  • TICC Capital For A Sustainable 12% Yield And Upside Potential [View article]
    I'm with Ralphy, PSEC is cream of this Crop, but not adding as rate pressure rises.

    Finding something worthy of investment in this Public Market is scary. PSX appears to be trading at a Discount, per M*. My plug is in similar to BDCBZZard.

    Oh yeah, you will learn to listen Closely to Ralphy!!

  • My Wife's IRA: Cutting Losses, What Next To Buy, And Why? - August 2013 [View article]
    JD,

    Bryce_In_Texas has corroborated the professional advice offered by two money handlers our family has used. We listened, acted far too late, selling out of the LINN holding at a loss. The Professional Money Handlers direct Roth Retirement and Conventional SEP accounts. MLP investment vehicles are not as advantageous in those accounts. So many Investors Trusted too much in the MLP space and I see renewed scrutiny thereby and certainly merited.

    Are you hedging now for the possible collapse in Equity Prices?

  • High Yield CEFs To Spice Up Your Portfolio [View article]
    User 427,

    Did you get into and past the 2nd Grade? I pressed "Like" for you. Wish I had you here, for that Gold Star your entitlement screams for.

    Watch out for those CEF's with too much leverage, the conspiracy?

  • Getting Your High-Yield Debt At A Discount [View article]
    User 427,

    Will Barry benefit by your investing this year? He needs Profit to rake the tax into his IRS coffer. Are you using the deferment and or avoidance option on Profit (ah, possible Brilliance)?

    When did you last review the CEF's using NO leverage? Is UNII worthy of considering in your view? The CEF's likely will never measure up to your investment criteria if you continue to over weight your decision making criterion on whatever Pond's 20 or so advisors instruct?

    User 427,

    Long HYI.

    Full odds behind the pass line and cease the sucker bets..
    Be a good boy and don't smack like a pig when dining.
    Pay your debts on time.
    Do not vote for Barry again or you will not be brilliant any longer!

    I pressed the "Like" option to your statement as my best attempt to give you a bit of accolade, that praise you likely missed in your rearing?

  • Capitalizing On Cannabis: A Review Of Publicly-Traded Marijuana Stocks [View article]
    Ted, Alan & Spark,

    Never underestimate Competition from Growers and Suppliers. The self serving managements are already toast. But wait, if they All herd up into one MLP then their self service and unsustainability may last a few years out? I know how to grow weeds, that is the easy part. My State is now Brown (Texicans) and there is No Better Marketing Available! The evidence rests with the 80% Brown running the Oilfield in Texas, emphasis on Service Sector.

    Oh yeah, the Market rests with the Browning. Embrace it, don't waste the fight to Deport!! The next five years has a WAVE of Legalization and you better KNOW your Market!!

    Can't wait for Tejas to Legalize Pot!!

    Alan,
    I am following you on this area. I have posted previously my disclosure on NEVER partaking and my interest in growing it as a Cash Crop in NE Texas (When absolutely Legal to do so!!).

    Two questions after reading this article:
    1) Can the Buzz Part of the plant be harvested and immediately rendered into something edible/drinkable (for those non smokers)? Or does it require some curing/seasoning process?
    2) Big Market in smell-good herbs like Lavender. Is the de-buzzed Hemp a candidate for merchantability in the smell-good Market?
