Actually there are honest people on these boards and their posts on their strategies help rookie investors.
Personally up 107% last year. Up 20% 1st 2 months of this year. I expect a 50% year this year. Had 3 stocks up 200% in the last 18 months (NCT, HIMX, GTAT)
NRF is a hold for me. Can't beat the great dividend. DRIP is nice to have at age 49. With 16k shares, this alone could be my retirement... It is my 3rd largest position behind the following:
GTAT big recent run, should hit 25-30 this year (apple tie in) In at 3,35 avg
Himx should hit 25 this year, Google tie in. In at an adjusted for swing trades basis of 2.58 avg
Hard to tell. They earned .30 and paid .25 for 2012 . 2013 earned ~.38. Google investment paid for the capital needed to expand production. So cash is available. My best guess based on previous payment patterns (rewarding patient shareholders... Their words) is .30/sh
2011 Earned .06 paid .05
Sorry, Banks pay ~1% NYMT ~14%. Wall street will not unlock the value of these stocks. Other REITS have solved this through spin-offs. NCT and NRF both used this stragegy and the share prices skyrocketed from where they were. Fortunately I held both well before the announcements.
Yes he did, No have not seen DLIA. Will look today, what are your thoughts on it? Bit the bullet. Added 6k more GTAT (finally took my own advice...)
Added 6k more here. Wasted a couple bucks a share waiting for a pullback. long term well worth it.
Thank you to Mungee Cali and others. Great resources on this message board.
Hasch, Dividend will be much less of a factor this year due to the lower "yield" on the payout. Last year was ~5%. This year assuming .30 (an increase and ~80% of earnings for 2013) it will be 2.1% (using a 14.23 share price). Could they go higher , yes, the money to expand for production came externally (google investment). Hard to get a feel for this years divvy, last years was much easier to predict.
Good observations, but don't quibble a few pennies. Add if you are going to. 14.23 is a great long term add price. Actually it was the last add price in my core position just prior to earnings. I have scalp shares at 13.88, 13.42 and 13.28.
I sat back the last week and "waited" for my add price for core shares of GTAT, I am just going to have to bite the bullet and add more there, lost a couple bucks a share waiting... It is hard to convince yourself to simply dive in when logic says there will be a pullback..
HIMX has had several nice dives into the lower 13's. If it does so again, it is a gift.
;) yep. If they give, why should we not take. Sitting on quite a few shares Itching for the 1.66 retrace to the 52 week high (15.33). If it dips again, might just buy again.
Very simply and aptly put Call...
Trump, Thanks for calling that point to our attention. It is one I had overlooked and it's ramifications to new investors.
At this price, a simple run to 25 would provide ~approx. the same return as the 300+% gain last year. 25 is IMHO more than a distant probability.. Should happen earlier rather than later in the year
