Buying Pitney Bowes Stock
I think the turnaround at Pitney Bowes is underway, with revenue up significantly in 2021 compared to both 2020 and 2019. Net loss has basically evaporated in 2021. In my view, the dividend, currently yielding 3% is sustainable, and so these shares are an attractive place to park capital. Most intriguing to me is the fact that shares are very pessimistically priced, suggesting upside as the market digests future positive surprises. Short puts are also intriguing. It's possible to make 7.5% on a strike price ~39% below the current market price.
