  • American Capital Agency's Q2 2015 Book Value Projection [View article]
    We keep getting these recommendations regarding discount to book value but AGNC as well as the other MREITs continue to show that discount to book value means very little when rating an MREIT a buy or a hold.

  • Apple sees downgrade, defenders following FQ3 report; shares -5.1% [View news story]
    Actually, I don't think it is crazy. I made a mistake yesterday as I tried to short too high and then did not get my short in before the plunge. Lack of follow through cost me a lot of money. I own Apple so am not happy with the recent performance. It's the way it works. The analysts have finally gotten wise to the Apple expectations game and therefore going forward it will be harder for Apple to sand bag. That is the way it is as good number do not mean anything if they don't meet expectations. Don't fight the market regardless of how seemingly irrational it might seem.

  • Apple Watch Sales, PC Shipments, Microsoft-Nokia (Podcast) [View article]
    The Apple watch is in beta mode at best. Their heart rate monitor, for example, is a joke.

  • Annaly Capital Is A Steal At $9 [View article]
    At this point, aren't the possible higher interest rates priced in? Or, with MREITs, is nothing ever priced in?

    You need to talk to some other people.

  • Wind And Solar Will Soon Become The 'Least-Cost Option' [View article]
    You went a bit too far there with the mass murder. Solar has been coming down in price rapidly, exceeding expectations. Solar, of course, is just one piece of the puzzle but the way things are going, it will be the rational choice for the consumer. No mass murder required. There will be suffering in the future but that does not mean we cannot prevent a catastrophic collapse.

    Yes, people will adapt but many won't, like the hundred that just died from the heat in Pakistan. Many people will have to move but it is doubtful if there is any place to move to or if they will be welcome. In essence, it is global warming that will, in effect, result in massive deaths, if not mass murder.

    What does this have to do with socialism?

    The president has nothing to do with interest rates unless you are saying he is dictating policy to the FED.

  • First Solar: A Few Reasons Why This Solar Stock Is Primed For More Upside [View article]
    Isn't it also true that FSLRs manufacturing costs are lower as well? So, even if they have the same efficiency, they will be cheaper than the firms who use a different technology.

  • MORL's Still Attractive Dividend Yield May Exceed 30% [View article]
    You should point out that total returns for MORL have been negative for the past year even with reinvested dividends.

  • First Solar Is At A Tipping Point [View article]
    I have been following solar PV since the 70s. From that perspective, the current costs of solar are absolutely spectacular. Regardless of which company does well, we all win. I am in the red right now with FSLR but will stick with it for the long haul.

  • Addressing Western Asset Mortgage Capital's Perplexing Dividend Cut [View article]
    I am not concerned about the dividend cut per se but share the concern about lack of transparency. We shouldn't have to speculate about why they cut the dividend.

    I do not understand your comment about performance if you are talking about stock performance. Over the last year, it has performed better than just about all the other MREITs. They lowered their dividend but it is still has one of the highest yields. This is not to say it won't perform poorly in the future but I do not think any of us really know how that will turn out.

    Dividends are not nice if losses exceed the dividend.
