  • General Electric: Fool Me Once, Shame On You; Fool Me Twice, Shame On Me [View article]
    Who could have predicated that GE wouldn't plan another modest, annual increase in its not-very-big common dividend? I certainly didn't see this coming.

    Do American shareholders to vote on this, or is it a "done deal" without their input?

  • GE Steamrolling The Competition Heading Into April Earnings [View article]
    And, of course, don't forget that the company slashed its dividend by half (I think it was) a few years earlier and hasn't yet made up for that. However, hope is eternal.

  • Dividend Growth Stock Overview: Questar Corporation [View article]
    Informative article. On selling shares from a DRIP, one doesn't have to sell them through the company at $15. Instead, he can easier transfer them to, for example, Scottrade, where they can be sold for $7.

    Any idea of how far down the road a Chapter 11 filing is? Neither an organism nor a joint-stock company can haemorrhage indefinitely without dying.

  • Bulgaria cuts power purchase prices with AES, ContourGlobal [View news story]
    What is the point of long-term power agreements if the purchasers can opt out should prices fall but hold the suppliers (e.g., AES) to the contract should prices rise?

    This seems like a "lose-lose" situation for a supplier such as AES. Or am I missing something here?

    -Long time long on AES

  • Bloomberg: Windstream REIT spinoff seeking $3.65B in financing [View news story]
    At first glance, at least (I'm a mere layman), this seems ominous, for example, borrowing (issuing bonds) to pay a dividend.

  • Caution doled out on railroad stocks [View news story]
    Maybe, the MKM Partners would like to pay 23.8% tax on capital gains (a large part of which reflects inflation) and also (often) double digit state capital gains tax after selling railway stocks held for years and years. Thank you, but no, I'll die with what I have and leave it to my heirs before I left Uncle Sam rape me.

  • Is GE A Top-Notch Income Stock? [View article]
    Good point, indeed, PVFederico. Additionally, the word "substantially" should come at the end of this sentence, which would make it read better, that is, avoid splitting an infinitive (thus a victory for grammar).

  • Is GE A Top-Notch Income Stock? [View article]
    I'm still hurting from GE's 50% (I think it was) cut in its pay out (dividend) a few years back, that just after its CEO assured shareholders that the dividend was "secure."

    I agree, though, that the view from here on out seems positive.
