  • Closed-End Funds: The Best Way To Play An Elevated Stock Market [View article]
    JGT pays its dividends in the currencies of the companies that it owns. Therefore you gain exposure to foreign currencies through the exchange rate when the dividend is credited to your account.

    I don't think this guy has a lot of knowledge in this area.

    21% of CEN's holdings consist of El Paso, Kinder Morgan and Boardwalk. No wonder you do not own it.

  • SandRidge Permian Trust- Ugly Updated PV-10 Priced In? [View article]
    The Oct $12.50 calls are presently at $.70. If you sell them and try to roll forward and up prior to October you might be able to increase the quarterly distribution by $.35 each since there are two remaining before October.

  • Home Loan Servicing Solutions: This Complicated Business Is Worth Understanding [View article]
    Let's see - "a few employees" and located in the "Cayman Islands". Sounds like a real upright company to me.

    What are the odds that they could disappear overnight?

    I have looked for those, and sadly they do not.

    However, if you are looking for CEF's that perform well even in bear markets check out: FDI, ICB, VBF, FMY and MIN.

    Interesting article, but the conclusion to be drawn is to be out of stocks and CEF's during a bear market - period.

  • Prospect Capital: This High-Yield Investment Is The Best In BDC, Part One [View article]
    Unfortunately, PSEC is not the "Best in BDC's", or you would probably already own it.

    With BDC's you need to look for those whose NII covers the dividend. PSEC's does not.

    You might want to check articles by Factoids - he provides the most in-depth coverage of BDC's that you will find perhaps anywhere.
