    I made a mistake. the x-div date is the 12th. Here is the quote from the geo webpage:

    share holder of record date is not the same as the exdiv date. Share holder of record is 2 or 3 days after the exdiv date. In order to get the dividend you must have purchased the stock before the exdividend day. If you sell on the exdiv day you get the dividend. On exdiv day stocks tend to open lower than the previous day by the amount of the dividend.
