  • My Mad Method: What Next To Buy And Why - February, 2013 [View article]
    Viking: Author pays just $1 per buy/sell, so his turn around cost is negligible. Stocks don't have recurring fund fees, so he saves money by *not* buying a mutual fund.

  • Gold Vs. Coca-Cola [View article]
    @tampat: thank you for your rebuttal.

    @tim: sorry, but you cherry picked time frame and other assumptions to suit your needs. you're better than this. :)

    @all: gold and KO are different asset classes with different purposes in one's portfolio. they are apples and oranges. i want both for different reasons.

    ps: long HL and NEM, and looking to buy KO later this year.

  • Prospect Capital Moves Deeper Into Rental Properties [View article]
    my guess is, the operating managers run the properties, so PSEC isn't dealing with vacancy issues, etc. therefore, neither should we. (long psec)

    also, if these properties were purchased at reduced prices due to the housing crash, then the sale of these properties in the future should bring about some capital gains for further, atypical BDC ventures.

Barron's long-held view is that LINE's accounting is aggressive because the company wants to recognize the financial benefits of the puts but not the costs. (earlier[View news story]
