  • LinnCo: 10% Yield And Solid Growth Rate Hard To Resist [View article]
    Goose56- When I read your holdings I saw 8 of the same stocks I hold. Great minds... However, about LNCO, you have ~5x more than I do, but one of my long time newsletters recommends it (Forecasts & Strategies) and his latest issue says Credit Suisse projects $40 and we have a lovely div while waiting. Long KMI, SDRL, TRP, TYG, ERF, and PBR will roar back soon. Ignore Barron's

  • A Conversation With Prospect's Grier Eliasek [View article]
    BDCBuzz seemed so positive on PSEC that I jumped in last month. Of course, now the name has dropped ~14 places on his latest chart. I am still long PSEC, but now have a tight stop which almost executed this morning. I am retired, and now must watch closely when these issues become a gamble, as I can not afford to lose big any more. If it stops me out I will replace it with something much more SWAN. Long NLY, NLYprA, PSEC, MAIN, OHI, PMT, drillers, pipelines, chipmakers etc

  • Angie's List Is Dying For The Same Reason Facebook Is Winning [View article]
    I used a brick repair man from Angie's List here in Dallas. He did the bare minimum, work was acceptable, but he was here 5 hours and wanted $1050. Upcharge is not the word for it!!

  • Prospect Capital: BDC Dividend Coverage Part 18 [View article]

    I got MAIN from Mark Skousen via "Forecasts and Strategies" maybe 2 yrs ago at ~$26. Still in (and still recommended) and I am thrilled. I usually go for more danger, but maybe I should change my ways here in retirement. Wonderful bonus payments twice a year! Long NLY, NLY/PfA, PSP, SDRL, WIN,OHI,PMT, TRP, TYG, more
    Have learned much from you and thanks!
    Want to hop on PSEC but apprehensive now that I missed the $10.30s

  • Annaly Has Bottomed: Multiple Reasons To BUY (Not 'Run For The Hills') [View article]
    Thanks to the article "Run for the hills" last month on SA, I bought 1000 NLY/pfA @24.40; up about $1 now and paying ~8% yield. Only wish I had gotten back into NLY in the 9s while I was at it. Will do so soon anyway...

  • Intel (INTC) might be a double in the next five years, writes Jack Hough in Barron's, as the company racks up market-share gains in tablet and smartphone chips, sees big demand for lucrative server chips, and PC sales stabilize. Then there's the company's capital spending-spree - it should cut manufacturing costs and allow more wins in high-end foundry contracts, including from Apple which has been forced to use Samsung for the work. [View news story]
    Out of 30 long positions on Friday, I had one in the green, albeit only slightly. Yes, good old INTC. Also long since 2000

  • Annaly Capital's Dividend Cut, Falling Interest Rate Margins, Prepayment Risks Are Worrisome [View article]
    At least a year ago, my advisor, a PhD economist with a famous newsletter warned 'sell NLY ! The party is over. I was in @17.94 and out in the 15s. Needless to say I have regretted it ! Now I'm in PMT and hoping for a much better outcome. Even Vector Vest gives it many green lights so we will see.
