  • Why Dividends Are Irrelevant [View article]
    Another valueless article debunking DGI based on arithmetic 'common sense'. What it fails to consider is the actual historical behavior of dividend paying stock prices over time compared to growth stocks and the value of a constant and growing stream of income one has without having to give up stock ownership.

  • I'm Dumping Shares In HCP And Hiring Debra Instead [View article]
    Could this be an emotional over reaction. Pare back if you have concerns but as stated earlier, the business is in good shape, principal business model goes on. The board has a purpose, they may have done the right thing for the long term business.

  • Stop Paying Me A Dividend And Start Buying Back Shares [View article]
    Like many things Finance & Economics professors say it's logical but doesn't happen in the real world of investing or business. Buy backs rarely provide long term shareholders any real return. They tend to buy high, re issue the shares later (rarely retiring them) and only temporally raise earning per share to allow Sr Mgt to make Objectives for bonus.

    A company buying back stock is rarely a good or bad sign. Over whelming it's not done for share holders but provides management better earning per share numbers for objective meeing. Normally the shares are not purchased at a low price and not retired, but put into the corp treasury where the majority of time they are soon reissued.

  • B&G Foods: Buy, Sell Or Hold? [View article]
    The duel stocks for Unilever should never be an issue for investing or not. It is common practice for non US companies ie Royal Dutch and BHP Biliton come to mind. It made their historical mergers easier and provides tax break alternatives for US investors ie; UK has a dividend treaty with the US so buying the UK based stock avoids the div tax & deduction claim.

    debate it all you want, may steady and growing dividend stream (equities are 60% of portfolio), combined with 40% in Short term & intermediate bonds, has kept us living well in the past, today and for years to come, while capital continues to show growth in line with the divined increases. every retirement eval software program I run it thru shows this can go on for 30+ years
