You peaked my interest again. Between April 07 and 08, the company shows a large increase in treasury stock. I assume the company used its cash to buy its own stock? But I also note a reduction of shareholder equity as of April 08.
On guess on continued payment of dividend on years of challenged earnings is the hope that next quarter the numbers will be better--in the meantime, keeping the shareholders who don't read the financial statements happy!!
Good to hear from you again Chicken. I assume you loaded your portfolio when the stock went to $18. I just eat at the local periodically. The cup of bean soup and cole slaw are the two best menu items!!! For my taste these are wonderful.
