There's your problem, and I assume what many investors are doing and that is setting the fundamentals aside. I have been invested in this stock for a couple years now, unfortunately getting in for the first time back when it was over $5 a share, and have averaged down while collecting the divy. You are correct in most stocks with such a high dividend getting beaten into the ground, however, looking at the financials of those company's their was reason for them to be slaughtered. Overall, Chorus has had a very strong year, and hopefully the arb ruling will come out soon to put ease to many investors minds. Do your own dd, but based on their financials I think the divy is safe for the time being and if that is the case we should see the share price continue to slowly rise.Cheers,Schmiddy>
