I really appreciate your optimism. However, don't count on IR. There is no way they could know if dividend will be cut or not (try picturing Clinton's press secretary, or even his cabinet trying to answer questions honestly). At this point, I'm not even sure if Doc knows if the dividend will be cut.
Seems to me the devidend was set higher than it needed to be in Q1 and Q2 for "politicial" reasons. Now they're stuck. They got a little mileage from it, then squandered it. If they have to adjust, the pain will be felt by all of us - for a while.
Don't get me wrong. I'm way long on this stock and will hold for a long time. There is just no reason to believe what they say at the moment. Not that they will lie to you, but they are in a state of denial, and the world has changed from when they first hatched this deal. Look for more changes.
