dipy,

on the other hand, DBD would lose the fee transactions currently associated with ATMs. it would depend on DBD's ability to corner the "cash card" market if the world ever went to a cashless society.

the stock's had a nice recovery in recent weeks. it seems to be reversing its downtrend in a solid way. maybe the stock will get above $30/share by the end of june.

DBD already has expertise in the "cash card" area. They have set up many such systems in university campuses in the country.

And also, regarding "if the world ever went to a cashless society", that's a point too. I have visited some countries in Asia where the ATM would be "tomorrow's technology"! So DBD has a lot of opportunities to grow their ATM business elsewhere in the world.

In any case, my investment strategy is to stay invested with DBD as long as it continues to increase its dividends.

Yes. Remember, investors are supposed to buy stocks before they go up. Not after! <G>

dipy,

DBD sure has had a great run in recent weeks. what's up with that? it's up about 35% over that time.

Yes, it is up 30% or so from very depressed levels. Recall that it had come down from highs of near 50. So, even at the present price, it is off 40% from its all-time highs.

Hi all,

I'm also a DRIP investor with DBD. I faithfully send my monthly DRIP contribution to Diebold and have great faith in the management and their products. Thanks for the post Gregg on the iris activated ATM machine. The other day I saw a CNBC television clip on this new ATM machine. Though Diebold wasn't mentioned in the clip, there was company logo shown on the side of the machine.

I have been exited about Diebold for a long time. I even become more exited when the annual report arrived a few months ago and there was a lot emphasis on restructuring and refocusing the company.

I believe we will see the stock move in the next year (makes me glad I was DRIPPING during depressed months).

I belive the slower sales for Diebold were caused by the slowing sales of the ATM machines to banking institutions (I believe Diebold is the gorilla in this field). The slowing sales were most likely seasonal. Diebold now has a new generation of ATM machines with newer technology. Banking institutions will upgrade their present ATMs with the newer machines. Lets face it, as the ATM machines get older they wear out, maintenance increases, and of course using the iris ID machines will save the cost of producing ATM cards. Also, with the Y2K fears subsiding, this will be positive for ATM machine sales. Good luck with Diebold.

Dave

dipy,

at least the stock is being accumulated again. i did not add to my position when it reached the low $20s, but i think the stock is still a good buy at its current price.

what other stocks do you own via DRIPs? i have INTC, PAYX, CL, GE, and KO. i'd like to add SGP, MDT, SCH, and maybe WAG or LU.

Michael:

I don't have any DRIPs. I own these stocks through a deep-deep discount broker. Sort of like setting up and managing my own DRIP, so to speak.

I have built my portfolio around stocks listed in "Moody's Handbook of Dividend Achievers". Apart from DBD, I have PLL, WRE, MCD, PBY, MO

I think you have a good selection of stocks. Of them, I think GE, KO, SGP, MDT and WAG are "Dividend Achievers".

Good Luck.
