  • Don't Expect Pitney Bowes To Slash Its Double-Digit Dividend Yield [View article]
    That's what I'm thinking (re: ~6%). That's the level that my limit order is set for.

  • Don't Expect Pitney Bowes To Slash Its Double-Digit Dividend Yield [View article]
    That's why I exited pre-market this morning. I want to see how Mr. Market treats this news without having to hold the stock thru the carnage (if there is any). I had a small capital gain on it anyway. (shrug) This may well be a long term positive for the company, but that doesn't mean that the market won't stomp on it some in the meantime.

    Oops! :-) PBI cut the $1.50 dividend down to $0.75 this morning. Oh well, I didn't expect it either...at least not this soon.

  • Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF -4.1%) succumbs to a bout of profit-taking, giving back a chunk of yesterday's 15% run-up. Probably not helping is news that chief strategy officer Steven Raguz is exiting the company effective May 1. [View news story]
    Profit-taking, or perhaps some getting a whiff of reality again. Sell the pop and thank your lucky stars you got one to unload on.

    This was a very pleasant surprise when the email alert for it showed up yesterday evening. I already had as large a position in LINE as I wanted, but this will likely persuade me to add a bit to it. Love those monthly dividend payers, especially quality ones like LINE.

  • Twinkies will be back on the market by late July and the rest of the well-known Hostess brands will follow later in the summer, according to a Hostess Brands exec. The quick turnaround out of the bankruptcy bin has implications for Flower Foods (FLO) and Grupo Bimbo which were hoping to jump into the snacks food void with their own brands. [View news story]
    Ah, civilization is saved...for the time being, at least.

  • Moving at lightening speed and foregoing debate, the Senate last night unanimously voted to approve a bill that allows the Department of Transportation to use unspent funds to cover the costs of air traffic controllers and end the furloughs that were prompted by sequestration and have caused widespread flight delays. The House could take up the legislation today and is expected to approve it. [View news story]
    They're citizens, too, last I heard. But the fact is, this administration is doing the sequestration cuts in as irritating a fashion as possible because President Petulant is still trying to beat the Republicans over the head with an idea that he came up with. So, we still have multi-million-dollar golf vacations for the Prez being funded, but no White House tours for school kids. Try spinning that one positively, bbro, like all the crappy economic numbers that you insist smell like roses.

    It looks like there were several. Or they hacked Twitter so thoroughly that they could send tweets that looked as though they were from different sources. I hear/read lots of people (and sometimes organizations/companies) complain about having their Twitter accounts hacked but how much of that is real and how much is urban legend, I don't know.

    The one you have above even reads like a fake. The one I've seen from the AP feed looks a lot more like a real news outlet crafted it - something like "2 explosions at the White House; president injured" etc. without any detail. What's scary to me is that so many believe anything they read on Twitter (and other social media).

    Actually, it was the AP's Twitter feed...everyone else just rebroadcast it.

  • Seadrill Vs. Transocean: Which Is The Winning Bet For Now? [View article]
    The normal 1st quarter one, yes (it would have been paid in March). Regularly scheduled dividends will resume on/about June 24.
