Arbor Realty Trust Eliminates Q4 Dividend – Remaining Shareholders Fleeing Without Looking Back

 “Shouldn’t we get the woman and children into the life boats Capitan?”… “Yes…Woman and Children first…”

“Shouldn’t we get the woman and children into the life boats Capitan?”… “Yes…Woman and Children first…”

New York Stock Exchange traded REIT Arbor Realty Trust (ABR) will not pay a dividend to its shareholders for Q4 ’08.

Keep in mind that, by law, a REIT must pay out 95% of all earnings in-order-to retain its status as a REIT and the tax benefits that come along with it. So if they are not paying a dividend it means that they are not making any money…

Investors buy REITs for income. Owning a REIT that pays no income is like owning a cow that doesn’t give milk; there’s really no point to it.
