    Sorry Mr Dupree, you didn't do your due diligence.

    The company which had approximately 40 million shares, had a rights offering that expanded its outstanding shares to 60 million.

    Hence the change in dividend is NOT a reduction, but rather a re-calibration of the existing dividend based on the increased number of shares.

    This type of headline coming under the Motley Fool banner is dangerous in that it will mislead and thus reflects back on Motley Fool. publishing junk like this without checking details is not fiduciarily sound.
