What sort of logic is div cuts are usually at least 50? The answer is you don't want to have to soon go back and cut again. You want to leave the impression that soon things will be getting better. You must be an investing tyro not to know that. Keep at it. Myself, I can't believe that I am still in this piece of expletive. It makes me think that I am getting senile.
Um no. Companies do not have arbitrary cuts of 50% just because its some magic number that is tradition of the market. They base it upon ability to pay from their financials. If that is a 25% cut fine or a 75% cut fine but it varies from company to company. The only thing you have been accurate about is your senile comment.
