good quarter, good year, right on track to enhance the enterprise value long term. Share purchase program accelerating, could be more than 50MM shares, and happen sooner than year end, for sure. That supports s/p.
Sure, there are lots of stock you can make money with, but MRK pays a nice dividend, and I own it because I think it's going north from here. Your statement is true for a lot of stocks, no guarantees with anything. I like blue chip dividend payers.... good luck.
I believe that a major investment will be attempted or made in the company, based on the long term potential. Even if they don't turn profitable in the next 2 quarters, this is too attractive to be negative about.
To be expected. However, the share buy-back program is clearly providing support, and helping to maintain/grow EPS.
Really like the potential for ITW to refine the business and deliver shareholder value in an innovative approach. Bold strategy, well executed, good visibility.
CYS is not a value play, it's a dividend play, so it's not going to rally/collapse like most common stocks. Either you like the 10-11% yield, or you don't.
