    Is the dividend safe?

    No. The dividend is NOT safe.

    During the US banking crisis, all the banks that received TARP funds were required to suspend their dividend payments.

    If building up capital is the goal, then cutting the outflow of capital is part of the process.

    Why would the EU act in another way? Especially with a bank that has stockholders all over the planet. It's unreasonable to expect the EU to beef up STD's capital base while the bank continues to spew its 17% yield (based on the current dividend and stock price).

    Look for a cut to ZERO for a while -- just like BP after the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
