People are claiming the dividend will make the shorts cover. Think again. The dividend is 20 cents. The shorts will, with a single keystroke, knock QCOR down by 20 cents to make it up. It will take them about 10 seconds to make that money back by having a lower share price.
hey smart guy, of course the divs aren't going to drive shorts to cover. the point is, time is not on shorts side. divs are a factor, but i think sitting on a short position with a company with these type of earnings, expensive short margin costs, less days to cover, stock buyback is no fun!
