    AFFO and dividend: question to the board

    What is the relationship between AFFO and dividend? I understand dividend is about taxable income (90%). How to explain the fact that AFFO of NRF is 1.71 but the dividend was less than half? was it just because of taxable loss carry over? or there were some other things? In theory can dividend be roughly 90% of AFFO if there is no carryover?
    In the case of carryover, how long is NRF going to take to use them all?
    NRF is getting below 8%. There are so many other higher dividend stocks out there. But the pps seems to be ignoring gravity? Not sure if we should take some profit. if NRF has the intrinsic capability of paying out, say 1.5/year, then we should definitely hold. On the other hand there was no insider buy recently.
    I hopw someone can be nice to answer such "naive" questions? Thanks in advance.
