Do you really think 9 cents makes a difference when you are already up 50 to 70% on a short? Moreover, last ex-dividend fell 24% the next day.
Whether or not this massive short conspiracy is even true, the fact is that retail can't compete with them. If they want to drive this thing down further, they will. The dividend is, and always has been, immaterial.
I appreciate your continued hope and perceverence in PSN's rise back to some mid-tier company, but the fact is that any dollar in PSN is a dollar that could be somewhere a heck of a lot less risky. This stock is a coin toss.
