  • Best-Now Energy Stock Wealth-Builder Picks, Seen By Big-Money Fund Managers [View article]
    MEMP is truly awsome. Bought about a month ago. UP 23 percent to date and paying me a nice dividend too. I guess your method works. That said my choice in stocks is more like a broken clock which is right twice a day and MEMP must have been at the right time. Naturally I only own 100 shares as way too risky for me. The stocks I buy to hold all go down at least 50 percent and cut their dividend in the first year. Just trying to decide when to sell MEMP. Not good at figuring that out.

    It is inspiring that people who know what they are doing as opposed to me probably can make a lot of money in the stock market. Maybe I will figure this out someday before I go broke. In the mean time just collecting dividends and investing in more bad stocks.

  • Memorial Production Partners declares $0.55 dividend [View news story]
    This stock has done really well for me. Up over 25 percent since I bought it and a great dividend too. If one owned a lot of it I guess one could have made some serious money. I only own 100 shares. Too risky for me to own more. Bought about a month ago at the bottom. Makes me think that people who are way better at this stock stuff than me could really make a lot of money quickly. I would only think of how much I could lose which would probably happen most of the time so I don't invest in risky stuff like MEMP or any oil companies except with money I can lose.. If I lost money on them at $100 oil I will probably only lose more now and I was lucky if I broke even on them at $100 oil. Basically I do not invest in energy companies. Good deals out there if you can handle the risk and know what you are doing but I sure don't.

    Thanks for the reply Tim. Maybe owning some HCAP is in my future after doing some more research.

  • 14% Dividend ARMOUR Residential REIT Should Surprise Many With Its Q4 2014 Performance [View article]
    ARR will not do well with their hedging as long as interest rates will stay low. Based on what has happened with oil prices and the problems with the rest of the world economies raising interest rates in the US would probably be very bad for the US economy. It might also negate any of the stimulus actions of other governments in the world and the Eurozone. I think the FED will be smart enough to see this and not cause a US and/or world recession by US raising interest rates any time soon.

    I have been looking at the HCAP stock as I like to invest in BDCs. Hard to find information about them as they are new and small. Any idea of their exposure to the energy sector? That is becoming something that BDC investors look at before investing.

  • Buy Western Asset Mortgage Capital Now As The Entry Point Is Low [View article]
    I'm usually more a buy and hold person but this is an interesting idea. If the numbers are better than collecting the dividend I should probably try it.

  • MORL January Dividend Will Result In A 24.7% Annualized Yield [View article]
    Got it yesterday on TD Ameritrade and Fidelity. Was after the market closed I think.
    From what I have read on SA Scottrade with its Frip is supposed to be real good for saving brokeridge fees.

  • Update: How I'm Looking At Recent Insider Trading At Javelin Mortgage [View article]
    It made money for me but that is because I bought it low and then sold it when it went up. This is NOT a buy and hold stock.

  • I Hope The Exit Doors Are Wide Enough [View article]
    I don't own NLY but think you are describing a possible buying opportunity when all this happens. If it starts trading at 25% or more under NAV I will definitely look at it. Could be a great opportunity. Bought into a bunch or MREITS after they crashed in the summer of 2013. Have sold most of them and made money on each one and I don't mean by collecting the dividend although that was nice too.

    Currently the only stock I have that is up much in 2015 is an Oil company that is supposed to be heavily hedged. Up nearly 20 percent in a little over a month. I have just a small position as I think doing anything related to energy is very high risk at this time. It is my mad money investment and doing well. Go figure.

    Sounds good. The main thing I did not like about FSC was the management. Maybe this will fix it. Long FSC and waiting for recovery.
