  • 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?

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

  • Low-Beta / High-Yield Stocks Can Provide Protection During A Market Correction [View article]
    Dale - how many folks did that? I have relentlessly tried to uncover stocks and/or other investments (except for shorting) that increased in value during both the bear market of 2007 - 2009 and the sharp correction of 2011.

    TLO and TNT seem to fit both bills.

    If I am not mistaken WMT is the only stock on your list that did not get a significant haircut in the bear market of Oct. 9, 2007 - Mar. 9, 2009.

    You are bullish on uranium and you claim that NLR is a buy for the short, intermediate and long term - yet you do not own it. Why?

  • Reduce Your Portfolio's Downside Risk Before The Coming Market Correction [View article]
    Bob - ACG is not a CV closed-end fund. You can check their holdings on CEF Connect; most have 20+ year duration and are T-Bonds.

    I looked at performance during the severe correction from 4/29/11 (DOW = 12,810) to the end on 8/11/11 (DOW = 10,810) and these were the results:

    TLT $93.89 to $105.55 on 8/11/11
    AGG $106.46 to $108.60 on 8/11/11
    TLO $55.73 to $62.44 on 8/11/11
    LAG $56.31 to $57.61 on 8/11/11
    ACG $7.66 to $7.66 on 8/8/11
    BND $80.96 t0 $83.06 on 8/8/11

    Looks like TLT and TLO are about the best for both the severe short-term correction and the longer bear market.
