  • New York Community Bancorp Eyes 27% Upside, Shadows Sell On Hudson City Bancorp [View article]
    Thank you for your effort here. While I agree with what you have to report, I hope that in the additional dilsclosure you are only adding necessary boiler plate, and not really suggesting that everyone pay a full service broker for financial advise. My guess would be that most of your readers do their own DD.

  • Setting Up A Laid-Back, High-Yield Portfolio [View article]
    I think I might come down on the side of getting some skin in the game. I have always found that I am more alert and pay better attention to when to sell when I actually own the security as opposed to "let's pretend".

    Well thought out and presented article. When looking at my own experience, they are very close. Although, I have had good results from perfereds also. No big homeruns, but steady 7 - 8% total returns. Thanks for your time and effort.

    I notice that AGNC and HTS are predicted to pay dividends in 2011 in excess of their income. Is this not a caution?
