Capital PIG Who unloads crap like this on their clients? Did GS call you up and tell you this looks good? Did you sign an arbitration agreement? Of course you did or they wouldn't run your trade. Like going to Vegas. How do you think they build those crazy hotels.
lots of companies have big yields right before they go bankrupt - if you look at large div companies in the past - at least higher than the short term no risk rate - you will see they are actually high risk companies look at wm wb and wfc that come to mind if they were running at 15% reserves before the real estate market tanked then where do they stand now considering their leverage? if you want more risk go with a ms gs or leh i would add bsc in there but that one already crashed and burned run through the numbers and you may decide you should sell it and buy something else with alot less risk at least keep your retirement money out of this one if you want to gamble i guess this one is just as good as the next debt laden low margin business
do dividends matter? that is another question entirely
