I also think this is the explanation. I think the management wanted to have more money to put into the market before the interest rates goes up ( ... well if i does), if this is the case we may get hi return of the money.
While many investors looks only days/weeks ahead you have to run a company looking years ahead to succeed.
... just a few hours after i posted this, i actually got the money on my account :o
- Usually it only take 2-3 days after the payout-date before the dividend is validated the account, but this time it took almost 2 weeks.
