  1. Why don't they announce these at noon, so there is some liquidity in the markets for their shareholders to trade?
  2. If you're a *real* shareholder, why would you trade? That's what they're thinkin'!:D
  3. Also you want to have your buddies get in right before the market and then announce it so all the hypoe builds up and Cramer starts throwing chairs and screaming "Mon' back BEEP BEEP BEEP" and then tomorrow surges higher and then your friends take a nice profit :) Look for volume spikes before the announcement.
  4. Seemed to be a nice day for dividend increases. PFE got one - amd a nice percentage gain. Not enough time for BA, though.
