Institutions own most of STKL (compared to us little retail investors). Fiera Capital is a new holder, but one of MANY institutional holders. Fiera's 959,383 shares represents approx. 1.44% of STKL's outstanding shares.
sno is just another example how the US educational system is failing our youngsters.
1000 contracts? Why am I seeing today's volume @ "only" 501 contracts? Bad data from YFinance (again)?
The CRBC board was somewhat active compared to FMER's.
It's been one year since I received my FMER shares via CRBC, and it was a good year to own FMER. Are there any other former CRBC holders out there or did "everyone" sell CRBC before the deal closed or their FMER?
One year total returns (4/16/13 - 4/16/14):
Midcap Financials Index 13.32%
S & P Midcap 400 Index 20.63%
What will the next twelve months bring?
Another example of why, IMO, investing in this sector is best via a diversified fund rather than picking a few individual issues.
I agree with what you quoted. The key is companies that split do historically do well. I contend that this is the case whether their shares cost X or X/2. Good companies perform well, over time their shares do well and then they may split their shares. Splits are an end, not a means.
"Information is not always available when you include many of the perks so you are wrong there."
No, you are wrong.
Refer to page 37 of Colgate's proxy statement, dated 3/26/14.
You will find "Summary Compensation Table" which includes "All Other Compensation" (second to last column, with the last being TOTAL compensation).
Finding this info took me two minutes; see the information was and is "readily available".
richard, remember RIF!!!!
I wrote: "I certainly can sympathize with those who are or will be affected."
Does that convey that I "do not care about Americ (sic) and it's future"?
You were all over the place with your initial post. Not many, if any, Americans are not moving to India, so why oh why did you write about the lack of "safety and environmental standards" in Mumbai?
Next time try harder.
Sorry that the holidays are "tough" for you.
Certainly you were not referring to THIS holiday week?
From Forbes 4/14: "Easter Indicator Negative But Stocks Do Well During Good Friday Weeks"
"Stocks Do Well During Good Friday Weeks"; that is from a historical perspective, doesn't mean this week will be stellar.
Simply Google "Forbes Easter Week" and voila!
See, you're not the only one who likes to share; problem is you only share the same front running, paid to pump text "service".
Speaking of Google, have you yet to search "Seeking Alpha Dream Team", given your profession, it's right up your alley.
I thought the S. A. post was very informative; it was not full of opinion, it cited the 10-K and how PHOT may not be accurately reporting its compensation expenses. If you read the 10-K, you probably would come to the same conclusion. Yes, it's all just opinions, but IMO the S.A. piece made pretty clear what is most likely the cause of the halt.
That's the best you can do?
Clearly you can not refute what I wrote, since it is correct; therefore, you have to resort to a child-like response.
"mine is bigger than yours" Nice to see you employ that tried and true SCHOOLYARD technique--YIKES!!!
I would not be surprised if your PG div is larger than mine, but I own quite a few dividend paying stocks unlike you who apparently owns (begrudgingly) one dividend paying stock.
It must kcus to be you.
It appears that you are already questioning your choice of abandoning WFM..."there is no place else with a salad bar on my drive home" BUMMER.
We are all entitled to have an opinion; you have stated yours. Fantastic.
You may be right about the volume, but remember: there's no free lunch on Wall St.
Buy PG on April 22 and you get the .6436 per share dividend BUT, on ex day, all else equal, PG will be .6436 lower!
Same goes for those who are short: they have to pay the div, but if they were to cover the next day, all else equal, they would be able to cover .6436 per share lower.
Re possible $2.9B share buy back: possible, but that would only represent approx. 1.32% of the outstanding shares.
The issue with basing bonuses on earnings is that earnings can be massaged.
For example (totally different industry and company size) Diamond Foods top exec. massaged the company's earnings (presumably) so that their earnings based bonuses would be large. Worked for a few years and, well, both are no longer at DMND and DMND was on the ropes for awhile.
