  • IBM: A Ship That Is Taking On Water [View article]
    Transcripts: My thoughts exactly on this article.
    Seems to be only a "IBM revenue is down so lets right a negative article"
    Very little research and confirmation of facts done on this one.

    I can appreciate a well written bear case for IBM... but stress on the words well written.

  • American Realty Capital Properties: Not Likely To Be A REIT Buyout [View article]
    fincyn: yeah its amusing seeing all the people comment of how easy it is to run a multi-billion dollar company. All you have to do is collect rent. Yeah I am sure its that easy. Where did they get the properties in the first place? Oh yeah they had to analyze and research and buy them. Its like investors saying its easy for Warren Buffett to make money with all those billions. Gee how did he get in the position of having billions in the first place.

  • The World's Largest Net Lease REIT Is Ripe For A Takeover [View article]
    " Without trusted financials and an experienced leadership team, I see ARCP as a vessel with no captain, barometer, or anchor- just drifting along, hoping to find a suitable harbor."

    Straight to the point and accurate. I am tired of reading the ARCP comments and articles saying its only 2 AFFO numbers from 2 quarters and nothing to worry about. We have no way of knowing the extent of the changes coming. Now if one wants to stay long or buy here on the hope that all that is one thing but that is far different then telling others they are wrong that it COULD be more.

    As for O buying out AGNC... I don't see it. ARCP want to grow for growths sake to get those sweet management fees buying property 2 or 3 times amongst the private reits and their buyouts. O is focused on quality. At best they would cherry pick the best ones but not the entire portfolio.

  • Ditching The 401(k) [View article]
    AT: Thats not how matching works in an 401k I have ever participated in or heard of.
    Its not 3% of the contribution its up to 3% of your full paycheck. It may be partial matching and not 100% but the key is "matching".

    If an employee in your example contributes $2,500.
    The company matches $750 of it (3% of the full paycheck).
    It is not a 3% of the contribution.

    The best option for most people in this scenario is to put in $750 of your own money, the employer puts in $750. And then they put the remainder of their money into an IRA.

    grjr32: So a person takes a loan on pretaxed money and has to pay it back with after tax money?
    I'm not seeing the benefit of moving it into a roth ira at all. There has to be some rule or stipulation here on the loan I doubt you can roll it over forever and have to pay it off at some point.

  • Prospect Capital's Apologetics - A Webinar Review [View article]
    You see the entire market being too dependent on cheap money that rates won't go up in the future... possibly ever.

    That whole section really has nothing to do with reviewing PSEC's management concall.
    Central banks impact and change markets? Absolutely. As with your article, your comment of what you think I mean goes to outrageous extremes.
    But central banks making it so there is no market anymore?

    THANK YOU Flash.
    I cannot fathom how anyone talks down a guaranteed 20% yearly return (author's vestment schedule) even when accounting for mutual fund fees.
    And if a person loses their job? They still get their money, now they can roll it over into an IRA under their control. No loss.

    And why cant a person do both! Just put in enough for matching and then the rest of the investment money per paycheck in their own accounts.
    IRA and 401k contributions are independent of each other so you can do both.

    Cammam310: Please tell us it was a roth 401k cause otherwise I would think there would be all sorts of problems of taking pretax money and putting into a post tax protected account.

    I don't know Mark I think tons of people pulling in $25,000 a year are lining up to be contributing 8% of their pay into a 401k. At that wealth they no longer have needs and concerns of the middle class.

    You classify yourself as an investor in how you are planning for your own retirement which presumably will take decades of dedication and planning. Yet go in detail to explain why waiting 5 years to double your money is too long and not worth it.
    Really hard to take you seriously here.

  • American Realty -7% as accounting fallout continues [View news story]
    You longs are cracking me up. The company confirmed they own what they thought they owned and you think this is a good thing?
    If they themselves are questioning that then we as investors have no way of knowing anything.
    You want to own an asset like that fine that is your right but don't tell the rest of us what a safe solid investment this is and how this is good news. Its not good news its just less terrible. It might turn out that everything is fine but you cannot know that right now.

    altflor if they need an additional 65 days than it is not simply just a few numbers to update. That is a major reworking.
