Have u ever wondered why this was a $100 stock? How about what the #$%$ happened that it needed to do a 1 to 10 reverse split. If not for the reverse split this is a $0.71 stock right now. This would have been delisted long time ago.
Anyhow, of course they need SPO to raise capital. How else will they do it when they pass out 90% of their profits to us. My view SPO is fine when they can maintain their dividends. That indicates that they are getting a nice return with their investments.
