    STC is now a three-bagger for me from where I originally started buying....

    ....its been a nice ride. Unbelievably, STC' presentation on their website is what kept me in it during this pretty long period (although I did trade this one)....which basically stated, nearly two+years ago, that operationally, things would start getting materially better mid-2012. And they were right on target. Of course the general strength of the sector aint hurting.

    • Ive got a triple too. Never traded it and never listened to any presentation.

      STC just announced a doubling of their dividend to 10 cents which is kind of pitiful considering they are sitting on over $10 per share in cash and over $6.65 per share in cash net of long term debt.

      And, in years past, they paid a 75 cent annual dividend for 3 years preceded by 46 cents for 2 years prior to the 75 cents.

      Paid 75 cents in 07,06 & 05. 46 cents in 04 & 03.

      With the tax situation, an argument could have been made for a several dollar one time dividend this year.
