How low can it go,,,with a double digit dividend, when they're touting additional dividend increases?

I'm curious on this AGHP. It's volume is even lower than ARLP, with a larger dividend

Remember when I first recommended it, the dividend was 25% and the price was $10 a share.

All the news continues to be positive. The export market will continue to grow. ARLP is best of breed and will continue to be run well with low debt.

People get skittish when something seems too good to be true. As soon as all the weak holders are out, it should go up substantially.

With our conservative balance sheet intact for the foreseeable future and in consideration of our strong performance and positive outlook, the Alliance board selected to meaningfully increase distributions by 14.3% at ARLP and 32.7% at AHGP compared to the 2017 and the sequential quarter. I think that should (inaudible) sequential quarters. I'm optimistic that ARLP's low-cost operations and strong market position will support additional quarterly distribution increases in the future.

------------

I like the part about additional quarterly distribution increases in the future

Damn the six month chart looks brutal, and arlp keeps getting drubbed. But that dividend tho

And it's still very thinly traded, but the director just bought 10k shares and ownership and institutions are sitting on most of the shares.

Buy more?

196k shares traded on this beautiful summer day. The guy that runs the joint just bought 10k shares. I hope it keeps going down I have a fat dividend on the way that's getting reinvested.

It looks like a buying oportunity. And I was going to buy a lot just now. But there is this quote of $20.something on buying side of this stock.

Obviously I'm amateur in buying single stocks. I do index funds.

But that seams like a huge difference and f....g rip off by brokers charging $20.3 on buy side when the stock value is 17.9 or so.

Can you guys explain this? Thank you. Like I said I'm kind of newbe buying single stocks. Complete dummie.

I'm using my Vanguard brockerage account and the quote is 20.2.

It gives 2 prices - bid and ask $17 and some change when you sell and $20 and change when you buy. That's how am I understanding it.

First thing is that there are "market makers" who always get the cut between bid and ask prices. You can't avoid that. They are part of the exchanges.

But it's actually illegal for your own broker to buy stock lower and then sell it to you at a higher price. That's called "front running".

When you buy, one way is to do a "market order" which means "buy at whatever the price is now". That will get executed immediately, but won't get you the best price.

The better way, IMHO, is to do a "limit order" which means "buy at this price or lower, or don't buy". That may be slower to execute, but you will get the price you asked or the trade won't happen.

I remember the day someone explained this to me. It's paid off sooo well over the years.. I've always wanted to explain this to my nephew who is now 19 but I know he's not interested and I only see him on holidays.

Over 2 decades and I still send that guy Christmas cards.

Do that, would probably very useful for many. I just left Schwab recently after day and long-term trading with them for close to 5+ years and a brief but intense spat with theor horrible CS which led to to the divorce ;) They have really gone downhill though StreetSmart Edge is still a decent tool.

Yes, my own philosophy is that just as a house has a value which you can calculate from rent, a stock has a value you can calculate from the company's earnings.

This is a textbook "value trap" but ya it's fun playing the ponies sometime . . .

My BAC-PL is earning 6% (until the common hits $65) but I added some more ARLP @ 18.20 which is currently 11% yield.

If & when they cut the divvie we're dead in the water, but if they recover their bizness we should at least get our money back via the dividends before the whole thing goes titsup.

Yup and they just increased it last quarter. I wouldn't expect them to cut for at least a year and they might increase the dividend further.

I don't know the particulars, just looking at the dividend history -- the enterprise sorta ran out of gas in 2016, trimming the 68c divvie down to 44c.

Oddly, the price had moved from $50 peak a couple years previously down to $10 right when that happened (I believe that's when iwog backed up the truck)



Going back in time I see this entity steadily went from a 6c divvie back in 1999 to the 68c peak of 2015.

if the company can establish that its income and thus 50c divvie is reliable this is an easy double or even triple from here.

if not, back to $10 it goes I guess.

2-3x seems very optimistic imo. I know in the past a 50c div supported a price like that, but I feel at that time there was a much stronger expectation of future growth that allowed such a high share price, and we don't have that same likeliness of future growth anymore. I'm basing this on the forecasts for coal prices and demand in Illinois Basin & Appalachia, where ARLP's coal is mined (2/3 & 1/3, respectively). The few I've seen forecast more or less flat demand, or maybe slight decline in Appalachia.

At 10% yields if the company can retain its cashflow it can just buy back stock, further strengthening the coverage.

this is the happy place Apple is at, event at 2% dividend yield, since it has SO much cash to get rid of each quarter.

but yeah, like Apple this is a "burning match" no doubt.
