    Time to Raise Divi

    Why does USB need to create currency to buy other banks via stock deals? The FDIC comes knocking on their door every Friday giving away assets for pennies on the dollar...

    If USB wants to create long term shareholder value without raising the dividend (and possibly having to cut it again in the near term if the market goes south) they should engage in a share repurchase program. This way USB is not committed to a dividend and still creates tremendous shareholder value...

    USB has a mandate to return 80% of earnings back to shareholders in the form of dividends / share repurchases and I sense one in on the horizon...

    • Share buy backs are for the birds. I have never seen a buy back that increased the value of the stock. I always took the dividend and purchased more stock or a Dividend Reinvestment Plan(DRIP).
