  • Commonwealth REIT - Sometimes Lip Service Gets Boot Service [View article]
    Joe Red,
    Good work. The proxy I received this week is green and I mailed it today.

    I also sent a request to the Portnoys on April 1st to speed up the process. Tim Bonang notified me today that he forewarded my email to the Portnoys.

  • Seadrill's Latest Jack-Up Deals Could Enhance Long-Term Revenue Growth [View article]
    HEATHER, Thank you for a well written article. I did some research on my brokerage website on Mar 17, 2014 and then purchased 500 shares of seadrill at $33.22. I think the company is well managed and the risk/reward to me is favorable. My yield on cost is 11.75%.

  • CommonWealth REIT Comments on Recent Downgrade Warning by Moody’s [View article]
    DCLAUDEW, Thanks for your reply. I also owned rental real estate and did a lot of the work myself.

    Corvex/Related claim that the Portnoys and RMR were paid too much. A graph I received showed about $700,000,000 in fees to RMR since CWH started. I do not know if this figure is accurate but I will try to find out if it is true.

    dclaudew, Do you think Adam and Barry Portnoy and their friends would resign from the board and elect all independent directors? Also do you think that the compensation should change from a percentage of assets to a compensation plan based on the increase in the share price, a base return on assets and a base return on equity?

    I own 5,000 shares of ARR common stock. I disagree with the author. I do not like when companies buyback shares; especially when the board gives shares to employees as gifts, additional compensation or options.

    ARR should have increased the dividend. If ARR management is self serving, we shareholders should do something about.

  • SandRidge Permian Trust- Ugly Updated PV-10 Priced In? [View article]
    This is the first time that I have read an article about Sandridge Permian Trust. I think that some of the comments imply that if the author's assumption are incorrect; and oil, natural gas and ng liquids prices go down to say $70.00 per BOE three or four years out, then distributions will probably be lowered and the market price of shares will decline. Then there are the comments about hedging, derivatives and covered options. Sounds to risky to me.

    Thanks for the article and the comments. I have been convinced that this investment is too speculative for me.

  • Glass Lewis Recommends CommonWealth REIT Shareholders Vote to Remove Entire Board of Trustees [View article]
    OUT WITH THE PORTNOY'S.
    The above comments are exactly how I have felt about the management of CWH over the past six years. I own 1,500 shares of CWH common stock.
    I have voted to remove the current CWH board of trustees. My gold card has been mailed. If you are a CWH shareholder, please send in your gold card.

  • National Oilwell Varco: Strong Dividends Set To Continue [View article]
    CMSRLH, I agree. The author should have put the dividend yield in the title of the article.

    It is not easy to retire and live only on income from capital gains. I am 71 years old and I am interested in safety of principal and dividends over 7% on an annual basis. I see too many overvalued stocks in this market.
