  • I'm Recommending A Riskier REIT [View article]
    BX is not a REIT; its an LLP and generates a K-1 for tax reporting. The rules are completely different compared to a REIT.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: European Shares Rise On Greek Hopes [View article]
    Unions are just another business that provides services. They will do what they can to show that their services add value to those subscribed to them and at the same time, they will look to expand their customer base. IMO, that is what drives their involvement in politics too.

    Its a little more complicated than the 122 cases. People in South Korea are staying off the street and that does have an impact on the economy. Fear trumps reality once again.

    Maybe there is a chance for that problem to be solved by the time you're in your sixties. Thats another 35 years away and research is being done.

  • Avago confirms Broadcom purchase [View news story]
    I read that the same way. Its cash or .4378 of a share in the combined company. You won't receive both. Also, there is this: "The shareholder election will be subject to a proration mechanism, which is anticipated to result in payment in the aggregate in the range of 50% cash and 50% equity in the transaction"

    You can elect cash or shares or some split, but in the end what you will receive will depend on the other BDCM shareholders.
    I hope that headline will be corrected. Some people may be buying BDCM based on what they read here. I suspected the "and" was wrong as that would be a huge discount that would make buying BDCM an easy decision.

    The impact is likely to be minimal. Only 215,000 bbls per day are impacted and it looks to be temporary:

    That is the reason BDCs have been excluded from the S&P and Russell indices; i.e., they are too complex to analyze. At least that is the reason given by those folks: http://bit.ly/1JLvOhx

    Or unless you allow the rights to expire worthless. We will need to take some care with these.

    PSEC is no longer under $8.

    PSEC should sell at a discount to book imo (for the many reasons already stated). What should the discount be though? Should it be 10%, 15% or 20%+ as the market is pricing the shares currently?

  • 9%+ Dividend Payer Linn Energy/LinnCo Missed By -$0.83, Or Did It? [View article]
    He got his info from Yahoo Finance. I have warned people about those sites (yes Google too has errors).

    My own brokerage still shows OHI's dividend as quarterly; although it went monthly beginning in April. There is so much bad information around that sometimes I wonder if its intentional.

    I did notice last year that KO has a product for sale in Argentina called Coca Cola Life (that is the actual name on the label) that uses stevia combined with sugar (cane sugar only) to sweeten the drink. Its only in Chile and Argentina: http://bit.ly/1dkcr4N
