I posted this on the Hot Hot Penny board. Please give me all your humble opinions please.
Hmmmmmm....looking at that share price right now: $1.87,...the share price has been shrinking back down again (towards $1.00). If that happens again $DRYS is going to have to do another R/S.
That last R/S at the beginning of 2017 nearly gave me PTSD....because the share price fell well below my buy price before the R/S.
If they do another R/S again.... OMG . This Dividend Plan better work....or the share price is going to keep on shrinking toward $1.00....again.
Just look at $DRYS Jan - Feb chart.
Talk about a 50/50 chance here.
