    Operational Cash Flow per share has declined

    cdiso,
    i don't really care one way or the other about this ticker.
    I only pointed out these operational cash flow statistics because i read a seeking alpha article under yahoo news that touted how this was a cash flow machine and that the dividend was stable. The article put a positive spin on the "statement of cash flow.". after reading the article I went and checked the numbers for myself and didn't see such attractive numbers, so i pointed out the numbers here with a little more transparency so that some mom and pop investor gets a better picture.
    looking at numbers is one thing, but you also need to mention how many shares are outstanding.
    the article talked about numbers from the past 5 years but failedto mention that shares outstanding increased significantly.

    my question is , how (why) did the number of shares outstanding go from 313 million (Q1 2010) to 998 million (Q2 2012)?
    again, i really don't care one way or the other. but i wasted my time reading the article so i figured i'd add what i learned so it wouldn't be a total waste of my time if i help someone else.

      A: WOW. You really haven't been following, or not. I mean, I'll reply, but not on a crazy comment such as this. FTR is going up imo.
