  •  Quick Walmart math: (0+ / 0-)

    Assuming the Walmart dividend payout total is 1.34B as per the linked article from the diary, and the Walton heirs own approx 50% of the company, they will save anywhere from 58 to 162 Million between them by moving up the payout date, on an estimated payment of 660M.
       Before you go feeling sorry for them, the will get at least 398Million to split, which would easily keep them all happy and healthy for the rest of their lives.  Then, they'll get their next dividend payout, probably bigger from the holiday season, in March.  And so on, 4 times every year. Forever.
