  • Dividend Doctrine of Investors Liberation Movement
    Dividends can and should be paid ONLY when the company has nil debt,
    its business outlook is satisfactory, it has "surplus" cash defined as money it
    can't productively use in its business, and its stock price is too high to
    appropriately repurchase (meaning without making the remaining shares
    less valuable fundamentally). Any dividend declaration in violation of these
    four conditions is ipso facto NOT in the best interest of shareholders.
    If a dividend is paid, it should be done annually to save expense, occur when
    the company's cash hoard is most abundant, and timed in a manner to
    minimize the tax consequence to shareholders.
    REITs generally should not pay distributions exceeding the legally required
    minimum of 90% of taxable income following the same timing principles.

    Dividents are now being declared by many public companies whose shares are held
    by intermediary institutions on behalf of their unsophisticated holders for completely
    illegitimate reasons that the unsophisticated holders would never approve if they were
    aware of the damaging effects. That's why the First Iron Rule for independent investors
    and the slogan of Investors Liberation Movement is "Never buy mutual funds!"
    Someday, I hope that I.L.M. can approve mutual funds operated according to
    our doctrines because I realize that many ordinary people can't spend the time
    to personally manage their investments.

    LMAO! You mean that WAS the worst! Today we have the guy waking up and going through his day with 4 investment advisors surrounding him, all taking at once etc.

    Okay invesco, the meaning is clear....but the commercial sends people to a different channel LIKE NOW! LOL!

    I seriously have to wonder who heads up your marketing department and more specifically, who your ad agency is..........I mean these harrassment like approaches to "getting the word out" are a real nuisance approach. WAIT....let me guess.....your marketing guru is a former political ad campaign spud!????

    Nuisance commercials are counter-productive.
