  • 3 Reasons Frontier's Dividend Is In Trouble Again [View article]
    Excellent, Uncle Pie:

    "Bank of America Merrill Lynch has a buy on FTR and expects dividend increases. Their price target is $9.
    UBS raised their rating to buy on June 2nd. They do not expect any dividend increases. Their price target is also $9.
    Both companies are optimistic on the Verizon purchase."

    BUY AND HOLD FRONTIER (FTR) FOR OUTSTANDING SAFE SHAREHOLDER DIVIDENDS AND HUGE CAPITAL GAINS.

  • 3 Reasons Frontier's Dividend Is In Trouble Again [View article]
    Most ridiculous negative article in the wonderful history of "Seeking Alpha".

    Michael Henage obviously has a reason for posting this baseless denigration of rural and exurban quickly growing telecommunications equity Frontier (FTR) but supplies no actual facts to back up his negativity.

    FTR has been doing an excellent job providing broadband and telecommunications services to previously very underserved rural and suburban customers and our USA government very correctly subsidizes FTR's providing of broadband services.

    Buy & hold FTR for safe and excellent 8+% shareholder dividends plus inevitable capital gains as FRONTIER (FTR) hugely expands its service areas and immediately accretive income, over the substantial covered investment in the acquisition from AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) with the enormous assistance of government approved and financed broadband subsidies.

    BUY FTR.

  • Ford Will Soon Be Hitting On All Cylinders [View article]
    " I continue to be excited about the company's future as the new aluminum bodied F-150 is nearing full production levels, the recent shift in consumer sentiment to higher profit margin vehicles, and the return of the Mustang.
    With the consumer purchasing more expensive vehicles, it will allow Ford to report stronger top line and bottom line growth.
    I remain bullish on the US automobile industry and believe Ford has a strong product mix to take advantage of the growing market.
    I will continue to enjoy the near 4% dividend yield as the company prepares to be successful in the long-term."

    EXCELLENT AND INFORMATIVE ARTICLE ON FORD (F).

    Buy and hold Ford (F).

  • Ford joins car-sharing business [View news story]
    Car sharing would seem to be a good deal for folks who lease new Ford & Lincoln vehicles and also for people who want short term rentals.

    It will be a win-win for FORD (F) shareholders and customers.

  • A Detailed Look At General Electric's Income Statement [View article]
    Felix Lumpe:

    Congratulations on your decision and while we agree that GE is an excellent investment, BUT when you, Mr. Lumpe, a formerly disgruntled retired GE employee, state, "Gonna convert my entire Net Worth to GE stock immediately", we would urge that you use proper caution and also diversify.

    It is better not to put ALL of your eggs in one basket, though GE is an excellent investment paying a very nice shareholder dividend.

    Good luck, My Friend, Felix Lumpe!

  • Philip Morris International: Put Dividend Investing On Autopilot With This 5% Yielder [View article]
    Philip Morris International (PM) is an excellent and safe investment for constantly increasing generous shareholder dividends.

    "In July 2008, Philip Morris paid its owners $0.46 per share and the tobacco company already announced that it will pay shareholders $1.00 per share in July 2015. Since 2008, Philip Morris has increased its dividend per share payout by 11.7% each year on average. That's quite remarkable growth considering that the U.S. and world economy were not in the best of shapes.

    Those rough times, however, did not affect Philip Morris' flow of dividends. Investors got a raise year after year while the U.S. economy was kicked to the ground. That dividend safety is what sets a Philip Morris' investment apart from other income investments.

    Right now, Philip Morris pays shareholders $4.00 a year in quarterly installments for a 4.89% dividend yield. Since Philip Morris will most likely grow its quarterly dividend again in October, prospective owners of the tobacco company are looking at a cash flow yield exceeding 5%.

    Your Takeaway
    Dividend investing can be put on autopilot with Philip Morris. Though currency translation risks are an issue in the short-term, the tobacco company's fundamentals are robust and its dividend has a high degree of stability and will likely continue to grow. If Philip Morris can raise its shareholders distributions throughout the Great Recession, there is little that could disrupt the flow of dividends in the future.

  • AT&T: Well Positioned For Growth [View article]
    "Strong DTV synergy outlook

    AT&T recently articulated that the DirecTV asset is highly cash generative and fits very well with AT&T's core business. As a result, this deal should be cash flow accretive immediately upon completion of the deal, with earnings accretion likely very shortly afterwards. Cost synergies are expected to be about $2.5 billion annually by year three post acquisition.

    I have factored in the DTV deal into my DCF model and conclude a fair value of $44 per share. This illustrates over 25% upside potential in the stock price. Worth a look I would say."

    BUY NOW - AT&T (T)

  • Vector Group: A Hidden Gem In The Tobacco Sector [View article]
    IAN BEZEK:

    That is only superficially true.

    You fail to take into account the 50% increase in the number of shares held, over 10 years due to the 5% annual VGR stock bonus to shareholders and the compounding of the excellent total 12% shareholder dividend.

    VGR is an amazingly productive shareholder profitmaker!

    BUY VGR.
