  • BAML: Capitulation in emerging markets, commodities, and energy-related stocks [View news story]
    "Pros are bailing out of emerging markets, commodities, and energy-related stocks at a record pace."

    The Pros are probably selling closer to the bottom than the top.

  • Linn Energy: A Closer Look Into The Shocking Distribution Suspension [View article]
    Having been the holder of individual stocks when they announced distribution cuts, I have elected to go with ETFs for income. Then I can focus on the sector rather than the company. Sorry for anyone that has lost money on this, I've been there.

  • Microsoft: The Windows 10 Hardware Argument [View article]
    My desktop has an i7 chip and dual monitors, running Windows 7. It's fast and I don't have any problems. Why would I want to upgrade to Windows 10? (Anyone that knows an answer).

  • Why I Like High-Yield ETFs And ETNs [View article]
    It does make for a nice monthly check. I've owned MORL for several years and have been adding on this recent weakness. It pays the monthly notes on two new vehicles - one SUV and one 4x4 truck so I can't complain.

  • Is HCP The REIT Buy Of The Year? [View article]
    Of recent, the most consistent feature with HCP is its adverse surprises, one after another. If the $750m offering had some positive aspect, I would imagine HCP would want that out front, not after the fact. I maintain low expectations on HCP's future until I see a reason to believe otherwise.

  • 28.34% Advantage To 5 Dow Highest Yield, Lowest Price, May Dogs With Merck [View article]
    I wish I had the patience to read this much detail, but I don't, and am probably missing out on a good thing. I wish there was a way you could summarize something in a few lines and a chart.

  • Why An Income Portfolio Beats Capital Gains Every Time [View article]
    "Success is 80% psychology & 20% Mechanics".

    I'm sure this reflects your analysis of the investing public from what you've been exposed to. To give you credit, I use a few of your points for one part of my holdings and revisit it about once a quarter to make adjustments. That takes care of that.

    On another part, my philosophy is "0% psychology & 100% Mechanics". But, one must have the proper tools.

    There is no "one way, only way" to make money in these markets. I'm sure there are many who appreciate the information you've shared. It likely fits some people's investing objectives. But I personally use several techniques or disciplines if you like that word better.

    Thanks for your insight into this one. You're a good man.

  • Pimco's Total Return fund back on top [View news story]
    From a technical aspect on the daily chart, BOND has made a double top with RSI & MACD non-confirmations. I'd be selling it too.
