S&P hit 1820.12 on 2/12/14. Goldman just dropped their year-end 2015 forecast to 2000. Have you told Goldman about your retest prediction? I'm sure they'd like to know.
Does anyone know?
They show RDS-B dividend as $3.44 and price $51.92.
That makes a yield of 6.6%.
Yahoo shows the yield #$%$3%.
I have found lots of "bad" info on Yahoo; anybody else?
Actually, it's Thomson Reuters Market Edge that gives KKR 3 out of 10. Scottrade just reports that info.
It's amazing how little understood Scottrade is. Scottrade does not do research or render opinions. It reports on others' recommendations. BTW, S&P stilil shows at 5 stars on Scottrade.
How does any company do under those circumstances?
If you know, please indicate those that will do well.
In a global recession there should be less need for ARCC's financing services. But, deals they act on should be at higher rates if they climb.
Morningstar gives KKR 4 Stars and Value Line yesterday improved its "Timeliness" to "3" from "4". Value Line's "Projected 3-5 Year Annual Total Return" is 30%.
RDS-B's low for the last 10 years was about $37.50. Various analysts see an upside between $55.15 and $87.61. Value Line sees a $95 high and an $80 low (As of 9/4). With a 6+% current yield, it seems you've got a downside cushion while being paid to wait for the stock's recovery.
The business has committed to pay dividends of US$1.88 (£1.25) per share in 2015; that currently costs a chunky £12bn.
Next year though, providing the deal goes through in time, its dividend payment will rise to £15bn.
Shell has committed to maintaining the dividend for the next 7 quarters. I see no reason to doubt that. After those quarters, the plan could change depending on business conditions.
Can that happen without the whole world falling apart?
Who thinks Shell can't weather a storm? If Shell can't, who can?
Where else would you put your money?
Gold? Treasuries? Fine Art? CDs? Under your Mattress? Jewelry? Real Estate?
All ideas welcome.
