What do you mean a "give away"? The shareholders are the ones that own the company. If you want a dividend, buy some shares.
I agree with 'Bottomsup'. It's not a giveaway, it's a reward to shareholders. I may disagree with the international expansion, but I do appreciate the special divd to us shareholders.In fact, if they can continue to do a special divd every 2 years I'll be a happy stock owner. However, if Congress decides to raise the tax on dividends over a 15-20% level, I'd rather the company buy back stock instead of paying a divd. A buyback might help the stock PPS start climbing.
$1mil payout in lawsuit and lower earnings. How do you like them now?
Good for Mark Barnes and co.
