  • January Utility Dogs Cast Up To 30.5% Yield, 129% Upside, And 157.5% Gain For 2017  [View article]
    Any good reason as to why BIP is falling so fast on a day like today when everything else is mostly up? This used to be a "buy and forget" stock. What happened?

  • Report: Apple working on wireless Beats headphones, removing 3.5mm iPhone headphone jack  [View news story]
    I am 77 years old, and I am for a wireless headphone or earbud if sound quality is comparable to a wired one. You see, I am not conservative.

  • Turkey moves ahead with EU entry bid  [View news story]
    The despot (Tayyip Erdo─čan) is fooling his people. He has made Turkey a theocracy reminiscent of the Middle Age. Europe will never accept Turkey.

  • Has Apple Started The Mac's Decline?  [View article]
    Let Tim Cook speak for himself. I have iPhone 6s, MacBook Air (13.3 inch), MacBook Pro (15-inch), an old iMac, and iPad. My family and I need them all for different reasons and uses. My MacBook Air or Pro is the one I cannot live without

  • Apple Sold 13 Million iPhones On Launch Weekend - That Should Frighten Investors  [View article]
    I love these Apple bashers. They have been predicting the demise of Apple in the past 25 years. Each time they predict doomsday for Apple, the stock goes down, and I add another 50-100 shares. I have a limit order.

    Ok. Go ahead; sell Apple and buy Microsoft. Hopefully, I will pick up more Apple shares if indeed you and those who believe you sell their shares and provide a good entry point for me.

  • Top BDC Predictions For May: 23% Yield; 30% Upside; And 42.8% Net Gain  [View article]
    I own PSEC, PNNT, MCC, and TCRD and am losing my pants with each of them. I am holding them with the hope that dividends will help recover some of my losses. OK, this interest rate hike rumor has been around for almost 3 years now, and by this time BDCs and mREITS should have absorbed the effect of the hike rumors since they have lost so much value. Why do they still keep losing each time the rumor machine is activated?

  • Avoid Turkey's Stock Market, But Its Bonds May Be Worth A Look  [View article]
    Turkey is sliding into a despotic dictatorship under Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He has polarized the country into two camps with irreconcilable world views. His regime is full of graft, corruption and bribery besides being oppressive. He is masterfully creating and using divisive issues almost on a daily basis; the country may face a civil war in the near future. I would not invest in government bonds unless they and their interest rates are dollar denominated. Investing in bonds with the Turkish Lira will be a recipe for loss because high inflation and unavoidable devaluations of lira will wipe out any gains. If you have risk appetite, satisfy it elsewhere where there is political stability, transparency and accountable leadership.

  • BDC Total Returns Q1 2015: Part 2  [View article]
    Thanks, Buzz and commentators. If I understand you PSEC, MCC and a few other BDCs are low quality and we should probably sell them if we own them. However, other analyses and analysts list these losers as "strong buys" or "buy first". What gives?

  • Turkey briefly bans Twitter, YouTube over hostage crisis  [View news story]
    Turkey is a dictatorship and has been so increasingly in the past decade. Freedom and democracy loving foreign investors should stay away from Turkey. Plus, it is just risky to do business in a country whose president is a thief, bribe-taker, liar, and a megalomaniac, supported by 50% of people as shown in recent elections.

  • Samsung S6 Will Keep Up Competition With Apple  [View article]
    Another Apple-bashing article. This is how some writers and Apple haters make their living. My first and only smartphone is an iPhone 5, which I have been using for two years now. And, I have used it all over the world without any problem. The only issues my family members experienced with their iPhones and iPads resulted from our grand children dropping them and shattering the screens. Let every consumer buy and use the gadget he/she likes, Apple's or somebody else's. We do not need self-appointed, biased experts to tell us what to buy.
