    Not surprised about the cut. A little larger than I thought they would do.

    Where is the analysis for why the golden age is over? This is one of the worst articles I have read on SA. Shame on SA for publishing this.

  • Preferred CEF Showdown, Part 1: Flaherty & Crumrine - My Top Pick [View article]
    HPF, another preferred CEF trades near NAV. Why should I pay such a premium? Not convinced the substantial premium is warranted.

  • GLAD To Not Own Gladstone Capital: A Business Development Company In Danger [View article]
    Hi Rich,

    Appreciate the comment. As far as other BDCs go, I don't follow too many others. I am most familiar with GLAD, followed by PSEC and FSC. I am planning articles on both PSEC and FSC post their earnings release.

    Of the ones you mentioned, are any monthly payers (I prefer these to own)?

  • Scott's: High-Yield, North-Of-The-Border REIT [View article]
    zach -- Good to hear. I think the drop may have been some tax loss selling because it seemed as soon as the calendar hit January that it rebounded nicely.

    I unloaded about a third of my position about a week ago. Best of luck,

    Well, I guess I must be wrong then. Caution with statements on performance over the short-term.

  • Alpine Global Premier Properties Fund, Revisited [View article]
    Robert, I am intrigued by AWP, but what are your thoughts on the Alpine management team? Their dividend capture funds (AOD/AGD) are complete garbage IMO.

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

    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.

  • 8 Reliable Monthly Dividend Stocks [View article]
    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.
