    Using 2007 's annual figure's, how

    I don't know here, looking at Yahoo's cash flow statement I see cash flow from operations for 2007 is 83.6 mil. This is not enough to cover the 107 million dividend. Looking further down the statement in financial operations: I see stock sales for 120 million this would put them over the top to pay off financings and the dividend. It appears to me NAT is diluting itself to pay the dividend. This is not good. Where is the substantial cash flow to pay this substantial dividend? Show me what I am missing. If what I see is true, NAT may not be a good investment because the dividend isn't covered by cash flow.
