Ok, i just thought that i would post this in here because i'm gonna do it and if it works out then i will have doubled my money in 3 days time. If you are at all familiar with dividends, then you know that they pay out if you are a stock holder of record before the ex dividend date. In the past, i have normally not factored dividends into my investment strategy at all. After playing the last few swings in the market however, i have found that they can be a good way to mitigate loss. After doing some research this weekend to develop a decent dividend strategy, i just happened upon a stock that is paying a dividend HIGHER than its actual stock price as of close of market on Friday. The announcement was made on Friday and the window is very small compared to other dividend announcements. In essence this looks like a liquidation dividend due to the sale of the companies operating subsidiary. At the same time as the announcement they changed their ticker symbol and started trading OTC. The old symbol is KAZ. The new symbol is BMBM. The new symbol is already up higher than the old one, and i have a feeling that at open of market tomorrow, it may be even higher after the news of friday. The dividend payout is $1.04. BMBM is already at $1.12. If you get in tomorrow morning, that will probably be the best time. Of course the % profit is directly proportional to the purchase price of the stock. The ex date is October 5, so you have to be in by close of market Tuesday. Good luck to all. Here's the announcement of dividend in Market Watch.
