Hi,I was wondering if it is better to buy stocks before or after the dividend payout date?For example, I want to buy this stock call Babcock & Brown (FLY). It pays dividend on August 20th, 2008. Should I wait until after August 20th to buy it? Would the share price be cheaper after the company pay out it's dividends? I am not sure how dividend payout will affect the share price? If anyone could shed some light into this matter for me, much would be appreciated.Thanks,K
