    Its highly unusual AFG keeps dropping like a rock despite a tremendous P/E ratio of 6(!!!) and Earnings Per Share of $21.88. Must be a classic case of guilt by association with Retail stocks.

    Just bought this stock a week ago. Looks like a solid company

    This is going to look really ugly when it goes ex-dividend, which I think we'll see tomorrow morning. No worries though, this is fairly valued and will eventually fill the gap.

    This stock just keeps on giving. Good report, another special dividend! Wow, the dividend was a surprise. A ray of sunshine in an otherwise gloomy year.

    Wouldn’t you be regarded as a clown if you sold today?

    Buy and never sell. This company is extremely well managed. Pay attention to what the management and executives do. Vito, the gc, bought shares just under $100 bc he knew this sale would go through. The company is owned by a family that controls about 40% of the outstanding shares. It is their cash generating machine and they frequently pay special dividends, usually at least once per year. They are worth many billions and you should own this company LONG TERM!

    Why is more than dividend income falling? How long does it take to recover?

    It’s once again time to pop the champ and celebrate another profitable year! That kind you to the management team for staying focused, providing value, and returning excess capital to the shareholders! Cheers!!

    Why sell off on dividend announcement? Looks like it was in line with what was expected to me.

    Anyone else buying this company? Good dividend track record, good liquidity, bought back shares after the drop, and trading at a relatively good discount. Post-COVID, this should be set to increase in value, and reinstate the special dividend.

    Question. Will the special dividend automatically buy additional shares?

    Well that's not an insignificant jump in price on the heels of yesterday's announcements. YTD this stock is in my top 3 performing holdings. It has more than made up from the slow price recovery from the pandemic. Good news keeps coming.

    I can't believe with the great quarterly dividend along with the special dividend people are not flocking to this stock?

    $2 special dividend during a pandemic—aside from regular quarterly dividends & buying back shares. Fantastic company.
