  • FOMC minutes show member concern over "dots" [View news story]
    The UE rate is so manipulated, it's become nearly meaningless. There are too many other metrics that tell of economic health. The Fed is indeed boxed in for a number of reasons.

  • Ukraine Crisis: A Decision That May Have Sealed The Fate Of The EU [View article]
    Ultimately, it all comes down to resources of one fashion or another. Everything else is just noise. Russia says they will not be denied, no one is going to stop them.

  • You Might Want To Buy AT&T Near The Bottom [View article]
    Waldipup, I did not see your analysis. I don't usually follow T, but looked at it today since it was one of the main articles floating up and down. Any thing I get serious about, I usually run daily, weekly, monthly charts on as well as checking fundamentals.

  • You Might Want To Buy AT&T Near The Bottom [View article]
    I put a price target on "T" of 26.82 based on the weekly chart showing a well-defined H&S pattern.

  • Prospect Capital: This High-Yield Investment Is The Best In BDC, Part One [View article]
    When I plot BDCL & PSEC together on a chart, it is evident that I get less volatility with BDCL, identical performance in price appreciation (minus the volatility), but with BDCL, I get 2% more in yield. By owning BDCL, I substantially reduce the risk of owning a single company. In this article, I don't see the justification of owning PSEC versus the ETF.

  • An 8.5% Yield For Your Retirement Account [View article]
    ABR-A shares closed at 24.13 today (Friday) putting the yield at 8.55%. Pretty close to C-shares yield, however, the point is that A-shares have been out for a while and are still under $25. So capital appreciation doesn't seem to be one of the major attributes of ABR Preferreds. I've owned A-Shares for a while. Conversely, ADK-A shares which I also own (liquidation at $25 also) closed today at $28.25 and even at that premium, they are yielding 9.625%.

    I'm in agreement with the author, that an income portfolio should have a diverse accumulation of income-producing assets. ABR-C is fine as an addition to a portfolio.

    Eating out is convenient, eating at home is healthy.

  • The polar vortex is a perfect storm for railroad stocks, J.P. Morgan says [View news story]
    Considering the entire universe of stocks, tens of thousands of them, investing in the half dozen or so coal stocks is a rather low priority.

  • How 2014 Could Be Like 1929 [View article]
    I've seen the 1929 stock market graph overlaid on market charts several times over the last 20 years. It seems like someone somewhere is always trying to make it fit. Believe what you want.

  • REITs Are Oversold; It Seems To Be A Good Time To Be Greedy While Others Are Fearful [View article]
    Every now and then, an article is published on SA where the comments are more useful than the article itself. Just sayin....

  • I Purchased This Wide-Moat Dividend Stock Last Month [View article]
    Looking at KO on weekly & monthly charts, I would be inclined to hold out for a price of 29.00 to 26.00 - Fib retracements of 50 & 61.8 on the monthly. Of course, I could be wrong in which case I'll buy something else. I'm keeping a casual watch on the stock making money elsewhere while I wait.

  • Why Annaly & mREITs Are No Longer 2014 Safe Havens [View article]
    In addition to interest rate risk which the OP discusses in the context of already being deeply discounted, there is a risk premium that is determined by investors via share price (relative to dividends and relative to gov't bonds). A person's best bet in futuristically determining the risk premium is a dart and a dartboard particularly considering that NLY management's strategy is not static (all one way or all another) as is implied. What has been the strategy is at best a shaky foundation for forecasting what will be; and I give the management of NLY more credit for adjusting to changing economic conditions than I give to someone that calls shots based on one or two days. Long NLY.
