    Pay the dividend

    Paying the dividend would extract more capital from the company and cause further erosion of the stock price. I'm all for it.

    On the other hand, not paying the dividend may trigger more sales from dividend oriented mutual funds. I'm all for that too.

    To me, the paying the dividend is a negligable matter to the overall situation.
