  • Still Bullish On MORL: February Dividend Brings Yield To 36%  [View article]
    "yield only counts when you buy and when you sell. At all other times you should be trending the actual dividend payments."
    Very true and very profound. I will remember this phrase and apply it to how I look at my income investments.

  • Argentina: Why This Time May Be Different  [View article]
    I sure hope YPF has some upside. Would be happy to just brake even on it. If YPF was a well run oil company in a well run country I think it would be a very successful business.

  • Oil Spill: Stellus Energy Woes Could Leak Over To Its Investors  [View article]
    Just went to their website. Here is a list of their investments from the site
    I saw 3 energy companies. One a coaling mining company, One oil company with some novel way of extracting oil from old wells and one oil field services company. The rest of the portfolio seems well diversified. None of these companies are the ones at the investment link from your llink. I am assuming they are no longer invested in those energy companies. Might be a good idea to ask investor relations what their current exposure to energy is rather than make inferences as to what are probably old investments.

    I have Fidelity and in my experience it takes about a day from the time you put in the money until it is in your account ready to trade.

  • The Fed Refuses To Fold Its Hand  [View article]
    Japan just went to negative interest rates. Seems the USA is the only developed nation that is raising rates. I guess Obama just stimulated the economy too much so the FED must rush in to cool it off. That's another thing we can blame him for.

    Looks like MORL and CEFL are somewhat less likely to get accelerated than BDCL. I have never bought BDCL because I don't like some of the BDCs in its index and it pays quarterly.

    Thanks for this article about these UBS ETNs. I do not own this one but own MORL and CEFL.
    Do you have any thoughts on CEFL relative to them shutting it down? You did not mention it.
    With market swings as crazy as they have been in 2016 I believe it is best to just ride it out since everything may go up tomorrow. However these ETNs are not well suited to that approach. That is why I will not buy any more of them. I think maybe others may also think that way.

    MORL is a ETN Exchange Traded Note. It can be called by UBS if it loses a lot of value quickly. Read up about that on their website before investing. Long MORL. It is cheap right now by the way.
