    Solid earnings as usual. The stock does not shine, but it is a safe haven in true sense of stock investment.

    Management indicated clearly enough during earnings call that they have specific plans to expand to "adjacent industry".

    As solid a company that exists today. Great dividend yield, little debt, smart management. In businesses that are not high flying but provides solid returns. Stock will fluctuate, but more on dips. Long term as good as it gets.

    fruits?
    Tobacco merchant Universal Corp. UVV, -1.65% said late Wednesday it has agreed to buy fruit and vegetable processor and supplier FruitSmart, aiming for a "new growth opportunity." FruitSmart "is well-positioned to capitalize on recent shifts in market dynamics and consumer behavior including a secular shift towards health and wellness," Universal said in a statement. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed but Universal said it expected to fund the acquisition with a combination of cash and debt. The deal is expected to close in the current fiscal year and add to the company's bottom line in the first fiscal year after closing, the company said. Shares of Universal were flat in the extended session Wednesday after ending the regular trading day down 1.7%.

    Solid results, great dividend. However, they better do something tangible in expansion to "similar business".

    Down 8% on an ex-dividend of 1.25%? Lol? So much for efficient markets.

    Solid earnings as usual. Great dividend and safe business model. Also, new food business shows some movement in positive direction. In total, this is a well-managed company.

    This is the low price range entry point, and don't expect it drop much further...The chart says it all.

    this company has been around forever and yahoo and ameritrade have no estimates for future earnings, i guess no one covers this stock

    Dude
    Tobacco stock with low debt and over 7% dividend? Allright, the earnings dropped somehow, but that did fluctuate in the past, too. I'm long.

    UVV is down from over 60 in late May. I took the opportunity to convert some of my shares from my Rollover IRA to my Roth at $49.93 on Thursday. I pay lower tax on the lower price and get the 6% dividend tax free hereafter. With a lot of tax free Roth income already, I will try to stay in the 12% Federal bracket. The dividend will pay the Federal tax in two years and any capital appreciation will be tax free. I believe this is a good strategy with solid companies. You can also trade within your Roth tax free if something gets a little frothy and a different buying opportunity comes up.

    High market valuation so all about the dividend here - slight rise in rates and stock is under some pressure.

    This stock guided by dividend pay schedule more than by earning reports.

    Solid company that's been around for over 100 years, and raised dividend over 36%...Unheard of!

    Solid earnings as usual. Some bumps in new businesses should be sorted out.
