    Tell your wife not to worry. If you study climatology you will see that from time to time temperatures go up and they go down - sometimes for several years at a time.

    Global warming is a figment of the government's vivid imagination.

    On the subject of BQR, it holds several interesting positions - particularly water utilities and infrastructure stocks. This is an area of real concern.

  • How To Buy REITs Like Sir John Templeton [View article]
    Another great article Brad. Like your investment heroes, but can't understand Trump being on the list.

    He did it all with Daddy's money, and, if I am not mistaken has gone bankrupt at least twice. His only claim to being any type of role model would be his hairstyle.

    I guess if you turn out to be correct in your assessment I could, at the very least compliment you on your call.

    Let's see, last November I began posting warnings about the mREIT sector and advised selling all mREIT stocks. In retrospect, I would say I hit the nail squarely on the head.

    We will have to wait and see, but my GUESS is that AGNC will see $15 before $25 and over the next several quarters there will be additional dividend cuts.

  • Top 3 Monthly Dividend Stocks For A Roth IRA [View article]
    You are referring to UBTI for MLPs. You are not taxed until the total UBTI (not distributions) in the account totals at least $1000.

    Assume you mean BDC's. You can get an excellent handle on BDC values by reading the metrics presented on SA by Factoids.
