This company really is mis managed badly. Too many good ole boy lodge budies costing to much money needs hedge hogs to clean out the lodge budies. Then Empire will show a profit. I recommend no bonus for top officers at empire this year. They are very arrogant and malicious towards the public and customers. And investors.
You would think with a handle of "Oldbillionaire" you would have a clue on how to invest. Did you buy in at the recent top? Give it a week let the dividend payment settle out, reload and ride the elevator up again. A 10% gain at $22.00 is better than a .25 dividend for the quarter. If it sells off from the top you are still in at 5%. This equity is not a get rich quick scheme so if you don't understand the game stay away. Nothing is wrong with management. It is your portfolio that has issues.
You may be old but I doubt you`re a billionaire. This is a small utility that had to suspend its dividend due to a tornado wiping out a lot of its customer base. A dividend has been reinstated but it`s not back to its pre-tornado level. I doubt you know a dam thing about the management.
