    So, essentially, like they said last quarter, they wont fire anyone because its bad long term to do so, and thus they dont have too much variable cost that they can cut.

    I missed the earnings call. Did ADP discuss any plans to mitigate the impact from falling headcounts(revenues) from clients payrolls? Do they plan on making any costs cuts?

    Significantly less jobs added in July with respect to what economists predicted. Looks like market as a whole didn’t care much. Government will probably fudge the numbers like they have the past few months.

    Still waiting on my next stock split. I am surprised that the company has allowed this share price to go up so much without another split although I realize that they have to be conscious of the number of shares out on the market being traded. But they can resolve that by doing more by backs as well.

    Lower short term rates should also negatively impact ADP earnings going forward. They won't make any float on client funds.

    I was happy with the dividend increase article and missed the $5 billion buyback program. 6.66% of current market capitalization.

    11 Apr 2018: "This dividend increase of 10% represents a return to shareholders of a portion of the benefits from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" AND "The Board of Directors anticipates consideration of another dividend increase in November 2018 consistent with ADP’s historical pattern"

    I love my dividend growth companies.

    I bought this stock a loong time ago and so glad I did - since it has done nothing but make money for me over the years. For me it has been the well that never runs dry! I benefited from two splits and if it ever splits again - well, let's just say that would be a very good thing for me and for everyone else who holds this stock, especially those in the company's stock purchase plan.

    $65 to $145 in 5 years, looks like 123% over 5 years so about 25% per year plus 2-3% dividends...nice return, take it all day long.

    has the company considered a stock split? ADP has historically traded in the range of $40-$80.

    After listening to Ackman and thoroughly reviewing the presentation pack because I believe it is incumbent on us to consider other inputs, I voted the white proxy. I know many Ivy League graduates who are bad investors, not to mention all the graduates from the 'best schools' who gave us the financial crisis. What they often lack is common sense. One of Buffetts's sayings is that if you have a 150 IQ, you should sell 50 points before you invest. After 40 years of successful investing, I think there is merit to his point.
