Something to think hard about today: There is a reason they have not declared a dividend by now and that reason will shoot the stock one way or another very soon, IMO. I would love to hear objective ideas as to what it is that we don't know. My initial thought was the rumored buy-out, but it doesn't seem that recent insider trading supports the idea. Also, if you just flat out disagree with me, let me know. I have no experience.
Fair enough, its peanuts. $0.25 a share isn't a pay day for me. Still don't understand why if the announcement will have an immaterial effect on the share price, they haven't made an announcement. I was expecting one last week. If they decide not to declare dividends, do they just not make an announcement?
I think that something is definitely in the works - it's impossible to say what, although your point about insider selling is interesting as well. It may still be a buyout, but my guess is either a partnership or acquisition.
I feel no dividend declared or ex dividend date is odd. I had a dream that it was a buyout offer but in that same dream i won the lottery and the cardinals won the world series (AGAIN).
