Yes most of you hamthumbs did read my post wrong, it was total return YTD. And another thing this stock has given its shareholders about an 20% of dividends as non taxable return of capital. Most likely to see a cut in dividend with NFI to establish a consistent policy to show analysts, and investment bankers they can consistently grow divvy over time. What analysts cover this stock? will keep payout low in the mid 70% to keep up with FFO growth or the more important FAD calculation. REITS are not growth stocks, but they will occasionally act that way.
Don't know how you come up with a 59% yield, according to Yahoo the yield is 5.60%, stock price is $35.73. Last 3 dividends were $.50 and one prior to those was $.48 for a total of $1.98 for the last 4 quarters.
