    I am very glad you raised this Jon!

    Having had a recent encounter with the editorial board at Seekingalpha I, a Dutchman living and working in London currently solely reporting at Seekingalpha on FTSE350 London listed companies (with a secondary listing in the USA), with regards to my article about 2012 third quarter dividend pay-outs of FTSE350 companies, many of which having a secondary listing in the USA, they still refused to recognize it as a 'Premium Article', due to 'lack of US content' and "what would the benefit be for a US investor to have access to such an article".

    After an email exchange, I just gave up; instead I published it at http://bit.ly/yO4kya

    Let me (and if the editors are reading this) know whether such an article should have passed.

    Many thanks

    Steven

  • Vodafone Results Below Par But Dividend Increase Maintained [View article]
    Cheers RW

    While VOD CEO releases comments that VOD's position in VzW is under review every now and then, and very much depended on exit price, I expect the current status quo to remain for some time to come. Thank you for your views about timing of dividend announcement.

    Query about the date and reasoning of the Verizon dividend payment

    Sitting here in London, I would be interested to hear from the US-focused Seekingalpha community whether they believe the Verizon dividend announcement to pay a dividend before or on 31st December 2012, was (partially/very much?) driven by the potential impending 'Fiscal Cliff' taking place early next year.

    Furthermore, as the payment is earlier than 'expected' do you expect another payment in the not too distant (when?)

  • Vodafone Results Below Par But Dividend Increase Maintained [View article]
    VOD has not provisioned for any loss in the long running tax case in India as it appears to be confident of a successful outcome.

    Thank you for your feedback, Russell; I agree.

    I have emailed Seekingalpha.com with the request for them to amend the title to "Vodafone Results Below Par But Dividend Increase Maintained"

  • Vodafone Results Below Par But Dividend Increase Maintained [View article]
    Hi Russell

    Good point. Perhaps being a bit too cryptic here. Last year Vodafone stated that its dividends would rise 7% 2012/2013. That's what is exactly happening, so from that perspective they have maintained their dividend . . .hmmm . . . stated dividend policy, and therefore (luckily!) no surprises. Sorry for the potential confusion, probably talking 'double-Dutch here, being a Dutchman

  • The Case For Investing In Africa [View article]
    Great article!

    There are some potentially great African - currently relatively undervalued - African oil and mining companies listed on London (AIM) markets including Tangiers Petroleum, Polo Resources, Goldplat, West African Minerals, etc.

    DYOR!

    That's very kind of you ineficientmkts; why not have a look at some of my other articles, if relevant, or indeed, if you are interested in the concept of investing in dividend paying companies when they are historically undervalued, at our site: Dividend Income Investor.com

    Addendum

    Rosneft beat analysts' expectations on Thursday by reporting a more than doubling of quarterly profits to $5.8bn in advance of its acquisition of Anglo-Russian rival TNK-BP.

    Rosneft will be responsible for more than 40 percent of Russia's production and approx one-twentieth of the world's oil output by the time it take command of both the British and Russian stakes of the country's third-largest oil firm. Completion of the transaction is expected in the first half of next year.

  • Verizon Is Fairly Valued But It Offers A Fat Dividend Yield [View article]
    At what valuation may Vodafone want to exit Verizon Wireless?

    As per Robin Bienenstock comments "With Verizon trading at all-time high multiples; US investors appearing to suspend disbelief on the impending deterioration of the US wireless market; and an urgent need for major strategic change in Europe, there may never be a better time for Vodafone to relinquish its 45% of VZW"

    I await your comments at http://seekingalpha.co...

  • Vodafone Remains A Better Option Than Verizon [View article]
    Has anybody considered that now may be an opportune moment for Vodafone to exit Verizon Wireless?
