  • Some heavy hitters eye Coca-Cola [View news story]
    If they buy Keurig or Monster, then they did it in a way that's not good for KO shareholders. By buying only a small portion, say 1/5th of the companies, the remaining stock shot up and would have to be purchased at a substantial premium compared to that initial bloc of stock.

  • Intel Announces Increase in Quarterly Cash Dividend, 2015 Business Outlook at Annual Investor Meeting [View article]
    I sold a bunch of INTC stock when they failed to increase their dividend. If they had only done it last quarter, they could have kept their streak going and stayed on the CCC list. Too bad.

  • L Brands Reports Record Third Quarter 2014 Earnings [View article]
    Looks like shares outstanding continue to creep higher. Seeing outstanding shares decrease would be the icing on the cake.

  • RiceBran Technologies Reports Financial Results for Q3 2014 [View article]
    They are diluting their EPS loss, sort of a reverse of buying back shares to increase a positive EPS.

  • RiceBran Technologies Reports Financial Results for Q3 2014 [View article]
    "For Q3 2014, the Company recorded a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $3.7 million or a loss of $0.47 per share on 7.9 million weighted average shares outstanding. This compares to a loss of $2.1 million or $1.83 per share on 1.1 million weighted average shares outstanding in Q3 2013."

    Wow, their shares outstanding increased from about a million to about eight million!

    Revenue up 8%, net income up 22%, shares down afterhours? What's wrong with people?

  • Procter & Gamble: Transformation Continues As Duracell Batteries Are Set To Go [View article]
    This isn't a spinoff, like how COP spun off PSX and shareholders got to keep both. This is a splitoff, and shareholders have to choose to exchange PG shares for Duracell shares. I don't think most investors like splitoffs, but I agree that they do like spinoffs.

  • Procter & Gamble: Transformation Continues As Duracell Batteries Are Set To Go [View article]
    I still don't understand why PG shareholders would exchange their "higher-margin" PG shares for the "underperforming" and lower-margin Duracell shares.

  • P&G Will Reward Shareholders Through Portfolio Consolidation And Cost Saving Measures [View article]
    "The company has also announced that they will be parting with their very well known Duracell battery brand. The thought process behind this has been to drop brands that are not profitable to the company and focus on creating growth on the most profitable products for the company."

    Are you saying that Duracell wasn't profitable?

  • Starbucks EPS in-line, misses on revenue [View news story]
    In the Company Updates section of the press release, they say "The company repurchased 10.5 million shares of common stock in fiscal 2014."

    But then, on the financial tables, it shows 2013 shares outstanding of 762.3 million. The 2014 number increased to 763.1 million.

    Is there a typo?

  • Starbucks Reports Record Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2014 Results [View article]
    In the Company Updates section, they say "The company repurchased 10.5 million shares of common stock in fiscal 2014."

    But, on the financial tables, it shows 2013 shares outstanding of 762.3 million. The 2014 number increased to 763.1 million.

    Is there a typo, or are they diluting shareholders and taking credit for doing the opposite?

  • Southern's Kemper clean coal project to cost 3x more than earlier estimates [View news story]
    Typical green energy project.

    Why didn't the article explain the reasons why it's going to cost more and take longer? I'm curious to know if the reasons should have been anticipated when they prepared their forecasts for the project. This is a huge miss.

  • Procter & Gamble to shed Duracell [View news story]
    I'm curious, if PG has identified Duracell as an underperforming or low-margin brand, why would PG shareholders want to exchange a higher-margin PG share for a lower-margin Duracell share?
