Smart people paying attention cause the price to drop when the stock goes ex-dividend, by the amount of the dividend. In fact, that is so normal that it is considered "unchanged".It wouldn't surprise me if people who are stupid and/or inattentive cause a second price drop when the dividend is paid. If so, that's a buying opportunity.warrl,OK you got the rec but you don't even have to be all that smart or paying attention anymore as Forbes sends you a reminder that shows up on my watch list on Yahoo. Generally I find Yahoo pretty crappy with all sorts of data errors compared to Google finance but it is better for stock related news. There are some interesting cliches that amuse, while Yahoo.ca weeds out the French language releases by Canuck companies, Yahoo.com leaves them in. Yahoo.com also shows news articles for symbols that match, for instance I get Boeing (BA) news under Bell Aliant (BA.to). How else would I know that the Pentagon has grounded the F-35B (Marine Corp version)? }};-DTim http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=BA.TO http://www.forbes.com/sites/dividendchannel/2012/12/26/penn-...http://www.forbes.com/sites/dividendchannel/2013/01/07/cash-...http://www.forbes.com/sites/dividendchannel/2012/12/31/cash-...
