  • American Realty Capital Is Still A Speculative Security Suspended In Animation [View article]
    Agree with Brian. I can see ARCP making strategic sales and using the funds to pay off debt. I personally would like a low dividend of .50-60 cents per share.

    I bought ARCP at 14, 12, 11, 9.50, and 8. I have not lost a penny and remained calm during the crying over a $21 million restatement. My biggest mistake was my personal judgement on ARCPs management and Schorsh.

  • Philippines Equity Market Opportunity Boosted By Falling Oil Prices [View article]
    Great work! If the population bomb theorists, environmentalists, and planned parenthood have their way in the Philippines, the birth rate would be one.

    The population of just over 100 million has been growing quickly, has a median age of 23.2 years, fertility rate of 3.07 with 50% now urban based, all the sorts of macro indicators that economists like.

  • Is There Cause For Concern Over BP's 6.6% Dividend? [View article]
    Why wouldn't they issue debt at 4-5% to buy back their stock yielding 6.6%?

  • How Will Herbalife Survive The Latest Evidence That It Is A Pyramid Scheme? [View article]
    I'm in the sales business and over 40% are gone in two years. Does this make our country a fraud?

  • Transocean And Rig Retirement [View article]
    The only name I'm buying in this space is SDLP. 9 of the 10 UDW rigs are leased to at least 2017-2020. Hopefully Oil prices are higher then!

  • Digital Realty Trust Dividend Safety Analysis: A High-Yielding Hidden Gem [View article]
    Thank you Brad Thomas and those FAST graphs. Got most of my client in at $45-$48 price range and will hold for the long-term. Pays better than high yield bonds!

  • The Debate About Whether To Hire An Active Fund Manager To Beat The Market Or Use A Passive Index Fund Is Over [View article]
    Ellis is invested in Vanguard index funds, but his wife is with Capital Group, an active money manager. BTW- Even Ellis says Capital is one of the best active managers.

  • Why Active Managers Underperform [View article]
    I think the active/passive debate is too simplified. If active investing is futile, why is it those that have great investment principles (Lynch, Buffet, Graham, etc) beat the market?

    Another thing I don't like is it's always an annual analysis. I don't invest yoy, but for 10, 20, 30 years. Everyone knows I'm partial to my American Funds (Capital Research Group) and they have done much better than the S&P 500 over the past 10 and 20 years. Thats just the facts

  • Capital Research ups Herbalife stake to 10.1% [View news story]
    Funny you mention Enron. Capital Research brags about how they never invested in Enron due to thier due dilegence. These guys just do not follow the heard. I guess time will tell who is right or wrong.

  • Capital Research ups Herbalife stake to 10.1% [View news story]
    I will make a bet that Capital Research Group is smarter than 99.9% of contributors/posters on Seeking Alpha. I have no dog in the hunt, but I feel much better about HLF and am thinking of getting long.

  • Investors Get Steamrolled By IRA Rollovers [View article]
    IRA's are not expensive. It's what inside that will eat your lunch. These people were suckered with bonus indexed annuities. The broker gets a 10% commission, the client gets a 10% bonus and they have a 16 year surrender charge. The only ones that make money are the broker and annuity company.

    These products should be illegal.

  • Why Do Investors Keep Buying 'Actively' Managed Funds? [View article]
    David - The 5.75% is a one time charge (initial investment amount of $25K or less) and it decreases based on the initial investment amount. For example, if you have $250,000 the upfront charge is 2.5%; $1Million is 0%.

    What do you mean it's very unlikely anyone has made any money with Investment Company of America? It's averaged 12.20% a year after fees since 1934. If you didn't make any money in Investment Company of America, than I guess you lost your money in the S&P 500.
