Expected a sell-off from the "divie junkies", but when you're good.....you're good. Motley has been a friend of Unilever for years and current articles are helpful. "Bring out the best, bring out the Unilever"? .....ER, well, Something like that!
I agree with you....It should have had a higher volume day! It opened lower today on the day before x-div...I picked up relatively cheap shares after the open, and hope to add tomorrow on the drop. I tend to think some folks have trouble figuring this stock out, since it pays a bi- annual dividend,one twice as large as the other(this will change next year), and the sensitivity to the dollar/pound exchange rate. UL is a great long term play, and is a core holding in my portfolio. Good luck to all!!
