If I am reading the 10Q correctly, dividends are suspended for the rest of 2011, but expect to be reinstated in 2012?Are these dividends considered deferred and will be paid in 2012, or are they just gone forever?
Gone forever. They would be made up if they were cumulative, as many preferred dividends are, but common dividends are not cumulative.
Your next deposit will be March 15, 2012 Maybe an end of year 2011 special div but that's a long shot.
According to a May 25 press release. After a 2 quarter suspension the div. is expected to return at a rate of $.25
"Are these dividends considered deferred..."Anybody asking that question shouldn't be holding dividend paying stocks for income.
