    Going to the meeting on Tuesday. Have never been to a stockholders meeting before and should be interesting. My opinion; at least so far is that in the short term Casablanca would be better for CLF ( and short term to me would be less then 2 years) and in the long term the current regime would be best. But the ultimate decision to me is the price of iron ore and the question is where that will ultimately end up. A higher price benefits the current regime and a lower price benefits Casablanca.

    Sentiment: Hold

    With their good cash flow, can repay on debt and keep the dividend going. Excellent buy around the 28 price.

    You made a good buy. I am going to wait till after the earnings announcement Thursday. It will inch up a little bit till then. And go back down after the announcement. Figured I can add some more at 27.99. The old retailer in me.

    Before everybody says rhe world is falling apart...wait for the actual earnings call on the 26th. The dividend is staying intact as stated today. Patience is needed for the long term. Bought it at 16.30 in 11/08 and have steadily added since then. The reinvested dividend has paid off. This could be an oppurtunity for all to add. The food aisle is changing and not just to CAG. I think too many investors in this or any equity have what I call the netflix disease. Everybody thinks their stock should shoot up everyday and increase in value 100% each year. CAG is high in debt and that is being paid down. That dividend will only increase % wise. Let's not go crazy. After took a huge fall couple of years ago, the organics have shown weakness in the food industry, and Whole Foods have slipped quite a bit lately. Tell you what...short CAG and see what happens. Let it hit 28. I for one will be buying. Good luck.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    I appreciate the dividend that NYCB pays and have profited it through the years. But, it hasn't raised it since 2004. Wonder what it would take to raise it?

    Sentiment: Hold
