Recently I came upon "U.S. Bancorp (USB): Zacks Rank Buy" by Todd Bunton.
In this story he wrote "But it raised it [the dividend] to 12.5 cents in early 2011. I'd except another dividend hike in the first quarter of 2012."
-
The word "except" makes no sense; did Todd Bunton mean "accept"?.
More likely he meant ""expect"; so it's a case of dyslexia.
-
The last dividend declaration occurred on Dec 13, 2011. So we shall have to wait until March 13 to find out whether or not Mr. Bunton was right.
