  • Prospect Capital: Q4 2015 Update - 4 Critical Issues [View article]
    real estate has been crushed (this is my opinion of the spinnoff not that I dont like real estate), maybe they should sell shares of the internet loans and buy back shares... that is what I believe would be the best thing for shareholders..

  • Emera - A Canadian Energy Company That Is Actually Up In 2015 [View article]
    They also own a large chunk of aqn so when the canadian dollar goes down I suspect it looks alot better in canadian dollars. I own both and hopefully a changing attitude towards wind energy in the united states doesn't cause them trouble.

  • The Curious Case Of Canada [View article]
    I have an investment in sii, emara exc... I am hearing from some of the internet people that there are two things going on. The laws were changed to make it harder to raise money for new companies and that (although there may be alot of mineral companies that don't do anything) and I am hearing about the housing bubble all the time. I think it is a good idea for americans to have at least some canadian assets for safty reasons, if the harassment gets real bad down here there is another english speaking nation up north and it seemed like a way to save some money if housing prices went down in canada and living expenses became really inexpensive. I suspect it's a good idea to have some gold and silver for the same reason in case the dollar goes down hill or there is some kind of trade collapse.

  • Renewable Energy Group: Q2 Brings Short-Term Pain With Long-Term Growth Potential [View article]
    They have alot of good next generation stuff that could come to market if there was a real focus on flooding the market with cheap fuel. renewable diesels and renewable methanol could be a real game changer over time.

  • Berkshire Hathaway nears $30B deal for Precision Castparts [View news story]
    easy money for the longs and for arbitrage... a berkshire merger is a slam dunk in the options market. If it is all cash it may well be worth buying after the news.

  • 6 Reasons To Short Silver, 3 Ways To Short And 2 Reasons Gold Is Better [View article]
    It doesn't look like silver got that much cheaper (1 oz rounds) even with a lower silver price.. I can't tell if there is a shortage of blanks or not.

  • Both Crestwood Companies' Dividends Are Not Sustainable [View article]
    Pretty much everything in pipelines is bad because with lower volumes you get lower prices... I found the salt buisness intresting. I would think maybe the bonds on some of these pipelines could be intresting.

  • Prospect Capital: Reconciling Different Points Of View [View article]
    I was looking at closed in funds and found some that were somewhat similar traded at 8% discount to nav. I am sure they sold at nav though.

  • China's Gold Reserves: A Strong Dose Of Reality [View article]
    I could see deflation in china... declining population therefore less jobs are needed, real estate prices collapse, maybe a desire to keep fuel prices down exc.. at some point they do not need as many jobs and they want their people to have more stuff... I see a possibility of a strong currency vs the us regardless of whether it is backed by gold or not. To me south asia looks more interesting.

  • Obtain 10% Dividend Yield From DirectCash Payments [View article]
    sometimes you need cash for quickness, that said that is the only reason to carry cash. You can get cash by going to your bank or writing a check for over here in the u.s. so paying a fee to use an atm machine is something I do not understand.

  • The Young Investor's Next Steps: Coming Full Circle [View article]
    I would think I would hold some cash for the rights issues of psec... That said wp carey is another name that is good in real estate. psec itself looks really interesting this far under book value.

  • How Much Can YieldCo Dividends Grow? [View article]
    Northland is somewhat a yieldco except it doesn't pay a huge fee to anyone and is borrowing money to build new projects. There is some risk to this one in the European contracts but it will raise the dividend before there are any problems with the contract.

  • Prospect Capital Management And The Brilliant Spin-Off [View article]
    I don't think I would except an explanation of it until it is spelled out to me.. It could be above/below nav exc... rights offering means that you have the right to buy shares and most likely is to the advantage of the person who buys more. Maybe you can sell your rights for cash also.

  • National Bank Of Greece, Lights Out? [View article]
    It is called paying with cash.... IT is not all that unusual that is just an assumption that you have posted that some people have to do (60% of homes are bought w/debt)
