At the time of the purchase, Maggie Inc. had 100,000 shares outstanding. On July 31, 2018, Maggie declared and paid a dividend of \$1.50 per share. The closing price on Maggie’s stock on December 31, 2018, was \$13.50 per share. Ted sold all 10,000 shares of its Maggie’s Inc. stock on February 1, 2019, for \$15.50 per share.
