Looking at the universe of stocks we cover at Dividend Channel, on 8/30/16, Whitestone REIT will trade ex-dividend, for its monthly dividend of $0.095, payable on 9/9/16. As a percentage of WSR's recent stock price of $14.85, this dividend works out to approximately 0.64%, so look for shares of Whitestone REIT to trade 0.64% lower — all else being equal — when WSR shares open for trading on 8/30/16.
The Redstone family may still reject a deal, but Viacom's cash is falling and studio losses could mushroom.
The most recent short interest data has been released for the 08/15/2016 settlement date, and we here at Dividend Channel like to sift through this fresh data and order the underlying components of the S&P 500 by "days to cover." There are a number of ways to look at short data, for example the total number of shares short; but one metric that we find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares typically traded. The number of shares short is then compared to the average daily volume, in order to calculate the total number of trading days it would take to close out all of the open short positions if every share traded represented a short position being closed.
