Worry-wart investors on these message boards always think that if the stock price goes down then There Must Be Something Wrong With It That Everyone Except Me Knows About.
Stock prices go down because people want to sell the stock, and people want to sell a stock for many reason other than There's Something Wrong With It. For example: - massive hedge fund redemptions - starving people liquidating their 401ks to buy food - panic - stupidity - panic and stupidity combined - fear - fear and panic combined - fear, panic and stupidity combined
Confession of a worry-wort investor: "Dividend reduction" is my middle name. Just about every dividend paying stock I own has reduced or eliminated the payout. I feel like William Macy in "The Cooler" (not a bad film, Maria Bello looked hot, but could stand to lose a little weight). LINE and FTR are the only stocks I own that have maintained their payout. My paranoia is justified.
Because the next distribution is several months away.
Look at the last 6 months - in a dropping market the stock falls when the distribution isn't close ... then drives upward either with publicity from a positive article like that in Barrons OR in the few weeks just before the distribution.
