Thinks their business is being made obsolescence by technology. Less and less stuff is being done by hard paper and more and more is being done through the Internet. If you own, he would suggest you take your lumps, get your capital loss and move on. 22% dividend yield.

(Market Call Minute.) Hard to tell where this is going to go. Looks really cheap but it is hard to sell if there is an obsolescence issue in their business.

High-yield is always dangerous. It is indicative of a structural problem. This is not a growth industry. 29% yield and the market is telling you not to believe it.

Feels this is a long-term hold, primarily because of the 14.7% dividend, which seems to be stable. Business overall in the general economy has been slow coming in from new directions. Doesn't have great expectation of rising stock price on growth.

Had a good 1stquarter. Have a high payout ratio. About 12% dividend yield and even if they had to cut this, it would still be an attractively priced stock.

It is not showing very big growth but it is a very interesting business. Two of major banks are very stocky clients and have been for years. Pays a nice dividend, is being maintained, having been cut a long time ago. It is not in trouble but it is not going to be exciting.

Dividend is sustainable. 10% right now. Fortunately an analyst has started covering it again. It got a reasonable report. It’s been solid recently so it should be all right. They can use losses from other companies to sustain their dividend.

Specialty publishing of labels, annual reports, tickets, etc. The little weakness reflects the weakness in the economy. Will probably have to do a 20%-25% distribution cut from 25%.
