Perhaps Owens 132000 is one of those stakeholders who has realized/unrealized losses regarding this holding. If so, I can understand his fustration. Over a 50% loss in the stock price in one year. 40% cut in the dividend from June 2010, a significant loss for those who have held this stock as an investment as a means to fund their cash flow requirements in retirement.
I too as well fall in that catergory. (realized) and I recently came back and made a small investment. The question I pose is this, can anyone tell me where can one invest and receive a 9.8% return without taking substantial RISK? FTR is worth a look see if one does not commit more than 5% of their available investment dollars.
If the CEO did indeed in fact purchase this many shares, at this current price point, well wouldn't you if you were the CEO?
