i think what is happening here is someone is accumulating to do a div capture play on AOD. this trend/concept has been mentioned by a few regular posters on this board. i think the ex div is coming up and they may be buying the shares over several days.
the market hasn't exactly cracked here but common sense would tell most that the premium should have dropped somewhat over the last few days.
Upswing makes sense in that context. X-dividend date is 6-22. What I like about this one is that the divvy of .12 has already been announced for the next three months. I don't believe they will change that especially since not hinting at it at the conference call a couple of days ago, which in my opinion was outstanding.
