The reason SVU is at an 8% dividend yield is because its price has dropped while its dividend remains flat. And this is a dividend in peril.

JCP followed a similar path and it just recently cut its dividend to zero.

The revenues of SVU have been dropping since 2009, as has its earnings per share. Retail grocery is an ultra-competative market that runs on thin margins in the best of times. But with SVU, marketshare is gradually being lost to the super discounters, like Walmart, Target, Costco and local super discounters. And a dividend cut in 2008 from .175 to .88, where it has remained since, is definitely not a good sign.
