  • 6 Monthly Pay Dividend Dogs Flaunt 10% To 49% Late-July Upsides [View article]
    Freddy, your English still leaves a lot to be desired. E.g. "Pacific Coast Oil Trust netted $615.83.... American Realty Capital (NASDAQ:ARCP) netted $255.70....
    LinnCo, LLC netted $221.97...."

    "Netted" is PAST tense, and you are referring to FUTURE speculative gains that have yet to be realized. In the future and for accuracy's sake, I suggest you use something like, "XYZ might net $x, if mean target price is reached."

  • The Story Behind The Marijuana Investment Story No One's Telling [View article]
    Why no mention that:
    "In 2003, the Securities and Exchange Commission sued him for allegedly fraudulent practices toward his clients. As a result, Stansberry was 'ordered to pay $1.5 million in restitution and civil penalties for disseminating false stock information and defrauding public investors through a financial newsletter,' according to The Baltimore Sun." (

    Why no mention that:

    "Despite Stansberry & Associates' history of fraud, shady practices, and transparently ludicrous investment pitches, conservative outlets like Fox Business, WND, and Glenn Beck have welcomed the firm as financial experts in recent months." (

  • 4 Global Dividend Stocks Skipper 23% To 213% May Price Upsides [View article]
    "...these we're not recommendations." I scratch my head in disbelief when you can't
    even quote your own copy accurately: "These were not recommendations."

    "According to corporate law, corporations are people...." I believe you are referring
    to a Supreme Court ruling regarding limits of political campaign contributions. If I am wrong, please state one example that supports your statement.

  • 4 Global Dividend Stocks Skipper 23% To 213% May Price Upsides [View article]
    Your grasp of English still leaves a lot to be desired.

    First, you stated, "Probable profit generating trades were revealed...." Then you stated that various companies "netted" x$. Netted is the past tense of net. Since these numbers are PROJECTED one year gains, the correct/accurate wording should be, "might net x$ if projections were met." When you are talking about what Might happen in the future, Don't use the Past tense. Since you can't seem to be able to do this on your own, why don't you have someone with a firm grasp of English proofread your copy?

    "4 Global Dividend Stocks Skipper...." People skipper, companies don't!

    "So this month the dog strategy for this collection as graded by Wall St. wizards was 50% accurate. Probable profit generating trades...."

    50% accuracy is a flip of the coin and a Long way from "probable."

  • Argex Titanium: A Rare Specialty Chemical 'Category-Killer' [View article]
    "Given the "blow out" earnings improvement by adding Argex technology we believe Argex should be worth $500 mm today (or at least upon plant financing) (or $3.30 per fully diluted share) and $1 around billion with a fully functioning, rollout-ready plant."

    Does "$1 around billion" mean approximately $1 billion?

    Yahoo Finance shows NDRO "Div & Yield 0.39 (3.10%)"
    That's a long way from your figures of $.85 (6.87%)

    Why the discrepancy?

  • Constructing A High Income, Lower Risk CEF Portfolio [View article]
    There seem to be some discrepancies:

    "MFS Intermediate Income (MIN). The fund ... has a distribution of 9.1%."
    Yahoo Finance shows: Div & Yield: 0.21 (3.20%)

    "Pimco High Income This fund ... has a high distribution rate of 11.6%"
    Yahoo shows: Div & Yield: 1.06 (7.70%)

    "ING Global Equity Dividend and Premium Opportunities This fund ... has a distribution of 10%."
    Yahoo: Div & Yield: 0.29 (3.30%)

    I stopped checking after those three. Accuracy?

  • 5 Global Dogs Navigate 40% To 179% March Upsides [View article]
    whit777: "In summary, friends, Re-read until you can grasp the grammar, and research the countries yourself." No amount of re-reading will straighten garbled verbiage.

    The article's title should read: Five Global Dogs' Price Targets of 40% To 179%.

    Navigate: to find the way to get to a place when you are traveling in a ship, airplane, car, etc.
    : to sail on, over, or through an area of water
    : to travel on, over, or through (an area or place)

    Companies don't navigate!

    Anyone can cull price targets. Without even a Little more serious info to go on, articles like this could be condensed to a list of companies and their
    price targets without Any verbiage.
