  • Vladimir Putin Puts 'Sanctions' On Visa And MasterCard [View article]
    And who first started sanctions? And who is pushing Russia toward isolation? All because DC and NATO could not make a clear sweep of the Russian warm water naval base, after causing a fracture in the Ukrainian government, thinking to easily capture oil and mineral lands for the West, lands that WWII German armies failed to conquer.
    Old fashioned conquer and take over was reinvented in the regime change game and privitizing resources for western corporations. Its getting to be old stuff, understood except among blind folded Americans.

  • The Drums Of War Are Beating: Prepare Your Portfolio For An Escalation In Ukraine [View article]
    Note Joe Lunchbox's reference "Alas Babylon" which reflects ancient Babylon's fall. But before its fall, note the method of taking over nations: reading in part, "... your merchants were the great men of earth, because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery" (18:23).

    The truth is getting out-- its not Russia, its us. And it is our administration that "does not have your interests at heart." Its all for globalization and privatizing resources for corporate interests. One senator recently slipped and said that Russia is next.

  • The Stars (And Russian Troops) Are Aligned For Higher Gold Prices [View article]
    Concerning inflation, Japan intends to raise wages, the first tiime in six years, and the reason surprised me. It was to contain deflation. And now I know what the US wage talk is all about, and it will some time before I become concerned with inflation.

  • The Stars (And Russian Troops) Are Aligned For Higher Gold Prices [View article]

    With sniper fire that killed demonstrators and threats that led the president to flee Ukraine, one could argue that Russia had cause for concern and moved to stabilize Crimea—and one could hope for the incursion to soon blow over. But alas, the West is anxious to tighten its grip on the old Soviet Union and stirred up opposition, exploited an opportunity to make Putin loose face, and by doing so the US and the West initiated a secondary crisis. And there are plenty of pundits that rely on fear for profit.

  • The Nuclear Option: Russia's Threat To Dump Treasuries [View article]
    I understood that Mr. Sergi Glazyer's suggestion to dump US bonds was predicated on US sanctions; and regardless of his failings, the idea is in the hopper. Further,
    1) With US sanctions, Russia may simply need to raise cash.
    2) With the CIA collaboration affecting another regime change ... a snow slide reaction against US reserve currency status might occur.
    3) The writer fails to consider that Russia has been supporting minority populations. as did secular nations of the Near East. But regime change = chaos.

  • Chimera: Don't Ignore These Red Flags [View article]
    Thanks to IncomeHunter for saying it as it is. Where there is smoke there is fire --and neither NLY nor CIM have moved effectively to put out the fire. So plenty of "red flags" are there.

    I held a stock during the 60s until it went bankrupt and my father, who was younger than I am now, never let me forget it. I learned.

  • Each of the six independent directors of Chimera Investment (CIM) purchased 18,588 shares of company stock the day after Christmas at a price of $2.69/each - summed up, about $300K. They're the first insider buys of 2012. [View news story]
    Don't be fooled by CIM insiders!

  • A check of mortgage REITs as the Fed looks to continue banging away at their net interest spread: Among the pure-agency REITs, HTS, which slashed its dividend last night, -2.3%. Also, AGNC -1.2%, but NLY +0.8%. The non-agency players mostly fare better, DX -0.1%, IVR -0.3%, EFC -0.1%[View news story]
    I noted that my CEF and SLW were up today, but I didn't make the connection with REITs until you spoke here. Thanks. I'm going to work the charts and see how the correlation runs. I did buy more AGNC today.

  • 2 Heavily Undervalued mREITs Offering Investors Double-Digit Yields [View article]
    And what else did Mr. Schilling not say or did say or should say or could say?

    I could say that if AGNC bought CIM I would have second thoughts about holding my AGNC stock.
