Management chose to transfer income to shareholders via dividend instead of stock appreciation
Comcast does have sucky Customer Service. I had an appointment for a Cable Tech to come out and no one ever showed up! That was just one problem. It makes me think they are on a quota or something to get you off the phone because they will tell you what you want to hear and not worried about the customer service survey afterwards. The customer service representative will act like they addressed all you questions over the phone but several days later is when you find out nothing ever was setup or problem never taken care of or addressed. You see, you get a survey shortly when you get off the phone with the representative you spoke too, and because they tell you what you want to hear you give them good marks. It is not until a day(s) later that the representative you talk too was a slack#$%$ and did not address your problem until a appointment does not happen or some other problem was never addressed correctly. However , Comcast is a buy if you want a steady grower that has limited competition.
They didn't even mention it in the article just out.
Consider this: If Steven Spielbergs fees for the Jurassic Park "Consulting" is nearing 1 Billion dollars ... well, YOU do the math!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I expect a blow out tomorrow..
BTW- Disney has a 200B Market Cap and Comcast has 160B. Disney is 200B off Theme Parks and Content. Comcast has Theme Park and Content acquired from NBC Universal acquisition from GE. In addition they are an ISP, and Provide Cable TV services. If they continue to improve their Content side I see a Market Cap of 250B. Thoughts?
and they should talk about how it will put downward pressure on the dollar.
and about how countries will be able to bypass US sanctions.
and they should talk about how a lower dollar will jump start many US international companies.
So whats the deal Fast Money.
Its one of the most important things happening this year.
Its one of the reasons China had been buying tons of Gold.
How can you not ignore it.
Surely some of those traders will have, or already have currency options in place for protection from this fundamental change.
But their recent call on the 3D printers has to have been the WORST!
They've been tauting the top 4 in that space for the past 2 years all 80% higher than where they are now.

Don't foreget that they have little competition. They have some competition like AT&T in my area. ALL MY PROFESSORS at my University recommends using Comcast versus AT&T. I personally started-out using AT&T U-Verse when I went back to college and sometime my internet would crash taking a quiz or test online. As anyone knows these days, All colleges are going more and more online. But one thing that is also true, Comcast customer service sucks.
1) Banner slate of record breaking movies at box office (past and present)
2) New and Vastly (IMO) improved theme parks - esp Fast V and Harry Potter rides mean BIG $$$ coming!
3) Expanding WiFi service and Hi Speed Offerings making up for cord cutter losses
4) The stock as sitting near new highs - a break out means NO OVERHEAD RESISTANCE!
5) Cable and Home Entertainment is RECESSION PROOF.
6) New Channel and Services dedicated to 24/7 GAMING will be HUGE. There are 10's of millions of under served gamers out there who can't afford to pay for every single console and game that comes out. Monthly subscription and X1 is a lot more attractive to us. (IMO)
7) Company is currently engaged in a 5 BILLION dollar share buyback program that will crush the shorts.
When a company has poor customer service either one of two things...Company go out of business or grows! If the company is growing despite poor customer service then it is more likely a monopoly or limited competition... I say BUY, BUY, BUY
What is the best way to get through media to tell my story about COMCAST poor service? I am having terrible service as we speak, right now...This company Customer Service is absolutely terrible! I guess when there is no competition then the company can be this way.
Quit picking on Jerry. You are the one who needs sterilization. Add a lobotomy to it and we're done!
All I can say is WOW!
Does anyone here have a clue as to what's going on here?
We see a massive 200 point DUMP in the DJIA and this thing holds ROCK STEADY.
I can only imagine what would have happened had the market actually been good today.
What this portends (to me anyway) is that the earnings that come out prior to Thursday mornings open are going to be a real game changer. No "sell the news" event - quite to the contrary.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
And he ignores that by bringing in thousands of people a day, to a state short on jobs, short on water, and soon short on food.
Why do doctors give fertility drugs to over populated areas, and when they do have kids, they half what they should, or have cleft lips, among other things.
Why do we pay for families that already have 4 kids, which they can't afford, more money for a 5th kid.
If there was no overpopulation, we wouldn't have to import more food every day, and he world would be a couple of degrees cooler.
Hey Jerry, like the typical liberal hypocrite, you are against global warming, but you enable overpopulation, the primary cause of it.
that it's not even a workable solution. It might as well be dial up service. It's awful. Have regretfully been a Comcast user for years and dread going through the hassle they give you if you try to drop them but I will not be a Comcast user for much longer.
Oh no, I just got Comcast and I already don't like their customer service. I just got Comcast a week ago and they charged me more then they said they would for installation! Also, they came out and left the cable on the ground. I call customer service After Tech left to find out when Comcast is planning to install cable and they said 2 1/ 2 weeks, plus instead of hooking on a pole like Comcast did for last tenant 9 years ago for previous owner, they wanted to buy it and go across my gutter line, Sprinkler line, and Septic line, when they could have use the same existing cable or remove it and place new one on same hooks in the air. Saving you all the more details, so far starting to be a nightmare getting them to reschedule and have cable lifted in the air and put it on a pole!
You are right, Even though CUSTOMER SERVICE IS TERRIBLE. COMCAST has limited competition, and their CUSTOMER SERVICE will tell you just about anything you want to hear to get you off the phone to get their quota. How many of you have Comcast and had to talk to customer service about something and to only find out a day or two later that the Customer Service Representative lied to you and did not do what he/she said they would going to do for you? .
