  • American Realty Capital Properties: Yield + Potential For Capital Appreciation = Strong Buy? [View article]
    You would clearly expect to find the annual report and maybe even the dividend history on the home page.. If those are good then the price will go up and the yield will go down.. I noticed the $10 puts sell for $1.30 and the $12.50 sell for $2 so unless they stumble you can make realy good lowball offers for this in the future.

  • I Was Wrong About magicJack [View article]
    I saw that the price went up so that encouraged me to get 5 years.. I would not that t-mobile has had bobsled but with bobsled you can only make outbound calls. Majic Jack and Vonage have their nich and it could be expensive to short them... What sort of interest are you paying me to hold the stock??

  • McDonald's: What To Do About A Stagnating Long Position [View article]
    I think it is down on dishonesty in china and bad menu items. The option of reducing it as a percentage of your account (by growing your other positions) and take the dividends is a good one if you are uneasy with it. I bought like you did but I kept it at 1% of my account so I bought at $50, $72, $92 (a couple of days ago). I don't think it is the best stock in the market by any means cb is likely to do much better price wise over time.

  • We Believe McDonald's Should Be Priced Between $72-$84 [View article]
    I would suspect the reit idea will be back on the table again, I may buy a few shares at this price but I don't really think it is exciting until it goes below $90.

  • KKR: Solid Value, Great Yield [View article]
    I was thinking that if the stock market tanked then the price goes down (Since selling companies and shares of companies is the business). I would figure that is why you get the higher yield because of the risk. I had bought at $13 and figure since I have taken a crap load of money out (with the disto's) I will just hold the shares and buy more on bad stock market news.

  • So It Turned Out 80% In Precious Metals Was A Bad Idea [View article]
    It is odd that you can have digital currency but that there isn't one based on gold where you can borrow, lend exc (as far as I know)

  • Don't Layer Currency Risk On Top Of Equity Exposure [View article]
    falling interest rates in a country can make a stock go up and the profit go up, the currency would subtract from that but you can still do well.

  • How Will Coca-Cola's Mexico Launch Impact The Stock? [View article]
    The tax is also a way to manipulate the stock price... There has been a lot of touting the Mexican economy on the American side of the border and athough mexico is doing alright it is very leveraged to the American economy and oil prices and depends on a more conservative approach for the long term. The reality is that after a period of time things may move to the left or they will be unable to do reforms so I am hopeing they remember to diversify into other countries as well. I am long KO and Pepsi

  • How To Survive A Secular Stagnation [View article]
    Clearly Venezuela is begging right now from the east (china), It realty doesn't matter where oil prices are they are doomed along with many other oil exporters. Russia is not one of them though (most likely) and having an unstable Saudi Arabia doesn't mean you are getting a democracy you will more likely get chaos and extremism along with suffering and a lot of dead people. It is however possible to reduce oil demand and you will see a lot of it go away because of mileage and compition with nat gas, electric, fuel cells, ethonal exc.

  • Prospect Capital: How Secure Is The 12% Dividend Yield? [View article]
    a lot of the leverage is fixed rate debt that is lent out at variable rates. I am not sure what the breakdown is but I would think the coverage would be better with higher rates... I am glad I sold some at $11 with a call (unfortunately had to deliver the shares) I am trading around my position at this point if it goes down again.

  • U.S. Geothermal Inc. - The Company Is Still Fairly Valued [View article]
    The yield on ukw.l is quite good. To bad about all that uncertainty about the currency and Scotland voting for independence. Geo-thermal can loose a lot of money quickly and so that is why it is valued lower.

  • 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.
