To help pay for this new dividend, let's reduce the 401K match for the employees, reduce the health care benefits, and don't give raises for years.
"People are our greatest assets" = only shareholders.
Employees are suckers and overhead.
70% employees in US and Europe cannot be afforded. We need to offshore MORE!!! (Investor Conference). More rebadging to HCL is needed.
"We will invest in our future" = reducing RD&E from 7% to
Don't complain. ACS-unit employees haven't had a match or bonuses or raises for years and pay significantly more for essentially the same health care benefits. Legacy Xerox employees have been treated far better than ACS-unit employees.
Wow, you are clueless. Part of the lunch bucket America crowd that doesn't have an idea how the economy works. If you don't know what you are talking about, don't post that kind of nonsense. You just look foolish!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Look numb nuts....By raising the dividend the stk surely will go up and most employees will benefit
employees can buy the stk @ a discount..
besides a strong stock price will benefit the company and reward both employess and stockholders, strong stk price will help XRX its balance sheet, ..hires new workers etc etc
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Excuse me for being stupid, but how does the price of the stock relate to the value of the company?
The price of the stock has absolutely no impact on a balance sheet or an income statement. A P/E is nothing more than an average estimate of what the "Street" wants to pay for a stock.
Are you saying that if the stock doubles that XRX would be in better shape as a comapny thanbefore? Why? Should that mean they should expand? Hire more people?
If the stock goes down 50%, should hte company lay off half their people?
You could not be more right. It is important to manage by facts. With that being said, lets compare returns at the close of market today with some of the XRX competitors. After all with
the raise in stock dividend XRX announced, we should clearly be at least in the middle of today's returns? OOPS, will look at this again in a couple of weeks. I am sure it will correct itself by then..
CAJ 34.56 +0.39 +1.14%
LXK 24.22 +0.23 +0.96%
HPQ 11.94 +0.23 +1.96%
XRX 6.46 +0.04 +0.62%
Do you agree that Xerox needed to do something to effectively motivate the share price higher?
If not by raising the dividend, what then?
What do you think would happen to Xerox as a company if the share price kept falling?
