  • Veteran Surprised With Keys to New Home as Bank of America Completes 800 Home Donations to Nonprofit Organizations Serving Military Veterans and Their Families [View article]
    The media and government really shouldn't be promoting something like this. It's hard to loot companies when they're painted in a realistic lighting.

  • U.S. derides Countrywide's "Hustle" program, wants $864M from Bank of America [View news story]
    Actually,

    The government has replaced the tax and spend government, with the tax and fine and spend government. You have the remember, once the wallet has been opened, it will not be closed. BAC is an open wallet. File lawsuit. Collect millions.

    The government is no different that looters in a riot. It's just taking what it feels like it deserves.

    For your own sake,

    Why throw good money after underwater money? Why not invest it in something else?

    Alternatively, they aren't guiding towards an increase because of a projected worsening in in lease commencements, increased CAPEX and higher property taxes will continue to erode the price.

    Honestly, I'm not sure. My plan is to save, do my due diligence but, likely to invest into the Dividend Growth Income Index in January.

    I think lowering it would be disastrous. They have a history of raising every year for the past 9 years. Lowering it in 2015 would ensure dividend growth investors sell.

    "The only way we can meet our 2014 distribution requirement will be to raise our dividend to a level that gets us to a 100% payout of taxable income."

    Ouch, wonder what that spells for 2015.

  • Digital Realty Trust Management Discusses Q3 2013 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I think the trend will unfortunately continue, there has been a continual decrease in the acquisition of income producing properties, higher property taxes and continued delays in lease commencements will run the risk of driving this stock price lower.

  • Bank Of America Could Be On Sale Soon, Again [View article]
    Hmm,

    You seem pretty sure regarding BAC and it's trajectory. I wonder, as you seem to be inferring that it's a likely outcome it will reach 8 dollars again, why aren't you short BAC? What are the risks of being short BAC?

    Alternatively what is your year end 2014 and 2019 price targets for the stock?

    For someone whom takes such a usually detailed view, your judgments on this stock seem short sighted.

    The revision comes in lower than any analyst predicted mind you. Also if you look you'll see delays in lease commencements, and higher property taxes. If you add in some 2014 tapering and higher interest rates, you're going to see quite a bit more downside.

    10m higher expenses, lowered 2014 expectations below street consensus, delays in lease commencements, decreased in high margin acquisitions, higher property taxes, all bad.

  • Wait Until 70 For Social Security [View article]
    Haha,

    Social Security at 70. 35 years away for me, I always give a good chuckle when someone mentions anything about social security and the future.
