  • Crank Up Your Portfolio's Yield With This Rock Star Fund [View article]
    I don't think there is anything "relative" about paying more for a stock than it is worth. Buying NCZ here is no different than paying $1.06 for a quart of milk with a retail price of $1.00.

    Does it not bother you that NCZ is trading at about a 6% premium to NAV - it should.

  • Oil & Gas Royalty Trusts - Opportunities Or Value Traps? [View article]
    That's what I thought. Have owned several perpetual trusts over the years - think that DMLP is about the best of the bunch since they can expand operations.

    I'd like to learn more about your favorite MLP's, but it appears that I have to pay for it.

  • A 10.6% Yielding Energy Issue For Your Income Portfolio [View article]
    I note that you do not own any of the stocks that you write about. Do you ever intend to hold any of them?

  • High Yielding Kinder Morgan Should Yield More Soon [View article]
    Unfortunately, the author doesn't seem to have a clue about the relationship between KMI and KMP.

    Useless blather.

  • 2014: The Case For 'Reverse Rotation' Into Bond CEFs [View article]
    None of the taxable bond funds in your table are even close to the 52 week low discount to NAV.

    Would avoid any of these until the discounts approach the 52 week lows.

    Thanks, too many folks have forgotten what CHRISTmas is really about.

    I have looked at UIT's a bit, but I have enough trouble keeping up with stocks.

  • My Best Idea For 2014: Newcastle Investment, An 'Aging' REIT [View article]
    Thanks, I owned NCT for a while about a year back and did well with it. Will wait a quarter or so before getting back in - NII is important to me.

    As I mentioned in a prior reply, some folks are not bothered by ROC and some are. You can find a lot of articles on SA addressing it.

    My name is Bob; I just use akaralph as a screen name. My first Golden Retriever was named Ralph and he was a great dog, so I decided to use his name.

    Does it bother you that NCT's NII is not as yet covering the $.10 dividend?
