  • 4 Things You Must Know About Buying Stocks Now [View article]
    I only read point #1. I'm just curious if this continues who will be left to buy this maxwell coffee? If no one is employed and not bringing in paychecks how do you expect products to keep the same revenue. It's obviously a more complex equation than what you present. Just curious. Thanks.

    If you go on their websites to build a service package they are integrated and cross selling there as well.

  • PHK: Is It Time To Get Out While You Still Can? [View article]
    The point is that the fund has to earn 19% in order to cover it. It only has the NAV to earn the money on. It doesn't matter if the market price was infinity, they only make money on the NAV. Just be aware of the risks that is all. Good luck.

    Distribution at 19% NAV should be enough to stay away from PHK until they cut it in half. I don't understand how they have been so lucky to be able to sustain it for this long. It is only a matter of time until this thing goes down even further and cuts distribution.

  • Recent Buy - Ventas Inc. [View article]
    Thanks for the article. I was just recently thinking about adding more, just waiting for some cash to build up in my portfolio and hopefully this thing doesn't turn around too quickly when the market realizes that VTR won't be devastated by a rate hike. What would you plan on doing with your CCP spin off shares when/if it happens? Hold or sell?

  • North State Bancorp's Unique Going Private Transaction [View article]
    I see what you mean but realistically we could be looking at 4% for a 10 year treasury by the end of next year possibly, maybe 2017 so I think a wise investor, with a tiny bit of forsight, wouldn't be paying $15 for a bond.

  • Is Crude Oil Correlated To The 10-Year U.S. Treasury Note? [View article]
    Conclusion: No, not really.

    End of story, lol this is why I shouldn't veer from the contributors I follow because I find myself being too sarcastic and the lack of substance is shocking with some of these articles.

  • AT&T Is Officially A Utility: Now What? [View article]
    I held T for almost 5 years then sold leaving only what I had reinvested and taking out my original capital. I don't think anything is wrong with T just see better opportunities for the cash and don't mind holding the small position I now have.

  • 4% Dividend Yield Portfolio: Not Everything Is Going According To Plan [View article]
    Thanks for pointing that out, I read through it. I still prefer my every 4 quarter raisers then. Thanks again for pointing that out though.

  • 4% Dividend Yield Portfolio: Not Everything Is Going According To Plan [View article]
    If CVX has gone 5 quarters without an increase isn't that over a year? Wouldn't you not be able to state "27 years of growing its dividend" more like "27 years, with a few 15 month years, of growing its dividend" That's just my input when looking for dividend growers I expect it every 12 month year. Thanks, good article to read.

  • Main Street Capital Continues To Outperform All Other BDCs [View article]
    Thanks Rose for the advice I will wait until a better entry price. I have success when purchasing more core positions (KRFT, WFC, T...as well as some closed end funds) but it seems like when I get the more "off path" investments they don't pan out (LNCO, CEFL, VTR) I realize VTR is being just hit with interest rate fears and such right now and it will be a longer term winner. I think you get my point though, anything I touch that isn't large cap u.s. gets wacked by something. I'm holding all these positions to see if they can come back but it's wasted capital so far.

    Thanks again :)
