Go figure. Just about every single stock goes up today except PG. On another note. Instead of buybacks when your stock has been near its 52 week high..give us an increase on our dividends. To me, most of tghe time on a buyback all it shows is a false sense of how the company is doing and at the same time giving the officers a pay increase.
Low beta is okay by me. Prefer it that way. You can't be too greedy.
also looking at this etf. Israel is an amazing country with so many successful tech start ups. Great way to invest in Israel.
Well...whatever happened in court.....CEM closed at 19.01 on December 1....today they closed at 14.36. A 28% drop in one week. Looks like their divy will be cut along with so many others in mlp funds. Want to stay..but making me sweat profusely.
Before everybody gets too excited about the dividend, it could get cut because of too high a payout ratio. KMI, even as strong as they are is considering a divvy cut.
Bought back in August at 17.73. Wanted to get a security stock but could not decide between several. This is an up and comer. Can only see growth in the future. You bought at a good price.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I 2cannot for the life of me see any advantage to the EMC stockholder on this deal except for somebody holding extremely large lots. The tracking stock really will not be worth that much considering what they are getting for EMC. and the cash price they will pay for it seems low considering when they had rumors started the price as I have found it was 25.93. And as for Dell....how the hell are they gonna pay down that debt? Just cannot see it. Voting no on the sale.
They are playing smart...in spite of what others say in this board. Brilliant acquisition of Blake's. Broadens their portfolio without conflict. They needed a natural/organic acquisition.
Sometimes something simple like a name change, etc. gives an uplift and more legitimacy and relevance to a company. Hoping this works out for the best. Seems to have given it a more upbeat attitude. anyway.
RIG is an accidentially high yielder..which is so high now I would be afraid on the dividend. Owned SDRL here for several years, but once it when into a downspin and the % yield kept getting higher..they finally dropped the dividend. NYCB is a good takeover target with strengths in several markets. Would love for someone to acquire it. Wish you luck with RIG.
Smart move by Costco to cut out Amex. Amex charges businesses too much for use of their card. Had Amex card capabilities at my business and cut them out for they charged 3% more then M/C,Visa, and Discover. Maybe it will teach Amex a lesson and they will cut their fees.
Might use it as a model....with a lower % off like an extra 2% off if that much. Target's card was started to be used a "coupon" as their business and profits were lagging. Costco is on an upswing.
I admit. The enjoyment my wife and I have of the dividend of $0.25 a share is enjoyable but......it has not raised its dividend since April of 2004. Why??
If it hits 9.39 I would be jumping through the ceilings. I only see it hovering between 6.50 and 7.50 for the next couple of months. Do enjoy the dividend though.
There is a reason....the oil market is collapsing. If they were just retailers, I think they would be ok. But they are refiners too and everybody in the oil business and transportation business is getting hit.
