  • Margin Debt Peaks May Indicate End Of Cyclical Bull Market [View article]
    I think the tek allows you to easily use margin debt to buy real estate, I calculated I could buy a 21,000 condo for about $20 a month or somesuch (going from memory). It is possible that a lot of the margin debt is for cars and real estate instead of the stock market. It may be possible that some of that is backed by bond ladders or what not, I am not sure if that changes the chart or not just that it may not have been so easy to use margin debt for other purposes in the past..

  • Here's The Alarming Table Kinder Morgan Doesn't Want You To See [View article]
    I am afraid of all the mlp's and sold out of this one and was burned on boardwalk.. Interest rates are a killer if and when they go up, nothing against mr Kinder at all if he can make a ton of money doing something that is necessary it is hard to argue with it, but I am still afraid of this one and I hope he buys my last pipeline.

  • KiOR's Epitaph [View article]
    If there is any logic to the company at all then it will be worth something to someone, The investors failed and weather the tek did or not is a different story.

  • More Signs A Market Bottom Is Forming [View article]
    I suspect there is going to be some selling because two hurricanes are going towards Hawaii. I don't try to time the market like that but I would suspect that waiting until Monday if I was trying to would be worthwhile.

  • Don't Buy This Dip: The Fed Is Not Your Friend [View article]
    As I look at investing in other countries it is odd how many do not realy have currencies and use ours... panama, Uruguay (for land), theres a currency union in the Caribbean exc.. How many of these U.S. dollars are here and used for our goods is questionable, some of these dollars are for the expansion of the monetary base overseas.

  • Q2 Earnings Down 4%, At 56x P/E Sirius XM Is A Short [View article]
    Realy if the stock is over valued they should buy something and not do a stock buyback.. Any sort of content including stations exc would spread their programming costs out a little bit, i.e. if they went into another country and bought a station or whatever. Buying a Network could be usefull also. I had bought at $30 and I don't intend to prove it all and I have staid away from this thing ever since but at some point it could be my sort of stock.

  • Does It Still Pay To Hold Municipal Bonds? [View article]
    I am sorta interested but I find the amounts a little staggering (10k - 25k) and I don't care for bond funds or bond etf's that much since I am a control freak... I am planning to go into 5 year treasuries to start my ladder and make the amounts higher.

  • Solazyme's (SZYM) CEO Jonathan Wolfson on Q2 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I am not sure why you think they have much to do with alt energy. Looks like they are replacing palm oil in a lot of products. There seems to be some question as to what impact this company has on the sugar markets, This company and possibly the increase in bio-diesel could have an impact (Depends on if they are using methonal or ethonal in bio-diesel).. Since methonal production moved to the united states because it is cheaper with nat gas and because brazil already has to import ethonal there is some question as to where all this extra sugar is going to come from.

    nat gas storage in general has been bad, I think they are thinking that it will all turn around some day and hopefully they get something until then..

  • KKR's (KKR) Q2 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    you can do a covered call and get something else.. You would get some of that money you think you should have had.. As a prior kkr shareholder I am not sure I personally would have bought kfn but I will have to trust management on that.

  • KKR's (KKR) Q2 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I was going to buy it as $12 forever but the market decided otherwise.. I just hold it collecting the dividends. Remember the dividend will vary so if you want some stability you will add in other stuff.. I was looking at the first data stuff and I was wondering who came up with the 1.2 and the 1.8 billion... (because we have lie detector tests and refineries and those numbers could come from somewhere else)

  • Pure Multi-Family REIT And Agellan Commercial REIT: 8% Yields With Plenty Of Upside [View article]
    The 15% tax could bite a little but they seems like interesting picks, for some people it is 6.5% that they would have to match in the U.S. to get that yield.. I bought a bunch of the Canadian reits because of those dividends they have

    there are a lot of Canadian riets that pay monthly. npr has been increasing it's dividend for the last 20 years.. There is some currency risk to this but it helps to diversify stuff.

  • I Have No Fear Of A Market Crash Or A Significant Correction, Here's Why: Part 1 [View article]
    really who wants to pay all those cap gains from long term holdings.. When I do have fear I accumulate cash though so maybe it is time to do a little of that while we wait on the energy market. I suspect oil has less effect than it did in 08 though with all that new tek out now.

  • TerraForm Power And NRG Yield: Energy Yieldco Customer Dynamics [View article]
    electric cars are also a threat to regulating power plants, combine that with some tek to use solar energy batteries and regulator plants start to disappear. This is something one of our government agencies has been talking about in the past. I don't know why a micro grid would want to be completely separate but it may want to island if the main grid is down... reliability would suggest there are interconnections and money would change hands.
