  • Prospect Capital: Upcoming NAV Declines And Potential Credit Rating Downgrade  [View article]
    To paraphrase Rich; you buy, we'll sell, we'll see who comes out best in the long run.

    Do you think Buzz pulls his opinions out of thin air? Look at the backup data!

    109..

    Why SA, with their increasing slew of novice and substandard contributors, is becoming increasingly useless to the average investor. There are better sites out there now.

    Wolf,

    "poised for growth". Yeah, as long as govt. subsidies keep rolling in. Laughable.

    Wondering.....do you heat/cool your home with solar? Do you transport yourself via horse and buggy or bicycle? Do you read by candles? Do you sit with a hand crank and generate power for your appliances, tvs and computers?

    Go live off the grid entirely. THEN lecture us fossil fuel burning slobs.

    I didn't say you advised to short the stock, did I?

    Simply making an observation. Are we perhaps a tad over sensitive?

  • High-Dividend Stock Yields 16%, Has Strong Dividend Coverage, Priced Below Book Value  [View article]
    Oh yeah, let's all chase yield and go for a16% dividend flyer, in the maritime shipping business no less, which is probably one of the most volatile financial sectors on the planet.

    What recommendation next, betting the farm on LINE or VNR?

  • Linn Energy: Game Over?  [View article]
    GAME OVER?

    Was that a rhetorical question? Stock closed at 50 cents.

    Linn (mis)mgmt. recently said they are "exploring strategic alternatives". Can you say bankruptcy?

    Barron's took a victory lap today. Where are all the LINE cheerleaders?

    2nd bullet point. It's "tenet", not "tenant".

    Stock up two days in a row, with Friday bucking the bearish tide. I snoozed and lost.

  • 12 Stocks Raising Dividends And Expectations  [View article]
    Good article and good list. I am beginning to not automatically screen out stocks paying < 3%, and looking at the record of steady payouts and increases.

    I would choose SE, the C-corp over SEP, however. Don't like the K-1s. I want to do my taxes when I want, not be a slave to some leisurely reporting schedule.

  • ConocoPhillips extends losses after dividend cut decision  [View news story]
    Dave,
    Gotta read between the lines when "they" speak. Saying the dividend is "safe" means they will not suspend it. Notice they didn't say it would stay at the same payout level, however.

    It's cynical, but always have to look for the weasel clauses.

    YEAR END? What's the rush?

    Be surprised if it's that soon.

    Looks like a foot dragging Keystone process to me, and probably with the same decision.

  • Might Realty Income Partner With Amazon?  [View article]
    Mark,

    Good post. Very interesting.

    Seems like the customers are going to have to get used to an "Amazon" brick and mortar store. They do hear their own drummer.
