  • 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.

    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?

  • Pixelworks Discloses Relationship With Apple [View article]
    Traded right around $5.50 today, at $5.65 as I write this, seems to me we're very close to, if not right at a good place to be buying.

  • Sturm, Ruger & Co. Looks To Start 2014 With A Bang [View article]
    Well, it also fell from its old high of $50 down to $30, quite a drop, when the gun rush was supposedly over.
    From there it went up to $85, close to a triple.
    The long term uptrend is still intact.
    Anyway, differences of opinion are what create buyers and sellers.
    If I thought strongly that this will be a $20 stock as you do, I would put all my funds into the short side of this. Are you willing to?

  • Sturm, Ruger & Co. Looks To Start 2014 With A Bang [View article]
    RGR has a PE of just 11.6
    58% earnings growth
    39% revenue growth

    Gun sales may taper but still stay strong. Medium term there will be another surge in gun sales as income inequality continues to widen and economic events don't turn out to be as rosy as some think.
    If it goes much lower I will buy more.

    If you are a longer term investor the question to ask is do you think RGR's price will be higher or lower than today in 3-5 years from now.

    If you think lower, get out, if you think higher now is a good buying oppty.

    Thats an interesting point. The new myRA plan might be an example of more to come in this regard. Down the road might IRA's be required to hold a certain % in US bonds?
