    Schneider first dividend is $0.05 share.

    So for $100 investment you made $0.25.

    For $10,000 you made $25.00.

    Smart business people some of you folks are.

    Smart business people know you don't buy stock to profit on the dividends. Maybe do 5 minutes of research..

    Buy more Sccccchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhnieder stock bud, I won't compete with you. You could make 100X what they made so far in a passbook account at any bank.

    Proving once again you know nothing on the subject. Stock is either a long term investment or a short term bet on making a profit on selling. If I buy 10k shares of stock today at $1 a share and I sell it tomorrow for $1.20 a share I profit $2k in a single day. So Mr MBA, what Passbook account do you have that can match a trade like that?? Hmm??

    And since you bring up Schnieder and stock. I have a friend in Schneider choice program doing Day Trading. That little "what if" is a condensation of what he's doing. I follow his trades regularly and witnessed him having multiple $1k profit trades in the course of a single week.

    Because of the feds manipulating interest rates dividend investing is not why stocks are bought, they are bought for capital appreciation.

    As a general rule; growth companies pay no to very little dividend while established large cap companies pay higher rates.

    SNI is not a large cap. i. e. don't expect a dividend.

    10,000 shares is $200,000.

    I'm going to bet my paycheck against yours you don't even have 25% of that in cash.

    Now we're talking about trading rather than dividend.

    So you would be willing to risk $200K to make a $1K?

    Exactly what school teaches that math/ logic?

    I'd rather spend the $200K on real estate, that is only going to escalate, you could rent the property as well for lots of cash. But heY what do I know.

    If you found some sucker to buy your $1 stock, magically at a 20% increase in one day, he would be just that, a sucker. Might as well go take advantage of an old man playing poker.

    Post us your Sccccccchhhhhhhhnnnneider earnings.

    You wanna compare big paydays, I got one for $167K, no tax liability, but your a lot more knowledgeable than I am.

    So please, post us all that Sccccccchhhhhhhhnnnneider money your making. For your $10K investment you now have enough to get yourself a cheeseburger at the J.

    Company has strong financials so buying on the dips is the way the little guys can make money on Schneider National and currently its a BUY according to my Webbroker. GLTA

    Where to begin. . .

    Dividends do NOT equal profits. Schneider actually reported earnings of $0.15/share yesterday for the first quarter.*

    So your hypothetical $10,000 investment wouldn't return just $25. At the current price, your $10k would purchase 537 shares. If SNDR continued paying $0.05/share quarterly, you would end up getting $107.40 annually. That's 1.07% (slightly more because of the quarterly payment). That's about the same return as the best savings account rates. Additionally, you would still own a piece of a profitable company with its inherent risks and rewards.

    How important are dividends in determining the value of a stock? Amazon stock trades at almost $1,000 per share. They made over TWO BILLION DOLLARS last year. Their dividend? ZERO! Berkshire Hathaway makes billions of dollars and hasn't paid a dividend in over FIFTY YEARS! Oh, and that stock trades for $245,220.00/share. Suckers! Who else. . . Facebook doesn't pay dividends, eBay doesn't pay dividends, Priceline doesn't pay dividends. The list goes on.

    *From marketexclusive.com May 11, 2017:

    "Schneider National Inc (NASDAQ:SNDR) reported Q1 2017 earnings this Morning, coming in at $0.15 per share, beating Wall Street’s estimates of $0.13 per Share. Revenue for the quarter came in at $1.01 billion missing the streets estimates of $996.33 million"
