Well, Did you see the announcement about the $8/share dividend for holders of record 2/28 and payable on 3/5.

I just jumped in today on the 6% gain in price. I think more than one person was looking to grab that dividend.

How long do I have to hold the stock after the dividend is paid? I am managing my 401K portfolio, so I am asuming that tax wise I should be insulated. I am sure I am missing something.

Any comments?
