  • Invest And Grow Rich With AT&T [View article]
    Actually, I don't know if you are looking at the correct chart. When I pull up a 10 year chart of T, I see that the stock was trading in the $30s in 2002, it then fell around 20 for a couple of years, then went to $40 around the five year point and now it's back in the $30s. This entire time, the company has raised dividends, so capital preservation was preserved and above average dividends were paid. You must have a distorted view.

  • Can Xerox Make A Comeback? [View article]
    There's usually a story that goes along with the graphs. The consistent earnings growers have consistent stock growth over time. I always look at fundamentals, but I also present a graph because it is a visual that paints a picture of the fundamentals.

    It's above average earnings growth that I'm looking for. That's what drives stocks higher than the S&P 500. Unfortunately, XRX grows earnings at below average levels, therefore the stock will remain lackluster. There are many other consistent stocks out there that I would prefer to invest in. I like companies that provide a CAGR of about 15% (dividends plus earnings growth).

    I have to answer this somewhat frequently. I write multiple articles per week - almost everyday. I would have to be a multi-millionaire to own everything that I'm bullish on. There are many great above average stocks out there, I don't feel like I need to own all of them.

    310,

    We're only looking out 1 month for the stock to remain below $75. You could also pick a higher strike price if you wish. After June expiration, you look at selling a different out of the money call for the next available month. The market is still on shaky ground right now with European debt fears.

    Hi Rick,

    That's a great analysis. I just think you have to view XRX as somewhat of a spec play because of the company's spotty track record. Just look at a stock chart from 1980 to present for IBM, KO, MCD, PG, etc. and you'll see consistent growth, with XRX you see it fall off a cliff after 2000.

    I'm sorry but I don't know any person or business that is not interested in finding new ways of saving money. It doesn't matter if that involves reducing paper, printers, etc. - the important thing is improving the bottom line. Saving money might be an old play, but so is Les Miserable and people still love to go to see it. Old plays, if they're good will always remain in style.

    Globalx - excellent answer - it's not where the company was, it's where it's going.

    wb: I love the put sell idea.

    9.59 is confirmed. It may actually be 9.5876, but they rounded up.

    The company was mentioned in the DRIP section on the AT&T website, so I thought it would be useful information for potential investors.

    Sure, that's a great alternative - but many investors may prefer the automatic nature of the drip.

    48 is the trailing PE - that was due to poor performance in the past few years. 13 is the forward PE. Also, the fact that the stock is trading at only 1.89 times book value per share is what makes it undervalued.

    Rosado,

    On what basis do you consider FB under valued? Certainly not by PE, PEG, and Price to Book ratios.
