Just Energy Sets July Dividend

Natural gas and electricity retailer Just Energy (NYSE: JE  ) announced yesterday its monthly July dividend of $0.07 Canadian per share, the same rate it's paid for the past three months after cutting the payout 32% from $0.10333 Canadian per share in April.

The board of directors said the dividend is payable on July 31 to the holders of record at the close of business on July 15. The energy retailer has made monthly payouts to investors under its current organization since 2011, but has been paying dividends to investors since 1997. The dividend is designated as an "eligible dividend" for Canadian income tax purposes.

Just Energy also notes that for U.S. and Canadian investors that own a minimum of 100 shares, they can avail themselves of the company's dividend reinvestment and share purchase plan.

It also said that as of June 30, the conversion price for each $1,000 Canadian of its outstanding 6% convertible unsecured subordinated debenture that it issued on Oct. 2, 2007, has been adjusted in accordance with the trust indenture dated Dec. 2, 2007, to $25.04 Canadian convertible into 39.94 common shares of Just Energy.

The regular dividend payment equates to an $0.84 Canadian per share annual dividend, yielding 14.4% based on the closing price of Just Energy's stock on July 2.

    Look at their cash flow statements for 3/31/13 and prior. They're borrowing money to pay the dividends. You've got to be nuts to buy this p.os.
