Now its $45.82.
Interesting how I was less confident as the price was dropping but still knew I had to buy more.
Ive also been reinvesting dividends along the way except I missed the first one.
First bought on 1/28/13 then bought 125% at $40.51 on 10/4/13.
And reinvested 3 dividends along the way.
So far, so good for my first utility. Always used to swing for the fences but haven't been doing that lately and
keep sitting on more & more cash from prior harvesting of other stocks.
I expect I will hold this for a very long time.
Where else can you get this kind of dividend with this kind of reliability for so long ?
Just wish they would stop having cost overruns.
ADAMSVILLE, Alabama – Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, the latest discount retailer to enter Alabama and the Birmingham market, will hold a grand opening Thursday.
Ollie’s has built its business by selling brand closeouts at discounted prices in departments like books, food, housewares, toys, electronics, clothing, furniture, flooring and seasonal items.
The Adamsville Ollie’s Bargain Outlet will be on Veterans Memorial Drive in the former Big Lots.
Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is one of America’s largest retailers of closeouts, excess inventory, and salvage merchandise. Our 160 “semi-lovely” stores sell merchandise of all descriptions and some beyond description.
You’ll find lots of famous brand name goods in every department, like housewares from Rubbermaid, Mirro, Ekco, and Anchor Hocking, toys from Mattel, or sporting goods from Igloo. Ollie’s buyers scour the world looking for closeouts, overstocks, package changes, manufacturer refurbs, and irregulars.
Much of the merchandise comes direct from the finest manufacturers in the country and abroad. For instance, if a manufacturer makes too much of an item, or changes their packaging — Ollie’s will buy the discontinued or overstock items. So you will always find famous brand name products at Ollie’s...but it could be last year’s color or pattern that traditional retailers won’t sell.
We also work with insurance companies to buy salvage merchandise. If a store in your neighborhood has a fire, Ollie’s may purchase the inventory and put it in our stores at drastically reduced prices! Yes there may be a little smoke on the stuff, but it’ll be so cheap that you won’t mind!
Ollie’s has also liquidated major retail centers, working very closely with financial institutions. When companies liquidate, the bank will often dispose of the remaining inventory and turn it in to cash. Ollie’s brings the goods back to our stores, or runs the liquidation sale on site.
Folks, everything you buy at Ollie’s is covered by our 30-day “No Hard Time” Guarantee. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase — return it within 30 days for a full refund (with sales receipt).
They are opening soon way on the other side of Bham. So I wont be going anytime soon.
“Perhaps more importantly, we believe there is considerable cause to doubt the intentions of the Dissident, an entity which has continued to submit very fluid arguments, flatly ignore resounding defeats and harshly lament Cracker Barrel's performance and strategy despite the fact that the Company has generated twice as much value for shareholders as Biglari has been able to generate for its own investors.”
Well, its time for them to start earning $1.20+ per share.
That possibility seems to keep getting pushed out farther & farther into the future.
I wonder if HALL had some big weather related claims ? We had some pretty bad flooding in my area after it rained as hard as I can recall in a long time.
.But, HALL doesn't do business in my area and I haven't kept up with stuff elsewhere.
DWCH is not my kind of stock so I cant really offer much of an opinion.
ZLC wasn't my pick, I followed someone else in and got lucky.
Doesn't AWX have lots of cash ? Couldn't they have borrowed on better terms ?
What exactly are the terms of the private placement ?
And yes, I am an accredited investor.
I just have a problem with deals that favor some over others. Like long term shareholders getting nothing.
A rights offering might have been more fair.
But then, when has Klingle ever cared about being fair ?
Dual classes of stocks. never a shareholder letter.
We will be better off when the man drops dead.
8:00 EDT - Proxy filings in recent days by Zale ahead of a shareholder vote on Signet's proposed acquisition show ZLC management had goals for the next 3 years which were "significantly above the Street, and we believe there is further upside when SIG" gets its hands on the jeweler, says Sterne Agee. "We continue to see very- compelling" earnings potential resulting from the combination, adding management's planning assumptions ahead of the merger "demonstrate the underappreciated recovery potential" at ZLC, which nearly didn't make it through the financial crisis thanks to its debt load.

HLF agrees to handcuff the lies & misrepresentations their sellers use and in exchange, the FTC doesn't shutter this scam of a company.
Then let the rest of the world get duped.
That's what I hate...the information disadvantage that all of us that don't drop everything & fly to NYC once a year.
To me, it should require an 8k with a transcript of the meeting or an audio replay at least.
Down to $21.00 from a $21.97 high
I saw that and thought I posted it. Its pretty darn shameful what he is doing to us. Like 10+ million a year isn't enough for him.
Disappointed that the senior citizens making up the board pretty much rubber stamp anything he wants to do just like the old board rubber stamped whatever the prior CEO wanted to do.
Im still long but ticked off about his end-around deception.
But, at the time time, he isn't sucking out millions via options & grants that happens elsewhere so he might even be cheaper in the long run.
I think I read a couple of directors did. They wont buy the stock but they buy the PP. And what exactly is the deal with that anyway ?
