Advocat dividend will beat the cliff

File this under "Because you just never know..."

The board of nursing home chain Advocat has voted to move forward the record and payout dates for the company's fourth-quarter dividend.

Advocat class action dismissed

A putative class action against the board of Advocat was dismissed from District Court earlier this month on procedural grounds, specifically because it did not satisfy the federal case requirement that the claim involved was for more than $75,000. But that doesn't mean the case, which centers on the buyout approach made by the Covington Investments group that owns about 15 percent of Advocat, is over: The plaintiffs can refile in state court if they choose.
