    VOD just got the next dividend from Verizon Wireless. Shot up to $27.40 (+3.8%) AH when the news hit. I just bought for $26.45 (+0.2%) AH.

    • Ocean Man: Stock is down 12% from August, when it was trading over $30. Great company, great yield. The 8% yield you usually see quoted doesn't

    • Ocean Man: include the special div from Verizon Wireless last year. Correct me if I'm wrong long-time VOD holders. I thought that was paid separately

    • Ocean Man: in January last year. Stock has bounced twice from this $26.25 level to back over $28 twice in the past year.

    • Energysystems: Yep, special divvy of .64(if I remember correctly) was paid along with the normal divi, but listed as a special divi.

    • Energysystems: pissed I didn't double down, got caught up doing stuff. But I'm glad to see that special divi once again.
