I think I will. How fast do you think this recovers from the drop?
I have been away for a few months but looking at history - April 6-15 looks like the best time to get back in. Other have posted extensively on this in the past but in general, you do better off not buying right after EX
In past quarters,I sold pre ex but in the 3 days it took my funds to settle it always made up part of the 1.25 drop so I would have been ahead with buy and hold;that's what I did this time.
I had the same experience. It's a lot less hassle just hanging on to the shares. If you want protection buy some puts.
