  • Seadrill could cut its dividend Wednesday, Morgan Stanley says [View news story]
    Seadrill has said the dividend is safe throughout 2015, and they're closer to the relevant finances, so Ole Slorer is just plain wrong.

  • Why Am I Confident Seadrill Limited Will Cut The Dividend? [View article]
    What goes on in the options market has absolutely no bearing on whether or not dividends will be cut. Yes, Seadrill may very well cut their dividend, but if you believe this to be the case, write an article showing that the FUNDAMENTALS support this view! Insert scenarios for 3 cases in crude oil prices: 1) the price goes down, possibly significantly, 2) the price stays the same for an extended period of time, and 3) the price goes up. Seeing how oil is a limited resource on this planet, I don't see 1) and 2) approximating reality.

  • WAR! What Is It Good For? Halliburton [View article]
    You forgot the Boston Legal reference:
    "WAR! What's it good for? Absolutely NOTHING!"

    The fact that Halliburton profits from war and we profit from Halliburton is totally perverse. Stop buying the stock. Sell now. Maybe this will send a message to Halliburton management that we want nothing to do with a tool of WAR.

    War is just death, destruction, and maiming. Nobody is really the winner in any war.

  • Monthly Dividend Stocks: 3 Lists To Buy And Hold In July [View article]
    Return of Capital can be a problem because it comes directly from the company, and thus negatively affects the NAV. As a result, the stock price can go down. Return of Capital is unlike other dividends that are covered by earnings, such as EPS or capital gains. These other dividends do not negatively affect the NAV and the stock price.

  • Prospect Capital: Can The Rally Continue? [View article]
    Hold PSEC for long enough, and the dividends will cover your cost basis. What the market thinks of PSEC at that point is irrelevant; what IS relevant is Prospect's ability to survive, and the whether or not the economy goes down with the market.

  • Prospect adds another lender and $20M to credit facility [View news story]
    I watch the news all the time. I have found nothing to dissuade me from holding PSEC stock. I have made mistakes trying to time things before, and have failed. I don't want this to happen with PSEC. I'll keep holding, and will collect the dividends monthly. I expect that the stock price at the end of the year will be in the $11-$12 range, as stated by analysts.

  • If I Were Starting All Over Again [View article]
    You mentioned cutting your rent by moving. However, when renting you need to consider that, if you rent forever, you own nothing at the end. Buy when you can. Then, as you pay off your mortgage, a part of that payment becomes more equity. The goal is to be mortgage-free AND have a place to live when you retire. We did that. We have a $385,000 house in New Mexico, and a $0 mortgage. Of course, we now have to pay our home insurance and property taxes ourselves, but we are paying interest / rent to NO ONE!

  • Prospect speaks to accounting concern; lenders step up [View news story]
    Before the drop, Motley Fool had a positive article: "If the price drops below NAV, you'd be a FOOL not to buy!"

  • Top tech strategist turns bullish; Facebook a circus freak? [View news story]
    It is said that a correction is right around the corner when the last bear turns bullish. That hasn't happened yet, so the market will probably continue to go up. Of course, I could be totally wrong. You never know.
