Posts like these make baby jesus cry.... Yes "something is up." Its EX DIVIDEND DAY! The price is AUTOMATICALLY ADJUSTED by the Market Maker, DOWN the same amount of the dividend paid BEFORE trading. So the price went from 23.23 MINUS 1.05 to 22.18 BEFORE YOU WOKE UP THIS MORNING. Then in pre-market reading rallied up about 80 cents from there. To put it another way, if you bought the stock at 23.23 at the close last night, and sell right here, you get 1.05 in div for .45 cents or a net of 60 cents per share.
