  • Dividend Champions For January 2014 [View article]
    I agree with you Okie. Swinging for the fence won't improve your batting average. If what you use works for you, the worst thing to do is change strategy. A book written by a contributor here at SA Stephen Weiss, called "The Billion Dollar Mistake" has many examples of world class stars who have done just that, they detracted from their original game plan.

  • J.C. Penney Stock Weak/Bonds Strong: What That Tells Us About December Comps, And Valuation Update [View article]
    JCP is probably good for a long term play. I'd like to see more articles on this. Did management at JCP retire the debt they had @ 7%? It might have been more than the 7%, not absolutely certain. The company seems to have corrected the mistakes they made in the retail marketing end and if they can get their financial numbers in better shape, the price of the stock should improve.

    CL is certainly consistent. That chart for it looks like a staircase.

    Well, it can, but don't count on it. T is a serial aquirer.

  • Can Vast LTE Coverage And New Pricing Keep AT&T Ahead Of Competitors? [View article]
    This is a good article Ms. Robe. You are right, T is not going to sit idle. It is difficult to assess what their next move will be after the tower deal and the sale of their Conn. assets. Europe seems likely. T has put money into India, but the results of that are not easy to come by. Congrats on your passing the CFA II exam.

    I am right now taking a look at all of the issues that have outperformed T this past year. When I find myself complaining about what could have been, I force myself to walk by any bank posting their .75% rates for CD's, and the 5% plus that T pays doesn't seem too shabby.

    Mr. Fish, Thank you for sharing your very impressive and extensive list with everyone. I feel the same way about those payout ratio numbers. Like splitting hairs. I'm not an accountant, but under IFRS standards, dividends can be paid from operations. If a company is using GAAP, they would come out of financing activities. It depends on the method the company uses as long as it is consistent. Have a great trading year everyone.

    notaexpert, Spot on! Unless T comes out with some earth shattering news that none of us are aware of, they have never fallen below the top ten div payers on the DOW. It's a widows and orphans stock. Their payout ratio is sustainable. Right there in the cash flow statement for all to see - dividends are paid from Financing Activities. The pension re-funding is still on hold until the DOL makes their decision, but that will not affect cash flow. Rookie should question that broker's motives. In the meantime, this was a very good article by Mr. Poulos. Happy New Year.

  • AMD: So What Now? Part 1 - GVS Revenues [View article]
    Nice article Mr. James. Well done. I believe the simple fact is AMD had to clean up their balance sheet to gain some respect. They have proven that over the last two quarters. Good trading to you.

  • S&P 500: Do Not Buy This Dip [View article]
    That idea will probably be kicked around for the greenback as well, but you and Misho are right about it being the preferred currency. The Dow has risen quite a bit since Mr. Desai wrote this article. It would be nice to see another one published by him during the next correction. Good trading to you.

    Yes, They are going to make the notes out of some type of plastic fabric. Supposed to be more difficult to counterfeit and lasts longer. I heard this on the news and thought it was a joke, but no.

  • Near A Market Top? Then Buybacks Aren't So Smart [View article]
    The reasons for buybacks are numerous. Some of it is done to sell to employees under ESOP. Sometimes a company may think they are underleveraged, they borrow money to buy back shares to increase their debt to equity ratio thus increasing their ROE, giving more returns to their leverage. But in order to build more and expand business and hire more people, the demand has to justify that expansion.
