I think this month UNH should announce there dividend increase. I do not understand why it has not been announced. They had their meeting yesterday but no news? They usually have had xdiv on June 9. Any idea what is happening?
I just read that BAX will offer their shareholders the option to trade in shares of BAX in exchange for shares of BXLT. Anybody heard of this? If yes what are the details and when is the offer supposed to happen? The Shire offer to buy BXLT sure makes BXLT a much better short term play than BAX which will be a long time recovering from their problems.
Is their any info on when this buyout is supposed to happen and what are the details?
BAX announced they plan on paying new dividend at about 35% of earnings. BXLT said they plan a dividend about 15% of earnings. Assuming earnings split of two companies will be about 55% BAX and 45% BXLT I would assume the new BAX dividend will be about 1.10 -1.15 per year. Either way the new dividend should be announced sometime mid August.
SJM pays $.52 dividend per share every quarter. At the current stock price that equals about 2%. Within the next few weeks it is highly probable SJM will be raising the quarterly dividend to about $.57 or $.58. You would have to buy the stock before the x dividend date which will be announced when the new dividend is declared. The x date should be early August. I have owned SJM for a long time and feel it is a great company to own. Good luck!
I know this is very late to reply but I owned ABT for a long time and the "unrealized capital gain/loss" section of Schwab showed "please provide". Can you look up your numbers and tell me the % cost ratio used?
The expected dividends will be 1.6 for ABBV and 0.56 for ABT. This includes a slight increase from 2012. Payable in February.
Not given yet, but they usually increase dividend in January so I expect the upcoming dividend will be around $6.2/3 plus 10-15% or ~$2.30 per new share.
I see that the MDLZ web site gave the cost distribution for the spinoff at 64.91% to MDLZ and 35.01% to KRFT based upon stock value after one full day of trading (October 2). Good luck to all. We are starting well.
