  • When A Growing Dividend Payout Ratio Should Not Scare You [View article]
    Great additions to bay's points above.

    I think PM can (almost) be summed up this way: Which will give first, dollar strength or PM's ability/willingness to give a decent raise (which will keep longs from selling) to its dividend??

  • These Are Future Dividend Champions, My Friends [View article]
    <Now, having said that, I am not 100% sure FB will ever have a dividend. And, like you, I wouldn't be stunned if FB didn't exist 10-15 years from now.>

    My gut tells me that this is a likely enough possibility to not even consider buying shares. I've never been there-nor will I ever go there, so that plays a part in it too.

    PS, Mike. John Deacon would be hurt by his exclusion in your Queen 'song' apologies.

    Rob:

    If you extrapolate out a little further (2-5 years), George's dividends will be increasing quite rapidly, and the 'meager' $5k you mention will be a whole lot more.

    It's only been 8(!) months, man. That's a microsecond in the market imo.

    Interesting. It looks a lot like Mt. Shasta (upper NorCal, center) on a clear, blue day.

    Great picture-thanks.

    Agree, George.

  • Berkshire returns to energy sector with $4.5B stake in Phillips 66 [View news story]
    auto44:

    You make a good point, but think of it this way: This is an investing site. WB's name is thrown around more than anyone else's here (and other places too for that matter).

    Don't you think it's fair to ask people who decide to post to spell his friggin' name right and know the difference between a table full of food and one of the best investors the world's ever known??

  • Shell Might Yield 8% Soon [View article]
    Splitting hairs over 7 or 8% in today's ZIRP world is silly. Split your buys into thirds, and you can hedge while making sure greed and pride don''t let u in until sub 6% b/c u waited too long.

  • The Time To Hedge Is Now - Or Is It Too Late? [View article]
    Mark:

    Once the market gets that we are not going to get a Sept rate hike, it can calm down some and look toward one in Dec or Mar. It may dump again when it gets the 'no hike confirm.', but it will be good to move past that and accept that rate hikes will be slow and stretched out over years, and being paranoid about 25 bp moves is overreacting.

    RCG:

    I've been saying that too-agree they will wait. That decision might actually send us back to retest the recent lows-who knows.

    <Probably heading back to test the lows.>

    Good. Let's get it done and get on with our business.

    PS, Tack: I agree with you.
