  • Cliffs Natural Resources: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly [View article]
    May be a good time to switch to MSB. All domestic shipments on the Great Lakes. Winter shipping slowed and large amount of restocking needed by the Mills - some had to shut down. Large immediate demand to restock ore and build up larger inventory if another cold winter comes to avoid shut downs. Tonnage and price should do better than if dependent on foreign demand. The royalty trust shares are trading above both the 20-day and 200-day MAs. Share price seems to have stabilized and can rebound within 5-years to more than double and pay out a 7%+ yield on the way. $MSB $CLF $GNI

  • Bank Of America: Don't Be Fooled By Dead Cat Bounce [View article]
    Nice get the clicks article. But no great advice on how to start a position. Regardless of earnings, you don't have any real idea of what to expect. After earnings may be less risky. With the recent decline from the highs set earlier, the shorts would cover in decreasing their risk before earnings. But for a new investor establishing a position, its an excellent opportunity. The risk of not getting the low can be offset by establishing an acquisition strategy. For a small investor, buying some now and wait to buy more after the report may work well. That way regardless of price and profit - you are guaranteed of not being wrong unless the price remains exactly the same and kicking yourself that you could have saved a brokerage commission for not buying it all at once, LOL.

  • Cliffs Looks Like An Attractive Long-Term Investment [View article]
    Another way to play it is MSB. They just announced no distribution for the recent Winter quarter that is seasonal and hit with abnormally cold weather. Depleted stocks have closed some mills. There should be a sharp rebound in demand and price. The shipping capacity is limited but will go full blast. $CLF $MSB $GNI

  • Bank Of America: The Past And The Future [View article]
    Nothing new to spur the stock. They need to be more aggressive on the buybacks. The dividend news was as expected or slightly less - this makes it not a dividend stock for income investors. So who new is buying it?

  • Bank Of America: Rising Rates A Net Positive? [View article]
    Margin on real estate loans is certainly increasing. Josh is hitting on the real reason to see this company's profits will increase. Housing is very strong and BAC's acquisition of Countrywide as much as they are deemphasizing their contribution will start to provide superior results. Rate increases have home buyers panicking to lock in deals. The Fed and LT rates on mortgage securities are still very low. I'm looking at the up-tic on the mortgage REITs - they may have hit bottom - need to see the end of the their payout declines. Overall economic growth will be the cream on top of this fabulous market recovery that could be a record breaker as far as being the longest in history. BAC should continue to be a superior participant for investors.

  • Bank Of America On The Front Of This Adoption Curve [View article]
    All we need then is any kind of announcement that they buyout something like bitcoin and the stock would double overnight! Notice I don't say which stock would do the doubling, LOL.

  • Bank Of America: 70% Upside Over The Medium Term [View article]
    Big item to consider is the appreciation of the value that is on the book, especially real estate. Home prices in Charlotte, NC are up 9.9% from the same month (Feb) last year. I don't see any for sale signs in my neighborhood. Foreclosed homes are selling for more than the mortgage liabilities to be recovered.

  • Bank Of America: How Big Can The Dividend Get? [View article]
    Good analysis on the dividend potential. I hope more emphasis should be made on the stock buy backs. Additional litigation can require more set asides on the balance sheet to allow more income to go untaxed. This pot of money should be used to buy back more stock to resell after it goes up to at least book value. I'm ready to stand up at the stockholder's meeting to demand this.

  • Bank Of America: Legal Ignorance Is Bliss [View article]
    The set asides are a mirage. When the fog goes away the taxes will come due. Still, there will be plenty of profits to shaore with stockholders and allow more stock buybacks.

  • Bank Of America: Not All Assets Are Created Equal [View article]
    On the books a corresponding liability exists. In actuality, the cash is still there. This should be used to buy back the stock and when it goes up to a double from the current level, sell back the stock into the market.

  • Bank Of America: Why Buybacks Are Better Than Dividends [View article]
    Its very plain and simple to see the stock buybacks are the thing to do. Obviously the management believes the stock is undervalued. Everyone needs to follow the buy low logic. They should have bought back all the stock at $5. Warren Buffet was there to do so - at a slightly higher price. Another thing to do is to set more cash aside on the balance sheet and use it to buy back stock. A good accountant can itemize it as a litigation expense. Cash is cash and its in the "bank" - all in the same pot. Then they can borrow more from the Fed at zero interest. That can be used to buy back more stock. There is no reason for the stock to continue to trade below book value. Regulators are trying to take away any smoke and mirrors - but in the sort run before they even examine the books, a major portion of the float can be taken off the market and then say "oopse your right" and sell it all back at double the price.

    The number of shares used for compensation is minor compared to the amount being purchased.

    GNI - The sharp drop has taken its toll but some continue to hold when they finally realize it will be worthless alternatives will be sought. $MSB is a good bet and $CLF.
