Re: It's Not Working

It is the price of the buyback that makes it good or bad. Buying below the long term trend line (i.e. 200 DMA) is mostly good. Buying when the stock price is far above the long term trend is largely bad.

Re: McDonald's (MCD)

One of their potentials for modest same store growth is the trend for store "rebuilds". This involves closing a location, bulldozing it and rebuilding a new one on the same site (or very nearby). I've seen this at three stores that I [more]

Re: HCN

I just love the selective rounding of company press releases.

Dividend increase from $3.18 to $3.30 is a 3.8% increase not a 4% increase. The 4% in the press release overstates the size of the increase by 5%.
