Alright, some hour ago I sold my 100 VOD at 30.20 per share and with the proceeds bought 80 more shares of AT&T at 37.52.
I was spending too much time riveted to the news around Vodafone, time that I should spend on doing physics. And I realized that a Verizon Vodafone deal would drag on and on for months. So I sacrificed a few dollars of loss and sold.
A long time ago I learned the lesson that "time is more valuable than money". And a painful mistake I made when buying VOD a few days ago, was that I did not full research when its dividend date was for Vodafone. It appears to have been last November and so I would likely not receive any dividend for almost a year hence. I know AT&T has a dividend every quarter (three months) so with those 80 shares, I know I will get a dividend for it, starting 1 August. So a little mistake by me, but that is life itself, full of mistakes, but overall a grand success.

More than 90 percent of AP's posts are missing in the Google newsgroups author search starting May 2012. They call it indexing; I call it censor discrimination. Whatever the case, what is needed now is for science newsgroups like sci.physics, sci.chem, sci.bio, sci.geo.geology, sci.med, sci.paleontology, sci.astro, sci.physics.electromag to?be hosted by a University the same as what Drexel?University hosts sci.math as the Math Forum. Science needs to be in education?not in the hands of corporations chasing after the next dollar bill.?Besides, Drexel's Math Forum can demand no fake names, and only 5 posts per day of all posters which reduces or eliminates most spam and hatespew, searchenginebombing, and front pagehogging. Drexel has?done a excellent, simple and fair author archiving of AP sci.math posts since May 2012?as seen?here:
