  • Spectra Energy Exits Auction For Williams, Leaving Energy Transfer Equity The Only Serious Bidder [View article]
    I for one would vote against the deal and would also not tender shares if it went hostile. why does eveeyone assume the hostile offer will succeed? williams is a better run company and has better price and dividend growth prospects.

  • Can The Alerian MLP ETF And Its 8% Expense Ratio Really Be Trusted Anymore? [View article]
    That is the true and basic reason why I also own this. These articles always fail to consider the tax on the owners side if they held the individual shares.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Spectra Energy: Profitability Analysis [View article]
    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.
