  • An Intelligent Way To Think About Healthcare Trust Of America's Reverse Stock Split [View article]
    munibill -- I can agree with the example you just gave, where you are using the same dollar amount drop in both pre- and post split price and converting it to a percentage. But in your first comment you used two different dollar amounts for the drop. You need to stick with the same means of measuring the drop in both cases, either percentage or dollars. Maybe that is where the confusion is coming from.

    Let me use your $12 stock example and the dollar figures from your original comment. A $1 drop pre-split would be a 8.333% drop from $12. Then you say it would look like a $.50 drop post-split, so .50/24 = 2.083%. I don't know if that's what you meant to say, but that's the way I read it. A $1 drop pre-split cannot equal a $.50 drop post-split. It would only be equivalent the other way around.

    Now if you want to stick with percentages, that $1 drop from $12 pre-split is 8.333%. So the if post-split $24 price drops by 8.333%, that's a $2 drop, rounded. Same percentage of drop results in double the dollar amount, the same as the change in the stock price after the reverse split. I hope I have made my explanation as clear as you made yours. RSR

    U T A -- See my earlier reply to munbill regarding the resulting change in value of a stock price after a drop pre- and post-split. I believe the result would be the reverse of what you are stating. A $1 drop now would equate to a $.50 drop pre-split, not the other way around. If I am incorrect, would you please explain how my example to munibill is wrong? RSR

    munibill -- perhaps my coffee-addled brain is not understanding your point correctly, but it seems to me the reverse in change of value would be the result. A $13 pre-split stock would become a $ 26 stock, so a $.50 drop in the pre-split value would equate to a $1 drop in the post-split value, i.e. $12.50 would become $25. You appear to be claiming the reverse would be the case, which I think is incorrect. Am I missing something? RSR

  • Mattel Vs Hasbro: Which Toy Titan Will Fatten Your Wallet? [View article]
    The thing I see with all the numbers cited here is they cover a ten year period. Most of the differences are marginal over that span, only a few percentage points. Going back five to ten years ago, MAT was the stronger company. I would like to see how the numbers compare in three or five year increments. Over the last three years, HAS has been the better performer. These two companies appear to be moving in opposite directions, especially this past year. MAT has its work cut out for it to recover. Long both MAT & HAS in an IRA I manage for my wife, but MAT is on a short leash, saved by its yield so far. RSR

  • Pengrowth Energy: The Sky Is Not Falling [View article]
    I wish people would stop rooting for PGH to cut or eliminate the dividend. That's not necessary. The monthly dividend is approx. 82.75% of the reason I bought this speculative stock. Growth and long-term capital gains would be nice to have as well, but I can wait a long time for that to materialize as long as I continue to receive a few pennies every month from PGH. RSR

    Added to my COP this morning. Price was too good to pass up after yesterday's action. Now a little overweight in COP, but that's ok. Total energy holdings only about 11% of total. RSR

  • Considering Foreign-Domiciled Dividend Growth Stocks [View article]
    cordes -- I am not familiar with the specifics of the transactions you are referring to, but in general terms I would say those kinds of changes do not concern me. I do know that recently they sold one or two of their product lines. These kinds of moves are not unusual or uncommon for large international companies like Unilever, particularly in the consumer products area. Usually they represent only a relatively small piece of the overall business. They will acquire or dispose of entities based on how they see them fitting into their overall goals for growth, exposure and profitability of the company, and how they fit with their other products. For example, a year or so ago, Procter and Gamble sold the Pringles line to Kellogg. Several years prior to that they sold Folgers and Jif to JM Smucker. P&G no longer wanted to be in the food business - it didn't fit with their bigger picture for the company. RSR

  • Considering Foreign-Domiciled Dividend Growth Stocks [View article]
    cordes -- I would assume that LSE refers to the London Stock Exchange. He is talking about buying UL shares on the London exchange as opposed to buying the ADR shares on the U.S. exchange. You are correct that UN shares would be affected by the exchange rate between the $U.S. and the Netherlands currency. I am not certain but I believe they use the Euro. In my opinion the U.S. ADR UL shares are preferable for U.S. owners. I am long UL. RSR

    There's no obvious connection there. Spell out what you're talking about or don't waste my time. I'm not interested in chasing shadows. RSR

    Other than the headline, I see no mention of the idea of a Sears REIT spinoff nor anything connecting any of these REITs to the Sears idea. What's up? RSR

  • Utilities Shouldn't Return 18% [View article]
    Hmm - not worth commenting on...but you did. If you don't like Eli's articles, subject matter or writing style, then don't read him. Simple. Congratulations on WEC - that's a good hold.

    I always read Eli's articles. I generally find them interesting, informative, and they usually leave you with something to think about. Can't ask for much more than that. This one was no exception. Doesn't have to knock your socks off with startling insights.

    I am long SO and D, among others, for several years. Wish i had picked up some WEC along the way to go with them. Holding them for the nice dividends, not concerned with the share price. RSR

  • DuPont Is Dead Money; Get Out Now [View article]
    Thanks ARG1. I am quite familiar with funfun's perpetual repetitive rants about Ellen Kullman and the DuPont board. I thought you might have a comment to offer about his references to the poison pill, Ms Kullman's $50 million platinum parachute, or her sale of $37 million worth of stock, among other things from the comments you responded to. I don't always follow the happenings at DuPont as closely as I might, so it is difficult sometimes to separate the wheat from the chaff and the wind. RSR
