  • COMEX Gold Inventories: Registered Gold Drops To New Lows [View article]
    Perhaps new technologies are gobbling up all the gold...ie...flying saucers. Gold is a great conductor and will never corrode! That's what I would use to build secret flying saucer machines. Something to go hmmmmm about.

  • Dividend Stocks From Israel [View article]
    Understood, but have you given thought that just maybe Israel is going to be getting bigger? This would expand their "geographic reach". It has happened before in the not so distant past. 1948 comes to mind, 1956 was another time, again in 1967, and 1973. Looks to me that each time Israel gets an unprovoked attack they defend them self's, and their geographic grows. Now the middle east is almost ready to go to war again, just look at Damascus, and Iran. Besides if your not enthusiastic about Cellcom, then may I suggest you hang out with a thread you can be enthusiastic about, perhaps Facebook !:-)

    Please, most companies are not on "strong financial footing right now." You could make that statement with about 60% of the stocks being traded today. Just look at any company that is not even making a profit, hundreds come mind. But Cellcom IS making a profit. They decided to not pay a dividend this quarter in order to get some debt paid down, this was talked about on the conference call, during the question and answers. This decision will help their balance sheet. Sounds like a responsible thing to do.

  • Cellcom Israel's CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    Hey, I like my title...."Unidentified Analyst". I hope my input about the lazy lax American media FAILING to cover the important update of Cellcom Winning the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) tender for cellular services gets the media's attention. Somebody's got to do their job, and here I am to do it. !:-) ... Where's J. Jonah Jameson when you need him? To quote from my friend in New York..."if its good enough for the IDF, then it's good enough for shlomo six-pack." Thank you Cellcom for showing the Israeli Government your services are clean, tight, and secure enough for them to use for their Military needs. My prayers are with you in Israel.

    Nuff Said

    Lets take a closer look at Cellcom folks. Have you read this article?

    http://bit.ly/OOKkdL

    Looks like somebody other than Elbit Systems is going to be getting revenues from the IDF too. Too bad major media and others missed this important detail.

    Also, remember dividend yield is very personal. It depends on the price YOU paid for the stock, no me or someone else. Finding your true dividend yield is not too hard to figure on your own. Here's how I do mine.... We take the .32 cents Cellcom actually paid on July 30th, minus the Foreign tax rate of 25%, and divide that sum by the stock price that YOU as an individual paid for it. Example: I bought 1000 shares at $6.01 so I take the .32 cent dividend minus the 25% foreign tax rate (.25 x .32= .08 cents) leaves me .24 cents per share. Then I take .24 cents per share and divide that by 6.01 and viola.....4% rate for the last quarter! MMMMMMM Juicy.

  • 4 Undervalued Stocks Paying 10%+ Dividends [View article]
    I called my broker on that one, If a company is traded on the NYSE like CEL is, then everything is in US Dollars, yes even the dividends, however they did tell me that I need to be aware of a Foreign tax on dividends, not sure how that works but I am researching it.

  • Chimera: In Danger Of More Dividend Cuts? [View article]
    Awesome JaxxBat,

    I had a working order to buy at $2.33, but E*trade last night changed the order to buy at $2.24, they informed me it automatically changes due to ex-dividend date. I thinks after the date I will change back to buy order at $2.33.

    Looking at the bigger picture, CIM has stopped issuing stock (selling) to the open market since March 2011. And some insiders have been buying throughout 2011. Insiders typically see a bigger picture and work with bigger time frames then us. CIM's board members know that allowing their stock price to slide below $2.00 would be a blow to CIM's stock price due to margin requirements at most brokerages (a lot of people would get margin calls and forced to sell), and a slide to under $1.00 per share will get them delisted from the NYSE exchange, and nobody wants that headache, especially upper management. So I imagine them working on this.

    Buying at 2.40 or below seems fine at 15% div. Remember Black Rock holds over 45 million shares, Wells Cap holds 55 million shares, Thornburg over 45 million, Vanguard, Brandywine, and a host of others, all hold millions of shares of CIM. I don't see them dumping shares into the open market over this concerning earnings delay. They seem pretty smug with holding all these shares even with the analyse downgrades. I say "Buy the Fear....Sell the Greed."

    Ex-dividend date is tomorrow 06/27/2012. Buying in here @ 2.51 seems fine at 14.3% div. Black Rock holds over 45 million shares, Wells Cap holds 55 million shares, Thornburg over 45 million, Vanguard, Brandywine, and a host of others, all hold millions of shares of CIM.
