Trade exit – Pitney Bowes Inc. (PBI) put selling - 1.07% gain

I was no longer comfortable with Pitney Bowes (PBI) stock and thus earlier I changed my mind on this trade. Originally, I was OK to hold this stock in my portfolio in case I get assigned, but after 50% dividend cut the rules changed. For this reason I decided to take advantage of Pitney’s somewhat Continue reading →

New Trade - Pitney Bowes Inc. (PBI) put selling

When I sold ARR today morning I quickly scanned my watch list for replacement. I must admit that this time I was looking for high yielding stocks, closer to 10% yield with a decent dividend growth and dividend paying history. I think Pitney Bowes Inc. perfectly fits my needs. It is a long-term dividend payer.

I was searching for stocks which I can buy, but couldn’t find anything at a decent price. Everything I was interested in is so elevated that I wasn’t comfortable buying at the current price.

I had Corning in my watch list for some time. It was a featured company in Morningstar as a potential new gainer. I like the company what i have read about it so far. It is a four star stock and Morningstar estimates the fair value at $15 a share. My own calculation indicates 17 Continue reading →
