Ok so who ever has HPQ stock today is getting paid 53 cents per share in dividends, so why didn't the stock drop today? Will it be 53 cents lower in the morning?

Dividends are baked in, usually. They announce them prior to issuing them. And usually it's only paid to shareholders of record at a specific date.

HP paying dividends is not a new thing. They do it a lot.

Where did you get the 0.53/share. I'm seeing 0.132/share.

The big question is whether an HP play is a good contrarian move.

My bust I guess I was thinking of the yearly dividend, always trying to think positive I guess.
