  • Intel beats by $0.02, beats on revenue [View news story]
    CFO commentary says that diluted shares outstanding is flat to prior year at 5.1 billion shares, but he doesn't list the exact amounts.

    However, if you dig into the P&L that they just released, it shows that diluted shares outstanding increased from 5,106 billion shares to 5.123 billion shares outstanding.

    It's frustrating to me that their opening paragraph on the press release touts how they bought back 74 million shares for over $2 billion. So, that means this shareholder money went to the execs...again.

  • IBM's Hidden Source Of Value [View article]
    Hi, SamAnon. I meant to say large company, not new company. Thanks for catching that. I consider the yield solid because it's payout ratio is very low at 21% and it's well-covered by over $9/share of cash on the books.

    Thanks for reading.

  • Deere & Company's Hidden Source Of Value [View article]
    Hi, James. I took the largest companies by market cap from the "Farm and Construction Machinery" industry within the "Industrial Goods" sector. I realize that there are many ways to categorize companies, so you could make an argument to select different competitors for comparison. To me, this seemed like an intelligent way to provide some relative comparison for the sake of discussion.

    Thanks for reading.

    Also, real quick, I don't consider this click-bait. That certainly isn't my intent. I simply like to see increasing dividends and declining share counts. I use a consistent format to write about these, but my motivations are sincere. I own these companies, and I try to highlight some of the reasons in my articles.

    Thanks for reading.

    Hi, DoctoRx. Thanks for reading.

    Looking 5 years out, analysts expect EPS to be higher at an annualized rate of 8%. EPS will probably decline this year, yes, that's true, but looking further out, EPS should be much higher. Part of this is due to share buybacks, part of this is due to revenue growth or other factors, such as expense reduction.

    Hi, PotomacLord, fellow shareholder. DE will pay out more in dividends for 2014 than it did in 2013, which was more than it paid out in 2012, etc... This is how the CCC list is compiled. DE is a Dividend Contender on the list, and many DGI own it for this reason. Thanks for reading.
