  • 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.

  • Windstream receives final approval for REIT spinoff and declares dividend [View news story]
    Thank you, north hills 24 and JonnyH92! I really had this mangled, didn't I?

    Also, I did learn that some part of the payout won't be a "qualified dividend," i.e., eligible for a 15% tax rate. So, with that fact included, the overall cut is, in effect, worse than dropping from $1 to $0.58 a share.

  • Windstream receives final approval for REIT spinoff and declares dividend [View news story]
    So, then, say, 120 shares of Windstream now paying $120 a year become 24 shares of CS&L, then these 24 shares reverse split into 4 shares, each of which pays $2.40 for an annual total of $9.60.

    Surely, I can't have this right(?) After all, I did hear from one or another "authority" that, when all is said and done, shareholders would be getting $0.58 (instead of the earlier $1) for every share of Windsteam held.

    Does anyone know for sure?

  • AT&T's Buyback Report Card [View article]
    Nor do I. I personally recommend actually naming such (no-income-tax) states in forums such as these, possibly to interest other investors in moving there, leaving high-tax states to wither from their excessive taxation.

    -Long on Nevada.

    Actually, I truly believe that you will win this way. That's pretty much what I'm doing. Other things equal, "time favours the investor."

  • Bank Of America: Best Buy Among Big Banks With Most Upside To Boot? [View article]
    Correct. From the time of Plato on, the only empirical solution to the "problem of value" is what is willingly given in exchange for something--a intangible good or intangible service.

  • GE Looking Attractive, Leaving Lending Business Behind [View article]
    Excuse me, "a solid dividend history"? Isn't this the company that, a few years ago, cut its quarterly dividend from thirty-some-odd cents to ten cents quite soon after CEO Immet promised shareholders that the dividend was "secure"? Those of us who have been around the block a couple times don't take such broken promises lightly--certainly, not when there are so many other good places to invest our hard-won dollars.

  • GE CEO Jeff Immelt Issues Letter To Shareowners [View article]
    Words, mere words, and these from a man with a proven record of broken promises (e.g., that the dividend was secure).

  • Wells Fargo: Still An Attractive Play [View article]
    Nice review. From all the data I have reviewed, $62 is a more than reasonable (i.e., attainable) price target for this "best-of-bunch" bank.

    I think GE is following the AT&T model: buy high and sell low (e.g., NCR, etc.)
