European Union is finding a new interesting way to finance its huge bureaucracy: they impose billion dollars sanctions on Microsoft. Yesterday they imposed one worth $1.3 Billions. A previous sanction worth $600 million was imposed a few years ago and there is a few more on the way. (more…)
Yes it is time for us, the people, the poor to own the same banks where we humbly enter intimidated by the magnificence of their solid institutional looks. That mainly for two reasons:
1) We understand very well what banks do (and do to us, their humble customers!)
2) Us banks are extremely successful and competitive businesses amazingly cheap to buy.
3) We can now buy banks for peanuts… Yes I already said that on 2)… But I like the idea, don’t you?
4) I believe that World (and US) economy is still strong and stock prices will soon restart to grow.
F is so cheap that I buy betting on mere survival. Even Fiat (FIA) could make it. I bet Ford (F) will too. May 4, 2006Posted by deminvest in Blogroll, Dogs of the Dow, F Ford, investment, Single stocks, stock I own, stocks.
Ford can make it. In my opinion Ford can manage to make decent earnings, can bring its debt out of its junk status and can even stop loosing market shares to Toyota and friends.
For a company priced 0.07 times its sales it would mean a big big gain for stock holders, considering for instance that Toyota has a 16 times higher price of 1.11 times its sales.
Why do I think F can make it? Several reasons, among which the most original and interesting is that even little and troubled Italian car constructor Fiat (FIA) seems to have made it. (more…)
One controversial Dog of the Dow: Bank of America Corp. April 5, 2006Posted by deminvest in Dogs of the Dow, investment, Single stocks, stocks.
4.40% dividend yield seems lovely, doesn't it? Unfortunately there are some drawbacks to this stock. The company is not growing. Revenue and earnings are going down. They are also forecasted to continue going down. Other major banks like Citycorp < C > are growing revenue and earnings.
What the heck is New Century Financial Corp ? Why does it give juicy dividend yield of 15% ? Why does it have a P/E 6?

It seems all right. Then reading around I find that the mortgage business is being beaten down. Is it? Then why are dividend yield forecasts so juicy? Why are earning so high that they result into a P/E ratio of 6?
Citycorp is a big bank, and we the proletarians know very well what banks do. Where we understand, there I may buy.
We proletarians like dogs (of the Dow). Our dog should be a cheap dog. We can’t afford pedigree prize winners. Our Dog of Dow should be strong enough to protect us and our few belongings, considering the tough neighborhoods where we, poor investors, often live.
C (Citycorp) happens to be all that.
