I doubt $12. The bottom is in or basically near. The problem is....going up. Me suspects CHK is down here for a while. Unless.....unless....some big guy steps in and buys the whole kit and caboodle. Maybe even a rumor.......can get it off the bottom.
Really. And you're the only one who seems to have noticed. All those analyst out there and they don't know this? Hmmmm.....
Our only hope here is that someone comes along and puts us out of our misery and buys CHK for $25.
If you have a gain....I had about a 50% so far...I would schnitzel a little profit. I sold 1/3 of my position last week. Let the rest ride. I'm not adding. ONNN has moved up nicely, but I think it's fully valued right now with an optimistic forward look. I might buy more on a dip. If I did not own any ONNN yet, I might start a position here, but wouldn't take a big bite at almost $13#$%$ will come back some, before it moves higher. Earnings season is over. The market is at all time highs (nearly). I'm trimming my sales these days and looking for better bargains. I own ONNN in a tax deferred account so taxes are not an issue for me.
I have owned NLY for 4 yrs and have an annual avg. return of 2%. Dripping all my dividends. Same as a 10 yr bond or thereabouts. It's a lousy stock but I haven't wanted bonds. I still say NLY over 10 yrs beats the 10 yr. that's how I've always looked at it.
Sorry LL shareholders. I'm watching the 60 Minutes story. I'm not a shareholder but many times the last couple years I wish I was.
But not now. Book value is around $4/ sh. I wouldn't touch LL until it hits the teens. Either 3x book or .5 sales. Sales are going to drop like a rock.
This is sad. I'm not short either, but I wish I was. I could see LL down 20% this week.
The 52 week high was around $25.50 almost exactly 1 yr. ago. We will soon be setting new 52 week highs. The dividend is very safe. I'm thinking the market will start to show QUAD some love eventually. It's a ways off, but I believe QUAD will rise until the dividend return is around 4%. I could see a $30 stock over next year or two.
This is much more of a widow and orphans stock. It is not a growth stock. It is a value/income stock. Enjoy.
Healthy response today. This is a big, well known company. The quarterly report with the bump in the dividend is reassuring.
Near term? I dunno. Long term, BHP will be just fine. Upside far, far outweighs any more downside risk...as long as overall market doesn't collapse.
They generate around $200 mil. in free cash flow and pay about $60 mil in dividends.
The stock is fairly closely held by insiders. They appear to be running QUAD as much for dividend income as for growth. I'm fine with that.
The recent miss on the buyout of another printer (forget the name of the company) the RR Donnelly came in a swooped up is also fine. QUAD didn't get into a bidding war. There will be other opportunities.
If the company chose to buy in shares vs. upping the dividend that would be fine by me. I also own RRD and have been pleased with that one as well.
This is an underappreciated sector. It pays solid, reliable dividends. Better than bonds. More opportunity for capital appreciation.
Buy the stock, hold it and DRIP the dividends.
You'll be fine.
I don't know who or when...but it will be for a much higher price than it is now. The barriers to entry for what SATS provides is astronomical. You just can't build and launch satellites and get them leased easily. At roughly, $5 billion market cap this would be pocket change for a big Telco or Bandwidth user. Think AT & T, Verizon, Netflix, GOOG, Amazon. Why buy the milk when you can own the cow?
Their earnings will not be a blowout. But they may be "better than expected" because the expectations are so low.
I believe ABX bottomed a while ago. It will slowly, slowly keep going up....Eventually it will spike up and then everyone will jump in.
I own more ABX than I should and am sitting on significant losses. But...I'm not selling. Not for years.
My brother's, sister-in-law's next door neighbor's father has a close friend who knows a guy who is a big shot tort lawyer's golf buddy...and he says he's heard that HIPP directors and CEO are not going to be sued. Yes...anybody "CAN" be sued. But that doesn't mean they "WILL" be sued. And these guys won't.
I don't think Jimmy Rogers is selling. I'm betting he might be buying more today. Me? I am not selling. I'm bummed that it will take awhile to get back to mid 20s now...but it will. They don't give out .40 special dividends if they think their business is not growing. It is.
If it gets back to $18...and it very well might...I'll gobble up some more. I think this will be $40 in a year or two.

You won't see 179 this week. It might touch $190 in AM. Back to 205 by 1pm. Close at 195-200.
I'll buy at 190 if it gets there before 11am.
It will be below 150 this year however. Maybe lower. There is gong to be a big flush sometime. My guess ....July. Whole market is going to give up 25% at some point.
That sounded awful. Worse than even this pessimistic shareholder thought it would be.
The stock will probably go up now.
