Overall the Management Team is young and inexperienced. No past performance record in the current Economic conditions and hence the 20-1 reverse Stock split to make a failing operation appear solvent.

It's dangerous to put a down thumb on a stock with a 20% yield that has a decent dividend history. But I just cannot help it in this case. The dividend has been cut back to $0.375 per quarter, which is the lowest quarterly dividend I can find back to 2011. They just have way too much debt. I understand this is set up to be a highly levered firm, but I just cannot get behind a firm with this much leverage, and reducing dividends. The only reason someone would buy this is for the yield so when that yield starts to drop, look out.

Their current ROE is NEGATIVE (17%) and the last 3 quarters are all showing negative net income. I expect this dividend cut won't be the last and it wouldn't surprise me if they went under completely or they were purchased at a massively discounted price. I think this is extremely dangerous long or short, so will not be playing with this one with real money (do your own DD before trading any position).
