All the news is out, anybody buying already has, so who's left........in the meantime, as long as these BIG volume numbers keep coming it will grind higher next year. Keep some small expectation of a dividend increase too. That's about it, boring. Ponz.
Just be real happy that Citi calls CME the best in class dividend yield...ha ha ha........citi was looking for $1.50. So you could say that it beat low expectations and prevented a sell off and for that we should all be greatful...ha ha ha......Going forward I would think CME is basically a really slow moving sloth but as long as it does grow at the rate these analysts are calling for it should be OK. Ponz.
Good for you to even get 700 shares out of something that hot. Your broker must have owed you. Ponz.
2 is better than 1. Before I left the house I saw them rifle CME down hard. Boy than can sure get sellers out whenever they want. I'll cross everything else. Haven't looked at anything today. About GFI, who knows. Seems that GFI wants to go with CME but Lutnick is putting up a fight over there. I guess Lutnick also had an issue with regulation on the size of his position in GFI which is really funny. Ponz.
I am happy Poles. Ahhhaa....he's blowing smoke looking to pick up scraps and there's never anything wrong with that cause scraps do happen just like last time when I still say he got lucky with ebola, eurotrash, and I forget what else (I love luck too, better than being good) with those 77's. CME will always keep us humble. Ponz.
With what you just said is probably a very good reason why I don't care for the 10 day as a trigger. Its just slow now Poles. Going into Thanksgiving next week it just seems like CME is going to just wear out some weakling longs so be patient where you can. The small chart is going to have to work on a flag pattern of its own and this double bottom that its at now doesn't look to hold anything. Then the .50X1.50 could give a 3 box giving that opportunity go get long in the 84.00+ area. With that I still would like to see it replay that pattern I was talking about yesterday from the September 1-13 sideways action to an 8 point rally. As for your worse 6 weeks, you can't force something that isn't there so just go with the flow. I don't see why you can't play AAPL for example. Just put up the _AAPL chart and go to town because it should be accurate. The only drawback is that I know you like to include intraday moves and stockcharts doesn't. With AAPL, its been pretty steady these days so intraday moves in the point aren't all that prevalent. Other than CME, unless something really jumps out at me I could be pretty much done for the year. We'll see. Ponz.
The specials are announced in the year they are given. We have had 3 of them. Nothing was skipped. The only variance was that the 1 year it was paid in the following year because of the inept government and the tax situation so CME paid us in January. Going forward, we still may get paid in January for what accrues to us the previous year. My guess all along, depending on where the stock price is at announcement time, is that CME would like to maintain a .025% regular dividend which at today's stock price would be $2.15 per year or an increase of 14% over last year. That would be fine. Now, since they need to juggle the regular and the special, there will be minor changes. Taking a stab at it, the special could come in at $3.10 which would be an increase of 19% over last year. Combining the 2 dividends would yield 6% which is consistent with what they have done over the past 2 years given a particular stock price. There you go. Now take this to Vegas and set some odds, or, if anyone has any other ideas lets hear about them. Ponz.
Nothing wrong with taking a shot.....especially whiskey......for me.......not really............but I could.......With the way CME historically trades off of earnings we should consider this day a real victory where it didn't get hit. In the past CME has also moved up after the earnings were out of the way. Ponz.
As usual when this happens is we all miss out. Well Poles, we might somehow get to that 82 print you were looking for to maybe get a 3 box back from that. Smaller point charts broke out and the smallest one is up against its trend line. Ponz.
Sure but nothing that I did not tell you ......YES. BTW, you still got lucky on those 77's, whooohoooohoo.....and so did I and beggars will not be choosey. You know, with this big dividend announcement coming down the pipe, with a certain amount of certainty, which by the way is also uncertain certainally, I say it gets to $90.00. Ponz.
