Like I said, great company, great future, great dividend. I hope those who gave a thumbs down on my post have second thoughts about this company.
great company, great future, great dividend. Buy and hold until the story changes....and don't forget to reinvest the hefty dividends. I bought my shares in 2003 at $ 10.71 a share and will be here holding a bundle when I doe. My grandchildren will love it!
Thank you traders for paying the capital gains taxes that keep our great country great while I compound my wealth reinvesting...
Yes, I agree with you. graphene will be a disruptive technology in many fields in the future. I am sure ERII is aware of this and will work to either works with it or work around it somehow. I have held this stock for well over six years and am still underwater. It pops around all the time. Hopefully management has settled down and will find a way to make the O&G segment work. Desal. is fine but ERII's part in it is a tiny, almost inconsequential fraction of building a plant and plants take a decade to get approved and implement and to have 100 or even a thousand built would hardly make ERII a successful company.
The hopes I had for ERII have been tempered by the realities of business. I am hanging on but don't have much reason to.
I am looking at 390% profit on my shares which I bought in 2003. Sensible, profit minded investors buy and hold good companies for decades. This stock will be in my portfolio upon my death with all dividends reinvested and my profits compounding. Thank you traders for paying tax on your profits as you move in and out of stocks...you help keep our tax coffers filled. I do not pay any capital gains taxes because I do not sell. Real wealth is through compounding decade after decade. Common sense for the common man. Good luck to all!
Gee, shucks, it's too bad they announced last year that they were SELLING 30% of their retail outlets...and then what about the rest???
Having top management dump their shares seems like an insane move. I have written IR about this and not yet received an answer. No insider in their right mind sells their own stock if things are going well.
Thank you. I am sure I will not sell but appreciate your concerns and insight. Since I am a long term, (decades) buy and hold investor I will be staying put. I will keep my buy rating as I want others to have faith as well!
'Based on Pfizer's projected dividend payout of $1.12 per share, it's in line to return nearly $6.9 billion to shareholders this year. Yet, if Pfizer holds true to its forecast of returning approximately $13 billion in 2015, it has another $6 billion in cash to work with. This means Pfizer could have the luxury of foregoing its buyback and giving shareholders an extra $0.95 per share. At a hypothetical $2.07 in full-year payouts, Pfizer would be yielding about 6% and could be one of the most sought-after dividend stocks.'
