I have 32 shares of O it dropped because of the anticipated switch from Capital one to Merrill edge but if the price is right i will buy more. In this case every cent counts and it does. this isnt a large raise, but they consistantly raise their dividend throughout the year. This will result in an increase of .192 cents a year nit much but ever raise counts and over time these raises add up.
