LET ME SPELL IT OUT FOR YOU ONE TIME before you have to return to first grade math
1. Pound the table at $18.44 two days before x-divident date
2. Divident ex date = .40 reduction in share price 18.44 less .40 = 18.04
3. Current price = 18.12.
4. Current gain of .08/share over the "pound the table" quote
5. Mrs. Hawkins is waiting for you to return to school. Your tardy again. No recess for you...#$%$
Fidelity finally filled my additional small position at 18.47 12:45. It took about an hour for my order to fill at the 18.47 level. I originally had a limit order for 18.25 at the open hoping this would get down another 1%.
