Re: Folks needing dividends...

Fortunately, I haven't got searching for yield because I've read enough on this fine board that it doesn't mean what we think it does.

Re: Folks needing dividends...

building BRK positions now would not be a bad choice.

Lu thinks Bloomburg is a phenomenal business, the way it hooks people, and that they have insane pricing power.

Re: Folks needing dividends...

t's hard to imagine anyone doing worse with periodic sales of a no-dividend stock with a 10% earnings yield than they would with 4% dividends from a stock with 5-6% earnings yield.

You find it hard to imagine, but I don't. I have [more]

Re: Languishing Share Price

Any one else think that there is going to be any reason for the stock to climb back?

What we, the posters, think has no influence on what the stock does. On the other hand, if a company declares a dividend it generally does happen [more]

When I'm investing, I like to be driving, for better or worse.

JZ,

Any denizens of this board adding to their positions at this price?

I am rather tired of bored retirees with nothing better to do in their lives but to come here and troll this excellent board and treat it as their own soapbox.

Spend more time looking ... ... and spend less time complaining on this board.

Jean David did not complain, he just told facts which would have led others to complain.

Re: Folks needing dividends...

This thread has nothing to do with dividends which are hated on this board in deference to the practice of BRK to collect, but not to pay them. Investing in dividends calls for more brainwork than posters on this board are willing or able to summon. [more]

Now that Iran is respectable again they can sell their oil cheaply. Will thaw bring the price down? Will I be able to buy CVX at 99?
