Forward yield is OK at around 2.59% so I am staring to think about laddering in a position around here, maybe 1/3, 1/3 and 1/3 over days or a couple of weeks (might hold off last 1/3 until after earnings). Earnings coming out next month and always scary buying into this stock before earnings, but seems small FED moves will come toward the latter part of the year, can't see before September, but if it did would be OK. Nothing major, so would only add small bits to earnings toward the end of the year. Dividend payout ratio is still low, so think going forward we can expect increases, but think 2016 is the year we really might see some decent move in the stock price.
Didn't say I took a chance with over $100,000, or more, but was in the low 5 digit dollar amount, and am very happy with results fool. Oh, and since in my ROTH account, tax free transactions, added dividend payers, where currently I have a decent yield on cost of over 7%, where if things keep going OK the next few years, will be more than able to survive with Social Security and dividends, and not have to sell any shares of the dividend payers. Just might give my to children a leg up on their futures. Oh, and lets just say my low 5 digit $ investment added a high 5 digit dollar investment to my dividend payers. Guess your shorts still aren't green, so they must be brown.....fOOL!
Old record with skips it sounds to me. 2001? I got in at an average of $1.18, sold 1/3 and 1/3 on the way up as it passed $5, kind of wish I hadn't, but still have 1/3 and received all my early investments back, nice profits and hold 1/3 still. Who need a dividend when all that happens?
Money made is money made, and I for one am glad I still have 1/3 still making it.
Well, actually it depends. What share they were selling, were they shares received in compensation, and maybe some rebalancing before expiration... No one really knows, Turner and Maupin even acquired some shares (in January and February) prior to selling some. So, don't throw stones. Even I sold some in my retirement account, hold in taxable, but that doesn't mean I don't have faith. Just balancing out retirement/non retirement portfolios.
Hmmmmm, now I feel bad, sold 2/3 of my purchase at $1.18 between 5 and 7 bucks, still holding 1/3. Maybe I just aint a retail investor, I just don't feel stupid. Why you still holding stock you bought in 2001, hell what you pay for it way back when?
Let's just say it wouldn't be out of the question. Close some RAD stores across the street from existing WAG stores, get some real estate, improve margins. Now, unlike nichols, don't think it would be even close to 100% premium, but if they could get it at say a 50% premium, then good deal.
Dang that's a lot higher when I was buying under $4.00, under $5.00 and under $6.00. What has this company become? So buy under $10.00 and sell at $10.50?
Yeah, I could have seen the possibility of an annual increase of $0,02, was, as I think most were, expecting the increase to $0.24, and knew, with lack of FED action on rate increases my hopes of last year to $0.28 were blowing in the wind. Am surprised though, that with expectations being met on the increase, price popped like it has., not that I am complaining, but I had figured the increase was already priced in.
Hmmm, I may bash unsubstantiated posts like most of yours, but you love to personally attack people, which is worse? Oh, and for the record, my ebola illness was actually a missed diagnosis, was only a severe hangover, oh well, maybe, well I am sure your wish will come true, and I die from something, after all none of us can live forever.
Figure, since they own mortgage backed securities, technically they have claim to the properties. Pay out the required distributions, so guess that's the basis for the term "REIT" they fall under. If some how it dropped under $3, I would take a shot and add some for the income side, Book Value appears around $4.20, but don't like how the hedge on rates have turned out to date. Rates rise, then it may move upward some again, but who knows with the Fed? Me, just collect the 10% plus and deploy the cash elsewhere. Both REITs I hold are in my ROTH account, so taxes, capital gisn/losses isn't a tax issue.
Nope, not me wart, I haven't figured out how to value REITs, they different animals. Do own a couple strictly for income, don't reinvest the dividends, and the 2 I own, O and ARR. Some are more interest rate sensitive, others locked into leases with set yearly increases. Me collect dividends, and when I see fit buy a dividend stock that has raised it's dividend for at least 5 years, if not longer, which I currently hold, and reinvest those. No problem finding them in my portfolio, I have quite a few, and so far RF isn't one of them. Few more years, if they can continue, and going by cash flow, they can, increase their dividend, then they might just make the list. Right now though too many better opportunities. Won't add to my ARR, too hedged protecting from rising interest rates, and that doesn't look like it will happen in the first half of the year, and O yeah, on dips I will.
In other words, Uhm, I ain't got one, you just don't wanna be called out for what you are, a wanna be. Just my 2 cents, don't spend 'em all at once. Come to think, you spread your "venom" here, turn about is fair play. Give me a link!
Did that for a bit, I just ended up with S's and giggles withdrawal
Usually on these boards and people hiding behind their keyboards, the ones who tend to do best are the ones that don't brag about how much they make. They are the ones who either are losing money or those that don't invest and just sit behind said keyboard and type away. Maybe start showing some intelligent posts, no, for most, buy buy buy, or this is going to the moon is not concrete DD, and is useless information to any serious, or novice investor for that matter. But your bravado and stupidity is very amusing. I say buy buy buy SPY (only say that cause it rhymes (I am a closet poet).
