  • 2 Companies To Hold For The Next 25 Years [View article]
    I'd hold SLW just for the eventual rise in PM prices over the next 25 years. Tho we're fighting to not get sucked under by deflation at the moment, I believe we will have to deal with some inflation before the next 25 are up. SLW will likely rise considerably when that occurs, and the CG should be pretty good when it finally does.

    I don't know that I would hold it for the next 25 years 'no matter what', as I'd want to harvest those gains as they will likely come sooner than that imo.

  • The U.S. Market Is Overheating [View article]
    Agree completely about earnings being helped with buybacks via ZIRP.

    When the tap stops flowing (buybacks slow down/stop), prices start going (down).

    The market reversal at the end of today bears watching imo.

    Maybe earnings fears or maybe nothing...we shall see.

    Great comment, but have to correct you on one thing:

    I believe the most important takeaway from this article is watching the level of buybacks, specifically those that are mentioned and/or updated in the upcoming earnings calls. If the consensus is buybacks will slow (or worse) down, I think investors will sense that the financial engineering of earnings (both for paying/increasing divs and for continuing buybacks) is winding down-or at least slowing down.

    The moment big investors sense the tide turning w/re to this issue (if it does), that could be tipping point for a correction.

    I don't see a panic, only certain investors deciding that there are better uses for their $ right now, like MO.

  • Comparing Prospect Capital Corp.'s NAV, Investment Portfolio, Dividend, And Valuation To Several BDC Peers - Part 2 [View article]
    As is usually the case, MAIN is trading at a premium b/c it's dividend is perceived as safer than that of PSEC and FSC, which imo is true. I've watched it fluctuate btwn $28-32 for quite a while, so buying when it is around $30 or less is a decent strategy, esp if one is in it for income and not CG.

    I think GE, particularly w/ Immelt at the helm, has earned all the hate it gets.

    If they had a dividend of 5%+, and DIDN'T CUT IT, then I could see Immelt and co telling the haters to shove it.

    Until then-no.
