I see that ASHW (ashworth) was bought by Adidas on Monday, for $1.90 a share. I had a feeling this was going to happen back at the end of September, because a friend of mine works there.

Look slike Adidas got the company for almost nothing.......

I got GE at just over 17 on Monday. Close enough to me for a 7% yield. Bought MMM and MCD then, too. I'm really starting to love dividends.

Had breakfast yesterday with a fund manager from American Funds. His comment was that they are looking and re-evaluating any and all stocks that pay dividends.

Prudent thing to do in times like these.
Morningstar has done this quite a bit lately as well.
Wish I had a much larger stake in CMP But they didn't fit the category of stocks that raised their dividend since August, so I didn't list them.

How old was this guy in 1948 when I first saw the Norwegian widow by the mailbox?

Seems to me - now's the the time to be contarian - growth stocks that don't pay dividends.

Baaa - lemmings!

heh heh heh - that's a little Norwegian joke.

I'd guess this guy wasn't born in 1948 yet. However, he was commenting about how in 1942, it was the time to be buying and they've learned from the past. With this company, it is multi management of their funds, and most of the managers have years of experience. In fact, I think their AVERAGE manager has 27 years or so.

Sooo - stay in touch with this guy to get the low/no dividenders that are getting trashed P/E wise but are still growing through thick and thin because they are good businesses.

Right?

heh heh heh - and be sure and tell us.

It doesn't appear to me that dividends have protected from share-price declines. Maybe they have done so; do you have any data compiled?

Ha
