I don't think that it's a stretch to argue that Progressive (PGR - Get Report) is due for a dividend decrease. For Progressive, dividends aren't set arbitrarily by management; instead, they're calculated based on the firm's financial performance. It's a good approach because it ensures that shareholders (and management) get compensated in kind with the firm's performance.
