If they stop, the div are cumulative. You'll get a check for all that have not been paid when they start up again. that's what happened last time, and I expect nothing different this time.
It probably will happen if this last more than another 5 months with the pricing of oil. I'm thankful most of what they are doing now is NG.
You know they still are paying the div. on the preferred shares. They stopped paying last time for about 6 months I think it was. When they stop paying the div, I'd think it was time to start to be concerned. Till then it won't be going up till this game of cat and mouse is over with OPEC.
Current #$%$ WPZ $3.72 do the math. OH YEA! you will also have 14 LESS shares per 100 of stock to get a div on. So let me do the math for you. 3.65-3.72= -.07 less per share. 86 x .07= 6.02
14 x 3.72= 52.08 you won't get because you hold less shares.
6.02+52.08= $58.10 less per 100 shares.
