    • You still haven't answered these questions, huck, and neither have your buddies. "dividend per year" is now up to 72 cents That's almost 3x your "25 cents ... per year, maybe". So:

      1 - What makes you think that RAS dividend would shrink to 6.5 cents per quarter next year from RAS current 18 cent quarterly dividend? Be specific. What specific events are likely to initiate a catastrophic decline of that order?

      2 - What makes you think that RAS dividend won't rise to at least 25 cents by the end of next year? RAS could afford to pay 22 cents (Cash Available for Distribution to Common Shareholders or CAD) in 1Q and did new business in 1Q that could add as much as 8 cents a share to that on a quarterly basis gong forward?

      Bottom line: do you have the courage to back your innuendo with justifiable arguments or are you just spreading mud around trying to see if you can make some stick.

      Your "per year, maybe" remains ludicrously out of touch.

    • Remember, dreams sometimes come true.

    • The dividend is already 68 cents a year (and going higher, in my opinion).

      So here's some questions for you. Let's see if you have the courage to answer them:

      1 - What makes you think that RAS dividend would shrink to 6.5 cents per quarter next year from RAS current 17 cent dividend? Be specific. What specific events are likely to initiate a catastrophic decline of that order?

      2 - What makes you think that RAS dividend won't rise to at least 25 cents by the end of next year? RAS could afford to pay 22 cents (Cash Available for Distribution to Common Shareholders or CAD) in 1Q and did new business in 1Q that could add as much as 8 cents a share to that on a quarterly basis gong forward?

      Bottom line: do you have the courage to back your innuendo with justifiable arguments or are you just spreading mud around trying to see if you can make some stick.

      As I said, your "per year, maybe" is already demonstrably wrong ... and ludicrously so.
