    Who sells ex dividend

    I never understand the folks who wait to sell post dividend posted to you. yes you get the dividend but the stock trades immediately at that lower price so you really don't benefit at all. then if you sell like GLP today dn an additional 75c you actually wind up losing money plus you have to pay taxes on the distribution and the capital gains (if you made on the stock).

    very silly
