they lost over 95% of their capital in what was supposed to be a low risk strategy over-leveraged and lost 100's of millions in non-agency rmbs - got out of govt rmbs at the absolute lows of the market and still pay ceo over 2.5mm in 09 and board gets outrageous compensation
"Those with low board compensation and high shareholder return scored the best." DFR's price imploded in the last year, anyone who understands a chart can see that. board comp did not follow, so this methodology would punish DFR for that. however, cuts were made in other areas and the business model has changed.
despite what you lead people to believe with your fear-mongering, the article is mostly neutral or optimistic about about DFR's prospects.
nothing about DFR that appears in the article is really news to anyone that's followed or done research on this stock. they were a leveraged REIT, the bubble popped, and their value dropped. now they do something different, and they're out of mortgages. please remember that they actually made a profit last qtr w/ earnings/share of $7.85. sounds like a "disaster" to me.
