    "Though cigarette volumes continue to decline in the US, the profit pool of tobacco makers has not thanks to material pricing gains."

    Is this misspelled or something?

    My tea leaves indicate that the packing was not solid so I am going to try my invertebrate, fibula charts to see if the thigh bone was bisecting the ankle bone.

  • AT&T And 'Dead Money' [View article]
    The upgrades will take tremendous amounts of money. The dividend increases will be minuscule. The competition will be intense.
    The payoff will be negligible!!
    My opinion.

    Dead money is also in a house that is paid off. I know, I know. The comfort it gives one.... lol
    But with loans at 4% you could get some money out and earn a safe 6 1/4% and take care of that loan. The loan would be tax deductible and you stock dividend would be taxed at a lower rate.

    Yes! I do it all the time. The only sure way to make money on T outside of dividend.
    You could write a Jan 2017 call option for a strike price of $40 for approximately .50. That gives you a profit of $1,750 minus comm.
    You still get the T dividend until the shares are bought @ $40. They can be bought at anytime after you sell the option.
    I recommend this date as anything closer with the amount of shares you have will be to low a profit and in my opinion the shares will never reach $40. The profit on the option is declared in 2017 . Actually when you file your returns in April 2018.
    If in a Roth IRA, nothing to declare. If in a TRADITIONAL IRA, the same.

    Agreed, but because you did not go ALL IN on one shot the amount of shares to write options on my be minuscule.
    Not taken into account is that the dividend is taxed as well as the option monies.
    Not taken into account is the inflation factor also degrading the length of returns.
    In totality, it is definitely, DEAD MONEY!!!
    12,000 sh and have a Jan 2016 call written @ $40

  • Bank Of America: Still Disappointing Shareholders, But For How Much Longer? [View article]
    The Institute for Supply Management’s gauge of manufacturing activity dipped to 51.5 in March, from 52.9 the month prior. The reading came in below Wall Street’s expectation for a shallower fall to 52.5

    The private sector added 189,000 jobs in March, far below the 225,000 jobs economists expected, according to payroll processor ADP.

    Today's news. What great economy?

    Kay
    Again.... tell me what Obama did for the stock market! What you say has no facts to substantiate what you say.
    Brought back the economy? He did what to bring back the economy?
    What made the market ascend was a combination of factors.
    1. It could not get any worse.
    2. Excess people were terminated.
    3. Excess buildings were sold
    4. Loans at high interest rates were bought back
    5. Salaries were reduced.
    Many more smaller thing were accomplished but this is a few that come to mind.
    The economy now is stagnant to down. More food stamps. Lower car sales. Housing purchases below average with the lowest interest rates in history.

    Bank President Salary (United States)

    A Bank President earns an average salary of $102,935 per year. A skill in Commercial Loans is associated with high pay for this job. Most people in this job have more than five years' experience in related jobs.


    (Reuters) - Bank of America Corp's CEO Brian Moynihan was awarded a 73 percent pay increase in 2012, when the institution resolved crisis-era lawsuits and its stock was one of the sector's top performers.

    The $12.1 million pay package likely means that Moynihan was one of the best paid CEO's on Wall Street in 2012, thanks in part to compensation cuts for rivals. Moynihan's base salary for 2013 also is due to rise by more than 55 percent, a person familiar with the situation said.

    I agree, but his statement needs clarification. The President CAN improve the stock market but I do not see how he did anything for it.
