"could be $35"
are you aware that at $35 the div at year end will be 5.71%
therefore I think you can forget about $35 without something major causing a huge market scare/drop.
Bernie, I think you did a wise thing/buy. 2.5K @ 39.62 SWEET !
mike.morrie, yes 37.45 was a fluke, vz ran up to 53 at the same time. Was due to accounting changes that the IRS okayed for another telecom company and they popped way up. I was one of the lucky ones who sold quite a bit of my T at 37.25
As I said, I will be shocked if we were to see 37.50 in 2014. Wish it would happen but don't expect it to.
Now that firms have loaded up on it, someone must be pushing to buy it. Was that our under $40 chance? It sure popped. Glad I didn't wait for $35 to $37 to add some.
gutboy, years ago I heard Pisani referred to as "gas can Bob", nothing has changed except a lot more gray hair. He is about as bad as they have. He should hope that clown Brian Sullivan sticks around, he's the only one worse on CNBC.
not as bad as this:
Cramer on BP....this won't be popular but buy BP and it was $55 when he said that.
Cramer on BP.....I am not sure they will survive and it was $25 when he said that.
$30 drop and he says that !!!!
nuff101, KMI came from me. I like it but would never margin anything I like and never advise anyone too marging but I like kmi for money you don't need for a few years. Div is set to grow, business is set to grow, Look it over. There is time to buy under $40 where it is now.
specifically he say utilities and he said it to me, a reply to me. SO is the highest I can find and it's about 4.8%.
Now he says SPY basically. That is a spin of what he said yesterday. I still like KMI. If you buy KMI here, you get more than 5% in 2015 when the deal closes by y/e '14. I have about 3X as much T as KMI but i am buying the dips on KMI. Check my posts, I don't push stocks, I just think this one is a good one for div and growth.
jwaltz, cramer and everyone else has perfect ideas when you look back but Cramer has said AAPL should have bought NFLX too and Cramer did say that a few years back. Hindsight is always perfect. Hey I shouldn't have sold my CMGat 400 either or my FB at 41 or or or but #$%$ happens.
nuff101, so you wouldn't borrow a fixed loan for 4% and get 5% on your money elsewhere? why not? how do you think banks make money? I will say I never margin.
That's what I say too, VZ over T. VZ has a good CEO. No matter who you are, you have to wonder HOW DID T CEO ever say 4B gift if we don't buy tmus? Who risks 4B ???????? That's a lot of money, a LOT!
i prefer my last buy at 31.87(Feb 27 2014) over now at 34.6. I would wait if you want it lower.
smalls_62, name them then.................SO at 4.7% highest I see. T giving me 5.57% on 68K.
