    XIN should pay a regular dividend

    Calling somebody a moron when you have no argument to make only show how miserable you are. I don't even what to argue with your groundless point.

    But for those who do not want to be as miserable as you are. Just look at Apple and Microsoft. When Apple did pay dividend during 1987 to 1997. The stock price drop more than half. When Apple stop paying dividend after 1997. The stock return more than 7000% till now. On the other hand, Microsoft returned around 1000% in the decade before it paid a dividend in 2003. Since 2003, the stock only returned around 15% till now.

    The examples I show are extreme. There are surely many high return dividend stocks. But remember what make the stock flies is not its dividend but its future earning. Future earning power of XIN? I don't see it. If you see it, you can still own it. I will be glad if I am wrong. If I am right, please do remember a "moron" is even smarter than you are.

    • You don't want to argue but then you do. ALL studies show that dividend paying stocks over time outperform those stocks that don't pay a dividend. The reason some don't think so is they only look at the share price and don't factor in the dividend payments.
