    Why is SPO always on Thursday?

    YBF All I know the PPS even three weeks after the SPO didn't go down. So their can many reasons why, but bottom line PPS hardly moved at all. What bothers a lot of us are waiting for this next SPO, including me and we might have to wait till next quarter and miss out on the next div.

      yes, that could happen

      so what I do instead of just trying to capture one aspect of the stock's IRR is diversify between the div and the swings

      i have a pile of long shares that just sit there collecting the yield like they're in the world's best savings account. over time, they will appreciate mean zero value, but deliver lots of income.

      and i use options to capture the fluctuations about the mean, which are forced motions caused by the div and the SPO.

      i also add to my core holding on the dips, but it's getting to where it's enough of my total portfolio that i need to think about standing pat on that to avoid being un-diversified overall. 2-3 more dips, maybe.
