    As I always say:
    There's 2.77 BILLION shares outstanding already.
    We sure as hell don't need 5.54 BILLION.

    Collect your dividends & forget about a split

    "Why exactly are we running this BGS vs KRFT experiment……?
    *******************************************************************
    I wanted to challenge you because even though I own BGS, I'm not very confident on it's returns going forward. Dividend payout ratio already over 90.00% - Many of the 'orphaned' brands they purchased look like they shouldn't have been 'adopted'.

    Growth by acquisition can only go so far. Eventually you have to have organic growth. (And not just in a couple of your brands)

    You on the other hand, think it can do no wrong, plus you took every opportunity to dismiss KRFT stock & in a roundabout way, say I was unwise for not selling it.

    So let's just forget the bet altogether.
    I'll keep track of the returns & post them here occasionally just for the fun of it.

    "I think you said all dividends go to cash & are excluded from our calculations.
    Is that what you still want….?
    ************************************************************************************
    I thought we could include dividends in our calculations, but not reinvest them in more shares. They would be held in a 'cash' account.

    For instance: If we go by the hypothetical $10,000.00 we invested at the close on Friday June 19th, it would look like this.

    $10,000.00 divided by 29.74 = 336.25 Shares BGS *You*
    $10,000.00 divided by 87.20 = 114.68 Shares KRFT *Me*

    On 07/30/15 when BGS pays the .34 cents, you would multiply that by 336.25
    336.25 x .34 = $114.325

    On 7/31/15 KRFT will pay .55 I would do the same thing.
    114.68 x .55 = $63.074

    Hypothetically, if both stocks were still at the exact same purchase price, on July 31st you would be in the lead by $51,251
    Your $114.325 minus my $63.074 = $51,251

    Your account total would be: $10,114.32
    Mine would be $10,063.07

    Considering the 'special situation' with KRFT in the coming weeks, maybe your idea of waiting until August 1st would make more sense.

    But for now at least, let me know what you think about my dividend's in cash idea.
    I'm going to be very busy this week, so bear with me on any replies.

    Regards

    "great potential profit if you had sold in December or January"
    ******************************************************************
    True
    But I'm going to hold WEC long term & use it ((along with my other dividend stocks)) for income.

    "how will the special $ 16.25 dividend be handled at the time of the merger …?
    *************************************************************************************
    I'm guessing it will be handled like any other dividend. On the ex-day, krafts stock price will begin trading $16.50 lower than the previous days close.

    Not sure. I'll post here when I find out.
    From the kraft web site (the message board is no more)

    Stock and cash transaction, with Kraft shareholders to receive a special cash dividend of $16.50 per share upon closing, and stock in the combined company representing a 49% stake in the new company.

  • The Exelon vs Duke vs Southern vs Wisconsin Challenge: Update #020

    Disclaimer: I sold all shares of Exelon @ $36.575 on June 30th 2014

    
At approximately 11:21 AM on Friday August 1st 2014, I bought a hypothetical 100 shares each of EXC WEC SO & DUK & placed them in a watch list.

    Prices paid
    
DUK 1OO @ 73.09
    EXC 1OO @ 31.78
    SO 1OO @ 43.45
    WEC 1OO @ 43.75

    
I picked Wisconsin energy to be the best performer & bought shares in my brokerage account.

    

Returns As Of Thursday June 25th

    Wisconsin +4.67%

    Exelon: +0.79%
    Duke -3.30%

    Thought maybe you missed this. Posted it in the' Own Any Kraft Part II' thread

    Since you like B&G foods, & I like Kraft, let's have a little fun.
    FYI: I'm still holding 'all' my BGS shares.

    Let's assume I bought $10,000.00 worth of Kraft at the the close Friday June 19th 2015
    & you bought $10,000.00 worth of B&G at the close the same day.

    $10,000.00 divided by 29.74 = You own 336.25 Shares BGS
    $10,000.00 divided by 87.20 = I own 114.68 Shares KRFT

    To keep it simple, lets assume we both take 'all' dividends in cash.

    BGS pays it's next dividend on 07/30/15
    KRFT pays it's next dividend on 07/31/15

    The bet is simple.
    Whoever has the highest total $ amount 2 years from the purchase date (((((June 19th 2017)))))
    gets $50 from the other.

    Come on, let's have a little fun!

  • While NHI has done well for me, I'd also like to diversify a little.
    HCP compares favorably on 1-2- & 5 year charts, but lags badly on a 10 year.
    34.01% Versus 108.16%

    I doubt NHI will repeat that outperformance in the next 10 years.

    I like HCP's outstanding record of annual dividend increases. A dividend aristocrat
    This is important to me as I just retired & since I'm a long way from S.S. age, I'll have to rely on dividends for a substancial amount of my income.

    There's many other healthcare related reits with similar performance numbers, but there's zero activity on their message boards.

    So here's your chance salesmen, sell me on adding HCP to diversify.

    Kraft last paid it's dividend on 04/24/15
    Will we get another payment on July 24th ?

    ATTN Jack Let's make a friendly wager.
    Since you like B&G foods, & I like Kraft, let's have a little fun.
    FYI: I'm still holding 'all' my BGS shares.

    Let's assume I bought $10,000.00 worth of Kraft at the the close Friday June 19th
    & you bought $10,000.00 worth of B&G at the close the same day.

    $10,000.00 divided by 29.74 = 336.25 Shares BGS
    $10,000.00 divided by 87.20 = 114.68 Shares KRFT

    For this 'hypothetical' bet, we want the 'total' return.
    Since it would only complicate matters, (figuring out the cost basis for re-invested dividends) lets assume we both take 'all' dividends in cash.

    BGS pays it's next dividend on 07/30/15
    KRFT last paid it's dividend on 04/24/15

    So the new kraft heinz should pay it's next dividend around the same date as BGS. If not, we'll have to make adjustments.

    The bet is simple, whoever has the highest total $ amount 2 years from yesterday (june 19th 2017) gets $50 from the other.
    Come on, let's have a little fun!

    Looks like you made a good move.
    I'm a long term investor & use the dividend as income.
    I tried to write covered calls that day, but the premium wasn't there.

    A bit of advice: Don't get so emotional in your posts.
    You made what looks to be a smart move, just state your case & move on.
    It's called taking the high road.

    Predicting a 15% decline, referring to yourself as some kind of oracle, & calling the stock a dog just makes you sound like a little child.

    Your welcome!

    I sold my entire position today.
    No ill will towards company.
    I only blame myself for trying to catch a falling knife.

    Thought I'd learned my lesson after doing the same with bank of America.
    Will keep STB in my watch list.

    Good luck

    I think we could all agree that at $170.00 this stock was overbought.
    I didn't sell & never will, but about a year ago, I started taking the dividends in cash.

    I'll consider reinvesting dividends if it dropped to around $130.00

    Minnesota regulators approve Wisconsin Energy-Integrys merger
    Jun 12, 2015, 4:23pm CDT David Schuyler
    Milwaukee Business Journal

    The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission has approved Milwaukee-based Wisconsin Energy Corp.'s proposed buyout of Chicago's Integrys Energy Group Inc., leaving only the state of Illinois as the last state that has yet to clear the $9.1 billion combination of two large upper Midwest utilities.

    Also:
    Wisconsin Energy declares pro rata dividends in anticipation of Integrys acquisition.

    This new dividend level represents an increase of 8.3 percent over the current quarterly rate for Wisconsin Energy shareholders and – per the merger agreement – will bring Integrys and Wisconsin Energy shareholders to dividend parity.

    Who doesn't like an 8.3% raise!
