    So, if coming out of this health/economic crisis there is a huge amount of M&A activity, I would imagine LAZ should do ok?

    Got a positive mention on CNBC by some guest analyst. I already own STWD (pays 8.5%) recommended by Cramer. I am not sure about a company with HQ in Bermuda

    Not much love for this stock right now. Good earnings report, leading into ex-dividend date and it goes down.???? Still have hopes for an increase in price.

    Market does not like LAZ...no pizzazz....needs to get into Crypto....buy PSFE is cheap and will give them instant exposure to the future of banking, digital processing, and its cool.

    Laz has exceeded EPS estimates for 9 consecutive quarters. Anyone have an intelligent idea why it continues to trade in the same price range with that performance history?

    This one's a puzzle. Good company, solid earnings and great dividend yield

    Jan. AUM up 7.1%. Still no big interest in LAZ.
    Low volume = No price movement......

    With the assumption a special dividend is coming, anyone got any feelings on the amount? A boost perhaps. I expect the regular dividend to remain the same for 1st quarter with an increase for the 2nd quarter. Any thoughts/insights? LAZ has been very good to me since I purchased in Oct16.

    For you all that love dividends:

    $LAZ Lazard investment advisory has 6% dividend, P/E of $10 and very strong balance sheet. Yesterday It just announced it will be responsible for the Aramco IPO, that will bring huge revenues. The company is very shareholder friendly and always pay special dividends. My entry price was $32, i think It should easily reach $40 soon.

    $COTY the biggest Frangance/Cosmetic company in the world had tough times recent having to write off $3 billion from the acquisition of P&G products, but it has a new CEO with a turn around plan. It pays 5.45% dividend. The main reason I bought it its because insiders just bought $80 million worth of stock, yes that right $80 million with their own money. Also JAB one of the institutions share holder that had 32% stake, increased to 60%, maybe they will take private soon. I think most bad news are behind, and with Esteer Lauder beating earnings, COTY should follow it.

    With stock prices at depressed levels M&A action should pick up. LAZ is a good buy right now.

    Lazard is a leader in restructuring this stock is a great play for short and medium term with companies needing to restructure

    More outflows on the asset management side announced just yesterday. That seems to be the main drag on the stock.
    LAZ certainly looks cheap, and the yield is nice. But why is it that a stock with a very high reported ROE never seems to make shareholders much money???
    Tough to accept that, so I sold. Maybe some other time.

    I am sooo happy I bought this for $63!! 6.8 dividends for life!!!

    As soon as the deal closes early next year this will be an $85 stock, once all synergies are from the merger are in to play this will be $120!!!

    Cant believe the new comoany with $10.5 eps, is so cheap!

    Humira has another 4 good yearsin the USA, botox another 20 years in emerging market plus all new drugs!!!

    Also my other dividends stocks I just bought are:

    $LAZ $COTY $MO

    All have easily 30% upside and 5.5% plus dividends

    Heck Morgan Stanley back to $87 . They are selling the heck out of these brokerage stocks . That has to be a buy on MS . I just feel this sell off is getting over done but at same time we had a lot of extra froth in the market . Usually when I think is done going down it continues down . Picked up some Lazard yesterday but must remember the are invested in stocks and about all stocks are going down so be prepared for another drop . Total client money invested will be 12-15% lower .
