    question on div?

    in reading financials clct made .20 per share and paid out .325 per share where do they make up the difference? (and this seems not to be a one quarter thing but for a long time.) also are the dividend reported as regular dividend or roc and something else?

    • I found one answer on the ROC on the company web site. but I have another my broker (etrade) list clct as 100% margin I.E. not margin able,... is this true on other brokerages?

    • 15c-20c every qtr of expenses is non-cash (stock based compensation, amortization, depreciation, discontinued operations). So GAAP EPS needs to be around 17c to break even. Watch cash flow, not EPS. They would have generated cash last qtr were it not for starting up a new Chinese subsidiary. This is their "slow" season. The best qtr is next qtr, followed by the qtr after that.

      I am buyer at $14.
