I really want to thank all the shorters and swing traders who keep crashing this stock. You guys are great, you'd shove your grandmother in front of a bus if there were the slightest profit in it for you. IMHO I believe ARR is making good business decisions except for one. They went from a quarterly dividend to a monthly. This creates more volatility in the stock price as the runup to ex-date grows closer and the cool off after. Seems too many traders like to pick at the low hanging fruit then chop down the tree. This is a great dividend stock that has been turned into a yo-yo whose string is stretching to the breaking point. ARR isn't doing anything to hurt their stock price. You guys are. Good luck.
Am I reading this true? on the summary it said EPS (ttm): -0.15 ? and p/e = n/a does that mean the stock has lost .15 per share? before they pay any dividend? Did i read that correctly? Is this why the stock is going down?
I would expect a monthly payer to have less volatility because the div cycle is shorter. As to our stockholders, we miss having a greater managerial and institutional participation. I have held this stock for a long time but it turned out to be a disappointment. The pps used to be in the 8's,last year in the 7's and this year in the 6's. Even with the great dividend I am not sure I break even,especially after taxes. Anyway good luck to all.
No doubt that ARR did start a downward slide when they went to monthly payments for their quarterly div. But this is a causual relationship. If you notice ARR does tend to bounce back month after month from the div payment but what it doesn't bounce back from is the SPOs! They have gone somewhere from $1B to $6B over the last year with SPOs, so the SPOs are not all bad, just the timining and frequency that is killing ARR.
