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.

I assume you are correct that he meant to say "expect". I do not know if he is right or not, but I had noticed that the stock has been trending significantly upwards lately, and has been outdoing the market in the past few weeks.

Someone, somewhere, knows something....

Mar 28, 2012 0.195 Dividend
Dec 28, 2011 0.125 Dividend
It looks as if that prediction is correct.
As an owner of USB, I am pleased.
