CYS has a rating of 2.2% on Fidelity's rate scale of 0-10 - very bearish. It might be a good time to hold off buying and watch it for the next 2 quarters. The housing market still seems a bit too volatile to get deeply involved in.
The only REITS that seem to be fairing anywhere close to well, are those handling commercial real estate.
Just my opinion.
I have always wondered why someone who owns shares in a company, will go out of their way to bash the company, thus discouraging others from buying shares. Don't you know that the more who buy shares, the higher the share price will go ?
FTR will be back to $5.00, or very close to it by 12/3, just before ex-date on the 5th, or very clost to it. Watch and see.
@owens132000: You seem to be very unhappy with the management of this company. If you own the stock, why don't you just sell it and move on ? If you don't own it, why don't you just move on, instead of continuing to make yourself look foolish ?
I am heavily invested and long in this stock, and have done very well with it the past 3 years. They have made great progress this year, and I feel that they will continue to do so. I recommend a very strong buy.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
No - you would have had to be in on 9/17 to get paid for this quarter. The ex date was 9/18 and the pay date is 10/25. Price should drop a bit after paydate. That would be a good time to get in for the next quarter.
How much payout is earnings and how much is principal ? I don't know how to figure this and would appreciate some help. Please, no wisecracks from self-appointed experts. I'm looking for a helpful answer.
@brilliantstorm: No, I checked my account online at my brokerage firm. Yours should show the same.
Next expected report date is 11/18/13. They seem to be running a bit late this quarter.
Your friend is lucky. When I have a problem with my ATT internet service, I have to talk to a dimwit in India that can't tell their rear end from a hole in the ground.. Try dealing with them a couple of times, and you would wish for FTR techs. I think they are all in the US.
