This is when it hurts the most – Div Yields go from 4-5% to as low as 1% and for a Div. paying company this is most surprising since the once upon a time company is no longer priced where one can accumulate from the dividend, and it’s PE goes above everything it was ever meant to for that particular year. Speculators take control and then the long term investor has to wait and wait for the price to be accurate – which might take a few months or years. Eventually, when the prices are accurate it makes no sense.
