  • Is American Capital Agency A Good mREIT For The Buy And Hold Retiree? [View article]
    Any retired person (except for those sitting on a few million) has got to take a few risks. Since you have read my articles I don't need to go over the risks present with the mREITs.

    By the way I was being facetious with the comment about feeling sorry for your grandchildren.

    mREITs can certainly be traded, but they are anything but "buy and hold".

    If you look at the history of the mREIT sector, you will easily see that this is not the place for the "buy and hold" retiree, let alone and other "buy and hold" investor.

    I feel for your grandchildren.

  • Unplanned Early Retirement, Part 2 - Asset Allocations [View article]
    Be a bit careful with PSEC. Its NII is not covering the dividend. Might look at others like MCC and TCPC.

  • SandRidge Energy Set To Grow [View article]
    Thanks Lynn.

    I have (at least for now) stopped writing. I have tired of reading articles by folks whom have no real idea about investing, and seemingly are writing as a sideline to pick up a few bucks.

    That is not to say that there are a number of excellent writers on SA, but I am just a bit jaded about the course SA has taken.

  • Surge Energy: 3 Different Insiders Have Purchased Shares This Month [View article]
    Although I own some Surge, I am unimpressed by their CFO's confidence (252 shares) in the company. He must have taken a pay cut.

  • Parallel Energy Trust: 3 Different Insiders Have Purchased Shares During The Last 30 Days [View article]
    The main criticism that I have is the author often uses "insider buying" as his prime indicator. If one delves into insider buys, many times they only mount up to a minute number of shares.

  • Fred Olsen Energy: Undervalued Stock With 10% Dividend Yield [View article]
    "I rate the stock as a "Strong Buy" and a "Value Buy" with a potential upside of 25%-30% in one year".

    Why do you not have a position in FOEAY?

    You would buy a stock based upon an article on SA? Have you considered doing any original research?

    Tesco's revenues are flat, earnings are declining and CAGR is negative. What's to like?
