  • General Electric: You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet [View article]
    GE STOCK PRICE IS ALWAYS tied to cash from operations, profit margin, plus other pertinent factors and increases always are a positive for shareholders.

    Of course, the CEO bonus is also related to the same shareholder-centric factors.

    When they go UP, that is a WIN-WIN for shareholders!

  • General Electric: A Bitter Pill To Swallow [View article]
    We are very long time investors.

    Jeff Immelt is NOT the amoral, immoral reckless gambler that Jack Welch was, whose ridiculous policies led GE into near bankruptcy!

    A -5% dividend increase for GENERAL ELECTRIC (GE) is really good news, on top of CEO Jeff Immelt's reiteration of his aim to increase GE Shareholder value and dividend income.

    Unfortunately, you are NOT an owner-shareholder of the world's largest and most sucessful highly diversified American based conglomerate, and also unfortunately you cannot benefit from the announcement of a -5% dividend increase, which is very good news for buyers and current GE shareholders.

    OH, WELL, Good luck in your future choices!

    Good Investors are buyers and holders of GENERAL ELECTRIC (GE) at the announcement of this healthy dividend increase.

    Thank you, David Alton Clark.
    We agree with your very positive assessment of GENERAL ELECTRIC (GE) and the excellent leadership of GE CEO Jeff Immelt.

    "When compared to other Dow blue chip dividend plays, General Electric ranks right at the top of the list with a 3.57% dividend yield and trades at a significant discount to its peers and the industry on a free cash flow basis. Furthermore, I believe the stock offers much more upside than the competition allowing for the opportunity for capital gains. This makes General Electric an excellent total return play in my book."

    Buy and hold GENERAL ELECTRIC (GE) for excellent income and capital gains in the near future.

  • General Electric's (GE) CEO Jeff Immelt Hosts Annual Outlook Investor Meeting (Transcript) [View article]
    MORE GOOD NEWS FOR GE SHAREHOLDERS!

    General Electric (GE) CEO Jeff Immelt:
    "(GE SHAREHOLDERS) like definite -- a vast majority of our investors still like seeing the dividend grow in line with earnings. So I would say dividend aligned with earnings, let’s do a great job of integration on Alstom and see where we are in M&A and let’s use incremental capital beyond that for buybacks. But Synchrony right now is the key driver for the buyback. And between dividend and buyback 40 billion over two years is pretty good."

  • Vector Group: Strategic Moves Likely To Unlock Significant Value For Investors [View article]
    LOTS OF GOOD NEWS FOR VECTOR GROUP (VGR) SHAREHOLDERS.
    As soon as British Tobacco and RAI complete their merger, mega-profitable VGR will be a prime take-over target for the huge vice group.
    "Vector Group (VGR) real estate assets have become more well known lately, which, when Vector consolidated its financials with Douglas Elliman earlier this year, likely was the motivation for the large move in the share price. However, we still think the market is under-appreciating the potential for the company. For one, the tobacco business is still growing, despite investor perceptions, generating significant free cash flow and supplying investors a fat dividend payout. Secondly, the company has significant sidecar investments within its New Valley LLC but outside of Douglas Elliman, that are not represented on their financials. Vector Group could see an eventual profit run rate of $50 million per year in real estate development in a few years' time. We think the company is mulling over a strategic move to realize its full potential. There is significant insider ownership, including by the Chairman of the board Bennett LeBow, who holds 9.23%, and Howard Lorber, the CEO, who holds 3.05% of the outstanding shares. Given two key senior management executives are in such a strategic position, holding such a large share value, it makes sense that they would want to maximize their returns."

  • An Unprecedented Dividend Growth Buying Opportunity Materializes [View article]
    We love General Electric (GE) and agree with David Alton Clark.

    "General Electric has an excellent track record for returning capital to shareholders. The company's plan for increasing dividends coupled with a strong balance sheet make General Electric's stock currently an attractive buying opportunity for dividend growth investors. General Electric is a blue chip industry leader. With the trading at a discount to the industry and its peers, I see this as a definitive buying opportunity for dividend growth investors."

    BUY GENERAL ELECTRIC (GE), the world's largest and most successful highly diversified American based international comnglomerate with a shareholder friendly Board and a shareholder dividend growth and value centric CEO, Jeff Immelt.

  • Why Frontier Communications Shouldn't Pay A Bigger Dividend [View article]
    When management increases shareholders' safe dividends on a rapidly growing Telecommunications equity, FRONTIER COMMUNICATIONS (FTR), that is a COMPLETELY POSITIVE MOVE!

    No reasonable person should ever rerspond in a strangely Quixotic fashion(fighting imaginary windmills) by questioning or denigrating the corporate generosity, fairness and shareholder friendliness when they are given a substantial, 5%. increase in income.

    Thank you, FRONTIER (FTR) and KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

  • Update: Frontier Communications' Dividend Increase Signals Good Times Ahead [View article]
    FRONTIER (FTR) has been an amazing evolving acquisitive growing rural telecommunications investment under the reign of CEO Maggie Wilderotter.

    "Frontier has been the best performing stock in its peer group, trouncing the gains of peers CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL) and Windstream (NASDAQ:WIN). In addition, while Frontier was actually able to boost its dividend, both CenturyLink and Windstream have lowered theirs. CenturyLink cut its dividend by 25% back in early 2013 and has yet to raise it, while Windstream is in essence cutting its dividend 30% via a complicated REIT spinoff."

    BUY AND HOLD FRONTIER (FTR) for excellent dividends and outstanding continued capital gains. FTR is a WINNER!
