I purchased 1000 shares of STB on Jan. 9th 2012
Every month foreign tax is paid directly & the remaining amount is reinvested in stock.
Here's the monthly amount (after taxes) that's been reinvested.
04/16/2012 $39.77 Down From Previous Month ?
06/15/2012 $39.33 Down From Previous Month ?
10/15/2012 $42.08 Down From Previous Month ?
11/15/2012 $41.38 Down From Previous Month ?
02/15/2013 $41.97 Down From Previous Month ?
03/15/2013 $41.67 Down From Previous Month ?
How is it possible for the amount to go down on certain months ?
Does the dividend tax change on a monthly basis ?
I'm pretty sure the dividend payout has been the same every month.
$0.0463683 per share
Every month I have more shares than the previous month & unless the tax percentage changes, the net amount should ALWAYS be higher than the previous month.
No, I haven't purchased additional shares, only reinvested dividends.
What am I missing ?
Thanks In Advance!
I wasn't whining about what the price might have been.
If you went back & read it over, you'd see I was simply stating that I knew the price would be considerably higher than it was a year or two ago.
BTW, They do sell 10 piece 'meals' with potatoes, coleslaw & biscuits.
But for some insane reason, they only offer drumsticks & thighs with a 10 piece
Unless there was a shortage of chicken that day, how hard would it have been to grab a 10 piece bucket, put 10 pieces (original recipe, white & dark meat) in it & sell it to me ?
I would have paid up to 20$
That's bad business no matter how you slice it.
If I wasn't a (long term) shareholder, I wouldn't give a ****
So you're saying you would have accepted a 12-piece bucket with only 10 pieces in it for the price of a 12-piece bucket?
Let me explain this in such a way, that even someone with a severely limited mental capacity (such as yourself) might understand it.
I wanted a 10 piece bucket of chicken. That's all. No More, no less
I went to KFC last week. All I wanted was a 10 piece bucket of original recipe.
Didn't know how much it would cost, only that it would be substantially more than the $9.99 special as recently as a year or so ago.
So I ask for a 10 piece bucket. "You mean the 10 piece meal" replied the employee.
No, I just want a 10 piece bucket of original recipe I replied.
"we're sorry sir, but we only offer 8 & 12 piece buckets of 'chicken only"
I said whatever, & left
A customer is willing to pay & you turn them away ?
Really bad business
With a stock like this, when I want to add shares, I just put in a bid well below the asking price. Sometimes it takes a day or 2, sometimes longer, but the order almost always fills.
I also use 'simple' technical analysis & add when I think it's oversold.
I'm in this strictly for the dividend.
It's obvious that no matter what any of us say, you think this stock is extremely overvalued.
Agree jnj is overbought, but what r u gonna do ?
Sell & put the money in fidelity cash reserves at 0.01%
That's 1 hundredth of 1 percent people.
Thanks a lot bernanke, u #$%$!
All I'll do is take the next dividend in cash if JNJ is still overbought
Ok, I checked it out. You are correct, lots of insider selling.
It's called 'taking profits'
Could this mean 'they' believe the stock is overvalued ?
Does that mean we should all sell, or maybe even short it ?
I don't have a crystal ball, so I don't have an answer.
If this is a huge concern for you, I recommend one of the following 3
1- Write covered calls on your shares
2- Sell all your shares
3- Short the stock outright (if you have a margin account)
Retired Exelon CEO Rowe Received $23.5 Million in Pay, Perks
By Julie Johnsson - Mar 14, 2013 3:40 PM CT
Exelon Corp. (EXC) paid retired Chief Executive Officer John Rowe $23.5 million for working less than three months in 2012 and completing the power company’s $7.3 billion takeover of Constellation Energy Group Inc.
Rowe doubled his 2011 compensation after retiring on March 12, 2012, three days after the acquisition closed, Chicago-based Exelon said in a filing today.
Rowe’s benefits included a $9 million pension payout, $4.5 million in stock, $4 million in payments related to the Constellation deal and $2.8 million for income taxes.
Christopher Crane, his successor as Exelon’s CEO, received $10.2 million last year, an 83 percent increase from 2011. Mayo Shattuck III, the former Constellation chief executive who succeeded Rowe as chairman of Exelon’s board, received $8 million, according to the regulatory filing.
It was $2.06 a share the day you posted this.
Today it's .44 cents
Hope you didn't buy
