Duh?? As the price of a stock goes higher the dividend will always shrink if it isnt increased. Thats percentage wise of course!! If a stock trades at 8 bucks and pays 80 cents you are receiving 10 percent. If the price of the stock doubles to 16 and the dividend remains 80 cents you only are getting guess?? right 5 percent.
I think the guy means that the dividend was higher than it is now. Are you always this impolite? Get some manners you clown! It was just a simple question-if you don't know the answer-shut up and let someone else answer it. Don't be a smart aleck! Obviously the price has gone up-has the dividend in the last year been lowered?
