  • ModernGraham Valuation Of Public Storage [View article]
    Maybe I'm too lazy to work out the answer to your question, " Who are the others in the storage space?" Maybe the best in this group just won't compare well to other investment opportunities.

    Comparing 10 year stock performance charts of PSA and the biopharmas that you mentioned, I plan to look for more promising possibilities.

  • The Poor Man's 'Carry Trade' - Opportunities And Pitfalls [View article]
    In 2009 I started buying preferreds. I hadn't done it before and so i started out pretty timidly. I found a lot of issues at sub-par prices. It wasn't long before these preferreds became priced at or above par. Now the issuers are calling in their preferreds. It was a good idea while it lasted but that was then and this is now.

  • Apple Vs. A Portfolio Of Solid Brand Names: Still No Comparison [View article]
    I bought a lot of preferred stocks starting the summer of 2009. It was new to me so I was pretty timid at first (wish I had been bolder). At this point a lot of those issues have been called by the companies. I got my money back PLUS -- I've the cash but many of the income streams are gone. Right now I'm using Will Rogers strategy -- "Buy stocks that go up. If they don't go up, don't buy 'em."

    Here in the Jesse James state businesses pay taxes based on their Dec 31 property including inventories. I think that includes raw materials. I don't know whether this destocking and multi-million dollar stock sales by execs are typical for the season.
