Remember what Dar said back around March 3rd....... Pound the table buy.... That was when it was around $18.45 or $18.05 post distribution.
At current price of $19.14 that's a 6% gain in under 2 months.
THANK YOU DAR!
What opinion? What don't YOU understand?
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%.
For historical purposes:
2011 x divi date was Feb 2
2012 x divi date was Feb 23
2013 x divi date was Feb 21
2014 x divi date was Mar 6 There was exactly 4 months between the November 2013 x divi to the March x divi last year.
Ortiagia60..... still shorting..... still spouting that this is a $70 stock (or a post split price of $35)? You are losing a s@#$load of money.
@malagasysloth And your point is??? Who cares what price they both closed. I can show you a "cheap" stock at $12 just as easily as a "cheap" stock at $100.
Not saying there is nothing illegal going on here but could the secondary announcement be coming this week and some of the big boys know about it?
How did you know Ken? I do get up at 6:30 to get the kids ready for school and myself ready for work. The first thing I do is head for the iPad to check NRF and drive the price down with my 200 share trades :-)
Yup..... closed yesterday at 53.76 and opened today at 53.05 (reduction for the .70 distribution and 1 penny more). Lesson learned for you Hologic long (a Cramer fan you must be?).
