  • Why Nokia Is Fairly Valued [View article]
    Is this author from a different planet? Or, was this article written before September 2013 and just got published?

  • Mallinckrodt Transfers Questcor's Risk Onto Its Shareholders [View article]
    We all keep ourselves busy. Keep it going, Raven, that you have a new target now. Not that I believe it, but there is definite some chance that you will be vidicated in the end. Hopefully, your short position in QCOR is not a huge part of your total investment. No matter we go long or short with our various positions, some of our investments turn into pumpkin. If QCOR short (or, in the future, MNK short) position did not work out as you initially hoped for, that is not a big deal.

  • Will Nokia Double Again? [View article]
    I do see reasons for NOK to continue to rise, but not because of the only reason you discussed in your article: the (discontinued) D&S division. Man, you are lucky. You will continue to reap a good profit although you have not identify the correct reasons up to now.

  • Nokia - Will The Tables Ever Turn? [View article]
    Ha Ha Ha Ha....

    "If the company pays off the charges it will further deteriorate its cash to market cap ratio that is already less than half of its peers'" and too many other lines to quote. Laughing my a$#%&%%$#@$ off. Reads like something written by somebody from another planet.

    I love Seaking Alpha. What I can read on Seaking Alpha can be educational, profitable, entertaining, hilarious, ..., anything you name it, and, all for free. I have visited Israel twice. I love it. It is like a giant museum. When I visit Israel the next time, I will have a new destination. I will visit Seaking Alpha main office and thank them in person for providing this wonderful service. Not kidding.

  • MagneGas: An Undervalued Opportunity In Alternative Energy [View article]
    A stock could go up sharply for a good reason, for a wrong reason, or, for no reason at all. There is no reason why MNGA cannot shoot higher. That said, I just want to comment that I do not believe Santilli's "science" has any basis. He claims that he has "discovered" a new interaction that can bound atoms together to form his "Magnecule." Let's face it. If he is right, he would have already received a Nobel Prize in Physics or Chemistry. Has any of you heard about the story of "Cold Fusion" that some people claimed to have discovered some years ago? This Magnecule is in the same league. Again, I am not saying that MNGA cannot go much higher. It may just shoot into the sky this coming Monday.

  • Sunshine Heart: Potential '10 To 100 Bagger' Revisited - Part IV [View article]
    I had the feeling that a day like today was coming. Anyway, I held onto my 5000 shares with a sizeable paper loss. We are at the mercy of the management. No matter how promising this company/device is, it is not going to be smooth sailing, especially for the US market. Longs need to be realistic. I can only wish that the company makes progress and brings the device to market in Europe in a timely fashion. Maybe, I can get a good new entry point with cheep shares, so that I can retire my current 5000 shares and book a capital loss to offset tax on other positions.

    Anything interesting about SSH lately? What happened to the recent conference presentations? Any development in Europe? Any update from any of you? SSH share price is at a level that could bounce back higher but could also fall off a cliff.

  • How To Generate An 11% Yield On Cost In 6 Years [View article]
    Certainly, if that is what you enjoy, a certain YOC after certain number of years, then please enjoy it.

  • How To Generate An 11% Yield On Cost In 6 Years [View article]
    I agree with you. The current (annual) yield is what really matters. YOC is not a metric to use to evaluate my investment, or, any investment, for that matter. It is a result of cummulative dividend reinvestments over an unspecified number of years (6 years in this article). If you really want to use YOC, you need to compare with the total compound gain of SP500 over the same period of time (and include the capital gain from your said investment, or O in this case, in the comparison).

    Just checked my rollover IRA account to locate tax-related document. I saw this notification: No tax document was generated for this account. Maybe, it will show up later, but, we are already in March.

    Thank you, and I have also done a search and found some other maerials to read. I have not yet received my K-1s form for 2013. Maybe, I can find it among the files related to my eTrade account tax documents. I will find out how complicated it actually is when I get the form.

    scoots;

    Interesting to hear this. I always thought anything that is good for taxable account is even better for IRA, especially for high yield investments. Can you post a link to one of those articles? Thanks.

  • How To Generate An 11% Yield On Cost In 6 Years [View article]
    In a few years, I will find out how my high-yield investments look like. In the summer of 2013, I had the opportunity to purchase two types of high-yield stocks/ETN's, all in my IRA account. One is MORL and MTGE and the other is LINE and BBEP. I have dividend reinvestment for all these positions.

    In the case of LINE, my initial investment has a capital gain of about 50% up to now. Dividend reinvestment has lead to a 7% increase in share count, and the current yield is slightly above 9%.

    Here are how these investments stand now:

    Name, capital gain, Share count increase, current yield
    LINE 50% 6% 9.1%
    BBEP 22% 7% 9.9%
    MORL 16% 13.5% about 20%
    MTGE 23% 7% 13%

    Since this article mentioned ACAS, it happened that I bought ACAS in January, February, March, May, June, and August of 2009. My lowest purchase was on March 9, 2009, the lowest day of the market. I think it was in 2010 that there was a dividend paid out by ACAS (mostly stock dividend, one could also elect to have a cash portion of about 10% of the total dividend). My purchase on March 9, adjusted for the stock dividend (I did not take cash), was at a cost basis of $0.485. It is about $15.5 recently.
