I have owned NRGY since 2004 . I'm very happy with both their growth and dividend increases.
While helping a friend search for new dividend paying stocks I came across SPH.
Comparing the two on :
Also the Price Check Calculator:
I'm now thinking of selling some of my NRGY and buying some SPH.As they both look good to me.However,NRGY has grown so much over the years I think it is undervalued.
SPH pays less of a dividend but looks better from what I see.
Any thoughts on the two would be appreciated and thanks in advance.
PS, other stocks that I'm looking at are.
All EPS are more than they are paying out in dividends.
Best of luck to all.
Man, UVE is _very_ tempting....although it's an insurance company in FL, it appears to focus on home damage caused by wind, not flooding, perhaps a nice little niche to be in?
It's small and growing fast, and insiders own about 62% of the float (see Morningstar.com), mostly due to the exercise of stock options and outright stock compensation. Yahoo's insider numbers are way off, like usual.
It's hard to resist buying up some UVE -- the div is small enough in absolute cash value that the pps doesn't seem to suffer a huge drop on the ex-div date like some other stocks and funds.
Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
Still looking very hard at CLMT, along with JHNRX, FSNGX, and PNRZX, three large mutual funds in the natural resource sector with great pedigrees and some past gigantic payouts -- JHNRX paid $11.4534 in 2007 and $6.2680 in 2008, while PNRZX and FSNGX paid out smaller but more stable amounts from 2005-2008 in the range of $2-$5/shr. Not so great for holding in a taxable account, but perfect for an IRA!
Thanks for your help, and that goes to everyone else here too.
It's so refreshing to "drop in unannounced" on a Yahoo Finance message board and to immediately get polite and helpful answers to your questions. Unfortunately that's not the norm on the Yahoo boards.
I'll go lurk around the those other boards a bit to learn some more, but I'll be keeping on eye on this one too.
Good luck to everyone in the coming new year!
I saw that Kramer bit last night, but I have a warning note in my bookmarks not to own an MLP in an IRA because of the tax issues. Do you own MLPs in a taxable or non-taxable account, and how hard is it to deal with the taxes?
