  • A Tale Of Two Very Different BDCs [View article]
    Zach,

    I may have been a bit sloppy in my wording and interchanged NAV with book value. The book value numbers are pulled directly from the earnings reports of both GLAD and PSEC.

    Todd --

    If I own shares of STUXF.PK how does it work when it starts trading on the nasdaq? Do my shares of STUXF.PK get converted to the new symbol?

  • 2 Dividend Stocks With Potential to Double Within 5 Years [View article]
    If the stock price doubled, you would have to pay capital gains as well. I should have added "Before taxes" to the title.

    Schwab provides the total return (including dividend reinvestment) at 1, 3 and 5 years. There stated returns at these periods for MCD, for example, are 26.3%, 55.8%, and 191.1%. These values are similar to my calculated returns of 25.8%, 52.5% and 191.0%. So yes, I am confident the annualized returns are correct.

    poortorich - I mis-labeled the columns at the top -- it should read 1-year return, 3 year, 5 year, 10 year, but the annualized calculations are correct. The total 10-year return would be 238%. That value annualized gives 23.8%.

    Valid point. I'm planning on doing something similar for the contenders. I'll add yield for that post.

  • Want a 14% Annual Distribution Yield? Try This Pair Trade [View article]
    Todd --

    Nice article. Enjoyed it. Thanks for bringing my attention to GGN.

    One comment re AGNC. Their risk isn't exactly tied to short term interest rates, but rather, the difference between short and long-term rates. Thus, if long-term rates increase at a similar amount relative to the short-term rate, AGNC theoretically should not be materially impacted. You allude to this in your description of AGNC but do not explicitly make such a comment.

  • 10 Stocks Offering DRIPs at a Discount [View article]
    David --

    I agree with your comments above. However, if an investor owns any of the stocks above, they are sacrificing yield by not taking advantage of the DRIP discount.

    Do you know of other stocks that DRIP at a discount besides DEP and EPD? Another stock I follow, DX, just announced a DRIP discount.

    mrhowell -- ARR uses 9x leverage. Given the current interest rate environment, ARR is in great position. However, any changes in the interest rates are magnified significantly given ARR's leverage
