A delay in earnings release and dividend's announcement is never a good sign. It usually means bad news either in the form of an accounting problem, a major operational problem that has just arisen, cut in dividends, or some major downward adjustments to earnings projections. I'm long, so I hope that I am wrong.
You are not only wrong but STUPID too. 12 comes before 13, and the new earnings date is now 2/12 instead 2 /13. They will also announce dividend amount and Ex-Div date also at that time.I only hope that the operating earnings before the charges are decent and current dividend amount is maintained.
