  • Prospect Capital - The Rate Hike Jitters Are Overdone [View article]
    I see you still refuse to post your position on the stock. like I said a little honesty and integrity on your part would go a long way to reducing criticism of you. But the duck dodge and evade tactics are just childish.
    btw I scrolled through the posts and you still haven't posted your position anywhere in any response to anyone that I could find. so that your "as will I"comment rings hollow. As for those 'cheapshots', you clearly took them at me and others, but there are none so blind as they who will not see. If you have no skin in the Game then why the animus against PSEC and those who take a contrary position and opinion to you?

  • Prospect Capital And Risk-Adjusted Returns [View article]
    Now Colorado did say that the Schwab Dividend ETF was a favorite of his.
    That would explain the many supportive articles about it that he has written of the past few months here at SA. He does not say if he has any holdings but given the name I might assume he has recommended this ETF to his clients and may own some himself. That ETF has some interesting volatility as well. He certainly talks up the perceived good points while not addressing some of the other items that are used to support PSEC as you mention. Given its volatility and the small dividend (stock price has fluxed many times in past few months each dip was between 1-3x the annual divy)and it is down this year on overall PPS just like many other stocks/etfs.
    As his additional disclosure statement at the articles end (which many usually gloss over if they read it at all) has some interesting points as well. Maybe he will let us know his position/holdings on this ETF - SCHD and his apparent touting of it. Some investors are SWANs and want a low paying stock/etf others are more risk oriented and willing to assume that risk for higher returns.

    Please scan all of my posts and point out where I have been "obfuscating the truth or outright spreading disinformation" on PSEC.

    I see you have to take the attack approach with me too. Just in your blood or something like that?

    Most posters and contributors have no problem stating whether or not they are long or short a Stock, but I guess you don't read those disclosure statements. Having some 'skin in the game' on one side or the other may lend more credibility to your statements while refusing to disclose what if any positions you have (even 1 share long) tends to raise questions especially in your case when you have been overwhelmingly negative over an extended period of time. You are entitled to your personal opinions but being excessively nasty and snide towards those that don't share them is immature and churlish.

    Typical attack the messenger reply from you incred. Why didn't you answer the man's question? Turn and attack the guy who asks you an honest question but never with the courage or forthrightness to answer straight-forward honest questions.
    As for me I am long PSEC, not all that happy with their performance the past year, but neither am I engaged in any options trading with this stock. So why don't you man up and answer Paul's questions.

    The negative ninnies here always come out and bash PSEC when it goes ex-div with their standard doom and gloom spiels. Hey if they don't like the stock don't own it. but their consistent bashing makes one wonder, are their any unterior motives behind their negative comments.

    Al, TY for your thoughts and comments.

  • Rising Rates Are Good For PHK [View article]
    Thank you for your perspective. Long PHK GOF DHY thinking of adding to the GOF position just out of the Premium to NAV situations (PHK about 25% vs GOF about 6-7%) clearly from a rate of Return pov I would be better off investing in PHK with its current 15%+ Annual Dividend vs the 11+% of GOF.

    That very high Premium to NAV has always been my biggest concern/fear with that CEF. Your article makes some very valid points and now I have to rethink which way to go. I look forward to part 2.

  • AT&T to invest $3B in Mexico; gets Buy rating from BofA [View news story]
    This is only the 1st such installment. The infrastructure in Mexico is so damn bad with so much hard wire and satellite thievery taking place on a daily basis T will have to drop at least twice that on overall security measures along.

  • Prospect Capital's NAV, Dividend, Risk, And Valuation Compared To Several BDC Peers (Post Calendar Q1 2015 Earnings) - Part 2 [View article]
    Thanks Scott once again for taking the time to provide this analysis for us.
    My eyes weren't burning this time when I finished. (LOL)

    Markets still volatile, EU still threatening to go into the crapper. so SNAFU.
    A little stability, especially around the Interest Rate Issue would go a long way towards attaining that stability. Wish the Fed would jack the rate their .25% and go away for the next 12 months.

  • FCC to fine AT&T $100M for slowing mobile data users [View news story]
    I notice you had NOTHING to say about the Customers of ATT getting screwed over. Just an acceptable thing in your eyes?
    The Obama DOJ has cut many a deal with all types of Corps. (perhaps the Biggest with GM and HSBC) and the Democrap Party benefitted mightily from those deals BUT the General Public, Shareholders, and Taxpayers were all left holding a stinking Bag of Democrap.

    Thanks Scott for your usual great research and helpful insights.
    My Eyes are tired and I'm working on a Nice "Port" Buzz so I skipped to the Conclusion portion first. Ever the Good and complete Job.

    It would certainly be nice if the Management seriously considered some of your and others suggestions to boost Share Price and Investor Confidence.

  • FCC to fine AT&T $100M for slowing mobile data users [View news story]
    The FCC gets some money for the Gov't and some of its employees that may have been affected, since it reduced their ability to download porn at work. BUT what about the 10s of Millions of AT&T CUSTOMERS who Got screwed over by their dishonest Policy? Where is the Justice for the Average American Citizen of all races, creeds and colors? Why should AT&T Get off the Hook regarding the Money they OWE THESE Citizens? Could it be yet another Big Money Contribution to the DNC just before another Election Cycle?

  • Prospect Capital Corporation: Is Management Going On The Offensive With Massive Insider Purchases? [View article]
    One thing that all the bashers and naysayers seem to forget or intentionally don't mention is that for every seller there was a buyer. Obviously some folks are looking to make some money on the stock by NOT Shorting it and then Bashing the stock. You/they can trade the stock short-term and make a bit of money or then can hold on to all or part or their shares and make more money via the dividends and any price appreciation at these low rates per share.

    Long PSEC, disappointed to some degree but in it for the long haul.

  • Prospect Capital: A Deeper Look At The Most Hated Stock On Wall Street [View article]
    TY for your insights and observations and for taking the time to actually speak with PSEC Management. (Long PSEC and taking a whupping).
    Way too many Bashers out here lately. one suspects they have ulterior motives (shorts). Not the best stock in the Market but certainly not the worst or the most poorly valued (not for want of trying by the shorters).
