why would they announce a dividend when the are still underwater, are having issues restructuring debt on overpriced assets and clearly could careless if their stock was $4. They get paid either way and I can guarantee you they will take any money they have in the next year or two or three and put it into toxic assets that will appreciate over time OZM and BX are in a completely different place than fig with a much better balance sheet..not saying they will not recover...but they are not concerned nor are their $5 secondary investors in the short term. They will hold for many years to maximize their returns
thats true...but that was before BX & OZM announced a dividend. Where would you park your money?
I like FIG and I totally think it has the potential to have a better roi than BX or OZM, but announcing a dividend would deliver the goods.
