    • weed: If the ex-date is 12/17 you should be able to buy on 12/14 (friday) and get the divy.

    • realornot: weed: u can pickup the divy but you will get an equal hit on your divy stock so u must stay long with that stock. Do your hmwk!

    • JayWright: Or get long now and there should be a runup in price up to exdiv date. Sell right before.

    • weed: real: I've given up trying to capture special divs. OM has taught me wait for the drops after the event.

    • realornot: weed: I don't play that divy game. It is unless a stock I really really like than I will pull my trigger. Best is buy them after they paid.

    • Ocean Man: Especially if it's in a taxed account. Why get taxed on that $38?
