I am an eclectic dividend investor with motto "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash" applied to companies I invest in. I like to read /and read a lot - did you look on my SA photo 8-)? / including...

  • Proposals for Dividends in Danger. Year 2010 (sample) 0 comments
    Mar 26, 2011 10:21 AM

    This ia a short (and probably bad) example that support my poposal 3/26/11 at 9:33am - see discussion of

    M.D.C. Holdings Inc. (NYSE:MDC)

    Disclogure: I bought MDC in Dec 2004 and sold in Nov 2010 because I thought that MDC dividends were in danger.

    MDC was dividend growth (NYSE:DG) stock in 1994-2005 and froze dividends to 0.25c/share in 2005. Company had unstable cash flow before 2005 but on multi-year basis it was positive. After 2004 the cash flow increased initially and I hoped that company returned to DG regime, but then it became smaller and even negative in 2010 (according their Q3 data) and my hope dissapeared.

    NB This is sample only - please do not discuss.
