  • A Diversification Dissertation For Income Investors [View article]

    I am 47 strong,and to those who claim it is impossible to monitor 47,I simply reply,
    "How much time does it take to monitor JnJ,PG,XOM,KO,T?"

    Of the 47, a dozen or so,require full time babysitting.

    I guess Im like Rose in that I implement a top to bottom strongest to weakest list.

    Best Regards,

  • American Realty Capital Properties: 8% Yield Play Gains Traction [View article]
    Since any negative comment is perceived as adding no value to the conversation,let me explain why I bailed........
    ARCP took on a huge task by acquiring Cole,they have yet to digest the magnitude of it all.
    I was all for that acquisition,owning over 1000 shares.
    Slick Nick led everyone to believe ARCP is the next O or NNN,carefully leading everyone down that "we are a steady eddie" line of thinking.
    When I invest, I look for stability and superior management.
    Before you know it he is acquiring DRI ?
    He is turning over 500 stores to a new and innovative restaurant management team,that has promised to make the Red Lobster brand better.
    THEN he golden parachutes,repeat,he golden parachutes.
    How can you believe anything this guy says ?
    Today they announced they are raising prices,changing the target customer to "upper middle class",and a new "more fish" menu.
    Please explain to me,why any of this gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling about ARCP ?
    This is crap games management with your money.
    Anyone know the average life of a restaurant in NYC ?
    You dont even know who is going to replace Slick Nick,yet you all are so sure ARCP is a winner....
    I totally respect Bret and his opinions <regardless of the comments of some of his followers>
    I play craps in Vegas.
    I "invest" in companies with stable management.

    Im all ears on how someone has confidence in ARCP ?

    Bill in San Diego...
