    Hope you don't, especially when the sales do not come close to approaching one percent of those outstanding.

  • Southern Company: 3 Different Insiders Have Sold Shares During The Last 30 Days [View article]
    The author's articles are based upon insider buys and sells - absolutely not the best (by far) indicator upon which to base one's purchase or sale of a stock.

    Would certainly recommend readers to do their own research - specifically look at earnings, dividend CAGR's, and other financial fundamentals before making any such decision.

  • Avoid Annaly Capital [View article]
    Hadn't thought about the company trading for a dime a share, just a .10 quarterly dividend.

  • SandRidge Permian Trust: Hidden Value In SandRidge's Scraps [View article]
    Knowing how the dividend payout dates work is pretty much basic investing common sense.

    Hard to understand how SA approves articles containing such mistakes.

    This seems to be the fall back for the mREIT crowd. "Even with an (another) dividend cut the yield is still great".

    Guess they will still be saying this when NLY's dividend gets to a dime.

    Even simpler - avoid the entire mREIT sector.

  • SandRidge Permian Trust: Hidden Value In SandRidge's Scraps [View article]
    No, you can buy a stock at 3:59 PM on the day before the ex-div date and still get the div.

    The settlement day is three days after purchase - on the record date. Hence the name "record date".

    The ex-div date is two business days prior to the date of record! That makes it May 13. In order to get the dividend you would have to own PER at the close of business on May 12.

    The EX-Div date for PER is 5/13, not 5/15. You are talking about the record date which is incorrect. You should know this if you are writing about a trust.

    "PER is a much better alternative for a long position than SD's other trusts, SDT and SDR." I like this point as PER is truly the "cream of the SD crap".

    By the way I own PER so am not bashing the trust.

  • How Do You Manage Your 'Low Conviction' Positions? [View article]
    With respect to the MLP sector, virtually all of them plunged about 50% in 2008 - those of us on top of these doubled down at that time. Having held these for several years can create a tax problem upon selling since the basis price would be very low. GEL has recently received some upgrades by the way.

    As far as DX is concerned I would sell as it is an mREIT, and volatility is an issue with all of the mREITs.

    PSEC's NII does not cover the dividend, so it too is a sell here. IMO, MCC and TCPC offer much better prospects.
