    Another phony meaningless organization with another phony,meaningless opinion. Meanwhile in the real world, Caterpillar stocks are doing better than ever. This organization that SUPPOSEDLY stands for ethical treatment and human rights, has chosen to say nothing whatsoever about Hamas, a terrorist organization that goes around killing children and violates its own people's human rights. Ha ha ha. You are a joke jos the Iranian Islamist Chos.

    Bacheh koony, heyvoun.

    4 Quality Stocks With Double Digit Dividend Growth - Seeking Alpha

    4 Quality Stocks With Double Digit Dividend Growth
    June 24, 2012

    Stocks of companies that boost dividends at high rates of growth tend to outperform stocks of companies that raise dividends at low rates of growth. Dividend increases usually represent favorable earnings and cash flow dynamics that enable companies to boost payouts. They also represent a greater commitment to increasing shareholder value through higher dividend payouts. A universe of stocks raising dividends is large; however, a limited number of companies raise their dividends by double digits.

    Target Corporation (TGT), Caterpillar (CAT), United Technologies Corporation (UTX), and Rockwell Automation (ROK) are four high-quality, favorably priced stocks that have just hiked their quarterly dividends at rates ranging between 10.6% and 20%. These four dividend stocks boast an average dividend yield of 2.6%, above the current yields on the 10-Year Treasury bond and the S&P500 index.

    Apartheid and Occupations are not practices moral human beings invest in, nor do moral human beings invest in companies actively profiting from such practices. These indexes that identify moral and ethical investments are increasingly being relied upon by people of conscience when they have money to invest, I just listened to a woman in my Sunday School class speak about investing her retirement into an index like this. And these indexes will exclude companies like Caterpillar. This is a great victory for BDS, the international boycoot, and divestment movement. BDS was highly effective in ending Apartheid in South Africa, and it will be a big factor in ending Apartheid in Palestine, as well.

    There is no apartheid in Israel, just because you Islamist worshipping morons keep repeating, won't make it so.

    Simply looking at whether CAT's stock is going up or down to seek to assess the effect of this decision is a pretty useless and worthless exercise.

    What *might* have some validity, though, is to track the stock prices of several different equipment manufacturers simultaneously and see what patterns emerge.

    After all, when the market drops more than 1% across the board, it's pretty idiotic to point to CAT stock dropping say, 1.25% that day - and claim 'a victory'.....

    Please note that I'm ONLY discussing methodology here.
