  2. I would like to say that any company could give you a high dividend yield if it pays out all of its profit. However, paying out all of its profit means that if there is any profit downturn at all, that dividend yield will not be there if it is a 100 per cent payout, the company will have to cut the dividend back in line with the lower profit.

    Because of the Obama administration lack of respect for at least having a budget it leaves this country with no direction so I would like to see a dividend category that shows any companies that put a one time dividend before the year ends just for that reason a president who has no value for what it takes to be a leader. Lets call it the USA DIVIDEND because of no direction for what the future brings. There already has been some companies who try to keep there share holders happy because of Obama's lack of direction for what the taxes will be so they have pumped up this last year end dividend but that would be nice to know, like HFC they are not the only company that wants its investors to benefit from Obama's lack of direction. Just a Patriotic thought and now the 12 biggest charities who all there people who they help are going to the White House and say we got you elected and now the biggest contributions are the people you want to tax which means they will give less to charities, Obama wants the USA to have to rely on Govt. and Socialism he can not have both and he just bought all new Drones from CHINA AVIATION why did he not say that before the election they are being delivered by ships in ports in CALIF,TX AND NEW YORK so the union longshoremen can unload them, how much does he get on his face and they still think he is a AMERICAN, KENYA believe that if you can not look at the bill of ladings and borrow more from China for your children. Obama is as close to being a communist that there is that is his style of Govt. the Exec. order he uses to put the screw to us ask the parents in Dover about there children in boxes Obama does not care just now he gets to watch his Chinese Drone movies in the White House and then after milk and cookies from his mother in law on the third floor who we pay for turns the lights off and tells him it is bed time what a excuse of a President.
