    They had some interesting insights about #$%$ (http://financialdeals.tech). Definitely made me think twice about the company.

    Quick quiz: If you had $10,000 to invest a year ago, would you have been better off investing in Coca Cola stock or hiding it in your mattress? Time's up, which is it?

    Now onto a meaningful topic...
    Earlier this A.M. I read an interesting Seeking Alpha post "Only 7 Dividend Aristocrats May Have What It Takes To Survive An Inflation-Driven Rate Increase" (Simply search key words if interested) While I many not entirely agree with the author, I'm not afflicted with Confirmation Bias either.

    "What we can take away from this exercise in screening is that the financials do not support the idea that buying Dividend Aristocrat stocks at their current prices will work out well for investors if, or perhaps we should say, when the Fed takes its heavy finger off the scale and interest rates begin to rise, even if they only rise back to where they were only three years ago."

    "If you bought these stocks years ago when they were decently valued there is no reason not to hold them. But the story is very different for investors who buy them today. Their annual dividend growth will not be enough to make up for that steep drop in price for years to come."

    What are the authors "7 Dividend Aristocrats" that will "survive an inflation-driven rate increase"?

    My TROW YOC is just shy of 100% clocking in @98.18%.)

    For those who like to learn, or to continue to learn, I recommend reading the entire S.A. piece.

    Have a DELIGHTFUL weekend.

    Separate thread as I will be cutting and pasting and sometimes Y.F. doesn't like that and a post will disappear.

    Why "listen" to me about forward stock splits, even though what I have written is entirely LOGICAL and BACKED BY FACTS? This is where the cut and paste comes in!

    From Investopedia:
    "Understanding Stock Splits"
    "Remember that stock splits have no effect on the worth (as measured by market capitalization) of the company. A stock split should not be the deciding factor that entices you into buying a stock. While there are some psychological reasons why companies will split their stock, it doesn't change any of the business fundamentals. In the end, whether you have two $50 bills or one $100 bill, you have the same amount in the bank.”

    From The Motley Fool:
    "It also merits reiterating that, though they attract plenty of investor and media attention, stock splits mean very little in and of themselves. They change nothing in a company beyond simply shifting the number of shares by which a company's earnings are split.
    Splits always occur on a per-share basis. For illustrative purposes, an investor holding one hypothetical share of Procter and Gamble stock would receive two new shares of the company, each with half the dollar value of the original share. This will leave the investor with twice the shares at half the value, meaning that, at the end of the day, nothing of substance has really changed with the investor's holdings. So while some investors fixate on trying to predict whether companies like Procter and Gamble will split their stock, they would be better served analyzing the company, its investment, and business outlook instead."

    Even the fine folks at Consumer Reports has thoughts on the subject!:
    "But despite the emotional appeal of a "smaller" price, stock splits are becoming somewhat of an artifact. A half-century ago, corporations split their stock in order for investors to trade them in lots rounded to the nearest hundred; otherwise, the commission would increase for buying and selling "odd-lots." Today, investors don't need to worry about additional fees for odd-lot trading: None of the major online brokerages charge additional commissions or fees for trading, say, 26 shares of Netflix instead of 100"

    Most of the consumables are up today.. GIS, up >2%. PEP up 1.91%. KMB- up 1.8%. HRL up 1.9% .K- up 1.9%
    But Lame KO is flat or down.. and 0% gain for the year, with a market up 24%. To add to the insult, their div growth rate is the lowest and payout ratio the highest--locked into 4 cents per share for the last 4 years. Why would anyone hang with this no-fizz fail?

    Assuming Coke doubles every 10 years, my $1,700 invested (with dividends) could grow to $60,000 in 50 years.

    Upgrade:
    JP Morgan upgrades "Coca-Cola HBC" from Neutral to Overweight (Buy) - Coca-Cola HBC is the 3rd largest Coke Bottler/Distributor in the world, headquartered in Switzerland.. anticipates increased sales and greater profit margins, volume/sales growing nicely.

    Clearly, for some, there is confusion about forward stock splits.
    YES! It is GREAT to be long stocks that periodically split their shares. "Great" not because you own more shares (BUT NOT MORE OF THE COMPANY, since splits are PRO RATED) but because your position has increased in value. Without an increase in value (read: share price has increased) you rarely will see a company split its shares. When a company's value increases (read: its share price has increased), often the shares will be split. NO SHARE INCREASE, NO SPLIT. A split itself has NO BEARING on a company's valuation! Splits are associated with a company that has increased in value, but by no means are splits the CAUSE of an increase in valuation.

    A higher share price may portend a split
    BUT
    A split may not portend a higher share price

    Let's look at MSFT, a company that has split its shares quite a few times, until 2/2003 that is!
    The second to last time MSFT split its shares was 3/26/99. The last time: 2/14/03
    MSFT Total Return (Howard: this includes share "appreciation" AND dividends!) 3/26/99 - 2/14/03? (46%) v S&P500 (31%) WAIT...WHAT??? MSFT shares DECLINED between its last two splits? How was this possible if splits INCREASE THE VALUE OF A COMPANY? (they do NOT).
    What has MSFT's Total Return been since 2/14/03, the last time it split its shares?
    2093% v S&P500 700% WAIT....WHAT??? WITHOUT a split, MSFT shares have increased 2093% or 17.86% annually and almost outperformed the market by a factor of THREE--how was this possible?
    Answer: MSFT continued to grow its PROFITABLE businesses and thus it became more valuable--LOGICAL, NO? MSFT becoming more valuable had NOTHING to do with the number of shares it had outstanding.

    Conclusion:
    While emotionally forward stock splits may be FUN!, they have ZERO impact on the long term value of a company. A company's valuation and its share price can and WILL increase absent a split, as long as the business continues to flourish.

    This is in my "forever" portfolio, just buying when i have something exstra. Currently small @15 shares, but thinking that this over time will give divident payments and be a solid foundation in good times and bad.

    (I am a stock newbie from Norway, so i am not in any way recommending anything for anyone, just sharing my thoughts.)
