  • Prospect Capital Or Medley Capital? [View article]
    I do not know Charles Sizemore; many folks respect him. He named Prospect Capital as his top pick for 2015. Read his Forbes contribution. I have no PSEC shares, but when I run across something interesting, then I like to let you know.

  • Prospect Capital Or Medley Capital? [View article]
    I enjoy reading articles by BDC Buzz; I'm amazed with his research and the writing he does. This stuff is too complicated for my old brain, so I'll take my chances by sticking with MAIN. Whatever your druthers or wherever your scene, have a healthy and safe two-thousand fifteen.

  • Prospect Capital And The Cat And Mouse Game [View article]
    When I need some laughs, then I read articles about PSEC, and the subsequent comments. Happy holidays to the SA crew and everyone who dares to invest.

  • Connecticut Water: A Stable Dividend Stream In An Uncertain Market [View article]
    Mr. Harry: Your thoughtful and well-researched contribution helps keep me focused on why I invested in Connecticut Water Service, Incorporated. I have been dividend reinvesting CTWS since my initial purchase during August, 2013, and I am pleased with the results. I tend to do better as a long-term investor, and I like small companies that try enhancing shareholder value. Have a nice holiday season.

  • Chatham Lodging Trust: Still An Attractive Yield Play [View article]
    December 12, 2014, at about 8:15 PM EST, i went to the Chatham Lodging Trust website and perused the November 2014 presentation. 21 pages were there for investors to read. I am not into personal attacks anymore; sometimes, I hold my nose when the vehicle in which I am traveling passes by dairy farms.

  • Chatham Lodging Trust: Still An Attractive Yield Play [View article]
    I am holding my initial CLDT purchase from September 19, 2014, and dividend reinvesting it. Monthly payments are being generated from a higher yield, which makes me feel fine. Your excellent research is always encouraging, for which I am grateful. Wishing you and yours happy holidays.

  • Prospect Capital: What Comes Next? Part 7 [View article]
    December 12, 2014, Main Street Capital announced some interesting news. Go to its website and read it. I have long-term and short-term MAIN shares. Since I can take some speculation, Thursday, December 11, 2014, I made an initial investment in Bar Harbor Bankshares. I cannot guarantee that BHB will keep raising its dividend for another 14 straight quarters, but I enjoy investing in small companies that are shareholder-friendly, well-managed, and have good-looking payout ratios. I will dividend reinvest it.

  • Does Microsoft's Momentum In Hardware Matter? [View article]
    Think, "Microsoft CRM Dynamics", and read Michael Hamlett's fine Seeking Alpha contribution about Harte-Hanks. His article is one reason I am an HHS investor. The company seems shareholder-friendly with a consistent quarterly dividend, and it has made some personnel moves, trying to improve earnings. Harte-Hanks might be a good stock for the more adventurous types, while Microsoft is a great, solid holding. Mr. Ehrman's effort is certainly appreciated.

  • Harte Hanks: Looking Small For Big Returns [View article]
    Your contribution is very informative; it helped me make a decision to buy HHS shares Thursday, November 20, 2014, and get some of my "earning nothing" cash working. It will be put on dividend reinvesting. Mr. Hamlett, I appreciate your efforts.

  • Update: Simulations Plus, Inc. Earnings [View article]
    October 27, 2014, I used Google Finance and noticed two positive announcements concerning SLP. Dow Chemical will be using Simulations Plus software. WKRB, an Ogden, Utah think tank, posted an article stating that a well-respected firm increased its SLP rating and price target. I expect an upbeat conference call.

  • Solving The Mystery Of 10 By 10 - How Does A Dividend Growth Investor Get From Point A To Point B? [View article]
    I enjoy reading thought-provoking contributions. October 24, 2014, I gradually increased my NRO position. It was the highest price I have paid per share (or unit, if you prefer), since the initial buy November 20, 2013. NRO is scheduled to increase its monthly payout 50% November 28, 2014. The new investment will yield at least 7.072% on cash that was earning virtually 0%. The average price per share rose by 7 cents; however, my average yield by using a $6 dividend reinvestment price, (NRO into NRO), for the October 31, 2014 payout, will rise to 7.947%. Instead of the 50% distribution increase, by purchasing new shares, I expect my NRO monthly payment to grow by 68.489%. Left Banker and other investors and contributors know closed-end funds can be overlooked ways of increasing wealth. Mr. Van Knapp's articles are very instructive, for which we should be thankful.
