Once again you are WRONG. Dividends are NOT being paid out of TOTAL Cash flow they are being paid from Operating Activities. No borrowed money and nothing from the sale of stock. I misjudged you before, you must have a purpose behind these postings; your not uninformed so it must be that your attempting to drive the price of DSX stock down. Trying to do it on a Message Board if not going to be a very effective.
I submit the number once again, although I now know that you do not care because they don't help your agenda.
FOR THE YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31,----------2007-----2006-----2005
Net Cash provided by Operating Activities--148,959--82,370--69,256
Common Stock Dividends Paid----------------131,044---73,578---57,400
I am the last one to critisize those who talk down to people. But PLEASE, learn something that this board is trying PATIENTLY to teach u. dont hammer and dont reinforce ignorance with false pride.
If u still dont know something, place your concern in form of a Question instead of BLUNT and Erroneous statement. The board, again will help u understand. It will not stear u wrong!
PS This board was v helpful in aswering several of my questions
