  • Chicago Rivet & Machine Co.: A Debt-Free Cash Cow On Sale? [View article]
    Thanks for commenting, Tbeartoo. Yes, they do issue a lot of special dividends. Not a bad thing at all, since they have a lot of cash on hand and no debt. A special dividend allows them to return cash to shareholders and not have to be viewed as "lowering" the dividend afterwards. Thanks again for reading.

  • Chicago Rivet & Machine Co.: A Debt-Free Cash Cow On Sale? [View article]
    Thanks for commenting, ferjen. I would say that being dependent on the automotive industry, it can be a very cyclical company. Also, as a publicly traded stock, it is always subject to p/e compression (and expansion). However, being debt-free and profitable during a trough can really set a company up for success. Contrast that with small, highly-leveraged oil exploration companies that are struggling during the trough of the cyclical oil industry right now. They simply can't weather the storms very long. Thanks again for reading & commenting.

    Exactly, Nick. This is when they need to step up the repurchases.

    Yep, looks like the majority of the y/y change was in the previous three quarters.

    Wow, $IBM bought back 7% of it's diluted shares outstanding over the past year.

  • Kiosks and customization on the menu at McDonald's [View news story]
    I wonder if MCD could license it to other fast food restaurants. On the one hand, they might not want to help the competition, but on the other hand, it would be a tremendous additional source of revenue.

  • 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!
