Agreed Zynder.. I've mentioned that before and would certainly catch the shorters off guard.. as far as the divi increase I don't think we'll hear of one until the March expiry of the NCIB.. it would be counter productive to the NCIB to have the stock jump on a divi increase, so I think management will wait that anniversary date out to get the best bang for their $100 million bucks they've mentioned commiting to the task by the end of this years NCIB on file.. JMHO
