How can the current price reflect the $10 dividend IF:
The $10 dividend was first mentioned on 12/8 ( after the bell) when the price was $42.39 causing the price to "jump" the next day to only $44.70 AND
the stock was already trading in the 42.34 to 44.00 range prior to 12/8? (42.34 on 11/24)
My opinion is that the dividend is NOT fully priced in at $45.
There should be a pop of some kind when the terms/dates are finally "written in stone".
"His rudeness and unseemly manner made me put him on ignore.
I wish I had his mamma's phone number."
TC is a gentleman of the old school compared to the people I've been exposed to on this message board. I'm delighted he joined us. It's a relief after, for example, finis_long.
I wish I had finis's mother's number-- and his boss's, his minister's, his fourth-grade teacher's, and his children's numbers as well. You haven't exactly demonstrated warmth and friendship, either, Id. Those who live in glass houses . . .
What I noticed about TC was that it took him about 48 hours of exposure to the disagreeable folks here to start sinking toward their level, as I have. He responded to rudeness with rudeness. We all do. I have been thinking about it and deciding that this isn't who I am, and it isn't who I want to be. I don't know how many of you are employees of FNF or other title companies like LFG, but maybe the current scandal is not surprising, given the attitudes we've seen here.
I find it interesting that briefcasecharlie was warned to stop posting. Is someone afraid of what might be said here? Anyone who is needs to get a life-- or clean his up.
