    Great dividend and Wal-Mart very likely to be a January bounce stock.

    One other major advantage India has is that it has ALREADY done what China needs to do relating to dependency on its domestic markets. India is not dependent on other countries for its economic well being and has a full, flourishing and rapidly growing consumer base with average incomes rising in virtually every discipline.

    Also India isn't one of those countries wasting resources running around the world building itself up as an expansionist military power.

    As to India experience working with USA, Europe, Japan and Australia, it is blatantly clear India provides ADDED value to its partners instead of trying to take short cuts. From that, India is far better understood as a more trustworthy partner that isn't in the business of stabbing its partners in the back. That comes from decades of democratic freedoms along with capitalism from the small peanut seller on the sidewalk to its burgeoning industrial base.

    Chicken and egg report

    I think they will report $2.75 next quarter which is still excellent.
    CALM balance sheet remains one of the best on the stock market.

    Do you think lower production levels on floor husbandry vs caged might impact egg production levels?
    I've read statistics show caged layers produce more eggs per year.
    Do you think higher losses due to stained, cracked and dirty eggs on floor operations impacts final volume?
    I've read studies showing losses are as much as 1% greater on floor operations.
    Also, egg number production of white egg producing birds is higher than brown eggs.
    Total impact of moving to floor operations from caged systems could very well impact total prices in the end... I would think.

    Longer term, as more and more folks seek alternative sources of safer (than red meats) highest quality protein /essential amino acids found in egg whites, demand should rise.

    Side note: Poultry / egg producers in France are recently demanding higher prices for eggs and threatening a boycott if prices do not rise. I know little about France politics or how farmers can "demand" higher egg prices. Lots of unions in France associated with things like eggs.

  • Sonic CEO said they have huge expansion plans within USA.
    For example company has no restaurants open yet in New Hampshire and recently opened in Rhode Island.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Correction 2009 to 2015. Sorry about that typo.

  • Great January bounce candidate.
    Also Macy's has already started taking action to turn the company around as it always does.
    Note it was down like virtually all stocks in 2008 due to the economic collapse.

    When a quarter comes out with significantly greater accounts receivable than accounts payable on a quarter to quarter basis, the subsequent quarter is often a positive surprise.
    In this case:
    Receivables dropped by $23 million from prior quarter.
    Act payable dropped by $593 million from prior quarter.
    Above is positive delta of $570 million.

    I buy small eggs whenever I find them due to their superior quality.
    You are right, most Americans don't buy them because they don't know.

    Another tidbit just proven by research:
    Egg production is increased when LED lighting is used. Important because it is also cheaper.

  • When small eggs start showing up in droves on your local grocery shelves, 6 months after the bird flu epidemic starting around mid April 2015, you can then begin to compute the time it will take to full recovery of the egg supply. The main adjustment will need to be for imports (which I've not followed). It will take another 6 to 7 months or about mid April 2016 to have full production of large and extra large sized eggs produced in USA.
    We thus have a period to go during which CALM can clear its balance sheet of all debt obligations, pay hefty dividends and produce excellent earnings. When this is over, it's flu season again....

    Please post when you see those small eggs showing up.
    Small eggs are by far the best quality eggs because they have less water in the whites and stand up like a charm when poached or fried. They don't go all over the frying pan or water and are thus look pretty for your guests... which is why gourmet restaurants often serve them.
    Small eggs are harder to peel than larger eggs when boiled because they are full of egg white and not water.

    Balance sheet looks like hell.

    You need to take a class to learn how to read a balance sheet.

    We know for a fact that people and animals will eat to survive.
    We know for a fact that animals depend on plant materials to eat.
    We know for a fact that plants require various amounts of nitrogen and potash to survive.
    We know genetic engineering has not yet replace agronomic / horticultural methods of plant food production.

    We do not know if investors are foolish enough to believe the above not to be facts.
    We do not know when the feds will increase borrowing rates.
    We do not know if, when rates will exceed the 6% dividend yield of POT.

    We do not know what that ukulele company will do next.

    I do suspect when rates do increase and those rates are less than half the dividend of POT, POT stock is likely to rise.

    Yes. A stock with 0.00 debt, 7.50 cash per share and new contracts in the bank.
    About to release a major new consumer product.
    This is exactly the type of stock you want to own in a potentially rate rising economy.
    IRBT wins whether or not rates rise or not.

    Earnings estimate?

    Wow! Thanks all for the earnings estimates discussion, particularly all the factors involved.
    Very educational and valuable input in the posts below.
    If earnings full year attain the $11.76 now displayed, the dividend yield will exceed 6%.
    Netlosstoo FY 2016 $12 estimate appears to be achievable.

    Next Earnings?

    Add 3 months to their last earnings release date and you'll have the next earnings date plus or minus a few days.
    Likely to be in week ending October 24th, the week after options expiration.

    Why anyone would sell DUK at this extreme value price is beyond comprehension. The dividend is good and will continue to be good to go no matter what interest rates are. Clearly DUK dividend exceeds any hope for AAA rated bonds for a very long time. Clearly also is the extreme valuation of this stock based on fundamentals. No worry here!

    Analysts estimates are always high on CALM by up to 11%.
    On that basis, earnings should be 85% of their CY estimate of $11.01 which is $9.35.
    That will result in a dividend exceeding 5% leaving cash to eliminate their small debt.
    When analysts always provide ridiculously high estimates they destroy analyst reputations.
    In any case, anyone made any estimates based on some fundamentals / costs / prices?
    The only numbers I have a handle on is retail egg prices which are higher by 50% to 100% depending on store.
    Corn prices are down but CALM may have hedged that.
    Does CALM hedge egg prices or have long term contracts on eggs?
    With McDonald's change to offering all day breakfast, the total demand for eggs is going to rise.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
