up 13.5% in 4 days, now all you had to do is admit you were wrong somewhere in the middle of that trend and you could of made some money, but hey you keep doing what you're doing if it makes you happy.
I was surprised to recoup the div in 2 days so I sold, waiting to see what effect Chanos has plus I'm not convinced that crude is not heading down again, the shale operators have a lot of money invested to not keep producing.
Now that I'm retired I've been looking to move money to income stocks, never owned a REIT, but I now own this. Hopefully Thursday was the bottom.
the ex-div date was the 13th, if you bought shares on the 13th you bought them ex-div, thus the name and why pre-market the bid was the price of the 12th's close minus the div. So if you sold on the 13th you still get the dividend which is obvious if you look at the record date which is 5/15 only two days from the ex-div date. So if you bought on the 12th 3 days later you are recorded as a shareholder on the 15th so you get the dividend. The record date is 3 days after the trade date. Hope that clears up the confusion.
You are probably thinking of Tesla (TSLA) MUSK is the CEO. They are going to sell batteries, big deal, would be cheaper to buy lead-acid batteries, but people just get excited when he comes out with some new idea.
The only green in your revolution is the people getting rich off taxpayers being forced to subsidize fringe sources of energy.
I am now used to this stock, news it goes up, sell, some idiot spends millions trying to prop it up on news day, next day it goes down 5% on the first 100K shares. My order is in for 8.64, and another at 8.49
There was hardly any open interest in the options to cause a 6% move, either someone wanted out or the shorts wanted it down. the 850K shares on the close says someone wanted out.
Yep, only way to play with this stock is buy and when you make 20 cents or so sell. This is just a toy for someone to jerk around shareholders, making money on the volatility.
