    the writer talks about history, yet overlooks the main reason bond yields are so low, it is because the FED rate is so low......spin how you want, it is not a recession signal as the writer wants you to think............

    okay stupid question I have in trying to understand preferred stocks, I know common stock you can re0nvest the dividend into more shares, can you do the same with preferred? of you just get the cash each payout and you have to wait until it builds to a decent amount to invest

    David thanks will put it on my radar, I see the PSB/PV is 5.70% paying same dividend and sell for 11 cents cheaper a share, with call 3/2018, it is in a decent range so chances of getting called is low I think

    Flip any recommendations on a decent preferred to buy? most I see right now trading over their issue price , from what I under stand preferred's have gone up as rates were going down this year, and we seem at the bottom of low interest rates. So wondering if you have anything on your radar below issue price worth looking at

  • Second Apple Sapphire Plant Operations Emerges From GT Advanced Technologies' Amended 10-Q [View article]
    I thought I read a release from GTAT that Salem was a temp thing as they had other plans for the plant there...it was only while Mesa got up and running.....which leads me to believe the Salem furnace are being pulled from Salem and the last once to be installed in Mesa......

    payment 4 of 139 mill was reportly due end of April, the 1Q report as May 8th, in that report is only address one payment during 1Q and another payment made right after the 1Q closed , according to 10Q report Apple was to make 4 payments 225 15 days after the agreement was executed, 111 mil Dec 30, 103 mill feb 28 and 4th and final of 139, the 10-Q I saw has the date redacted only showing 2014, there is an un redacted copy on file with the SEC and all reports have been the 4th payment was due end of April. so GTAT had time to include payment 4 if it was made as part of the May 8th release... also GTAT had been making sapphire in Salem MA for some time for Apple from reports I have read. I know someone above talk about 70 layoffs in New England, from what I have read it was in Salem and that plant was to focus on other part of the business when Mesa was up and running. also remember the sole purpose of the advance by Apple was to get Mesa up and running quickly as possible as the June 10-Q which was an amendment of prior statement by GTAT clearly stated time was of essences.......again UBS talks about short term issues, the other analyst I did not read his detailed report so don't know what they based their downgrade on... Long-term I see GTAT doing will 2014 is a transition year for them... 2015 even from GTAT own statements is when one can expect growth...........
