  • 10 Undervalued Companies For The Defensive Dividend Stock Investor - February 2016  [View article]
    I am not sure that this article is properly titled but I enjoyed reading it very much. I would say that all of these stocks have been thrown into the dumpster without regard to underlying quality of earnings. All (except MAC) are indeed seriously undervalued IMHO. Most are already on my watchlist however WRK is a company new to me. Thank you for this write up.

    @saneuser, did you expect NAP to go straight up? If so, invest your money in money market funds....If you ever find any stock researcher that writes about stocks that only go up, please let me know.

    PCG can raise gas and electricity prices as high as they want, they own the Cal State Public Utility Commission. Folks in California are voting with their rooftop solar systems. Solar is recession-proof.

    papaone, BBN is nice but I keep my position size low due to the threat (small, I know) of inflation and higher interest rates.

  • Best Positioned REITs For 2016: Author's Current Holdings And Potential Additions Analyzed  [View article]
    Williams ER, you are missing out on a very long term play on information/data. Data centers such as DLR and COR and several others have very long runways with the wind at their backs. I do like most of your existing selections although GOV tends to be a bit controversial. I too believe that the healthcare REITs are well positioned going into 2016. There are also some more obscure REITs such as HASI and LAND that are very much worth looking into.

  • High-Dividend Stock Yields Over 13%, Had Record Earnings, Goes Ex-Dividend This Week  [View article]
    @donpizza, don't hold your breath waiting for this author to respond to your question, he doesn't respond.

    My "sort of" answer to your question is GMLP is a liquid tanker and GLOP is an LPG tanker. Many believe that there are more LNG tankers on the water than will be needed for many years. The opposite appears to be the case with the liquid tankers, especially the shuttle tankers. Investing in the shippers is a lot like investing in the airline industry. It is real easy to become a millionaire if you start with a billion.

    Doug, thank you very much for the update. It has been a very tough time in CEF land. Is is great for buyers but not so much for owners. These are the kind of times where doing nothing is the right thing to do but it is hard.

  • Northland Power - Renewable Energy For Europe  [View article]
    Rick kooi, so what caused the global warming in the middle ages when Greenland was actually green? Or was caused global warming a million years ago?

    Great article. Nice to see some recognition of this under-followed company. Just a note, this stock is a fairly thinly traded company that has bounced back and forth between $12 and $14 so it is a bit high right now. This will be much safer once the really big projects are finished and the price of oil starts going back up so the Canadian dollar will be a tail wind.

    J Mintzmyer, one of the most common faults average investors make is investing while looking in the rear view mirror. While I know nothing regarding Sensible Investor, I do know that two of his alternative stocks, MMP and MIC are great stock selections. At this point in time NAP has dramatically narrowed the gap between dirt cheap and just cheap. There are lots of cheap stocks. There are not very many really dirt cheap stocks. NNA is still dirt cheap IMHO. JMTC....

    kalu, NAP is a common stock and CPLP is a partnership. If you have an IRA I would buy NAP. If you have an open account (not IRA/ROTH), CPLP would be my pick. I am actually reducing my NAP next week and will be moving into NNA ahead of earnings.

  • Raytheon's Dividend Is Nice But Overlook Valuation?  [View article]
    Very complete article, thank you. I agree that RTN is very close to being fully valued. I would love a chance to buy at $100 but alas, I seriously doubt Mr. Market will give anybody that opportunity anytime soon.

    jasonvance, you are right but how long will the tight supply of ships exist? Iran has a fleet of old ships that can be put back into use relatively quickly.

    J - Nice call on NAP. How much do you think NNA will benefit when they announce earnings in a few weeks?

  • Hedge Fund Investing: Yadkin And NewBridge Have Entered Into A Definitive Merger Agreement  [View article]
    Hi Maudes Capital, I use limit orders unless I am trading a dow 30 type company where the spread is usually only a penny. On a stock like NBBC where the bid/ask is much larger I only use limit orders so I do not ever get a really bad buy or sell price.
