Dividends don't get paid until May, not in March. Where did you get that info? Look at the history of the company. The common stock doesn't pay on a normal quarterly dividend frequency. The preferred is due on April 2nd.
Even if it were true, the pps would go down by the amount of the dividend. You would be foolish to buy for the dividend. You should buy a stock for its ability to pay a dividend, that is, a company with dependable earnings.
I'm not sure if the obligation to pay out a dividend (because of REIT status) extends to a company that declares bankruptcy. I somehow doubt it.
151 million $ carried over from last year. This money is required to be paid as dividends since they were a REIT status last year. Depending on how fresh the btteries are in your calcualtor, that works out to a little over 4 bucks for the year. So each divi would be a little over a buck a common share.
