I doubt any divd increase. or they should not anyway. they are still running negative cash flow. they need someone to better "work" their balance sheet, ie cash mgmnt.
further, I thought amot had a share repurchase program. My memory my be faulty on that but my point is they have even more shares outstanding.
I dont think they were repurchasing share where they? Kind of disappointed in the revenue and earnings per share. Surprised they moved headquarters to Amherst NY, now right around the corner. Did the cc not sound like they were looking at a company or two to takeover? I would like to see less shares every quarter also not more dilution. My thought was 2 % dividend attracts a few more investors to hold up the share price.
nice that yahoo now lets me post again. don't know what the problem was before.
anyway I am surprised that they would move hdqtrs! right around the "coroner", huh?! I don't see how they can afford to buy anyone of significance to improve their rev/earnings. I thought with the inventory write-offs a while back, some facility consolidation they were dressing up amot for a sale.
I've invested for more years than I want to admit. And I've championed paying a divd. But looking back I cant recall a single stinking case that it helped the share price much at all. APPL and AMOT being recent examples. Its as if the big money gets their wish and moves on after a slight bump up in the share price.
