I noticed this stock months ago (just before the drop that started the current upward trend). I saw that the company was paying out a dividend, but that they were apparently financing the divident payment with long term debt. I thought it looked fishy and stayed away, but now with the price recovered, I question my decision.Why would a company do that? I am staying away from this puppy, but it looks like other people think it's a winner from the exorbidant P/E of 50+ for a company with marginal growth. Maybe there's something I'm not seeing. Ideas anyone? Is the additional debt going to finance some huge growth that I don't know about, and if so, why wouldn't they take out less debt and not pay that $6 dividend?
