    Can MCY maintain the dividend?

    Why would they have $3 billion in cash? From looking at the financials, most of that is in debt instruments. Seems risky to me, considering all the debt problems that country, states, and municipalites are facing. When yields on debt instruments are eventually forced higher to better compensate investors, the portfolio will most likely take a hit.
