  • The CEF Sell-Off: Time To Buy? [View article]
    It all depends on your situation, but as some CEFs are taxed as income they could be a better choice than a dividend yielding stock (assuming the dividend tax increases significantly in 2013). But most importantly is the quality of the fund. Research the fund, check the history of their distributions, check their investment portfolio, check their management fees (2% is high), etc., etc. CEFconnect.com is a great place for a lot of this info. Thanks for reading!

  • Zagg: 10 Times Earnings And The Shorts Are Sill Not Covering [View article]
    Good stuff, thanks for the article. I hesitated and missed ideal entry (ZAGG) at support at the $7.00 level last week but I may get in if momentum stays strong. $10 to $11 range seems attainable, even in the short term. Thanks again.

  • Markets Hit Resistance, Look To These ETFs [View article]
    Great question. I understand your thinking; if you would've held SDS mid/long term through the 2008 crash you would've made some nice gains. But it's a stats game. Statistically, the S&P 500, and other markets, produce positive returns over long time lines. (Look at SPY vs. SDS on a 2, 5, or 10 year time line.) Betting against the market on a long term basis, therefore, is extremely risky. Precious metals like gold and silver (and their ETFs like GLD, SLV, etc.) can be a good long term alternative investment if your weary of the equities markets.

  • 5 Undervalued REITs [View article]
    I do like NRF, especially as I am a technical trader and the REIT is still trading near its breakthrough support/resistance level. In keeping consistent, however, I didn't include it in the analysis above due to its negative ROE and negative income last earnings report. I'm curious to see what its next earnings report, on August 2nd, will do for the trust.

    I held ANH as well this year, along with ARR. Exited both a little too soon but was very happy with the returns. Thanks for the comment.

  • S&P Breaks Support: 83 Inverse Equity ETFs To Use As A Hedge [View article]
    Thanks for reading. I used to use Stochastic and MACD as my primary technical indicators but with increasingly volatile markets I have become more of a fan of support levels. I still use other technical indicators (Stochastic and MACD) but support/resistance levels tend to be more telling in my opinion. Finviz.com is a great website for quickly finding significant support levels for an equity.

  • 5 Equities Yielding Over 10% With Ex-Dividend Dates This Week: Part II [View article]
    I've never had significant success with dividend capturing. But I do enjoy a good dividend stock/ETF and if I'm looking to enter the position anyhow I like to get in close to (before) the ex-dividend date. With that said, all equities mentioned in this article are offered as speculation, not for dividend capturing. Thanks for reading.

  • Tesla Stock Collapses But Looks Massively Oversold [View article]
    Great info, thanks. I agree, a great buying opportunity at very strong support at the $22 to $24 range. Also, many of the short sellers (40% short float) likely closed out positions on the quick price dip; this could, in turn, drive the stock back up.
