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

    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?

    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.

    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

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.
