  • Vasco down 11.7% following Q2 beat, guidance reiteration [View news story]
    Um, no, the sanctions have not been lifted, that will be a gradual process if the deal isn't squelched by Congress.
    More importantly, whether or not they are lifted is irrelevant to the case.
    The main point being, some clarity is needed on this and the price needs to show some signs of stabilizing.

    I do not hold any of this, is on my watch list.
    Its now at a good support level but if it breaks down from here could go down a ways, so I'll watch a little longer.

  • April Call To Wait And Buy Gold Below $1,000 Still In Effect [View article]
    I still enjoy reading your stuff. I still read things on SA, just don't comment much anymore, have other interests and more stuff to do. For me its more of a platform to research an investment idea now.
    Reading through this article and some of your comments, the way they are phrased and certain words used, remind me of the late SA writer who wrote under the name of Emmet Kodesh, he passed away in Dec, 2013.
    He wrote quite a bit about PM's as well as the overall markets and various stocks to invest in. His world view was pretty interesting and maybe not dissimilar to yours. Did you know of him, he had some insightful thoughts about whats been going on.

  • Why Lockheed Martin Will Outperform The Market [View article]
    They own enough politicians to give them enough business to keep on rising indefinitely. I will hold this one for years and years and would buy more on any significant pullbacks in price. Cant go wrong with these major defense contractors, the warmongers and neocons will see to that.

  • Prospect Capital: Good Times For Yield Hunters? [View article]
    If you just set your Stockchart term to 3 years you can see the price there. According to Stockcharts it traded between $6.50 and $7.00 in 12/11.
    I guess some charts are wrong or perhaps adjusted for distributions.

  • Prospect Capital: Good Times For Yield Hunters? [View article]

    "I believe the company is an interesting investment at $9.37 -- a level not seen since December 2011."

    You may want to look at the chart you posted, in both May and June, 2014 it was lower than $9.37. In Dec, 2011 it was under $7.00.

  • Don't Buy My Seeking Alpha Picks [View instapost]
    There are many articles on SA posted by authors suggesting a buy of a particular stock, and then little to no follow up after that.
    Anyone who buys a stock based on a rec from any author on SA cannot blame the author for the results.
    Caveat emptor.

    I don't think Mark has any obligation at all to follow up on SA after he posts an article, yet he does do some follow up especially in the comments section. If you want his ongoing information subscribe to his service.

  • Fifth Street Finance: 10 Reasons Why This Double-Digit Yielding Stock Is A Buy [View article]
    Something to keep in mind, if you bought this stock in the beginning of 2014 at a price well under where its at now, their is no reason to think about selling it unless the price gets back to near that point. If you bought it even cheaper several years ago you are well ahead of the game. As long as the stock price stays above the price you paid for it, why sell it and lose the excellent divi?

  • Glu Mobile Poised To Climb 50% By Year-End [View article]
    Mark told his subscribers he was going to sell calls against the position and informed his subscribers how to do this to protect or enhance their position. There was nothing shady going on here, he has been very open about his strategy with his subscribers.

  • Glu Mobile Poised To Climb 50% By Year-End [View article]
    The complainers must not be PPT subscribers so they are commenting lacking information. I sold all my shares on last weeks run up hoping to get a pullback to get back in. Fortunately, here is the pullback and I am thrilled to be able to buy more at lower prices.
    I would love to see the panic sellers drive this below $5.00. If so I will be standing in the check out line with another shopping cart full of GLUU to take home and store with the cart full I got today.
    Its like its an item at the store on sale, price reduced, who doesn't love a bargain?
