So rockymt, then whats your problem? if you own the stock, sell it. if you don't own it, then don't consider buying it. But, your opinion is certainly valued in the same esteem as everyone else here. Good luck to you, and you might want to look at the following. GTY, SNH, NNN, PEG, and VOD. A few of the ones I own that have been paying dividends for years. And they all have dividend re-invest programs.
