  • After GE's Successful Debt Offering, Is A Dividend Increase Coming? [View article]
    With regards to GE paying out a higher dividend, I think we can see a dividend rise in the first quarter, rather than this quarter.

    With analysts at MS saying that the target for the stock is $26, that does to some degree imply a dividend rise is on the cards as the stock can tgo up and the div going close to below 2%, as many many investors would be selling.

    Scott

    I am an investor in GE and will be buying on the dips as this stock will not be going down to the lows of $12-13 again, I will use $18 as a bottom and see what happens.

  • Insiders Are Unloading These 4 Dividend Stocks [View article]
    i THINK this article is aimed more at Options, than actual Shares. If you take a 5-10 year view, l like I am doing, then this stock will still be around, and maybe nearer $85 range by then. That is due to population and demand to get drugs on the market, alongside with a new CEO, he wants the company to change for the better....

    The dividend of Vodafone is ONLY safe if VZ continue to pay the special dividend!

    Well Dude,

    If you dont own any of these stocks, then you would not be an investor, and therefore a trader. These stocks are good companies that have low debt to equity ratio, and also offer low downside risk to high upper potential.

    They are also stocks that beat the S&P, or have done so over the last 6months.
    You sound more of a trader, than an investor. Further, the higher the Yield there is less likely of any movement in the stock, which has been the case in Vodafone over the last month, as it sits at around 7% with the special div built in.

    I will give you my list and you tell me yours for comparison's sake;
    Balfour Beatty Plc [ construction ],
    Astrazeneca, Glaxosmithkline, Johnson & Johnson,
    Imperial Tobacco plc, British American Tobacco,
    HSBC, Royal bank of Scotland plc, Royal Sun Alliance Insurance, Rexam,
    BHP plc, Rio Tinto, BP plc, Royal Dutch Shell B, Hunting Plc
    General Electric, BAE Systems, Weir Group
    Index-Linked Gilt,
    Unilever,
    Murray Income Trust Investment, Alliance Trust Investment, British Telecom Group, Vodafone plc,
    National Grid plc.

  • Johnson & Johnson Stock Valuation - Part 1 [View article]
    I hold JNJ, but also hold GSK, AZN and NVS. It would be nice if the author had compared the sales and shareprice appreciation to NVS and GSK over 5 & 10 years for the investor, as it also shows that NVS just beats it over 5years followed by GSK lagging behind last. Over 10years it is a different story, as NVS is the shooting star and is ahead by as much as 20% [ scary, but could the strong chF unstabilise the shareprice over the nest 10years? ], while GSK tangles with JNJ below...
    Over 10+years GSK is ahead, JNJ below, and NVS is no where to be seen.
    I believe that possibly the new development of NVS could change over the next 10+years and possibly be propelled up with the acquisition of Alcan et al.

  • 3 New Reasons To Buy Novartis Now [View article]
    You are wrong to a small degree. Novartis has a larger portfolio in emerging markets, than that of GSK. The downside to NVS is the currency risk, and aslo [ the same as JNJ ], the R&D going forward into 2013 with their new pipeline of drugs.

    I have an investment in AZN [ underweight], GSK[overweight], JNJ [overweight], and NVS [underweight].

    Though, I thanks for being possitive on a UK pharmaceutical company...

    Hey CrisArd,

    Instead of publushing random quotes:
    "...it it did not again fall in the 7-9% range."!

    Where do yo get that from. So you are [ assuming ], that the SP could fall to $50?

  • GlaxoSmithKline: This 5% Yielder Is Looking Resurgent [View article]
    You will find if you compare the movements of GSK, AZN, JNJ, NVS, PFE, and SANOFI, that JNJ outperforms over the long term[10+years]. GSK underperforms JNJ by nearly 10%. The good thing about GSK, is that there is hardly any risk associated to it, unlike JNJ and NVS [ currency risk ]. GSK also sells drinks [ Ribena and Lucozade which help during the summer months to propel the earnings, and also is tied to a smoking partnership with PFE.
