Assume they cut the dividend by 50%. Then would people be convinced that they have enough cash flow to cover their debt, dividend and Capex and continue to grow? If they have been able to give $1.00 for 5 years, surely, they can do it at half the rate right? Now at $0.50 the dividend would STILL yield 5-6%. So you get a growth stock with 5-6% dividend to boot.

Now let's say by their growth businesses execute as expected and they don't cut the dividend. You get 10%+ dividend with growth.

WIN-WIN situation.
