What if LNCO:
Splits dividend to 50% cash and 50% additional stock. If you want all cash, you can sell the dividends in stock.
Increases dividend to 10%: 50% in cash and 50% in stock.
With a monthly dividend, this increases total dividend, but conserves cashflow.
I think the LNCO price would soar and the shorts would be caught in a short squeeze.
