They seem to prefer Thursdays so maybe Feb 11th after 11 AM.
My guesstimate is .032/share or .128 for the year or about 7% more than last year.
Why is it so important? Either the stock will rise, fall or remain the same. If it's great report it will rise and it'll be too late to buy. If it falls it'll be too late to sell. if nothing happens the price remains the same. Bet on your confidence.Going up? Buy now. Going down? Sell now. No one on this board has any insight. Neither do you.
Has there been any mention of a set earnings date? I have this Friday down as a tentative (based on last year's Feb 12th date) but couldn't find anything concrete otherwise. Anyone else hear of anything?
I don't know why but I sold all of our bank stocks in 2006 when Regions and AmSouth merged. Had BAC, CCBG and both AmSouth and Regions. So very glad I did. We had a long and great run with them until then. Started with Barnett bank and bought CCBG when it first went public. I found AMNF a few years ago and have traded it several times. AAPL has been good to me. Ditto CBRL, SO, SYY, WM amd even T. I have a buy order in on AMNF right now but it's a limit order. All or none.
If you like "utility like" stock try AWK. Behaves like a utility but can also grow through acquisition. Bring up AWK chart, overlay S&P and look at any time interval from 1 day to MAX.
I to had a good feeling about HD again applyed the Peter Lynch theory if it looks
good and feels good give it a shot, bought in about 3 years ago and got a 4 bggar.
I have my share of losers one big one is Bank of AMerica still Holden 1500 shrs.
much of it purchased through my Div.Reinvest plan over the years.
Doing OK with WellsFargo. My advise to any one interested, is to be well
diversified . I am hearing that Utilities are a good place to be now.
Yes, sometimes just looking around provides great opportunity. I remember walking into a newly opened HD many many years ago and the handyman part of my brain said "Wow, this is great - no more running around to 4 diff stores for a project" Unfortunately the investment part of my brain was asleep.
Been in since 2009 starting at .44 Now have 132K. I wonder if the family will sell out - there is good chance cap gains rate will go up from the current 15%. This is a window of opportunity they may not see again. Meanwhile just collecting about $2500/qtr div.
Thanks bell, been a holder of this stock for over 10 years. one of my best buys along with Apple, and now Facebook. as they say it's not what you know it's who you know, a friends son works for Apple.
I was in the food sales business,called on them in there Italian delicatessen
on San Bruno, ave. in S.F. had a great business going, as time went by suddenly I was
told by one of the Armanino's, behind the counter they were closing up and going into the
farming business, I said are you serious, given up this great business in a great location
and soon after they were gone. Then after many years later I saw there Pesto, in a market
Raleys or Safeway , later discovered the stock started buying a little at a time at .50 a share.
Knowing the type of people they were and how well it was to do business with them I
I began buying there stock, turned about 10k into 50 plus.
Having read Peter Lynch's book One Up On Wall Street helped .
No. But watching the tape it was steadily 100 shares at the ask. Since their were many more shares available that behavior is a market maker (no commission) not an individual.
IMO growth has stalled as telegraphed by less than expected divvy increase. IMO 2015 will be flat to maybe 5% over 2014. 1.90-2.00 seems like a fair price to me until they start to show double digit growth again. Meanwhile just sit and collect the divvy and hope Q4 (mid Feb) is reasonable.
