I agree that SAN is a great long term hold. I have been accumulating shares with the scrip dividend. Its unbelievable to me that people complain about the scrip dividend. If they don't like it, just take the payout and pay 20% Spanish taxes on it and stop complaining. Caching! SAN didn't go bankrupt like other banks, and it is now more capitalized.
Now you're talking trash. BIDU's going to behave very similarly to GOOG- up, stabilize, up, stabilize, up. Great long term investment I believe.
I've held KSU for 3 years. Sold half after it doubled. Even with this drop I'm even with my original investment. Now would be a good time to add to holdings and see how it does in another 3 years. I love KSU.
It's trading below book value right now. It should at least trade for what it's worth- $16.
This is the third split since I've held CIG shares. It must be some accounting procedure. If you reinvested the dividends, you would not be calling CIG a pig.
I've held it for several years. Just a reminder- even though the share price is down significantly, we've come out way ahead with the dividends.
I agree. I had the opportunity to buy BIDU pre-split (10:1 Bruno) at $100 but didn't because I didn't know enough about the company. Coulda-woulda-shoulda. My average cost is $110/share. I took some profits off the table at $176, but it looks like it's going over $200 real soon.
Microntrader thinks that 1.2 billion people who speak Chinese is a small number! He's talking out of the wrong orifice.
I don't know where you get your information, but from what I know Google does not own QIHU. I don't think BIDU is looking to buy QIHU. I think this is rumor mongering.
There is so much hype with QIHU, I'm quite skeptical. Part of the problem for me is that I can't get real information on it. At least the p/e ratio is down to 110, but that is on reported earnings, and it is still too expensive in my view. I think it is more likely that it will have a serious correction before going to $145!
I don't think it's a good idea to insult Argentinians. Can you explain why the USA government subsidizes the coal and petroleum industry?
You must have bought at the absolute bottom. ECA is as low as it can go. It can only stay at this level or go up. I miss that 4% divvy. I haven't lost any money on this investment.
Huge volume. 5% divy, a product that people won't give up, reasonable valuation, American company, increasing dividend. Great retirement investment. I've got it in my IRA.
50% revenue growth! Popped up in after hours trading over 7%. BIDU shares are really going to move up now; it is really on a roll.
I know it's a pain, but I would suggest that you does put the yahoos on *ignore* and the one's that are bad click *report*. Do you have any suggestions of another more reputable board. This one does have a lot of garbage.
