"Karen Finerman, Metropolitan Capital Advisors
Some of you may recognize this name from her frequent appearances on CNBC's show Fast Money. If you're unfamiliar, Finerman runs a long/short equity hedge fund. At the conference, Finerman focused on Golar LNG Limited (GLNG), a liquid natural gas carrier. She has presented this pick numerous times on television before and clearly has conviction in this play. Her thoughts were that GLNG is the premier player in the space and that it would eventually pay up to a 10% dividend based on the companies it owns."
However, the dividend cannot be determined yet, since the amount that would make up that dividend are an average of the closing price five (5) days between 2-11-10 and 2-17-10 as stated by ujok_wehu.
<<For those interested in the dividend, it will be .26 paid 2/15. I don't know how this blog gets so far off track.>>
This board gets off track because there are a couple of rabid fans/foes of "Finerman" who'd rather talk about a TV personality than a stock.
Not sure where your dividend information comes from, but it disagrees with the company's statement. Golar says (http://www.golarlng.com/index.php?name=seksjon/Stock_Exchange_Releases/Press_Releases.html&pressrelease=1367371.html ) that non-US citizens and qualified institutional holders of record on 1/7 will get 1/7 share GOLE on 2/11. They say that US citizens and small holders will get cash equivalent based on the GOLE trading price 2/11-2/17 and payable "about" 2/18.
Based on GOLE's price and the NOK/USD exchange rate on 1/4, that would be $0.26, but I wouldn't count on GOLE's price being stable following the distribution of 10M newly tradeable shares. There's only 65M GOLE available now, and they're down ~10% in USD or 15% in NOK from the September IPO.
