  • This Week's Sizemore Insights: Should You Fear The MLP Correction? [View article]
    I tell my buddies, who are reluctant investors, that MLPs are like those who sold to the Alaska Gold Rush miners who bought from them a lot of equipment and tools with which to mine "the gold in them there hills". And guess what, MLPS are like those gold mining tools sellers; they make all the money, because those tool sellers did not concern themselves about the price of gold, nor do MLPs, since they all made/make money on the tools or the pipelines that transport/mine "the goods" and the price of those goods is less important than the volume passing through. Arguably, lower oil, gas prices should increase demand for the goods and thus more goods will pass through the pipelines! Richard

  • Stocks plunge to eight-week lows on global growth worries [View news story]
    This is irrational in light of the great news about jobs, unemployment figures and other good news. Why are stockholders so psychologically challenged about the world markets? All the companies that were up a couple months ago are still good companies and are selling their wares. Why are they so down en masse?Herd mentality - October futz! Time for us smart guys to buybuybuy!!!

  • An Overdue Major Stock-Market Selloff Is Looming [View article]
    Do the markets move in tandem - like a swarm of birds or bees, or do individual stock move according to their fundamentals? And what is "sentiment"? Herd thinking? I say "NO"! Investors for the long term should evaluate each position on it own merits----- not try to decide whether a particular stock is going to go along with the "herd"! It is foolish to buy into the idea that the stock market is a huge pool of assets that generally move together all the time. Rather, individual stocks should move on their own pushed or pulled by the inherent value creation or diminishment. He only thing "sentiment" does is reflect the herd mentality, not the intrinsic value of any given stock. Richard

  • Attunity's Maestro Promises To Make Sweet Music (And Money) [View article]
    Great article and comments. BTW: I bought, over time, 7100 shares of HIMX, accumulating since January of 2013. When the stock started down, I did what my Dad always said to do: Sell when you have made a good profit even if you leave a little on the table. I banked $73,000 above my investment over time, of $15,000, for a total of $88,000! I till want to get back in. Any advice?

    I am now accumulating ATTU, ONNN, GSAT, etc. I am a happy camper and Summer is coming! Dick

  • Himax: Oversold And Undervalued [View article]
    These news blips are just that - one must be patient and evaluative in looking at the stock, not just the hype. Go for the long. Stop listening to the "pundits" especially on TV -- they are just trying to sell "stuff" during the commercial breaks while they conjure "breaking news" during the "regular programming"; this kind of regime prevails in other current volatile stocks like King (Candy Crush), etc. Just BE PATIENT.

  • Annaly leads more declines in mREITs [View news story]
    I agree with your approach - I have most of the stocks mentioned. Why not buy now. I invested in these quite some time ago and am still positive - so I think I should buy more when the prices have gotten near the bottom! I hope you agree. RPB

  • Icahn comments hit averages [View news story]
    The power to move markets is frightening. It should be reigned in. Otherwise it is just manipulation. Shame on ICON for playing games with more modest investors!

  • MLPs And Interest Rates, How Right Is Mr. Gundlach? [View article]
    I think one has to develop an informed "instinct" by reading everything you can and good authors like Phillip and distill it all every day in one's subconscious and then buy when your sub-c gives you the impulse. I have done very well using this philosophy. Maybe I am just lucky, but I am out-pacing my friends and colleagues, and have ever since the Great Recession started.

  • Ned Davis Research finds MLPs in a familiar bind: They look rich by historical standards but not relative to income investing alternatives. Judging MLPs just by distributable cash flow, their 6.85% average DCF yield is well below their long-term 9.2% median, which would make MLPs “dramatically overvalued."

    I mostly agree with the comments. Also, one must look at "Total Return" when evaluating a position. Dividend PLUS growth must be considered. Then you get total return which is what you should be following.

  • It's Almost May, So Go Away [View article]
    IF all stockholders sell in May won't that herd mentality become a self-fulfilling prophecy?!? I say, let's see what happens, don't sell, and when and if the market bottoms, buy more of the stocks you already own - as in "buy low, sell high" to quote, among others, Mr. Warren Buffett!!
