No ridgeline for 2-years. "Supposedly" coming out with new one in 2016. Website very vague and iffy about that.
I think Honda is losing it. The civic's door is 2-feet high and hard to enter/exit. For those who don't mind getting into a circus act because of the 40 MPG, go for it.
Shouldn't they have had a truck in place before June-2014's last Ridgeline came off the aseembly.? What I need is an urban/suburban truck. 4-cyl. ... Terrific milage. ... Front-wheel-drive. .... Electric motors on each rear-wheel. ..... Knee-high bed. ..... Seats at least 4.
If EPS is converted to dollars, then profit in Yen will be less after currency conversion. But the positive news for HONDA is the company starts selling 6-seater business jet ($4.5 million per jet) and its first two years production were sold out.
Knowing that HMC will move up slowly (all ADRs usually appreciate slowly comparing to US equities), I am debating whether or not I should tie up my fund in this stock. Long term you can not go wrong.
Honda reports earnings early in January - profits will be much higher than last year's due to the weak yen - Toyota just released earning estimates for all of 2014 to exceed all prior records and is planning on investing a lot of it on expanding plants and properties. Honda announced to its employees that newly hired employees in Ohio will have to work for 8 years before that reach top pay - bad for new hires - great for additional profits.
doesnt matter how well they are selling if the yen is weakening against the dollar , the increase in sales is still less than the increase in the dollar v yen
any ADR is a disaster right now
If the dollar is appreciating relative to the Yen (and if this trend continues), then products made in Japan and paid for with Yen should become cheaper for US consumers (who pay with dollars). So, Honda should be able to sell more of their Japan-produced products in the US. Why, then, is the stock acting so weak?
Let me rephrase that then, what four dividend payments are expected for the CALENDER Year starting January 1, 2015. The one 22 yen for next quarter, and three payments of ? yen? Thanks D4
Honda's 2015 fiscal year started in April 2014. It has given two quarterly dividends of 22 yen per share since then and expects to give 22 yen again this quarter and again next quarter.
So for 2015 fiscal year Honda plans to increase their dividend from about 1.3% to 2.6%? Is that correct? I was going to ask if that was going to happen, but you answered that. Is this locked in yet, ot just the projected dividend increase still?
I bought in at $34.12, so I'm taking a bit of a beating right now. The stock is hovering nearly below the $30 mark. Do you guys think these airbag recall issues are temporary and that the stock will recover? Should I hold longterm, or just sell it off?
Have a question I am confused over how much the dividend is. Yahoo says it is $.39 [1.2% yield], Schwab says it is $.82 [2.65% yield], HMC website calculates 82 Yen ($.69100 [2.27% yield], & Morningstar says it is .1953 [.63% yield]. I know all of these answers are not correct. Any folks who have held HMC for awhile know what the Divie is??
Thanks. Does not change my wanna to own stock just keep okay records. & forecast dividends. GLTA
man, I hope you have low commission rates. Honda is a great stock to buy at 30 and sell at 40 then keep the profit in free shares.
I think that is just an knee-jerk reaction to seeing the price dropping and thinking, I've lost a little but not everything. Here is what you should think about:
Sell only if you want to take advantage of the loss on your taxes for the current year.
Longterm hold for sure and remember that they don't just make automobiles.
I agree with others that it is creating a nice bottom here. You will be fine. All car industry is in a lull right now. Honda is the 800 lb gorilla, they aren't going anywhere but up. Be patient.
