Macy’s Deflates, and Now It’s Even More Undervalued

Macy’s (M) share price dropped after the company reported second-quarter results and reduced its outlook for the rest of the year. We view the shares as attractive at current levels and believe the retailer won’t cut its current annual dividend of $1.51, which is yielding 9.3%.

Merger, She Wrote

Television moguls Viacom and CBS – home of NCIS, The Late Show, and Murder, She Wrote – had a satisfying conclusion to their lengthy run on Tuesday: a merger.
