    ABT dividend

    Hopefully when the new ABT has it's 1st conference call they will make some statement about how they plan on returning value to shareholders via dividend increases and/or buy backs. If they do not maybe one of the attending analyst's will. I owned COP which spun off its refining business in early 2012 and the new PSX started with a very small dividend. They raised it 2 times in a row, so every quarter was an increase. Apparently this new issue with a possible B&L purchase could also have an impact.

    Sentiment: Buy
