  • REITs And You: An Introduction, With Some Tips [View article]
    James,

    Agree about the graphs. There is still more value in the written word, SUPPLEMENTED by graphics, not the other way around.

    Too many authors are in love with their graphs and charts, particularly the F.A.S.T. Graphs. I find them mind numbing and distracting. Kind of a generational thing, I suppose.

  • Dynex Capital Dividend Sustainability Analysis (Part 2) [View article]
    I've lost money on DX. Not a lot, but it leaks a little at a time. However, I'm DRIPing it, so there is some advantage to my overall c.b. and yield on cost.

    I always thought that a combination of Wellington and Wellesley would be all an investor would need for a complete portfolio.

    I should practice what I preach.

    Must be nice to just pick up a few thousand shares at the flick of a finger. Not to mention 100K of them.

    Talking about yield to cost. Mine's even higher, because I'm long at $31.75.

  • Durability Test: STAG Industrial [View article]
    Well Brad, I know that STAG has been one of your faves since it went public, but there's something that Mr. Market doesn't like about it; else, the stock wouldn't have been tanking compared to it's peers.

    It's fine to present data and logic, but that doesn't help investors who bought high and are now sitting low.

    Finally, one thing I note on the state concentration pie chart is that "other" is pretty significant at 36.8%. I think that renders that graphic incomplete.

    No argument there. Plus, their gas is always more expensive than other brands.

  • Rich Kinder Should Be Rooting For Lower Prices [View article]
    Pie,

    Well, then, you should have bought KMI in the first place, but you probably went for the larger distribution of KMP. It was your choice.....nobody forced you. So don't whine.

  • This High-Dividend Stock Yields Over 11%, Has 36% Cash Flow Growth, Goes Ex-Dividend Soon [View article]
    Recently learned that the dividends are reported on a 1099, not a K-1, which makes this stock even more attractive.

    I think the stock is acting the way it is because of the Greece dilemma. If they in fact live by the EU austerity restrictions (doubtful), then the Greek flagged shipping industry faces the prospect of much higher taxes. Right now their effective tax rates, after all the write off shenanigans, are close to zero.

  • Chicago forced to pay up to borrow; manager spots value [View news story]
    Chicago, like other cities, states, territories and countries who operate on a socialist model, is running out of other people's money.

  • Rich Kinder Should Be Rooting For Lower Prices [View article]
    Eli,

    I think you will drive yourself crazy trying to figure out what Kinder "actually meant".

    From what I've read, it sounds like a stream of consciousness coming from him, some of it contradictory and not entirely logical.

    Or, did he do this deliberately, just to get all you analysts all convulsed with analysis paralysis? Think about it!

    Does anyone know if these contracts are written with a penalty for cancellation clause in them?

    On an appeal, BP is on the hook to NE $138MM penalty for contract cancellation.
