  • YPF, Petronas reach deal to develop Vaca Muerta shale in Argentina [View news story]
    Hope YPF comes back to what I paid for it before all the bad things happened due to the nationalization. If YPF where in a country that had a well run capitalist economy I am sure it would be very successful and be a great investment.

  • 8 Reasons Why A New Global Financial Crisis Could Be On The Way [View article]
    Suggest not reading anymore crash articles as they are a waste of time. Use your time to pick good investments and refine you investing strategy. I am sure that will prove useful no matter what happens.

  • 8 Reasons Why A New Global Financial Crisis Could Be On The Way [View article]
    I read Atlas Shrugged and most of Ayn Rands other books. Loved her and loved all her books and I still like Elizabeth Warren because she is an honest politician who is not going to sell us out to the big corporations. If you really read any Ayn Rand there are always good and bad business people in her books.
    The bad business people try to keep her heros with their big new ideas down because they do not want the competition. That is exactly what we are seeing now in America with all the big corporations owning the politicians and trying to keep everyone else but themselves down including people with new and disruptive business ideas. Maybe you don't know those kind of people but I do..

    Unfortunately our economy is based more on political influence now than ever and the big corporations influence the government to be biased in their favor thereby stifling competition so thier quasi monopolies cannot be challenged. This is NOT the free market of capitalism created by equal justice under law which creates progress, opportunity, and a better life for all.

    I am one of those who didn't really look at my brokeridge statement much. Had other things to do like getting my business through the recession since that was paying my bills and yes I got through the great recession with minimum pain. Let it all ride at the investment casino. Had good mutual funds and stocks like T, VZ and Exon.

  • 3 Financial Dogs Eye 10% To 11% August Upsides [View article]
    Nice article. Dogs have sure done well for me in this recent August rally. My Roth is all dog. Hit new highs the last three days. My dogs are doing real well. Other portfolios depressed with non-dog stocks including dividend champions or whatever they call stocks of big companies that pay less than a 6 percent dividend. I'm sure you know the ones I mean.

  • 4 Monthly Pay Dividend Dogs Display 15% To 57% Early August Upsides [View article]
    Last but certainly not least dogs are really a great investment in a market like this. All my retirement accounts were up Friday August 15th. They are now within about 2K of their all time high prior to the current correction. Overall down less than 1 percent from the high. Got to love those dogs especially the MREITS which seem to be very counter cyclical to the overall market.

  • Western Asset Mortgage Capital Turned In A Huge Total Economic Return For Q2. Any Problems? [View article]
    NYMT seems to do a secondary whenever their share price climbs to a certain value over book. That is usually somewhere north of $8.00. Once the price gets to that point they do a secondary which knocks down the price but gives them capital to grow the company. Rinse and repeat. It is up to a little over $8.00 today.

    This is also common behavior for BDCs. I have always thought that NYMT runs their business a lot like a BDC just all their lending is in the realestate sector.

    I went to the site. The information on it is not exactly up to date. Naturally there is a lot of information there so keeping it up to date is probably a big job for a small site. I also did not "discover" any investments that I had not heard of before there. I guess I really keep my ear to the ground in the areas where I invest as I seem to do pretty well on keeping up to date on new companies or ones that appear to be potential good investments for me.
