Recent Sell - Ensco plc (ESV)



On 25 February 2016 I Sold 155 shares of ESV at $7.63 per share minus commission.


24 February Ensco released its 4th quarter and full-year 2015 results. At the same time ESV announce to reduce its quarterly dividend from $0.15 to $0.01. This was the second time that the ESV announced dividend reduction in the last year and a half. Maybe I would have enough patience to wait for better times, if the dividend payment would only be suspended, but that 1 cent was mainly a joke!
