    Loss today, not a big deal.

    Seeking alpha has transcript. Management didn't mention any specific number for dividend. Also, management never implies there will be another buyback program. Currently, specific number of dividend and another buyback program are just speculation.

    • It sounds like folks are right to expect some good news in the form of a dividend announcement soon. Given that no amount was stated in the conference call, it'll definitely have a positive impact on share price whenever it's announced.

      From the transcript:

      Now shareholder value initiatives, we reiterate to believe that a dividend once initiated should be sustainable over the long term. Previously our preferred method of declaring or remitting dividend was to declare an annual dividend soon after the annual filing of 20th.

      But we are changing our minds largely due to investor feedback. We now intend to declare remit dividends on a quarterly basis, we will not wait till the 20th as filed to do so although we are not prepared to make a definitive announcement on dividend at this time. There will be a separate dividend announcement in the next weeks. So please stay tuned for that separate announcement in the next few weeks.

    • Thanks for the heads up. I'll sniff the transcript, then maybe we can share notes.
