  • Market Rally Saturation Nearing; Warning By Leveraged Long ETFs [View article]
    Peter thanks for your work.

    I don't understand this sentence, could you (or anyone else) perhaps rephrase it?

    "Virtually all of these ETFs are being viewed by their volume market-makers (MMs) as offering far less upside price change opportunity now than the actually experienced price drawdowns that have previously been experienced following prior MM forecasts like today's."

  • Get The Beta Right [View article]
    Roger thanks for the article. From your suggestions I take it that you do not subscribe to the idea that high yield and bank loans have "equity-like" risks profiles due to default risks increasing if the economy sours?

    Its impossible to know what the exact price of the stock would be if it had hoarded cash. We just know it would be higher.

    You don't see it but the market sees it.

    If enough people believe that dividends are "free" (i.e. dividends paid out don't affect the stock price) and hence think that the share price recovers a few days after the ex-date...then the dividend capture strategy should work...in reverse :)

    "And to be as clear as possible, here's some other things I'm not saying:

    I'm not saying that the price might not go up after the dividend is paid."

    Thanks Larry. You should also debunk the idea that the ex-date reduction is temporary and obscured by market gyrations after a few days.

  • Why Selling A Few Shares Is Not The Same As Getting A Dividend [View article]
    mb...I'm not trying to pick an argument...quoting...

    Con: "When someone says the dividend hampers the company and keeps the share price down, but response is a resounding BULL! "

    I want to know why he says it is BULL? Is con able to prove that it is false?

    Con,

    Just to clarify. Are you saying that it is impossible for the stock to have done better had the company retained all their cash, or that you don't know (and don't care?).

    <,When someone says the dividend hampers the company and keeps the share price down>>

    Who said that? Can you quote the specific argument?

    <<How are companies like Exxon and Coca Cola able to pay such "magical" dividends for 100+ years uninterrupted through all kinds of economic environments yet at the same time grow the company?>>

    Easy, they are earning more money than they are paying out in dividends. Is that supposed to be counter-argument to something?
