    I've owned this stock on and off over the years. Talk about underperforming the group. "Retiring" at 56.... he should return all of his compensation. Replaced by "general counsel"..... god help anyone still in this stock. I know they recently announced that the dividend would be covered in "2 years". Get out when the momentum falters.

    Guess the market likes the change. Stock has been good to me but I bought lower when dividend cut looked possible. It has outperformed in the last few months. Distribution should be covered next year in 2014 and no dividend cut.
