Note: I can't get rid of that winking blue emoticon that is at the start of my post. I am not messing with you. I promise. Just ignore that winking blue face. It is not supposed to be there.

Anyway:

Good afternoon, my fellow bargain shoppers.

Today, I am asking if anybody has any thoughts on HBI. Hanesbrands makes boring, affordable underwear.

Over the past 52 weeks, it has been down over 8%. Now, it is coming up from its 52-week low.

The dividend is 3.38% with a payout ratio of 40%. HBI is not among the Dividend Aristocrats, or even close. But the current payout ratio is tame enough, though I think I heard that something totally insane was going on with that a while back, but I can't find that info right now. Debt issues maybe?? CEO? Not sure.

I am not looking for a skyrocketing price, just some upward and onward. And while waiting, the dividend is not too bad. I am just wondering if this recently ugly duckling has a chance of turning into a SWAN?

That's all I know so far. As always, I appreciate your thoughts. (except for the Buffett Bashing )

The reason its yielding over 3% is because the stock is half of what it was in 2015 .. With dividends reinvested its yielded MINUS 8% during that time vs a PLUS 9 % for the SP500. Knock yourself out if you think its hit rock bottom.. Dont know anything about its payout ratio, EPS trend etc, but for my money there are plenty of better stocks yielding 3-4%. There are also many Simply Safe followers here. they could tell you the safety rating of the dividend

I really like the title Kenswing gave this thread when he started it a few months ago and titled it “Anyone Buying on This Pullback?” It has been an interesting discussion.

Continuing with Kenswing’s theme, I am asking a question, today: Is anybody watching 3M (MMM)? Opinions?

I got chicken a little while back and went a lot more conservative, after the big drop before X-Mas...and then when the DJIA bounced back to just under 26,000.

While it may climb even higher, with this being the longest bull run in history...it's just my opinion we're due for a pretty large correction soon.

And while I may lose out in the meantime, I don't suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out)...because NO ONE can time the market perfectly.

I hung on during the Great Recession when the DJIA dropped to around 8,000 and am darned glad I did...as the DOW increased by over 2 times from then to up to 2016.

I keep thinking about the billionaire who was asked about how he became so wealthy and his response was..."By selling too early."

Just like toilet paper...people will always need underwear.

In fact, if toilet paper makers were to start to drop and showing lower/flat volumes...it might be time to even increase your position on underwear.

After all...accidents happen.

The reason I brought this up is that I own a few shares of KHC as the result of an inheritance (wish I didn't). Plus I own some Berkshire Hathaway and am well aware of Warren's eating habits - blanch! I wonder if he accepts that younger folks have gradually been stepping away from processed foods for years and due to modern technology are able to obtain tasty, fresh, nutritious high quality foods which they prefer to what most people used to have to eat during most of the last century. His dismissive comment about KHC processed food product sales during the BH annual meeting - product sales cycle up and down - does not align with the actual trend of KHC processed food product sales, downward.
Very good sources and excellent information.
