Are you reinvesting your dividend and asking what the share price will be for that transaction? Other than that, I don't understand your question. If you put in a trade it should either execute right away or when your limit order price hits.
I agree that lowered guidance is not good, but the amount is negligible. I predict that the share price will bounce back before too long.
This is a buying opportunity if it fits in your portfolio. I thought I had enough shares, but i'm in the process of reviewing that.
At this point, we don't have anything to say about what we get.
The stock hasn't been traded since Friday, so that means that this message board will disappear soon. Of course, we can still post messages on the AT&T board.
Remember to save all of the online information you think is important before much of that disappears, too.
I'm not sure how they arrived at 1.892 shares of AT&T per share of DTV.
For each share of DTV, I thought we were supposed to get $28.50 per share in cash and $66.50 in AT&T stock.
If I divide $66.50 by 1.892, I get $35.15.
According to Yahoo, the last time AT&T traded that high was July 17.
Can anyone explain this to me?
The dividend showed up late in the day today.
I was assessed a fee for the first time and wonder if anyone else had the same thing.
Did you get that date from Yahoo? They never get those dates right.
On the AT&T web site they say that July 10 is the ex-dividend date.
Even then, I doubt if the deal will close in time.
Now officially posted on Bank of NY ADR web site:
$0.1662 per ADR share
US Record date 7/16/15
US Payable date 7/27/15
You're right, but the T share price could drop at any time, and we would see the same valuation. If we are to hold on to the T stock, we want them to have a low share price at the time of the exchange, followed by gains in share price. T has a good dividend, but two things concern me: apparent customer dissatisfaction with their services; uncertainty about the viability of their business model going forward.
I have it as about $.17/share in July & November (total of $.34/share for both combined), and about $.39 for the special dividend in September.
