  • Does A Low Payout Ratio Really Mean More Secure Dividend? Some Signals From The U.S. Stock Market [View article]
    I agree with the conclusion, but not based on the proposed causality. Earnings are based on accrual accounting, dividends are paid in cash. Surplus cash is based on Free Cash Flow --which is the net of Net Operating Profit after Taxes (NOPAT) minus reinvestment in Working Capital and Fixed Assets. There are many moving parts, other than earnings, that influence dividends.

  • Bank Of America: The Turmoil Mounts [View article]
    The name of the CEO was Coulter, not Colson. To make a point you have to be accurate with the facts.

  • Sell-Side Analysts Weigh In On Herbalife - Return To Growth Is A Unicorn [View article]
    Is there any quality control over analysts' research? I guess neither Pivotal Research or Canaccord Genuity care much about their reputation.

  • Earth To Meredith Adler. Come In Meredith Adler. [View article]
    Thank you Matt. One would think that Barclays Bank is watching; and that it would use its prerogative to stop Ms Adler's ridiculous analysis and recommendations. This is negative advertising for Barclay's wealth management business. Unbelievable.

  • Herbalife Must Recruit 20 Million To Support Current Valuation [View article]
    Matt could not be clearer. I'd take his side of the bet if my life depended on it. I am curious to see how Icahn and Stiritz unwind their HLF investment.

    At yesterday's (2/12/15) close of business BofA/Merrill Edge removed UBNT from their Equity Mid-Cap Research Portfolio because UBNT's market cap fell below the minimum requirement for inclusion in the portfolio.

  • Bank Of America: Are You Ready For Some Big Upside Potential? [View article]
    "Originated $15 Billion in Residential Mortgage Loans and Home Equity Loans in Q4-14, Helping Approximately 41,000 Home Owners Purchase a Home or Refinance a Mortgage."

    "Helping Home Owners? This is laughable.
    I am going through the refinance of a mortgage loan with BofA; no money out, just to lower the rate and shorten the tenor, high credit scores, impeccable credit record, very low loan-to-value ratio, Merrill Lynch client, etc., etc. My experience: nothing short of terrible. The bank is obviously in overreacting mode to the loosey-goosey underwriting standards leading to the financial crises of 2008.
    In my experience the correct edit is "Alienating Home Owners", not "Helping Home Owners".
