Profit sharing for investors.

Companies that pay dividends usually have policies in place so they are consistent, provided they are making money. CSX is one of my examples. They tell you what they will pay a couple of months ahead, usually something per share (like 20 cents a share).

It doesnt change my stock value, it goes up or down just like any other stock. I just get a little bonus in cash. Its preferred stock so I am in the front of the line (if you arent involved in the company you should have preferred stock anyway, it gets first dibs at dividends but has no voting rights).

I just reinvest the dividends so I get no realized gain (taxes and whatnot). So my ownership increases as I use it to simply buy more shares. As a result, while the stock goes up 18% my ROI for that period is actually 21%. The money from the dividend and then the increase of that new stock I bought with the money.

Rail has been great since they started doing all of that inland port stuff (Kansas and Oklahoma are big hubs for that). And rising gas prices too, trains are more efficient than trucks so more goods get pushed to rail when gas is $4 a gallon. The stock might go down a hair because investors are morons but it always comes back up when the retards get out and the company is making money hand over fist so I am getting a quarter a share.

I should clarify my style, I am at one end of the spectrum or another. I occasionally swing for the fences (like Countrywide Financial) but I tend to do it in derivatives, Im essentially gambling hoping I am the smartest guy at the craps table (and like craps Im a dark-sider, and not just because I am an asshole). Otherwise I am conservative. Like old money "Trading Places" transportation & commodities conservative. For that money the market is a high-interest bank for me.

Is there an easy way to do this with fidelity? (That's where my Cerner stock is)

I bought 100 shares of NFLX when it dropped 3 years ago to $70. Best move I made. Want to look at another crazy stock. Fucking Chipotle. Trading at over $700.

NFLX did well today. I'm disappointed in my company's performance especially considering the contract announcement.

Nope, that's why I pulled my stock. Expected surges upon those deals and only a quick subtle jump.

Probably just doesn't have the exposure.
