Given that you don't have a clue what other people's investment strategies are, of course you don't know.
Quite frankly, I wouldn't trust Cramer as far as I could throw him. He depends on people's short memories to forget the lousy advice he's given over the years. He's an entertainer.
I used to be optimistic about F. Got in at 7.32. Have watched as it doesn't move on tons of good news, and free falls on an ounce of bad news. There is a giant foot squashing it. I thought 22 was possible a long time ago. It's my second largest holding, but I have it now for the div, not because I think it will be growth stock.
As I write this, VGR is up .28. This, along with its run up from the 15s, implies that someone is adding big time. Hedge fund? Tobacco company? Private equity? Any ideas?
Everyone's investment strategy is different, so any thoughts may not apply to you. I am on the verge of retirement, so my portfolio is made up of dividend stocks for the cash. DD fits that priority for me. If you want to take the gains and invest in something else, that would be your priority. At any rate, good luck in whatever you decide.
After rebalancing my portfolio, I've established a large position in Awilco over the past few weeks. Am hoping all the positive speculation for its future will come true. At any rate, the div was irresistible. This seems like a win/win stock.
I am up about 40% on DD over my cost basis. I like the div which continues to grow since my initial investment. I think it will continue to benefit shareholders. The negative and off-topic comments here are reflective of other Yahoo boards. Go to GE and BA for examples. Thanks for a germane post.
I am not sure what the incessant criticism of DD on this board hopes to accomplish. The stock just keeps going up. Personal animus is no reason to make financial decisions.
