It was recently announced that Philip Morris put in a generous offer to buy Rothmans (of which Mr. Cheap is a little less than a majority owner).  On news of the offer, Rothmans stock shot up above $30 / share then sank back to a bit below it (to $29.71 as of the holiday weekend).  […]

I was asked last year what I had been buying during the stock market meltdown. I had been saving the bulk of my margin for just such a buying opportunity, so I definitely went shopping. I previously posted my stock position as of the end of July. Since then, on margin, I’ve put another $15K […]

Woot! As I checked my E*Trade account this morning, I see that I’m up a super-sweet $72.60 as a dividend payment from Rothmans (I feel like I should go buy some smokes for impressionable teenagers with the cash ). I was wondering how it would work, since I hadn’t seen any of the cash (the […]
