In my personal investing account, GAIN paid their December special dividend. I received $177.84. I used the Dividend Reinvestment Program, or DRIP, function to automatically purchase $177.84 worth of shares of GAIN. This came to 17.7804 shares at $10.00 for $177.84.
I manually calculated my special dividend to be $177.90, so I felt a little short, you know, six cents. However, on December 12, 2018, I received a dividend payment of 6 cents and I have no idea why.
Additionally, i thought it was pretty cool that they reinvested at $10.00, but for your knowledge, it was $10.002
