Over 10 years of investing experience, I use dividend reinvestment to accumulate stocks. I view myself as a Long-Long investor, very rarely (if ever) making short term trades.

    2:22 PM European carriers rally as continental equities move higher and an EU summit in which budget rules are taking center stage gets underway. FTE +6.1%. TEF +3.8%. TI +5.2%. VOD +2%. BT +5.4%.

    MDLZ

    9:14 AM Mondelez International (NASDAQ:MDLZ) declares $0.13/share quarterly dividend, in line with previous. Forward yield 1.84%. For shareholders of record Apr. 01. Payable Apr. 15. Ex-div date Mar. 27.

    WMT

    9:39 AM Does a better-than-expected report on retail sales (I, II) add another layer of complexity to Wal-Mart's (WMT +0.6%) claims on the impact of delayed tax refund processing? Though CFO Bill Simon made a compelling case at a BofA retail conference yesterday that U.S. consumers have changed their spending habits as they wait for refund checks, the trend doesn't quite register with reports from other retailers. The answer may be in just how many sales are fired up by consumers who cash their refunds at WMT stores and spend on the spot.

    MDLZ

    11:18 AM Mondelez International (MDLZ +0.5%) authorizes a share buyback program of the lesser of 40M shares or $1.2B worth of stock. The company says its primary purpose of the repurchase plan is to offset dilution from equity compensation initiatives.

    EBIX

    9:26 AM Ebix (NASDAQ:EBIX) +14.2% following its mixed Q4 results. The fact shares were well below Oct./Nov. levels led to lowered expectations. Gross margin was 80.7%, +50 bps Y/Y. Opex +22%, nearly even with revenue growth. $3.2M worth of shares were repurchased, and more repurchases are expected in Q1, leading to a slight reduction in share count. No revenue/EPS guidance in the PR. CC at 11AM ET (webcast).
