a company won't repond to E-Mails or return phone calls from stock holders like EGLE is doing. There has to be somethinmg else going on other than Citi downgrade. No divi announcement really bothers me, it it comes out is lowered this stock will really dive. I will be happy to sit on the side lines for awhile and see what is going on. I have been down this road with some other stocks in the past and it's not a pretty picture.
Many companies do not bother to respond to shareholder e mails. So, I would attach no significance at all to the fact that they declined to write back on your three questions.
As to the dividend, there is no obligation of a company to move forward its date of dividend announcement just because a shareholder gets antsy. They projected their dividend already and said they would announce in February. So, it would be wise not to get antsy over them being "late" until it is, say, mid February.
You are getting all worked up about a month too soon. Of course, that is your prerogative.
But let's just let the company do its business, which it seems to be doing quite well, no matter what Kartoonis says at CitiGroup.
