  • Prospect Capital's (PSEC) Management Presents at 2014 Wells Fargo Securities Specialty Finance Conference (Transcript)  [View article]
    Am I correct in thinking that PSEC may be fighting the SEC initiative because it will prevent them from collecting the same fees as the current system. Inclusion of these companies on their balance sheets will eliminate the somewhat confusing practice of 'loaning' money to these companies and then having them pay 'dividends'.

  • Is Frontier Communications A Buy After Its Recent Drop?  [View article]
    Concerning the revenue increase I have a question. I read that PSEC has had a practice (legal I believe) of infusing money into companies they own and, in turn, being paid 'dividends' in the same or very similar amounts. That does not appear to me to be real revenue as it is basically a net zero. If anyone can explain the logic that exists here I would be very happy.

  • Siemens Back In Play For Alstom, General Electric Shocked  [View article]
    I lived in France for several years and learned much that is not good. Regarding France's fondness for the USA, one needs to increase their dislike for pretty much everyone. They certainly are not fond of the Germans. Montebourg was elected as an anti big business advocate and is probably just trying to live up to his billing and is livid that GE negotiated with Alstom without his blessing. GE should have negotiated a larger break-up fee but perhaps they thought the deal was done and sealed.
    Vive La France

    I own 17k shares of GE and feel that it is one of the safest I have. Very comfortable waiting for each chapter to unfold
