Why do the anal bashers forget to mention the 4.25% dividend??
Who is paying their publication bonus? How many dollars are they getting in the back alley? My friends,a 4.25% dividend is pretty hard to get from the bluest of the blue chips. Don't run too far. I read one article today in which the anal said earnings were very bad, and in the next sentence said 'the beat expectations' WHAT??? This is a cheap stock. And they are investing $13 Billion to EXPAND the business. Buy low, sell HIGH.
Again, If you buy today and hold for five years, cashing and using each Dividend check, you will have an average of around 15 in five years. You'll also have made one single buy, paid one single commission and I just bet you'll have made quite a bit of profit to boot. Smart people already know this.
