ex-date is shown at Fidelity as 2-11-16
definition I found...
In a nutshell, if you buy a stock before the ex-dividend date, then you will receive the next upcoming dividend payment. If you purchase the stock on or after the ex-dividend date, you will not receive the dividend.
With a large dividend, the price of a stock may move up by the dollar amount of the dividend as the ex-dividend date approaches and then fall by that amount after the ex-dividend date. A stock that has gone ex-dividend is marked with an "x" in newspapers on that day.
ex= means you missed out on this dividend.
So, no buys today receive the Feb 24 dividend according to definition.
Are you the same poster who started this thread?
They(PGH) have historically added hedges...I say that will continue.
The price of oil will be higher in 2017 as world production declines.
You are wrong about 2017.
The company has shown that they are taking their hedging gains and continually adding to hedges in future years.
They will be prepared in 2017.
The CEO leaving just before the earnings release for the big expected quarter.
Too bad it wasn't picked for the stock contest...it would have fit right in.
I seemed to remember he owns a lot of shares he purchased on the open market. he should be way under water on them.
I actually made money with MCZ, but after selling I swore off the stock, mainly because of the posters on that board.
The company took one or more posters? to court and the board improved a little.
Have not followed MCZ in several years.
Hopefully the changes will help the stockholders, but all the positions opened are now filled with people already there...no new blood. Couldn't they have brought it at least one new person?
Do a search...."Pickens cashed out of oil stocks"
I saw a story today calling for $38/bbl oil this year.
Production is not falling off quickly enough.
That may be a good sign...he has been wrong for a couple of years.
From an article about it...
So for anyone who listened to the CNBC and BBG commentator, and bought oil thinking he (PICKENS) knows what he is talking about, our condolences:
Pickens won’t start investing again until crude inventories start to fall. In the U.S., commercial stockpiles have risen in 16 of the past 19 weeks and now stand at more than 500 million barrels for the first time since 1930, at the height of the East Texas oil boom.
(This is probably a good point)
“I will not re-enter, I’m sure, until we start to draw on inventories,” Pickens said. “That’s a key point.”
And just like that another rider of the dumb-luck momentum trade has been exposed for the "expert" charlatan he is.
It is a rough oil market right now.
COP cut their dividend this week.
Not trying to be argumentative, but this will be the 5th at 0.385
There was one in Nov 2015 that does not show in the historical prices when you select dividends.
Olin was brought to my attention today.
A 17% drop due to Q release.
It looks interesting, you might take a look.
They just acquired a piece of DOW.
They produce chemicals and about 15-20% of their business is Winchester firearms
They pay $.80/yr dividend have paid 357 conseq. Qs going back at least 10 years it has been .20/quarter
yield as of today's $13.7 price is 5.8%
I looked at 2 presentations about the merger and what the company will look like post merger.
There will also be some bonds that pay 9.75% and 10% interest, financing the acquisition.
I would suspect that today's glitch is due to merger pains.
The synergy savings ($200-300 Mil expected)will probably just pay off the debt, but when paid off they would have money for some much better dividend IMO.
I haven't read anything by analysts yet.
I bought with the idea that we should have at least 2 good quarters coming and announcements of new VLCC's being put into service every couple of months.
This 1st of year swoon by the market has really dragged all stocks.
Hopefully we can recover.

MEXICO CITY, Jan 28- Canadian miner Endeavour Silver Corp will reduce production of the precious metal this year by more than a quarter because of low prices, the company said in a statement on Thursday. Endeavour Silver projects that silver production this year will total between 4.9 and 5.3 million ounces, down by more than a quarter compared to 2015 output of 7.2 million ounces.
Silver prices have fallen more than 70 percent since hitting 2011 highs of nearly $50 an ounce. They stood at $14.24 an ounce on Thursday on the London Bullion Market Association's index.
The company operates three mines in Mexico, the world's biggest silver producer.
El Cubo would be affected the most as it will go into maintain mode by the 4th quarter.
Hopefully some othere swill do the same and create a shortage of supply.
I saw where some copper miners were cutting back...that will decrease silver supplies.
PANAMA CITY, Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior, S.A. (Bladex) (BLX), announced today a quarterly cash dividend of US$0.385 per share corresponding to the fourth quarter 2015.
The cash dividend was approved today by the Board of Directors and is payable February 23, 2016 to the Bank's stockholders as of the February 10, 2016 record date.
I wonder if the high yield had something to do with keep the dividend the same.
Hoppefully next time, they have always been ultra conservative.
