If you snd me an email, I'll send you a photo of the outside.

  • Lessons I Learned From Owning MNKD [View article]
    I penned a note in my financial calendar a few weeks ago: "Personal Commitment to Self: Hold Mannkind at least through the end of 2017". I live a few miles from Mannkind's Valencia CA headquarters and have attended shareholder meetings. After reading everything - pro & con - over the last few years, I feel in my gut that this COULD be a breakthrough technology. I haven't bet the farm on this but a four or five bagger could amount to a nice piece of change. Better lucky than Good!

  • Another Keeper Stock: Constructing The Fill-The-Gap Retirement Portfolio For Every Life Phase And Any Market Environment [View article]
    Take a look at software "Investment Account Manager" by Quant IX. It was the top pick of AAII. I moved to it from spreadsheets in Jan 2014. It slices and dices so many ways and has dramatically reduced the time it takes me each week to keep the info correct.

  • Analysts Weigh In On MannKind Following Q4 Results [View article]
    Similarly, on February 25th, JMP Securities analyst Jason Butler maintained a Market Perform rating on MannKind, saying it's "too early to assess" Afrezza, which was developed in partnership with Sanofi.

    Developed in partnership with Sanofi? I do not think this is factually correct.

  • Big Oil - Big Dividends? [View article]
    Withholding taxes on dividends: Italy 27%, Norway 25%, France 25%, UK 0%.

    No problem in taxable account as you will get a US tax credit for foreign tax withheld.

    In a non-taxable account - you're out of luck. You get no US credit for foreign tax withheld.

    BP looks pretty good in this regard.

  • Buffett Backs Bank Of America [View article]
    I've been in BAC since Feb 2009 and plan on staying onboard for the foreseeable future. It is distressing, however, that the Justice Dept. views BAC as its personal ATM. When does the punishment stop?
