    • losbronces: They just moved the Q1 2013 divi up in response to the expected tax increase in the U.S. From $SDRL: http://bit.ly/YN0c6H

    • Tom in Texas: For shareholder tax reasons. They moved up their Mar. 2013 dividend and both went ex-div. today.

    • sethmcs: The stock did not move to the downside ex dividend. Very disappointed.
