  • GSV Capital Remains Undervalued With Shares At 50% Of NAV And Upcoming Catalysts [View article]
    GSVC has gone from a CEF to a BDC and now to a RIC?
    Poor management decisions while charging 2% mngmt fee and 20% of the gains
    Keeps people out of this fund.

  • How To Invest In Limbo [View article]
    John,today 7/25/14, BSJE ,BSJF have
    Fallen in share price while their underlying
    NAVs are steady. These funds are selling
    At a discount to their actual portfolios
    As ETFs! I'm inclined to buy more as I expect
    The spread to narrow as the funds get
    Closer to maturity. What's your take?

  • Facebook May Be Fairly Valued, But It Is Not A Buy [View article]
    STD is too short sighted for me as I do not do day trading.

    It appears the author has missed the long term trend of FB and the profits generated by following simple moving averages.

    Following the 50 DMA FB generated a BUY signal 0n July 10,2013 after the close of $25.80 and continued to rocket through the 200 DMA on July 17th and has never looked back! This stock is currently trading +23% above its' 200 MDA and shows no signs of stopping! Its up over 190% since July 10,2013!
    Don't day trade FB its a long term hold.

    If you used CEFs ,would you have better returns? More volatility,more trading expenses I assume but higher returns could offset this. What do you say Cliff?

  • Facebook: Battling Google For Eyeballs [View article]
    Since about 70% of viewership are people watching videos,once people start to subscribe to video/tv services then advertisers will flock to these services. Can't wait for video projection on phones,tablets stand alone devices!

  • Firsthand Technology Value: A Strong Buy With Shareholder Activism And A 30% Discount To NAV [View article]
    You say ;"It would be hard to find any peer in the pre-IPO space with stewardship similarly willing and intent to destroy shareholder value in the interest of the Advisor as SVVC."
    Look no further than GSVC!

  • GSV Capital's CEO Discusses Q4 2013 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    You got them figured out Illuminatti.Their incentive fees are huge and so is there loss of -$1.12/share. These guys might be able to continue this scheme for a long time in an upward IPO market.
    If you're reading this comment and thinking of investing NEW money don't!
    Get out on the next rising trend or before the Palantir/Dropbox IPO!

  • Assessing Best Performing CEFs Of 2013 [View article]
    I liked your article.
    I'm confused when a CEF changes it's structure
    And becomes a business Entity company
    Such as the case with GSVC. It keeps reporting an nab
    But the nav isnt as relevant. It's masquerading
    As a CEF. Do you have any comments?

  • Buy GSV Capital Before The Next NAV Report [View article]
    Earnings RE , You are right in that currently both GSVC & SVVC are structured the same. I wasn't aware that RIC status had been approved for GSVC.
