    Thanks for your continuing great work.

    I think Suncor Energy Inc. (SU) has already increased its dividend in 2013.

    Another fine article, Gerry.

    CHRW has been on my watch list and your comments are most helpful.

    By the way, the company has increased dividends for 16 straight years.

  • United Guardian: A Quiet Little Moneymaker  [View article]
    A good article about a good little company. Thanks.

    As you say, there's not a lot of institutional ownership. One of such owners, however, is Mario Gabelli and related entities, 6.9%. So, I wouldn't be surprised if Mario at a Barron's Roundtable mentions UG as a possible acquisition.

    The company also paid a special dividend of $0.50/share in December. Cash and marketable securities increased from $10,386 million on 12/31/11 to $12,881 million on 9/30/12.

    Any other quiet little moneymakers on your radar screen?

  • Dividend Champions Smackdown XXX  [View article]
    Thanks for this smackdown, David.

    If it's not too much trouble, could you let us have the names of the 6 companies that didn't make the final cut in Step 4 because of dividend yields below 2%?

    kwm3: Why don't you name 2 (two) of the "exceedingly smart people" who think Warren Buffett is a "paid advertisement for Wall St."?

    As for your comments about equities, what are you buying? 30-year Treasury Bonds?

  • Is U.S. Bank Being Mismanaged? It Seems So.  [View article]
    I like USB, but I think the author makes some good points. I would hope that USB reads this article and, if the shoe fits . . .

    Also I note COF's stock has performed quite well vis-a-vis USB, although USB has been much stronger in the past 6 months.

    OP: Keep up the good work.

    Your article says "no position in the aforementioned securities," but your linked income holdings list shows positions in KMB, LEG and CINF. Please clarify . . .
