  • Rising Worries For American Capital Agency [View article]
    Marsha: This might have been a prescient observation in May when AGNC was @ $33 or even in October @ $24. But now that it's lost over 40% of its value, your sell recommendation seems as though you're a little late to the party.

  • Our Retirement Income Portfolio And Its 3rd Quarter Review [View article]

    Just started reading Bob's column this morning and the comments sections so this may have been answered further down in the comments.

    When you go from a 3% yield to a 2% yield, you are reducing your yield by 1/3 not 1/2; 2% is 2/3's of 3%. In addition, your commented:

    "In other words add the 50% one is not getting, with a 2% yield, and require the 5 yr CAGR the company is providing to be 18%"

    Chowder's original rule stated the current yield plus the 5 yr CAGR should be 12%. Your 2% yielding stock would then require a 33% increase of the Chowder rule or 15.96% (12% X 1.33), not 50%.

    BDC Buzz:

    Thanks for the informative article and anaylysis of ACAS.

    So if one were to sell their shares of ACAS, where amongst the remaining BDC's, if any, would you recommend deployment of the proceeds?
