  • costco paid dividend yesterday 26 may has anyone had the dividend posted to ther stck account this morning. hasnt been posted to my scott trade account this morning. comments please.
  • Costco is a buy and hold don't worry about it stock. It will continue to outpace the S&P. Buying the stock as a trading stock is not wise. There are many stocks to trade, and Costco is not one of them. If you own it, you just sit on it and it will grow. If it drops, you buy more and continue to add to your position. I've done this for 8 years and it's served me well.
  • Great Earnings!
  • Grimmikins, old sock, old shoe.......you still "loving that drop" what with the $7 special dividend and the $3 rise today? C'mon, Grimmikins, if you're man enough to "do my wife", "do Fonz's wife" and who know how many more imaginary conquests, don't you think you'd be able to man up and let us know all about the $113 short of COST you claimed to have made but absolutely refuse to talk about? Nah, didn't think so. Sailor-suited, Mommy-moochin' sissy..............
  • Holding through earnings! Good luck to everyone.
  • Holding till earnings, hope it goes well
  • Finally Up
  • Dividend/EPS = %... Do we need to multiple the % to what values to know how earnings?
  • Sold 5/6 of my equity in this stock at the end of the day for some profit. Kind of nervous that this stock is going to perform the way Lowes did today.
  • Does anyone know the earning report will be before the bell or after the bell? Thank
  • I love that drop.
  • The stock just paid out 7.50 and its about down that much in price. Do you think the company which reported good April numbers will lay an egg on May 25 when it reports. Ipersonally think the earning will be good.
  • why is the stock down today? I thought ex date was 5/10
  • Here it is guys, and it is not BS:
    "The special dividend is payable on May 26 to shareholders of record on May 10. The aggregate payment will be about $3.1 billion, to be funded primarily through additional borrowing, Costco said. The company's regular quarterly cash dividend of 50 cents per share will also be payable on May 26 to shareholders of record on May 12. "
  • There are 2 dividend ex dates. today the 8th is the $7 day. you had to buy the stock yesterday to receive the dividend today. the stock is down $7 since the $7 dividend is subtracted from the actual stock price. If you buy today down #$%$ like getting the $7 dividend either way. you need to buy to buy by tomorrow the 9th to receive the .50 dividend on the 10th. the stock will drop .50 that day too. hope this helps clarify
  • If I'm correct, you can't buy today and get the special dividend, but you can still buy and get the regular dividend, correct?
  • Hey, where's my little Mommy-moochin', sailor-suited sissy? You know the one I mean, the one that claimed to have shorted COST at $113 but won't acknowledge it, talk about it, or man up. Oh well, I guess you have to be a man to man up.
  • Why would people sell today and miss the 7 buck special ? The stock for the special goes ex div on the 8th of MAy and the regular div goes ex on the 1o th of may.
  • Why are they paying out anything when their Current Ratio (mrq) is 0.93. For people that don't follow that measure it means their #$%$ liabilities are larger than their current assets. And that is before the dividend. That is a very strange move.
  • Costco intends to use the net proceeds from the offering and existing cash to pay the previously announced special cash dividend of approximately $3.1 billion or $7.00 per share and to repay at or prior to maturity all of its 1.125% Senior Notes due December 15, 2017 in an aggregate principal amount of $1.1 billion with associated prepayment costs. The special dividend is payable on May 26, 2017, to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 10, 2017. The offering is expected to close on May 18, 2017, subject to customary closing conditions.
