I am sitting on $20,000.00 right. I would like to invest it in this company. The question is, Do I invest now or do I wait for a lower price? I do own some shares in this company and I am in there dividend reinvestment plan. This seem like a very good company to have.
Has anybody notice that we are now paying a service fee? I received a letter that effective June 1, 2012 that the stockholder will be charged for dividend reinvestment charge of 5% of the dividend amount up to a maximum of $2.00. It also stated that the transaction fee for dividend reinvestment for shareholder owning less than 100 shares and enrolled in full reinvestment their will be no service charge. I guess that you own more than 100 shares you will be charged a service fee? Is this correct?
Does anybody think this stock will split any time soon. I would like to buy in at a low price. Plan on buying in thru the dividend reinvestment plan. I am new to this company. Please help.
Earnings per share for PEP for 2011 was 4.03% vs. KO 3.69%. Earnings per share from 2001 thru 2011 was 10.6% for PEP vs. 8.7 for the same period. Total return to investors was for 2011 has been 4.7% for PEP vs. 9.4% for KO. Total return to investor from 2001 thru 2011 was 5.4% for PEP vs. 6.7% for KO. Profit as a % of revenues was 9.7 for PEP vs. 18.4% for KO. In some cases it looks like PEP has a ways to go to catch up to KO in some areas. Both are very good companies to own.
No, I don't think it will split any time soon. I think it would have to stay above the 70's mark for some time to split. Besides, a split don't nothing for you.
I see by the paper that Michelin Tire Company is building a plant in S.C that will make Ohio, once the rubber capital of the world, now ranks as 11th biggest North American which produces about 24,500 tires a day.
The new Michelin plant will produce 84,00 tires a day in a non-union plant. It appears that the non-union plant is out producing the union plant. It also has better technical colleges dating back to the 1960's.
One of the reasons that the plant is being built in a right to work state is that union plants generally come with greater employees benefits and rules governing the amount and type of work an employee can perform.
And you wonder why your company is ranked 11th in tire making. Can you say UNIONS.
Did anyone notice that of the thirteen Board of Directors that only two do not set on some other publicly traded company. Only Mr Gorsky and Ms. Lindquist. All of the rest set on some other companies board. It no wonder that in company had problem. No one was minding the store, no one was paying any attention to this company and what was going on inside of it. This Board should have gotten rid of Weldon a long time ago for all the re-calls. I voted against all of the current Board of Directors. They are all at fault. Too much of the good old boys club. Time for a change in upper management.
Weldon to receive $143 million in his retirement. That is way to much, I could have driven the company into the ground for half that price.
What are talking about. I looked up GGN and its is Gabelli Global Gold Natural Resources & Income. It pays no dividends at all. Going for $15.00 a share. Also its not a high dividend utilities. Did you get the the ticker from?
I see an article in the Money & Investing section of the Wall Street Journal that Johnson & Johnson is up year to date some 6.03% for 2011 not including dividends. I'll take that considering what the market has done on a whole. I am in the Dividend Re-Investment Plan.
