  • Will Royal Dutch Shell Cut Its Dividend? [View article]
    This article is a waste of time asking this question. Shell has not had a dividend cut since 1943 which was ww2 and that was only because of their oil fields got bombed. Granted there have been years since where they have not raised the dividend. A freeze to the current 0.94 cent on the ADR is the likely scenario for a couple of years. As mentioned Shell has carries billions of cash on its balance sheet and has a AA- credit rating. Plus the company sold quite a few assets when oil was high within the last year and half. Shell certainly might not raise the dividend this year like CVX and XOM most likely will, but they wont be cutting it either like Eni (E) did.

    it doesn't increase market cap, but it does increase the pps and one of the requirements to be listed on the NYSE is to have your stock price greater than $1.00 per share.

  • Colgate-Palmolive declares $0.38 dividend [View news story]
    yeah but have they been raising dividends like CL has for over 50 years straight? I think not, when you compare CL returns to its competitors in the last 50 years they blow out P&G among others.

  • Philip Morris: The Math Keeps Getting Worse [View article]
    Title of Article:
    PM: "The Math Keeps getting worse".

    Is the math for PM getting worse, or are these articles covering PM getting worse? Personally, I think it's these articles covering PM.

    You hit the nail on the head! The Dow is the most meaningless statistic out there when it comes to market averages and how well the market is doing.

  • Apple replacing AT&T in Dow Jones Industrial Average [View news story]
    It's not going to affect their $ at all. How so? So someone is not going to sign up for T service because the company is not on the Dow? And please do NOT start the argument that people will sell T stock because it's not on the Dow. People are invested in T because of the divdiend, and being on the DOW does not affect that either. Alcoa and Honeywell are two good examples of when they were thrown off the Dow their stocks went up.

  • Apple replacing AT&T in Dow Jones Industrial Average [View news story]
    "VZ and T largely replicate each other, so I think it's good to only have one of them in the Dow".

    That argument makes no sense. Chevron and Exxon are alike and rhyme in name and there both on the Dow. Merck and Pfizer are alike and they are both on the Dow. It should have been CSCO, INTC, or HPQ. Especially HPQ how are they still on the dow when there market cap is so small? Makes no sense.
    BTW, the Dow don't mean anything anymore it's the most useless index out there. It's not the same 30 companies it was once or even if close if you go back ten years. So what's the Dow really worth?
    Another point is don't feat my fellow T investors, Honeywell was thrown off the Dow I believe in 08 and the stock has tripled in value shows how much the Dow means! If you don't perform your thrown off the Dow.

  • As Altria Keeps Rising, So Does The Temptation To Sell [View article]
    Why would MO have to come down? You do realize MO even with its run up has a cheaper PE than RAI and RAI does not have a 28% stake in SABMiller. I hear this argument all the time and quite frankly its silly.

    @TeachEnglish
    Look at a utility company like SO or DUK since the utility stocks have been going down as of late. You won't get the price appreciation per share that MO has but you get a steady dividend in a easy business that people need electricity as of this writing SO yields around 4.7% and DUK is over 4.1%. Hope this helps.

  • AT&T's DirecTV Purchase Will Pay Dividends For Shareholders [View article]
    merlendale

    Yes thats' right no risk to the dividend, just because there free cash flow was a high % compared to the dividend this year does not automatically mean its going to be cut. Now if they have several years of this, then yes something has to give, but like I said a company who has a history of paying dividends and raising them are friendly shareholder companies, and are usually good companies for income investors to invest in, further most dividend aristocrats go through bad periods from time to time. I bet you T will once again raise the dividend another penny this year again.

  • Royal Dutch Shell: Undervalued Energy Giant With A Secure 5% Dividend Yield [View article]
    Actually technically Shell has not had a dividend reduction since 1943 in ww2 and that was because of oil fields that were destroyed during the war.
