Actually , most stocks trade big volume the day before ex-dividend as some investors such as myself like to pick up the stock in order to snag the dividend. But, I do like this company.
How come you dont like this company. Just curious , it should have lots more up side moving forward.
If you read my post, you'll see that I said that I DO like this company. They have tons of gas/convenience stores all over the place. I think it's a great safe hold for a conservative investor. I also love INTC for a move to 40 within 6 months.
