What Did You Buy Today?
#41
Was going to buy ULVR today but it's already up 2%.
Going to wait until Monday and then buy

Lewys, what's your investment time frame? I don't see how a few % points will dictate your decision on buying a business for the long term. Sure it makes you feel better, but in the grand scheme of things its irrelevant. You can always average down

In the past ten days I initiated half-positions in CBRL and GSK.

The market gave us a gift in October with a minor pull-back, energy and industrials were hit the hardest. I added the following partial positions to my portfolios: BP, OXY, COP, CVX, XOM, IBM, BDX, DOV, JNJ, KO, EXC, SWK, V, MSFT, OKE, LLY, BOH, FEZ, DIA, SPY, XLE, MMM, and DUK. My cash strategy is to hold 10%-25% cash in each portfolio so I have available cash for purchasing additional shares of my favorite stocks on dips like we experienced in October. Because I periodically sell partial positions when I reach a target profit, the cash is quickly replenished. My annual trading income exceeds my annual dividend income on most of my stock positions.

If you're going to hold this long I don't see the significance of it being $1 over $95?

I bought Conoco Phillips. It looks like it's a great value right now. I also averaged down on IBM, but only a small amount (literally 3 shares).

Today I initiated a seed position in ROK : Rockwell Automation

Quote:It is a provider of industrial automation power, control and information solutions.

You won't find ROK on the CCC list, but it should be on the Challengers list next year. I expect at least a 10% dividend bump before the New Year http://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/rok/dividend-history

Okay, that's very helpful. Thank you. And Ted, as we've gone through the share buybacks, so you're running a little ahead of the initial plan, and you've got a new authorization out there. Should we expect the buybacks to continue well into next year?

Theodore D. Crandall - Chief Financial Officer
I think the expectation should be that we will continue to exhaust our free cash flow after acquisition spending on dividend and share repurchase. And so we will do that this year. We've may run a little but ahead of that depending on how cash flow comes in Q4 and depending on what we spend in Q4, but I think that's what your expectation should be going forward.

Jeremie Capron - CLSA
All right. That's very clear. Thank you very much.

Some of the bullets points of why I purchased:

77% of shares held by Institutional + Mutual Fund Owners
0.4 Debt / Equity
Last decade outstanding shares have reduced from 189MM to 140MM
PE < 20
Payout Ratio ~40%
Next year EPS bump of ~19%
10 year ROIC average of 21.8% vs a WACC of 10.84%
Current yield 2.1%. Expect ~12% bump before 2015

Looks interesting, have to like the growth its seen since the recession.
