  • Prospect Capital: What Comes Next? Part 2  [View article]

    Why are you sniping? The author simply wrote an article, which was rather neutral in tone, laying out some facts and expressing an opinion. If you have a different point of view, write a piece of your own instead of engaging in thinly veiled personal and professional attacks.

    It's ok to disagree, but not by being disagreeable.

  • Teekay LNG Partners, L.P. - Expensive At Current Prices?  [View article]
    In this sector, relatively new operator DLNG may be the better buy, but it too is overbought right now.

    I'm not so pessimistic about LNG. Won't there be a demand in Europe/Ukraine, if the Russians try to starve that region in retaliation of the sanctins?

    Hey Ralph!

    DLNG was one of the top MLP performers last week, up over 7%. Total return over 12 months is 36.50%!

    Don't know how I missed this article last Dec.

  • American Realty Capital Vs. Realty Income: Will The Real REIT Please Stand Up!  [View article]
    Article in Friday WSJ about Nick's upcoming compensation, which could reach $94mm if the company attains certain 'goals'. Nick's response? Basically, hey I'm worth it!

    I do think he's just a little too egotistical and brazen for his own or the company's goo in the long term.

    ENOUGH POLITICS ALREADY!!! This is an investment forum, supposedly. Can we return to the topic at hand, please?

    Everyone else go to Yahoo, Politico, Move On or wherever to continue your partisan debates.

  • Ford Motor To Join GM's Recall Armageddon?  [View article]
    Holder's persecution of Toyota was an Obama Administration publicity stunt to try to show his union constituencies that he's tough on these imports.

    Tesla doesn't have that many cars out there to recall anyway.

  • Prospect selling knee-jerk, or something more?  [View news story]
    Vanguard owns neither PSEC nor any other BDC, for that matter. At least not in their Total Stock Market Index fund which contains some 3700 stocks.

    Vanguard doesn't have any niche index funds that cover things like BDC & mREIT sectors. A little too spicy for them.

    <<...because one or two ambulance-chasing law firms filed suit against PSEC...>>

    I own PSEC and follow every bit of news on it I see. I have noticed nothing about lawsuits from trial law firms. What I DO know is that there is an SEC inquiry, and that's never good news. They don't investigate companies on whims.

    Better double check whatever news source you read about lawsuits.

  • NextEra Energy Inc. - Dividend Fact Sheet  [View article]
    Long NEE since 1992, DRIPing the whole time. Very pleased as a couple of hundred share investment has grown to nearly 6 figures.

    I could have written this article myself! LOL.

  • Kinder Morgan: How Feasible Is A GP Buyout?  [View article]

    So then you really don't know at all that "this was made pretty clear at last week's annual meeting", correct?

    Pretty good object lesson to verify everything one reads on SA from either authors or commenters. At best, it's opinion; at worst, well......

  • Recalls pile up at record rate  [View news story]
    I think the fact that GM accounts for 2/3 of the recalls should indicate that this outfit hasn't changed one iota.

    Is this good or bad? Don't want to have my usual knee-jerk negative reaction to just about anything this admn. does.

  • General Motors' Recalls: A Balanced And Historical Investment Perspective  [View article]

    Interesting question in your last sentence. I would have to say that Ford and Chrysler definitely learned from past mistakes; I would argue that GM still hasn't. From what I know, their organizational structure is still as Byzantine as ever.

  • Do Dividends Lower Stock Prices? Part II  [View article]
    I believe that there is already data comparing, via various benchmarks, the performance over time of dividend paying companies to those who do not, and do not the dividend payers win in every case?
