  • Cemig: Brazilian Electric Utility For The Value, Growth Or Dividend Investor [View article]
    I'm ditto on your position in CIG and have the same concerns. Their compensations have paid my original investment cost, so now I just wait and watch from a relatively safe position, all the while continuing to collect dividends.

  • Schlumberger: The 28% Dividend Growth Is Repeatable [View article]
    Been hearing this news for many years. Still waiting for SLB to break through $105 and stay there or improve on that price. It seems to be a price it can't sustain. My hopes are that your projections are right because I've been long SLB for many years and still waiting for the big payoff.

  • General Electric Shareholders Will Do Fine Without Radical Cuts [View article]
    Tim : It's always a pleasure to read your well written and researched articles. With all you've got on your plate, I just don't know how you find the time. But, as I was told many years ago by my manager, " If you need something that's important done, give it to the person who's got the most going on, because that's the one who will find the time to do the task." Also, thanks for your prospective on SLB. I have been hoping that you would write about them for some time. That too, was a well written article. You are indeed an amazing young man.

  • Schlumberger: A Unique Opportunity For You To Get 12-14% Annual Returns [View article]
    Thanks Tim for the long awaited valuation article on SLB. I've been long SLB since 1994 and can relate to the ups and downs you speak about. I've averaged out at $58.89/share. I intend to remain long, especially with your projections for continued growth. As you mentioned, SLB is not a dividend hold, but a growth hold. My big question is : when is it wise to sell this stock ? I was thinking that when it's share price gets to where they split the stock, I'll sell half of my holdings and hope the rest will continue to rise. Any suggestions ?

  • CEMIG: Headline Risks And 10-20% Dividend Rewards [View article]
    Thanks for the informative article ! I've been long CIG long enough to recoup my initial investment because of the generous dividends and splits. I'm now even on my investment and would like to hold for the dividends but the road ahead seems filled with pot holes, so I equivocate and hope for the best. If they ever recover I'll have a great source of income from their dividends. And if they don't recover and go belly up, I still won't have lost too much. So, I'm just going to ride it out.

  • Oilfield Services Overview: Alpha Absent At Schlumberger [View article]
    Shiv : Thanks for a great article on SLB, which I've been looking for on SA for a long time. Because I, along with many analysts, consider SLB a solid company and therefore, a solid long term investment, it's been a major holding of mine for a long time. In fact, my shares average out at $56.85 so, I'm very pleased to see SLB get back in price, and based on your analysis, I'm expecting even greater price advances in the future. While it's not a great dividend payer, it's like a bank as far as dollar security goes.

  • General Electric: These 2 Growth Markets Can Propel It Higher [View article]
    Nice article Amal ! As I patiently wait for GE to begin raising in price again, from the $ 15.41 I purchased it for back in Sep, 2011, I'm also collecting in excess of 3% in dividends. As a long in my portfolio, I can stand it when it takes a
    " breather " every once and a while, as long as it's projections are good. And from reading your article on GE, it looks like they have a, pardon the pun, "bright " future.

  • General Electric: An Opportunity To Buy? [View article]
    rubel : We all know that Warren is a multi-millions by investing in a company that he didn't have confidence in for the long hall. After all, he didn't become a billionaire by making foolish investments. His faith in GE gives me confidence that I made the right decision when going long GE when it was @ 15. So, when it gets to 30, I'll have doubled my money and gained in excess of 3% yearly from dividends in the mean time. I might feel differently if the 2008 debacle that affected GE had also affected me but, that not being the case, it's hard for me to hold a grudge for something that had no affect on me. Maybe I'd feel different if it had.
