I agree whole-heartedly: 14% return is very, very good. To ask for more, IMHO, is to be too greedy and ask for trouble.
What you are missing is that the world has nearly mined out most of it's Uranium. In Russia, they use the cores of nukes (recycled) to power their reactors. Nuclear power is such a bad pipe dream, eliminate all subsidies and see how long it lasts: it wont. it's like sports teams: without taxpayer subsidies, they wouldn't exist.
It will correct. Short sellers were trying to drive price down. Short selling should be illegal.....
Same here. I bought JE for the dividends and I have to keep that in mind when I look how the short sellers and/or simple minded drove the price down.
I've been looking at OIBR for a while now and will probably wait till after the first of the year. The problem with brazil is it's gov't: it has enough natural resources to compete with the US, just like mexico. The problem, just like mexico, is it's 2nd world country due to gov't corruption. So that make certainty about business transactions suspicious. Did you know that in Brazil, gov't officials cannot be prosecuted for crimes while in gov't and/or crimes they commited during gov't service (no, really, I was so shocked when I heard that I actually looked it up and verified it) therefore, the gov't could possibly screw shareholders on dividends or whatever and unless you are going to fly to brazil, shoot some (not recommended!!!!) get arrested, executed and start and international crisis, keep that little fact in mind because you won't get justice.
There are two factors here: first, if the economy picks up speed, more crude will be used for various reasons, second, and a competing factor, is that fracking is producing ungodly amounts of oil, so that pushes supply up and price down
I was doing some research on companies that were inexpensive but good dividends. I found this company then found on research that it has lost about 95% of it's value in the last year. what the heck happened to this company???
Do you mean this stock or just in general Cramer's abilities? I think he's fun to watch, but that's all....
I would agree. My opinion is that a lot of REIT's dropped recently, especially after Bernake stated a couple of months ago that someday maybe they will begin thinking about increasing interests rates. CYS will recover, we just have to wait
Fair enough. Question: if I believe (and I just may) that the stock will continue it's track back onto 10-12 per share (not quoting any here), then it would seem that it would still be a decent buy, even if I could only buy 1/2 as much since the price doubled (roughly)
Just remember we have a three branch gov't with a pres and bi-cameral legislature. You cannot hold only one party/person accountable. They are all in it together and they all created this mess.
When I got out, it appeared that PGH was selling a lot of assets to cover the dividend because all the drilling flooded the market and Natgas price dropped and PGH had to pay their bills: by all means, please correct my information if it is incorrect. that being said, what's up with this Lindberg thing you are talking about?
twocats: can you give me to work with? I'm a small investor who has been steadily, of slowly, increasing my financial intelligences over the last two years. I know dividends are better than capital gains, but understand how people troll the message boards to talk up or down a stock. I prefer slow and steady vs. let us get rich in two weeks theory of life.
