  • Retirement Income Planning With Johnson & Johnson [View article]
    I'd stay away from INTC and WMT. There's better options out there than those two, EPD for example.

  • Interview With Prospect Capital President And COO, Grier Eliasek [View article]
    It's been working out well for me and 2 of my clients. We are all a bit under water share price wise, but since our avg price is around $11, it's not too much.

    The big question for me is whether to add to any of our holdings right now (or wait).

  • Ensco: 5.7% Yield Supported By Long-Term Fundamentals [View article]
    An almost quiet co that doesn't get the press that SDRL, RIG, or DO get, yet is doing things right and preparing for bigger success going into the latter half of this decade. Their raising of the dividend last year is a very good omen imo.

    Long ESV for myself and 1 client

  • Report: Reynolds American prepping for Lorillard bid [View news story]
    Interesting, thanks spiro3. I'm in it for the income stream, so hopefully the new co will pay divs in the 5% area, with DG to follow.

  • Prospect's Growth Hides Bad Underwriting [View article]
    Excellent point, Argyll. I sense some here are suggesting PSEC is on borrowed time (no pun intended re borrowing).

    They made it through the GR relatively unscathed. Are the bears saying it was luck?? Hard to latch onto the truth. A lot of very interesting info here too, going both ways.

    Now we have BDC's being dumped from some indices, taking shares down with them. Then WF comes out and says there is good value in the sector.

    Keeping one's allocation relatively small seems prudent here. I'm tempted to add for clients under $11 (and for myself), but I'm cautious here.

    Good points frrizzo380. I'm not saying they should (or will) offer $60 a share, I'm trying to get an idea of where LO would be price wise if it gets bot out. There is definitely more than $60 a share in present and future value to LO shares. How much more will very interesting to see. I'm holding my shares for now.

    You make some good points but I disagree with your first one. I think there will be some fallout if T doesn't make this VOD deal happen. They may (or may not) redeem themselves with something else, but I feel very strongly that they are going to swing for a home run with the next 'thing'. I honestly don't believe they will just try to forge ahead with the internet of everything and some of these future ventures and hope investors are satisfied with that. IMO, they won't be. With T-Mobile running an aggressive campaign against T and VZ, both will need to show they can respond with more than a yawn.

    They will have to do something to spur future growth. My guess is through acquisition.

    I was thinking about that too. If the RAI story is true, and LO holds out, we could be leaving $ on the table selling in the mid $50s. Impossible to say what might occur at this point, but I'd say that LO will be over $60 a share should this deal happen. I haven't run the #s on a $20-22 billion deal, but we should continue to see some serious volatility in their pps.

    We should see $55-56 (more if there's a NR with details) tomorrow too, unless RAI says something to squash a deal.

    If the T/VOD deal becomes a reality, you can fuh-getta-bout a $30 pps.
