tired of the excuses and the reasons for poor PPS performance. at the end of the day, it is the prime responsibility for CEO and the Board to increase shareholder wealth. that is not happening here. day after day WY underperforms in both the housing and building sectors and lags behind the DJI as a whole. investors would be better off with mutual funds than WY. getting sick of this steady erosion to share price. P/E over 25. that is because the numerator, the earnings, are too low. must rethink my position here. am soliciting responses and would appreciate others' sentiments. thanks.
Sounds like you would be better off to put your money into another company and probably into another industry. This is building materials / forest products, a conservatively managed sector where companies do not take much risk and take a long term view at shareholder value. If you look at the numbers, WY is middle of the road in price performance and dividend. Not as good as a Plum Creek and not as bad as an LPX. It's not just WY that is underwhelming lately; pretty much any housing stock is not on the fast track that it was a few months ago. You should sell the next time WY breaks above $30.
retired_geezer, thank you for your reply. WY breaks $30, i will cash in. the yield would then be 2.7%, not enough incentive to stay. my cost basis is $28.11 and WY is 7.2% my stock portfolio. that is a chunk... Good luck.
