Something they don't talk about, if your going to buy shares and expect to get the dividend make sure you purchase the shares by the ex-dividend date.
Since they annouce the ex-dividend date and pay out for 3 mos.( VERY IMPORTANT THE THREE MONTHS PART )intervals your going to have dead money sitting around for well over 2 mos. if you time it incorrectly.
Odds are the pps will be trending in what ever direction you bought it at the time. At the moment its in a downward trend so no reason to purchase it till the last possible day.
The shaningans they pulled for December '08 and Feb '09 was rather suspect. I get the game of doubling, halfing and paying an over 50% premium.
Be careful but I suspect I don't need to tell you that after the Corozine fiasco, what a DB.
Not much speculation about it Dave. Cash FLOW is king. The one thing I cannot figure out is how ANYONE, with a brain functioning more actively than a bag of rocks, would tie up their capital for 30 years buying treasuries. Assured to LOSE . Won't even keep up with inflation's erosion, not to mention that the tax bite would destroy you. Stupid stays stupid it seems.
