Arrow Financial Corporation (AROW) I know it's a Financial. But this one never stop the dividend nor did it take the bail out. AROW only pays like 3.80% plus a 2% stock dividend per year. Not bad .If banks are on their way back as some people say. Their stock dividend may come back up also. The only other one I know of is TR ,but I don't hold that one. Only pays around 1% cash dividend. But has a stock bonuses .
I have other dividend paying stocks that look good to me. But without stock splits.
Best of luck to you.
Thanks to 90% of Alliance's contracts being priced through 2015, the company has been able to produce steady results. The stock trades at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 10.5; a long-term growth estimate of 14% gives ARLP a price/earnings-to-growth (PEG) ratio of 0.73.
Perhaps the most impressive aspect of ARLP is its dividend yield of 6.3%, which has been fueled by a run of 22 consecutive quarters of dividend increases. ARLP still has a payout ratio of only 50%, which means Alliance has plenty of room to further boost distributions and invest in growth.
6:18 am Nordic American Tanker: Letter to shareholders from the Chairman & CEO; improved market conditions for co's Suezmax tankers (NAT) : "In my letter to you one month ago, December 10 2013, I pointed at the improved conditions in the Suezmax spot tanker market. The strong development has continued into 2014. We do not predict spot tanker rates. I would note, though, that we are very pleased to see this strongly improved rate picture for Suezmax spot tankers... Below are the rates as quoted by Fearnleys Shipbrokers January 9 - yesterday...
Market estimates for five different routes January 9, 2014:
•130 KT - WAFR/USG $57,500 West Africa / US Gulf
• 130 KT - WAFR/USAC $59,500 West Africa /US Atlantic Coast
• 135 KT - BSEA/UKCM $76,500 Black Sea / UK/Continent
• 130 KT - CROSS MED $76,500 Cross Mediterranean
• 130 KT - MED/USG $55,500 Mediterranean/US Gulf
The cash break-even rate for the NAT vessels, including administrative and financing items is about $12,000 per day per ship. A strong tanker market does impact the dividend payments to shareholders in a positive way."
Just call me a fool then....Or could it be you that is the fool ? Well, time will tell.
Best of luck to you.
PS: What stock are you replacing this one with ? As someday I would like to look back at this post.
