  • Prospect Capital: What Comes Next? Part 3 [View article]
    Good bullet points on factors affecting NAV. First two are obvious, last one I hadn't thought about, but which makes perfect sense.

    Learn something new on each article.

    Thanks.

  • Norway's wealth fund rises in Q2 but warns about Russia tensions [View news story]
    The Russian thing is temporary. Does anyone really think that the Russians are going to stop piping oil to Western Europe? Where else will they sell it? Ok, maybe China, but is there a pipeline infrastructure in place? If not, shipments would have to be either rail overland or by ship, either of which is much more expensive.

    And I doubt if Russian "bans" on incoming foodstuffs and other products will be any more than a temporary annoyance, not a long lasting crisis.

    Economically, and considering the financial aspects, the west holds the cards, at least long term.

  • Why Ensco PLC Has An Extremely Bright Future [View article]
    I agree with the gist of your article except for one point: Africa.

    This is a place to avoid, even offshore. Graft, corruption, crime, disease and just about every other negative on can think of happens here. The smart companies are pulling out, not increasing exposure.

    realtor,

    Shouldn't make comments on a topic about which you know nothing. Your lack of knowledge of how the car business works in apparent.

    Regulations? The Obama Administration? NO, that can't be, as pro-business as they are.

  • Apartment Investment And Management Co. Preferred Stock, Opportunities And Risks [View article]
    I'm willing to settle for lower dividend preferred stock rated BBB or higher. Besides, I own a bunch of AIV common which is all the exposure I want in this company. Gratified to see that their prospects are improving, as it's been a wild ride in the 10+ years I've owned the stock. Was DRIPing during the downturn, however, so my cb is really low now.

  • Russia may ban car imports if West imposes new sanctions [View news story]
    Last I checked, Russia neither a flourishing car industry nor a huge demand, so let them ban western imports. I'm sure GM, Ford and others will be able to withstand a not-so-crushing blow like this.

    Vlad is just throwing everything against the wall to see what might stick.

    MWinMD,

    Impressed that you know enough multi-syllable words to scramble them into a totally incomprehensible sentence.

    Keynes went broke several times. Better check your history.

    Neither will Soros. He'll be presiding over an Elizabeth Warren dinner, who'll be one of the prime movers of the society Rand correctly envisions, which will cause Galt to emerge.

  • Why Transocean Is A Great Buying Opportunity In A High-Yielding Stock [View article]
    Based on your 'competitors' data, and also my research, ESV is my choice in this high-beta sector. Long ESV.
