Well, your personal opinion denotes what lack of sense you have. If you have held this stock for 30 years you have received a total return for one third of your ownership period that is essentially the same as buying us treasury bonds. Not smart. You should not be happy you should be angry. All the whitle there is entrenched managment that keeps getting paid in spades. Your logic is similar to saying you have an employee who performed well for 20 years but then did nothing but screw you over, cost money, and took up too much of your time for the next ten years, but you are willing to overlook the last ten years because "he was a good employee" for the first 20. You fire him when he doesn't perform....by being an apologist for this company you perpetuate the idea the somehow "things are going to go back to the way they were in the good old days." And that ain't happening son. The global markets have changed.
