today you buy $22,200 @ $21.33 = 1041 shares

    Those who did not follow strategy are worth $21,320 today.
    Plus dividend $1,160 come July 7 (less 25% foreign tax = $870)
    = $22,190

    Strategy is psychologically ahead but July 7 the div is paid.

    Strategy = $22,200
    Holders thru ex-div = $21,320 plus div July 7.

    We will return to this after July 7.

    • I bought for the div, but I'm holding for the share price appreciation, which seems to happen after the div is paid and the share price has dropped. Win big on both the div and the share price appreciation. We're around 21.33 as I post. wouldn't be surprised if we hit $22 before the weekend. Good Luck All.
