  • Whiting USA Trust II Quarterly Distribution Up On Decreased Expenses, Good Oil Prices [View article]
    Awesome. Yeah that higher costs then what was expected from the S-1 really killed estimates for the total payout of WHZ. Really glad to see it dropped and with development costs halved... hopefully will stay that way.

  • PetSmart explores its options [View news story]
    Selling out now is in the best interest of traders. Not necessarily investors.
    Different people are invested in a company for different reasons and different time horizons.

  • Treasury yields jump, gold slumps after strong jobs print [View news story]
    If Zerohedge was ever even neutral of good news then we could say they look at facts.
    The US debt could be $0 with no inflation and 100% employment and they would find some way to make it the worst news ever.

  • Enduro Royalty Trust Should Be In Your Portfolio [View article]
    For the second time: NDRO has to pay for the wells that are built. The author mentions there are new wells being built his year.

    So no its not a problem. Its a company paying the costs for increased production. Its pretty much what every company out there has to deal with. Since a trust pays all their profit out to unit holders it has to come out of the distribution

  • Enduro Royalty Trust Should Be In Your Portfolio [View article]
    On falling distributions...
    Seeing as how NDRO pays for the wells being setup having lower distributions isnt all that surprising.
    As investors we need to get our act together and find why things happen with our investments instead of hoping a company fixes non problems.

  • Over one-third vote against American Realty executive pay plan [View news story]
    To do a proper "expirement" you'd have to have the same people in both sample sets.
    I respect Warren but completely disagree with his opinion on KO.

  • Over one-third vote against American Realty executive pay plan [View news story]
    edmondgoh: thats not a true vote because management couldn't care if you sell it because someone else just bought it. Thats called walking away.
    I wish more investors remembered that shareholders are the owners and management works for us.

    financeminister: I'm sure it sends a very harsh message against executive pay to have the board too afraid to give up their own pay and position by telling management no.
    You and your son are exactly whats wrong with corporate governance these days.

  • Total Return Is Not All That Matters In The Accumulation Phase [View article]
    David Van Knapp: I think your 5 year bull market comment is spot on.
    Its very easy right now to talk about how capital gains are the way to go and dividends don't matter when we are up 100% in that time frame. 20% average gain and dividends only contribut 2%-3% makes dividends do seem unimportant.

    However going with a long term average of 8% total returns and dividends contribute 2%-3% of they quite plainly contribute a great deal.
    Now if capital gains or dividends are more important to an individual is an individual preference and opinion. But they certainly matter.

    A friend of mine quite accurately put it ...
    "Everyone is a financial genius in a bull market."

  • Total Return Is Not All That Matters In The Accumulation Phase [View article]
    Mike Nadel: Absolutely I have to be careful of hypocrisy of generalizing. There are exceptions. My comments are based on my own personal, limited view of the impressions I get from commentors and contributors.

    I'm a 30 something myself so I break my own comment LOL.

    "First of all, my perspective is as a retiree"

    Once again I am seeing a familiar pattern.
    The people actually having to live off their portfolio are pro dividends.
    The people who say dividend strategies aren't good are the 20 and 30 somethings working off of spreadsheets and economic theory.

    I hardly ever see a retiree talking about how dividends don't matter nor the young investor talking about dividends. Certainly a few notable exceptions but I'm talking about generalities.

  • When Cutting Dividends Adds Shareholder Value [View article]
    " From a totally rational point of view, a dividend doesn't give to a shareholder anything that he did not already have before."

    If the markets were rational than I might agree with you here but tell that to an investor whose stock drops below book value.

  • When Cutting Dividends Adds Shareholder Value [View article]
    I'd love to know who exactly focuses only on dividends and nothing else as part of their strategy.
    To evaluate if a company can grow their dividend you'd have to look at debt, management, growth of the business, EPS.... all the things that a capital gains investor would look towards.

  • Debunking The 'Dividends Don't Add Shareholder Value' Myth [View article]
    What I love about these dividends don't matter debates is WHO is saying WHAT.

    The people in their working years using equations and theories in what their retirement years will be like are the ones generally wanting the company to keep all profit and that dividends don't matter.

    The people actually retired and having to deal with the reality of living off their portfolio are the ones wanting dividends and income.

    I'm in my 30s and I look to the retired commentors and what they are thinking and doing for what to expect.
