I agree that it is tempting to exit XOM due to boredom, however it is one of the best LT investments...regarding the upcoming dividend increase announcement, I doubt you will see a 50% increase...I would be happy with 20%+...we shall see in the coming weeks...
Who needs a 0.5% CD when you can buy PFE yielding north of 4%? Plus another dividend increase coming soon. Anyone see a negative near-term event or board/management decision that could shake the 'safeness' of this stock?
Surprised there was not a price spike due to the recent dividend increase. Healthy, stable, profitable company yielding 3.6%. Let's see what happens next week.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Positive news about the special dividend. Any thoughts as to what happens to the $0.255 quarterly dividend beginning in Q1 2013? Are MHP investors expecting an increase and if so, what will the increase likely be?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The WEC DRIP works well - small dollar investments and no fees to buy. I see people writing that the stock is too high. I disagree. Keep accumulating shares in steady increments. Once the stock splits, potential for new investors to enter the stock.
WEC is a solid company with a solid management and track record. This stock is going to split soon or management is going to raise its dividend in 2007.
I don't believe this is the stock you want to short.
CMG is for keeps? Right... McDonald's doesn't seem to think so...they will be profiting from people like you that have been overpaying for CMG. >$50 per share? Better sell before MCD does...
hey edison - you keep buying my friend. When Q1 falls short of estimates, you keep buying...
At these bloated price levels, can't you find a better company to put your money in?
I am liquidating my 401K Plan, selling my house and stealing money from my family so I can buy CMG and be rich in 10-20 years.
You should sell your CMG and use some of the proceeds to hire a shrink.
You should have your head examined buying this stock at these price levels.
You have issues if you can't find better, less-risky, dividend-paying stocks at $54/share.
Wait until the stock hits the mid 40's - then buy.
You can lose money two ways:
(1) flush your wallet down the toilet, or
(2) buy CMG at these price levels
jwg - you will have your opportunity to buy at $52 and much, much lower. You keep buying...
I applaud you for your LT investment strategy. Just be careful not to over-extend on one stock. Remember, this is a mexican restaurant, not the next drug manufacturer of a cure for cancer.
I am sure you can buy better companies for $54/share.
Think about it.
That's exactly my point moron. You are up 33% on a bloated stock and you are holding it? For what? To see it adjust down to normal levels (~$35-$45/share).
You must be a 30-something with a selective memory of the dot-com bust.
