of a penny or two, perhaps even 3 as some suggest, the stock still pays somewhere in the 15-19% dividend rate. A takeout for the buyer would be paying large dividend for that firm at anything less than $6 or $7.
I asked an experienced competitor in the area of the PLT assets, what they thought of the PLT assets. The reply was that they are a good solid, long lasting asset and that even though a cut may be necessary, a large one was likely not going to happen from his following of the situatiion. Rumour to be sure, but not far off in my view.
