A Tough Last Thursday For iHeart, Beasley.

It was a difficult trading session for iHeartMedia , as its shares sank nearly immediately after the Opening Bell and finished down 10 cents, to $1.11. Why? It could be a Dec. 21 report from S&P Global Ratings that calls iHeart's capital structure "unsustainable," the Tampa Bay Business Journal reports.

Meanwhile, Beasley Broadcast Group slid 75 cents, to $5.85. Volume was roughly 7.5 times higher than average.

Why? It's unclear.

However, BBGI shares on Wednesday began trading ex-dividend. A cash dividend payment of $0.045 per share is scheduled to be paid on Jan. 06, 2017, and shareholders who purchased BBGI prior to the ex-dividend date are eligible for the cash dividend payment. This marks the 13th quarter that BBGI has paid the same dividend.
