    Tradevestor-

    You should know enough to check Yahoo's numbers - they are 50-50.

    The conpany's website is a good source - ever use it?

    Until PSEC's NII supports the current dividend, it is not a buy.

    NC-

    Well said. NADL is a real dark horse, but competition is quite limited in the harsh weather drilling sector.

    I believe this point has been shown to be pretty invalid.

    You fail to note that the reason for the $4.31 dividend in 2012 was that in December they paid a "double" dividend due to anticipated changes in the tax law for 2013.

    While SDRL is certainly a great company, your assessment of how great a buy it is now brings up the question "If it is great now, what was it at $34.

    Not a great analysis at all.

  • 4th Strong Quarterly Dividend By American Capital Agency Corp. [View article]
    "Recommend a buy and hold for this solid dividend producer."

    "The dividend yield has dropped to near 11%, but that is due to the stock price appreciation,"

    Where are you getting this stuff?

    AGNC has cut the dividend five times since its high of $1.50 in June 2009. The yield has dropped due to dividend cuts, not price appreciation.

    Your information is very misleading.

  • Polski Koncern Naftowy - An Interesting Central European Play [View article]
    Very interesting article. Over the past few years it seems like Poland is doing well, and some of their stocks are also.

    My one concern here is that, with the exception of Germany, just about all of the countries mentioned are possible targets as Russia reconstitutes the old USSR.

    Notice you do not own it - when will you be putting some of your own money into it?

  • Enduro Royalty Trust Should Be In Your Portfolio [View article]
    These are all finite trusts that have declined and are reaching (or have reached) the required numbers of wells to be drilled.

    These will continue to decline in value until their expiration.

    VNR yields 8.1%. Some smaller cap MLP's include MEMP (9.2%), NSLP (10.0%), CLMT (8.9%), among others.

    I own all of these so I take the same risks as others owning them. I also own BBEP (for several years now).

    But with higher yields comes higher risk.

    I would research the DCF, coverage ratios and CAGR's of any MLP before buying.
