If the price doesn't go up nicely being the last day to get the div. then we are being had. It could be a gimmkick for the executives to get some money for their large holding.before the light get turned off.
Fear and greed all mixed up. Trade with confidence. I bought 1000 shares at 12.35 today. Don't load up on this. Limit your exposure. You can always sell your shares and keep the divident and breakeven or incur a slight loss at if you are so worried.
