  • Questar Corporation: Outsized Dividend Growth Unlikely [View article]
    That Questar's dividend is under pressure isn't news for long-term shareholders. This article will be useful to would-be investors in Questar, but I suggest editing for grammar (e.g., comma splices), including punctuation and "sentence sense."

  • Should Softbank Take Its Losses And Divest From Sprint? [View article]
    Given the enormity of the loss on Sprint, I should think that the more appropriate thing to do for Softbank, that is, as a matter of personal honour after irreparable "loss of face," is to pass the revolver from officer to officer.

  • Frontier Communications +1.2%, comes to deal with California union [View news story]
    Why would union members take restricted shares of Frontier stock instead of, say, something of dependable value?

  • 5% To 17% Yields By 10 Top Utility Dividend Dogs As Of July 23 [View article]
    Yes, and One Gas has soared to where it's almost a "sell" on valuation (Conrad's Utility Investor).

  • Old Republic beats by $0.11, beats on revenue [View news story]
    Speaking as the third of four generations of Old Republic shareholders, I can't think of a company whose management has better kept faith with its shareholders. For example, not only did it avoid cutting its dividend during the Great Recession, when it profits turned to losses, it modestly raised the dividend each year, keeping its vaulted status as a Dividend Aristocrat. Old Republic is the embodiment of the concept of "planning for the long term." (And no, this isn't a paid announcement. :) I'm not on Old Republic's payroll.)

    To me, it sounds as if you would be right for the job. Successful rehabilitation presumes knowledge or admission of the problem, and you certainly nailed it: "style over content."

  • IBM -6.3%; Street cuts estimates, debates turnaround after mixed Q2 [View news story]
    Thank you, MintyFresh32, for calling this link to my attention. IBM sounds like a crapshoot or worse--i.e., being at the end (stagnation, complacency, management self-service) of an all-too-familar company cycle that begins with creativity, innovation, growth.
