  • Update: Atlantic Power - From Bad To Worse [View article]
    You have my deepest sympathy. I only have 200 shares maybe for a couple of years and I don't think I will ever break even. Anyway I bought when it was high so paid a lot for it. Glad you did break even. I figure this company owns some infrastructure such as power plants so someone could very well acquire them if they are close to bankrupcy.

  • Mortgage REITs lower amid higher rates [View news story]
    Also they could probably make them take orders in popular languages in the USA like Spanish and English. I find that some fast food workers do not know "chicken English" as in what is a drumstick etc. in English. English is my preferred language but I think all popular languages should be covered. Easy enough to program the robots I think.

    I agree and at least they could make the robotic order takers be polite and get your order right.

  • 3 Russell Dividend Dogs Roust 10% To 23% August Upsides [View article]
    I used to own NTELOS. It is a small rural cell phone company. I think I at least broke even on it. I would describe its risk compared to other high risk investments in this way: compared to something like NTELOS a stock like PSEC is like an FDIC insured bank account. That said i will look at NTELOS for my brokeridge account. They are actually doing cool things to help the rural people get high speed internet. whether that will make any money or not is questionable.

    What makes you think that it will happen on October 10th? I am wanting a buy point and a secondary would be ideal for that.

  • Get Paid While You Sleep: REITs That Pay Monthly [View article]
    The entity offering them is a big Swiss bank that is global. If I thought we are getting ready for a recession I would sell my ETNs. In a growing economy I think they are OK. Buy, monitor and hold if it looks OK is how to own them and in my opinon most MREITS. If one does that correctly one can make a lot of money with MREITS.

    If I remember correctly the issues of decay and rebalancing have been discussed in some of the articles about MORL. You might look them up if you are interested. In my opinion few high yielding investments are real long term holding investments. One must keep an eye on them and watch earning etc. and move in and out of them as needed to continue to make money. If one does that successfully they can be quite lucrative both for dividends and even appreciation of the stock.

    Nothing wrong with T. Probably safer than money in the bank if it weren't for FDIC. Long T and lots of MREITS.

    A lot of companies use those ATMs to get capital to grow their business. The BDC PSEC also does that and uses the money to grow.

    MORL is an ETN not an ETF. Long MORL

    Also MORL which is a leveraged ETN for MREITS which pays a very high dividend monthly of course.

    Did you get paid for doing "link building" for this company?

    Have you ever thought of getting a more efficient heating system. If your furnace has any age on it a new one would probably be much more efficient and save you a lot of money over time. You might check it out.

    I have an all electric house and electric heat is very expensive. The system is also very old over 20 years. Just estimating what I remember about my VERY HIGH bills I think I pay about $3,500 a year for energy in total for my house. Probably somewhat less if the winter is not very cold but last winter was the coldest one we have had in maybe 10 years or more.

    By the way my state has very high deregulated electricity and the cost of electricity has at least doubled since I am in this house.

    NYMT has also done well in periods of rising rates, at least in the summer of 2013.
