    Asphalt prices

    That would be a fair assumption. However, if you look at the January price of asphalt binder $550-590/ton it is still near an all-time high. In 2007-2008 it was below $300/ton.

    This environment still looks ugly for Gencor, Astec, Sterling and other highway related companies.

    The executives own 30% of the stock. If they wanted to pay out a special dividend of say $5/share, they would benefit the most. It would be about a $15 million payday, which would be taxed at long-term cap gains. This dwarfs the paychecks they receive taxed at ordinary income.
