    Big Risk

    Putin has other ideas. We are going to see the world situation degrade, and the U. S., stock market is headed lower. Long term investors will see capital drops, but the income will probably hold up. Interest rates will continue to be low, and dividends will be the best source of income that will be around for quite a while, (years not months). Nice to see some comments about financial topics. You guys are kind of funny sometimes however. Good luck in your investments. I'm at the point where income from them is a huge factor in my material standard of living.

    I didn't buy it for a fast return. It appears company will provide increasing dividend payouts regularly and some capital appreciation over time. The total return should be really good if it is held for a decade or longer. If it gets bought out for cash, I'll have to find another food company. Conagra was second choice to this at this time. Good luck to you too.

  • I saw the ownership break down for the Cameron LNG. Sempra does not have enough percent ownership that they can spin out the enterprise and keep enough to control the operation. If that is correct they should split the stock. It just appears bad to the utility residential customer to see the stock price high. This will especially be true as more the California government mandates force the electric costs higher.

    law suit

    Yes, the trustee has nothing to say about the quality of the asset buying, or selling it. That is the owners choice. The people who are bringing suit are professional "investors" if they don't know and understand the value and risks associated with an asset they purchase, there is no one to blame but themselves. This is pure extortion.

    What's with the deal of the law suit by Blackrock and PIMCO? Gross was a typical pig buying the Fannie Freddie debt at a huge discount when the crises hit then he told congress they couldn't let these institutions go broke. He made a fortune for PIMCO by doing this. Where are all the suits from the previous holders of that debt that Gross bought from. When your a professional and you lose you blame someone else. This is just too bizarre. USB was well enough run it would have survived the without TARP. The very people who are suing would have lost it all. Now there after more money from people simply caught in the stupid rules from the government, the actions of criminals conducting mortgage fraud, and greedy gamblers posing as investors.

    With the Tyson buyout of Hillshire, I needed a new food company in my asset mix, and bought Hormel. Hormel appears to be a good choice. Are there any long term holders who have any feelings about the company's prospects? The financials as presented on the company's web site appear very good with only a relatively small unfunded pension liability as an issue. This company appears to be capable of increasing dividends regularly going forward. This message board is pretty quite. My past experience with this has shown quiet boards companies have good management, and profitable growing businesses.

    Sentiment: Hold
