    I love Altria, and so happy we established a very long position last year... PM should be coming shortly too! Long MO & PM.

    So many of my friends want flashy "high flying" stocks -
    rather than concentrating on consistent and reliable dividends.
    I tell them they are crazy. I love slow long term compounding.
    I'll stick with MO, KO, DEO, and a few others !

    I actually expected a 3 cent increase, so this 4 cent increase is a nice surprise!

    Very welcome! And since my MO is in a DRIP, the added dividend will buy more shares. Always a nice development.

    What a company! Twenty five years ago my father recommended MO to me, and he was right!

    25 years ago my bank account was a piggy bank. Still, $MO looks interesting after this recent pullback. I'm very tempted to buy some shares... what are the odds of touching $30 again?

    Anything can happen this fall, and probably will.

     

    Keep the faith.
