    Thank you Vladimir for posting the prospectus. Under the stated dividend policy the management announced the range of this quarters dividend to be between $.34 and $.36. They go on to say that had the additions to the fleet were included then the rate per share would be increased by 6.5% of the midpoint, or another $.02. The date of the prospectus was December 6th, so the estimate is pretty fresh, with not a whole lot of wiggle until year end. This represents an 11% yield, on todays close. Certainly not what most had hoped but still not shabby.
    I'm surprised Audio that you would take the time to post old fleet deployment numbers. I read your posts on other boards and repect your opinion. However, why not post the actual fleet deployment off the Diana web site which is updated as of today?
    If Diana has stated the quarter will be between .34 and .36 and that the additions will add .02 next quarter, then until they prove themselves wrong, I'll believe them.
