well, this was enough for me. my conscience bothered me anyway about holding ATU. i can no longer tolerate dirty money. enough to be made with other stock investments. the dividend is a joke and a gimmick done only to put ATU on investment community anti-radar. this is not a share holder friendly company. they are good only to themselves. now, even their high end management is cashing in leaving stock holders high and dry. the fat butt CEO Bobby A. the yacht boy sold off and now Andy L. dumped 100%. he is the CFO of the company. what does that tell us? i dumped all mine today at $37.85 PPS. will not be back. have copied the ATU report from theStreet analyst group...
