As a believer in the company, I am happy to see this drop is due to a "downgrade". This usually presents a great buy opportunity for the real investor who is willing to buy and hold for 1 year or more.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Please translate your post in English for us less than cool. I don't think Friday.s move of almost 5% a slight "pop" given a gold "pop" of less than 60,
If you owned a company producing a product whose price was below production costs and your debt was in excess of your cash and liquid assets, would you pay your investors a dividend. P.S. I am long IAG.
You are a total idiot. I thought I put you on ignore. I an really suffering pain with my 10% dividend I just turned into cash at 9.99 and my acquisition cost of 7.90. I wish I had this much pain with my other holdings.
I'll tell you why I gave it a thumbs down. Your post is so lacking in information that it is entirely "worthless". If you care to render an opinion, at least back it up with some reasoning Of course the word "reasoning" may be beyond your comprehension.
I think pps greatly depends on how much yield should be associated with the risk taken. 11.2% does not appear unreasonable. Under 10% would not work for me.
I, as a former RAD employee, felt there was a prevailing corporate culture best described by the story of "the emperor's new clothes." Things such as inventory control, labor hours control, and other ineffectual corporate practices were not to be discussed with corporate superiors who were typically selected as they were good "yes men (or women as the case maybe). I wonder if things are changing under the new CEO?
Me too. Having bought 6 months ago for 49.90, I am happy with my 16% annualized appreciation. I see SODA as a long term hold as I see the product a game changer much as Keurig has been.
They are certainly out of favor but so is gold as an investment. With the market up considerably this year and dividend payments pretty good. why would anyone buy gold as an investment? I believe, though, this is like a pendulem. We will see a swing in the other direction. I still see 1500 an oz. but later than the first of the new year. Maybe by the end of March.
Conclusion to my analogy is every company has a business model. The real reason IAG sells gold is cash flow. I would hope the BOD has a better idea than I about the true value of IAG stock, Here again, I agree with you about cash as I am a semi-retired 71 year old, but I believe the real investor is interested in growth and value. I have fallen victim to companies which pay out huge dividends at the expense of corporate value hence, reduced stock price.
I rented a furnished apartment for a short term. When it became long term I offered to buy the used furniture (used furniture is usually steeply discounted). My veryy high offer was refused as the company manager stated the business objective was to rent furniture not to sell it. I am more amazed that IAG would continue to pay a dividend instead of buying back its own stock.
Yes!! And to really make a killing, keep your short position past the next dividend date. The only killing will be of the person taking this advice.
Good reasoning, but to quote a favorite relative, "i'd rather be lucky then smart". We may yet see 10.38 if we see more market weakness or gold weakness.
I would like some opinions as to why utility stocks are taking such a beating today. I have flagged most of the political geniouses as "ignore" and have a board full of "hiddens". I want to learn more about the stock market. I don't want to read someones semi-literate opinions of US government. I can make my own judgements about our president and congress.
