They will NEVER pay another dividend. Best case is that they do a merger and offer preferred holders 5- 10 cents on the dollar.

Ignore The Nuisance Lawsuits And Take The Safe 11.7% Yield From Resource Capital Preferred Stock C
Oct 27 2:46 PM (Updated on Oct 27 3:11 PM)•RSO•Comment!
Disclosure: I am/we are long RSO, RSO-PC. (More...)
RSO-PC now yields 11.7% and the preferred dividend coverage is 4.3X.
RSO preferred issues have lagged the rally in the common stock and bond issues.
The preferred stock sell off appears related to class action lawsuit headlines.
Even using a worst case scenario, class action lawsuits are not material to preferred holders.

The Panick Value Research Report is available in the "Dividends" section of the Seeking Alpha Marketplace if you'd like an advance look at the article. Article will be made public next week. Article includes yield to maturity calculations for RFTA and RFT. I think RFTA is mis-priced relative to the preferred issues and RFT.

GDPAN is equal in seniority to GDP-PC and GDP-PD. The company can't convert it to common unless GDP skyrockets. GDPAN holders can convert it to common. None of the preferred shares would do well in bankruptcy. GDP just knocked off some debt with a swap for new debt at 50 cents on the dollar. No guarantees, but that kind of swap reduces debt and makes a bankruptcy less likely.
The first 3 major problems with your "analysis" of the financials are:
1. You omitted the preferred stock from your calculations which is senior to the common.
2. The 250 million credit line is a meaningless number. What's meaningful is the far smaller actually available borrowing base which is currently overdrawn and the bank is forcing them to liquidate assets.
3. The asset values are based on higher commodity prices.
Maybe they will survive, but it's doubtful given recent events.
Robert, I realize its a complex situation. However the original poser gave a very incorrect and misleading presentation of the "facts". I'm sure you are well aware that claims are paid at the operating company level - not the holding co. The poster implied that their tiny holding co capital was the only capital cushion available to pay claims.
I think you are comparing Apples to Oranges to Grapes. Mortality risk is paid from regulatory capital. Regulatory capital is not the same as holding company book value. Holding co book value is net of debt (PFX). So your analysis is completely wrong, but other than that it was an interesting post.
Both and preferred and common are speculative, but anyone wanting to play this should consider the preferred instead of the common. They may keep paying the preferred dividend and it has some pretty good covenants.

Okay. With respect to the preferred, can you give us some insight into how much coverage you would anticipate on the preferred for the balance of '15 and may be looking into '16?
Kristian Kos - Chairman & CEO
It looks as if from our guidance that we provided that we would have in excess of probably one to two times covered on the preferred and that allows us, they are possibly in excess of that or were higher than that. So really from our vantage point at present, when we looked at our forecast on cash flow and where we stand today in the common units that are outstanding and the distribution we have been paying to the common units in the preceding quarters, in the prior quarters. We understand that preferred has an outstanding amount that is locked in place and we're adamant on paying. We understand that we have to find a value proposition to preserve an increased value of our common equity. We understand also that we're in this litigation and it's damaging to our cash flow and the market at large is very, very tough place at present for services.
We've got still the drilled uncompleted backlogs is affecting business, the rig count has found a bottom it would seem, but that does not mean it has rebounded or there is sort of an uptick. And so all of these we took into consideration and want to preserve the payments to the preferred and want to make sure that we focus on finding a long-term strategic path to unlock the value of the common equity of which we've discussed monetizing or separating in some form or fashion the OFS business to unlock and preserve that value.
So that's a net answer. We feel that there is strong coverage in our cash flow to the preferred and that we're working hard to unlock the value to our common equity and then eventually, once we've unlocked that value bring the distribution back online.
It's pointless trying to reason with the "greens". There is no data that will change their minds. Temperatures have been statistically flat for 18 years and now some say that they won't change their mind unless temperatures are flat for another 50 years. We'll all be dead by then.
You have it backwards. They just closed a new 16 million credit line. They were nearly out of cash before that.
MILL common and preferred shares plummeting. Apollo may be taking a haircut on this one and will probably have to put up more cash for DIP financing,
See filing out this morning from MILL. Looks like they will be filing bankruptcy soon. Apollo carrying the loan at 90% of par. Might be a big write-off coming soon there.
You have it exactly backwards. The Pilgrims started off with a Communist system and nearly starved to death.. They realized this wasn't working and assigned individual land plots to families instead of one communal plot. Production soared after communism was scrapped in favor of capitalism (as it always does).
