    • Assuming the dividends are cumulative, the following table can be built:

      The first column is the shares per 1000 dividend, the second column is a multiplier, and the third column is the (rounded) resulting number of shares.

      141 -> 1.141 -> 21
      80 -> 1.08 -> 18
      100 -> 1.1 -> 17
      400 -> 1.4 -> 16
      280 -> 1.28 -> 11
      230 -> 1.23 -> 9
      450 -> 1.45 -> 7
      500 -> 1.5 -> 5
      800 -> 1.8 -> 3
      800 -> 1.8 -> 2
      Initial stake: 1 share

        That's ok, lau_wang, we understand!

        There is a better deal to really cheer you up:

        If you think 1 to 21 shares is too slow, you can always cut the paper stock certificate into small pieces, say, for one stock certificate you can cut at least 20 pieces, then you have 21x20=420. Boy-o-boy, now you have 420 shares. That is:

        One share in 1995 ==>>> 420 shares in 2004.

        That will certainly keep you warm after you move in the dog house with olddog88.

        HeHeHe!

      • Stock Dividend is just like splits. It does not create shareholder value.

      • The golden days of TSM were under President Lee's leadership.

        President Lee and his followers bought tons of TSM in 1995 because we had the vision.

        A-Bian and his wife bought TSM, too, imo.

        Those with vision became rich.

        Those crying babies who rejected President Lee as the President of Taiwan and sold their properties in Taiwan and fled Taiwan for mainland or whereever became poor ghosts forever, lol.

        Those in fear of the strong spirits of Taiwanese these days will sell TSM to us.

        We will turn each share of TSM into 21 shares in another ten years, imo.

        Go Taiwan Go!

      • <<<<
        ?????One share in 1995 => 21 shares now????
        >>>>
        Wooops, your calculator maybe broken. Sounds pretty much like a GOGO dancer.

      • Have you owned TSM shares since 1995? If not, what's the point?

        Your "strong buy" sentiment is insane and irresponsible.

        Let's assume that you came to TSM in Year 2000 and bought 1,000 shares, your shares will have grown to 1,898 shares now.

        But please remind yourself that TSM was traded at $30s in 2000 and is at $9.08 as of today.

        Again assume that you bought 1,000 shares at $30.00 per share in Year 2000 and your cost was $30,000 in total.

        Those 1,000 shares has ballooned to 1,898 shares by now, but each share only worths $9.08. The total market value of your stock is now $17,234.

        That means you have lost $0.43 for each $1 you have invested.

        Loser!

    • Is it too late to buy the stock for this year's dividend?
