  • Lonestar Resources Is A Great Value Long Term For Your Portfolio [View article]
    Four consecutive up days, including today when almost everything is down. Anybody else care to call bottom? I hope so, as I doubled up on Monday at $0.127.

    Just spoke to a close contact from within the company. The original 9K were layed off in 2014 Q4. The new 11K have also already been layed off during 2015 Q1. Total of 20K and all have already been cut. The media really got this all mucked up.

    No, the first bullet point says another 2K, then the second bullet says another 11K. Not clear at all.

    If that's true then this is a horribly written article, becase that is not what it says. Actually, I can't really make out what it says, so it's horrible whether you are right or not. Apparently the ability to proof read and edit in todays "instant information" age is a lost art.

    Calm down charlie. You don't want to burst a vein or anything. I didn't ask anybody to look up anything. I had already done that and was not finding the info. Since others here had previously discussed the split of the dividend, I was hoping they might already know what I was asking. This is a DISCUSSION forum. I'm pretty sure that if I'm looking for this info, that others are too. As I stated, I'm perfectly capable of looking up past events and making ASSUMPTIONS. I was hoping to find something a bit more concrete, since I had never read about the split dividend anywhere except here on SA. It has obviously caused a lot of confusion, since virtually every website that I have seen is presenting the OHI yield incorrectly.

    The unfortunate part of a discussion forum is that anyone can post anything, whether they know what they're talking about or not. Thank you charlie for reminding me of that downside.

    charlie, I don't believe that is correct. The Q1 dividend was split into a two month div of $0.36, and a one month div of $0.18 as discussed above. Only the two month amount went ex-div on 3/27. I'm assuming the one month portion will go ex-div around 4/27, but was looking to see if anyone has confirmation.

    You really ought to be sure that you know what you are talking about before you try to share info over the net. Any DG investor knows how to look up past dividend dates on Google or their broker's website. I wouldn't have bothered here for something that simple.

    Thanks Brad. Great info as always. Current price weakness allowed me to pick up some additional shares today at $38.55. Do you know if the upcoming one month dividend has been declared yet? I'm assuming today's purchase will be ahead of the ex-div date.

  • Does Gilead Have The Cure For Apple-Itis? [View article]
    Bingo II. And I would argue that in GILDs case, their primary product truly is superior to that of their competitors. Whereas in Apple's case, it is not. Through slick marketing and herd mentality, they have been able to convince millions of people (sheeple?) that their products are better than they really are. Also, I think by calling GILD a one or two trick pony that zub is vastly underestimating their pipeline.

    I thought maybe I was just a big dummy, but I see chowder was confused too, so I feel better now. So you seem to be using this situation as a negative for you selecting Fidelity as your broker. Can you provide an actual example of this situation, (a REAL stock that they will not DRIP) or direct us to a link on their website which supports your statement? Because otherwise it is just your experience, and no one else here seems to have encountered this problem. Where did you get the only "2000 companies" number? Let's be honest, if all the major DGI companies can be DRIPped with Fidelity, then this is pretty much a non-issue. Where as you seem to be making it a big deal. I'm not trying to be argumentative, I just want to understand why you think this is important. If a company comparable to T was excluded from their DRIP, that would be important. If only a few micro caps are excluded, then no big deal. Do you see where I'm going?

    gabby, I too am confused by your comments regarding Fidelity. I have been with them for many years. I own AT&T, and they DRIP it just fine. Only stock I have ever owned where I had any DRIP issue was RDS-B. After receiving two dividends, I noticed they did not DRIP. Called them and they allowed me a free trade to add the two shares that didn't get DRIPped. All subsequent dividends have DRIPped. Obviously I only have a small number of companies, so can't say if someday I will run into your situation where Fidelity would not DRIP a particular equity. But I can say with confidence that they do DRIP AT&T in my accounts.
