No announcement yet on the next dividend in September. With a 7-10 day lead time from announcement to XD date, the earliest we could see the next $1.25 is the 15th. Most likely, we're looking at Spetember 25-26 for XD date.
Dividend will be announced on 9/18/12, with an EX-Date of 09/26/12.
If they do announce on the 18th, with an EX post OPEX, I am shortingPuts @ 1.00 ITM for Sept. I can't find better odds money out there!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
