Dividend Info for Huaneng Power Int. (HNP)

Does anyone know when HNP will pay its annual dividend and what the amount will be?

I have not been able to locate HNP's annual dividend amount nor date on the internet in advance of the payable date ever since I bought a position in HNP in 2005. Yesterday, wanting more transparency on something that I think is so basic as dividend dates, and HNP having risen well above the price at which I bought it, I sold it via Fidelity.

Logging into my Fidelity account, the site showed the transaction and also, within the transaction report and kind of strangely, displayed an ex-dividend date of June 18 (or thereabouts; can't remember at the moment). One can go to the "quote" section for HNP at the Fidelity site, and it still shows last year's ex-dividend and payable dates. I telephoned Fidelity and asked if Fidelity's staff knew the amount of the dividend. I was braced for seller's remorse and still am. The rep went to another department yada with more expertise in dividends. This department confirmed the ex dividend date and that the dividend was estimated to be between 21 and 31 cents. I asked if he was sure this was U.S. cents. He said he was. I remain doubtful. Except for 2009, the annual dividend has been over $1 per share since 2005.

The dividend machinations along with the foreign tax are enough that I remain pleased with the sale. Still, for education purposes I would welcome whatever insight others have on this.

Thank you. :)
FWIW, you sold at close to the 52 week high
I set a selling price of $28.00, good until cancelled, the day before yesterday, and it sold.

HNP's price rose over 10% in the last four weeks. I keep wondering whether I missed something and the price will keep rising in the coming weeks or there is some special dividend in the works.

Thanks again.
