I have quite a bit of samp shares and my mid term target is 280 and long term target is 300.

After the scrip is issued price will come down by at least 10-15 bucks. So hopefully by the tym scrip and cash dividend is issued price will settle around 265 level.

What i predict is by the tym scrip is issued price will come down to 265 level from 275 level And after the cash dividend is issued price will come down to 260 level. From there price will slowly start to appreciate to 280 level within the yr and reach 300 level with the announcement of next yr dividend.

As per FT analysis the relative strength is in overbought range which indicates the slow movement of buying pattern. But the forecast still signals to buy as SAMP is still in outperforming stage. Last three days SAMP is in most active shares list.
