    Agree - these fast ups and downs don't help.

    This would be bad IF it were true. EPS was +.45

    This has become a traders stock, not a dividend stock!
    Wall St. wins again!
    Retirees lose again!

    Is the dividend really worth taking a chance on?

    No. Not if it will take two to five years (their claim) for things to smooth out.

    Do the math. They showed a fairly sustainable .45c in a horrible climate. Pretend divvy gets cut to .50c/$2 year. Use rufustherat's $20 ( probably where I would sell Puts at ) = still a 10% div.

     

    Not great, some BDC's can beat, but it IS horrible now. So upside is probably better than BDC. Just saying, it could maybe be years but being paid 10% to wait is not horrible. The hard part is training yourself to not worry about the temporary price swings.

     

    I sold a chunk at a nice profit. I still own my least expensive shares and plan on keeping, but it IS a personal call and I have about 50 other companies that are mostly increasing divs. I believe the div will be close to bottom after the next cut because frankly I see the political climate will not allow the GDP to grow enough for interest rates to rise quickly. If you see it different, then Income is not worth it.

     

    It is still an Income stock if you ignore Wall St flippers. THEY are always temporary.

    I for one have sold 75% of this stock. Now it's a wait and see with a close Eye.

    The stock is still over priced, not worth more than $20 for sure

    Book is $25, why should it trade at no more than 80% of book?
