BP was absolutely negligent just listen to the #$%$* TV commercials. We've learned. LOL.
I own a position but feel guilty owning it. They fouled the gulf for many years to come. It was all about money.
Dividends are steady and payout is great. Just like a CD but it does go up a little then down a little.
Speaking only for me. I would steer very clear of this stock. Or buy a low position. I am a stranger so this is only my opinion for me. I own a big block it is painful.
China could care less if oil blows the country is already being polluted. Just throw the mess in the water supply. Too many people lose a few win a few.
Kind of sad. They could care less about global warming/pollution or worker harm.
Bull, bull and more bull.
This is safer than a certificate of deposit and pays a heck of a lot more. It may not be a high growth company but the stock varies very little. Bring on the dividends.
Thank you. I am a new investor to ETR and before purchasing wanted to see opinions. Nothing at all.
I buying in over time on pullbacks. Looks like a good solid stock. Was into PG&E sold for a profit. What bothers me about PG&E is the rising amount of solar in the west and the lawsuits on the pipeline that blew up. Now I do have a good sized investment in Con ED 'E'. It has upside and also a great dividend.
ETR has been in business for over 100 years and could not find anything negative on the company.
So maybe you and I can post!
What are your thoughts? The dividend on 'E' is super.
I look at T as a safe secure investment that pays a handsome dividend. It is almost like a CD with little to no risk. My dividends are re-invested. Out of my whole portfolio I lose no sleep with T. But it is balanced T is not overweight in my investment strategy.
I have utmost faith and confidence the people running the company do not want failure to be part of their legacy. These are rich people, well connected, that will not want this be their claim to failure.
Thank you and I agree. If I wanted to discuss Zimmerman or the government it would not be on this board. It is good to share about the stocks we own or want to own.
I'm curious as to why 'T' did not jump with the news of acquisition of another company.
It is fun to read (some) comments. The truth of the matter is none of know the top, bottom, strength, weakness, or future of this company. The soon to be quarterly report will give all of us a peek into the data, and thoughts of where the leadership wants to take this company.
I'm long on NLY.
Why? Not enough real world data to support the claims especially from the talking head experts. Average people like me can't sway the market to my benefit they do this everyday. Not illegal by any means.
NLY has a plan none of these executives want this to go down as a failure. I don't know them, never will, but at their level there is the power issue and of course money. This company is not a startup company and in the past 10 years has had to face pressures.
Nope. One of the largest with a very long track record and of paying dividends. look at how jittery the market got when uncle ben first talked. And besides NLY management is not dumb they know rates are going to cycle up and down. I'm not short won't lose anything unless I sell. We will know more in a couple of weeks. I'm sitting tight. You can do as you wish.
i agree almost as safe as a "CD". Dividends are awesome, I sleep well at night knowing it swings very little either way. Safety. I'm down on paper (a small amount) and re-invest the dividends.
