  • It's Almost May, So Go Away  [View article]
    Sell in May is as old as I am ! The secret to selling in May is selecting which of the 1/3rd of years it doesn't work !

    As a perma bear I normally sell,but, NOT this year ! This run up has been 90% foreign and do to world economic problems in the EU an their problematic countries the FED is getting too much help with the US Bonds. Also, this is causing the USD to remain bullish against the currency basket we measure it against. This strength is causing problems for the BRICS an China has continued to buy record amounts of Treasuries to help keep the YAUN from soaring..

    Thus, don't fight the FED is stronger then sell in May. And, with mega help from China which is actually the largest economy by real $s I am staying long !

    With stops of course !

    It's only 500 more DOW points before US participants throw in the towel and get off the couch an buy ! That rally I will sell !

  • The combined valuation of Newcastle Investment (NCT) and spinoff New Residential (NRZ) could exceed $15/share, according to the investor presentation which sees the two generating $1.11 in dividends. New Residential's peers sport an average dividend yield of 7.2% and Newcastle's, 7.7%. However, healthcare REIT yields are closer to 4%, and Newcastle should approach that figure as it builds its senior housing exposure. (earlier[View news story]
    And just think.. We grabbed this just a short while back in April under 10.. We sold by STOP in the mid 11s and waited ! We were lucky :>)

  • Don't Expect Pitney Bowes To Slash Its Double-Digit Dividend Yield  [View article]
    Great work here AB ! Not just because I´m a PBI bull.

    The new CEO has taken the bull by the horns and stunned me an other PBI longs when he sold off a division PBI had already written off ! He also has done a good job building a new team and more importantly the entire group of insiders did buy or add PBI shares on open market buys before he even was hired..

    This tells me much. Once upon a time we did own two chains of mailbox businesses and know PBI well..

    They have started several new lines to diversify from the old hardware bussiness and the CEO coming from IBM was on hand to assist IBM do the same metamophisis.

    I do think as you state PBI has the cash to continue the dividend and still fully fund ongoing opearions without skimping !

    PS. too bad your not long :( That would make PBI a 16 buck symbol :)

  • Too Busy For Investors: IBM's Absent CEO Isn't Alone  [View article]
    Ms Rometti was IMHO a spot filled by a female for the sake of having a women and since getting her Green Jacket has been on the social circuit more often then not !

    Lawrence Peter had a well known view on a person like this.. Promote them too get them out of the way & having a women as a front person is totally P-C nowadays !

    I sold IBM near the high and moved stops up on everything when we hit the 5th new high in April,but am still bullish and see the DOW much higher in 2013 ! So, I bought IBM back Friday.

    The buyback is scheduled and I believe they will sell off more of the hardware business including the rumored server line. This will fuel a larger buyback.

  • 90% Of Green Energy Stocks Will Go Bankrupt... So Buy The Sector?  [View article]
    Sad title ! Why not change it too 90% of green stocks lack the energy too survive !

    China ! China's new leaders were just smashed by reports that fine coal dust is 4th largest killer in Asia & 700K/year.. China will become the clear green leader and faster than all think. They will not be using half the worlds coal in 5 years !

    Social media will help millions fight pollution in China an pressure the new Gov.to go after the 1000s of coal users from just paying minor fines an pumping the pollution all over the world ! Your going to see some of the new EPA ideas moving offshore to many users via the UN !

    @rapag, what can't the $ 65 buck tablets I recently ordered for all the students in the grade schools we built do ? There 32 gig with dual cameras and android systems ...

    Smart phones WILL be a simple commodity ! I've seen these things over an over in my 81 years earning a fantastic living in the market !

    Please don't compare cars to phones ! And, I can tell you I was one out of a thousand WS ers warning on car companies !!!!!!!!

    Not one of our clients had car company stock ! EVER !

    They filed for bankruptcy & some more than once..
    And, within 3 years Tata Motors will sell more $4000 cars then the next 3 company's best models combined..

    BBRY & NOK were giants ! GIANTS in there day & now just a small % of groupies might let them pay the bills until the planet is filled with fantastic Asian smart phones in all colors an shapes for $ 50 bucks..

    I just ordered 2500 Chinese 9 1/4 " tablets for two high schools to give out and we just locked in an $88 price.There is nothing they can't do except have a fancy logo !

    The 5 billion who will eventually be buying smart phones are not worried about security ! There worried about enough food for the week ! However there countries don't plan on hard wire phone lines ever.So, they will be buying the cells !

    Your all missing the point ! I've posted links where China is selling good quality smart phones for $65 and viola I posted India articles where there selling them at $ 50..

    They both will get better and better in a fast amount of time and someday soon the WMTs will sell them in bins by the checkout and the AMZN's will give them away when you buy something over $200 bucks..All major manufacturers will see ppl wake up and see there $s can be used for more important things and the handful of tech geeks can't drive the share prices of the majors !

    BBRY ( I'm long ) will be fighting dozens of companies not just NOK and yes, I saw BBRY got 5% of recent US market,but, all smart phone sellers are all in trouble looking just 2 years out.

    I'll let BBRY fans drive the shares up a bit and I'll scalp my trade profits,but, I road AAPL from 85 bucks to 700 & sold. I saw the handwriting everywhere even though 99% of all Analys said $ 1000.

    I also go once a month to 3 different telecoms to pay the bills on all the phones we use an see all the brands in displays,but, ppl grabbing the $89 Asian smart phones and I'm told they outsell all the others 20 to one.The BBRY AAPL SamS NOKs split what's left.

    PS a recent example of this was flat screen t/vs.. Wonderful things to have and $ 1200~$1500 for 32 inchs.. Now there & 89 bucks and have all sorts of circuit boards in them an do all sorts of stuff ! And, were talking a 32" piece of equipment ! So, why can't a 4" be $ 29.00 !?

  • Pitney Bowes - Avoid This Dividend Siren  [View article]
    Yes, but,this company has 31 years of dividend raises & cash is increasing. I'm retired now,but, we owned two chains of mailbox stores for 45 years and know PBI well.

    We have contacts there and were urged to buy at $ 10 & we grabbed more at $12.. Sometimes the right group comes along and this time we are there..

    They will continue to see stronger revenues from the new lines and this economy gets more global every day and in that area PBI is leaps an bounds ahead of all others.And, the USPs EBAYs an many more are using them ..

    Your safe not owning ! But, IMHO do not short !
    Buena suerte

    Steadily winding down the mail hardware business ala IBM winding down 80% of their hardware business.And, morphing into services. PBI besides moving into services has great new lines bringing in increasing $s and brought in a CEO who was a key person in IBM reworking their business..

    Your the one who seems to be clueless to PBI's situation. When 18 insiders buy on open direct buys it seems they are not part of the "well-informed investors" they are the ones who truly know actual facts on the ground !
