  • CEFL Now Yielding 23% - What's Wrong With The Closed-End Funds? [View article]
    I think that the drop in all these high yield investments is an extreme overreaction
    to interest rise fear.

  • The Frankenstein Fund - July 2015 Update Mid Month [View instapost]
    Upon some refection I'm actually worried about he metals indexes like SLVO and GLDI. Both commodities are really in the crapper and could go down even more. May be the riskiest of my list. could Gold go down to a 2008 crash price in the 600's?? Gold pays no dividends and there s not much inflation.

  • State National Companies Announces Second Quarter 2015 Earnings Release & Conference Call Schedule [View article]
    This is a great company. Undiscovered gem. They are a ceding or fronting company using their A rating to lend out to other companies who have a slightly lesser rating that can only write certain business if they have a A rating but fall short. State National is a cash cow and also provide insurance services to over 600 credit unions.

    FBR has a target price of $15.

  • ETN Showdown: Why Now Is The Time To Consider MORL [View article]
    Moving averages for this kind of investment do not apply. It is based on fear and greed of rates.

    Moving averages may be valid for regular growth stocks.

  • BDCL Still Attractive With A 19.2% Yield [View article]
    Too early. You have lost almost a full year of dividends with the drop in price. That is the problem with his vehicle. It is not based on any real rationale, just knee jerk investing by retail investors who sell off in panic when it drops and exacerbating the problem to make it go down further.
    Do not rule out going to the $5 liquidation point in a 2008 panic.

    This sucker could drop to $5 in a market like 2008.The only way BDCL works is for it to stay relevant above $5 for at least 5 years to get your money back.

    I can't imagine what would happen to BDCL and other Closed End Vehicles if we have a sell off like in 2008 with forced liquidation. What would happen to MORL?

    Why are you so sure this will happen soon. The energy glut could through 2018 that some investment banks are estimating. The failure of this article is absolutely spectacular. I feel sorry for the author's losses.

    "will the dividends of the components hold"

    That is the BIG if. Obviously, with the price drop in BDCL not too many people think that the dividends will hold, then the components affected will drop and then BDCL will drop 2X of what the components do. Is it is possible for $15 to be revisited from 2011? Yes it is possible. I have not yet pulled the trigger and have not yet been sucked in to the hype by the self proclaimed "experts"who have been dead wrong on this. If it actually comes close to $15 I might be salivating and cannot resist.

    The all time low is $15 in 2011 for BDCL. The main reason for the current drop is that the quarterly distribution has dropped to 2011 levels and there is also the perception that many BDC's have exposure to energy companies, but that is overblown fear. BDCL could drop toward $15 if the market stays poor. At that point,
    it might be irresistible to buy. Consider some drop in distribution to about $3.60 a share and calculate a 23%-25% return because of fear.

    The timing of the NOW is the time to BUY call on MORL is turning out to be quite incorrect. At what price after more tanking do we pull the trigger?
