  • Macquarie buys the dip in Hercules Technology Growth Capital [View news story]
    I've thought that same thing, but this past three months has shaken me somewhat. Glad for this bit of hopeful news.

  • Should You Take A Shot With First Street Finance? [View article]
    Is NYBC a BDC? If so it has been a great stock for me. Also long Main. BTW--William Hojnacki, that was a pretty funny comment. However, am not sure a fifth would take away the pain I am feeling here. As usual, the comments are better than the article. Good comment about where is the author? Why doesn't he respond? The comment that this stock is NOT for DGI people is too true.

  • Reynolds-Lorillard merger expected to clear as soon as next week [View news story]
    Try as mightily as I have in the past to get family and friends to quit, I have failed. I am now happily long PM, RAI AND MO. I see young people begin lighting up all over the world. I even note that young kids who never smoked turn to real cigarettes when vapor doesn't seem to do the trick for them. Perfect storm?

  • Should You Take A Shot With First Street Finance? [View article]
    I am so glad that someone else is confused about the repeating of First Street...I have suffered for having bought high (10) but guess I will sit tight and collect the 10%. Does anyone have an exit strategy or timing for FSC??

  • Faster, Longer, And Still Fatty: McDonald's New Menu [View article]
    Check to see if you are gluten sensitive. It MIGHT be the bread. Just saying.

    If they really switched to vegetable oils, it was probably the worst move ever, at least unhealthiest. A whole new level of researchers and doctors is discovering the health benefits of saturated fats over the hydrogenated polyunsaturated ones. Tastier too.

  • Faster, Longer, And Still Fatty: McDonald's New Menu [View article]
    I would be terrified eating in a China located MCD. Much better comfort zone here in the Philippines where they offer a pulled pork sandwich as well as a new item: MacRib sandwich. Clean stores quick service. Cannot comment on the line situation, but that is a real put-off as described by rubygreta.

  • 12% Dividend Annaly Capital Is Changing Its Strategy In Anticipation Of Higher Interest Rates [View article]
    HanYOLO, you have just described me, and I truly resemble that remark. I can only say in my favor that I don't think I will repeat this error.

    Hey, all I want to know is: is the dividend safe?

    David White: "This dividend is in some danger." How much danger and for how long? Is a reasonable cut of the div in sight? And if there's a cut, what happens to the price. You say this a weak hold. Seems to me it is a sell, except for that dividend.

  • McDonald's: One McTurnaround, Please [View article]
    JJ1937, the mindless rejection makes me sick too. My limited experience, as I am in the Philippines, is that the MCDs here are uniformly clean, fast and with cheerful staff. Do MCDs in other parts of the world offer pulled pork sandwiches? And when not here, but in Spain, the same observation holds true. Long MCD, and will buy more on further dips or corrections in the market.

  • McDonald's: May The 4th Be With You [View article]
    I have seen three new MCD stores erected recently here in the Philippines. I bought in at 94 expecting the price to go down to where I could add more. Doesn't seem to be happening. Long MCD with what I've got. BTW--thanks for a good article. And for confessing to actually eating there!!! LOL.

    Your careful answer is much appreciated. My entry point was at 32. So I can hold my breath while holding the shares. I think. Thanks.
