just keep DRIP-ing, boring stock. stay in the 17 range so i get nice cheap shares added every QTR. thanks ORI.
There are always a few dummies who don't pay attention and will sell on this big move ... and then I will buy some more :)
The call should be interesting. That is a very positive number. This always moves slowly, but I am thinking that 20 is going to be a reality not too far down the road. Safe divvy too.
I believe it should be in that range too. That is why I have been accumulating this dividend beauty.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I was hoping they would round it to 19, but I will take the penny increase and smile all the way to the bank :) 75 straight years of dividends is a cumulative record matched by very few.
Timing this pullback might be difficult. Several factors (tech, fed, fuel) seem to be complicating the picture. No party horns and confetti for earnings, but no reason to be fearful either. I will start to add incrementally if/when we pass below 17. JMO
It has been a penny the past couple of years. I would guess it might be that again, although .02 wouldn't be irrational. Board holds a lot of shares.
