You may be correct about the report, but the 18th would be the earliest report in July in years. The Thursday report day is normally the result of the timing of the directors' meetings held by the company. My own guess is that we will get results either on Friday the 19th or the following Thursday (the 25th). The figures should be out on the wires some time between 11 am and 1:30 pm.
I agree with you that the dividend increase portends a good report. let's hope it is a great one and that the stock keeps rising.
