  • IBM: Correcting Misinformation Created By SA Contributor Josh Arnold  [View instapost]
    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for a nice article !! Can you please explain how you arrrived at the following number ?

    "I advocate dividing the cost of treasury shares by the quantity as reflected in the most recent balance sheet. That amounts to $123.06 per share, as of the 2014 10-K."

    Thanks,
    Ben

  • Qualcomm Investors: Time To Cash In Your Chips [View article]
    Lets see how shareholder friendly is QCOM. It always mentions big numbers in conference calls ( XX billions returned to shareholders) but outstanding shares barely moved from 1741 to 1705 in last 3 years. 155 millions repurchased in last 3 years but only 36 millions reduction in shares outstanding. So, 119 million ( Apprx 8 billion dollars) shares paid as stock compensation for employees and top executives.

    From 10-k
    ------------
    During fiscal 2014, 2013 and 2012, the Company repurchased and retired 60,253,000, 71,696,000 and 23,893,000 shares of common stock, respectively, for $4.5 billion, $4.6 billion and $1.3 billion, respectively

    And look at QCOM, the exact opposite of AAPL. It always mentions big numbers in conference calls ( XX billions returned to shareholders) but outstanding shares barely moved from 1741 to 1705 in last 3 years. 155 millions repurchased in last 3 years but only 36 millions reduction in shares outstanding. So, 119 million ( Apprx 8 billion dollars) shares paid as stock compensation for employees and top executives.

  • Stocks Are Two-Faced, And One Is A Pathological Liar [View article]
    Thanks for a good article !! Its true that EDMP but i am not sure if IBM is a good example. IBM EPS is definitely in uptrend but in the last 2 years their revenue is trending down and they are manufactuing the EPS through share buybacks and cutting down expenses and reduction in headcount. Hopefully, they will turnaround their business by making good progress in Cloud industry. Any thoughts ???

  • This Dividend King Has Paid Dividends For 97 Years Nonstop [View article]
    Currently MMM is fully valued and i believe its not the right moment to buy in. The market is currently expecting 12.5 % growth rate from this company , but 5Y growth rate is only around 6.9 %. Around $80 would be the fair value.

    I have a question for all Dividend growth investors. How would you setup your portfolio if your company 401k plan doesn't have the option to invest in stocks ? My company plan has only index funds ..
