  • Which BDCs To Buy After Selling Prospect Capital? [View article]
    Certain stocks seem to be bait for attracting discussion and controversy.

    Among them are PSEC, NLY, LINE/LNCO and a few others. Their fans seem to be very passionately bonded to them. Their fervor is almost religious.

  • Linn Energy: Staying On The Sidelines [View article]
    Very emotional group, these LINE/LNCO devotees.

    Best not to confuse them with facts, their minds are made up.

    Albert,

    What you say is sadly true, and unfortunately much of it due to political and ideological considerations which seem intent on squelching entrepreneurial tendencies in the U.S.

    Of course demand is growing because of lower oil prices. It's a Catch-22.

    nj,

    Agree.

    Unfortunately, SA's net of popularity has also dragged in a lot of flotsam and jetsam.

  • Investors Can Expect More Downside For Ensco, Despite A Resilient Performance [View article]
    NE's not to shabby debt-wise, either. And, they haven't cut their dividend-yet.

    I read all the comments, and PSEC seems to have attained something of a cult-like following, blithely ignoring logic and arithmetic. Their arguments are based on emotion, hope and impugning the motives of those who present rational counterpoints.

    All of which makes me happy that MAIN is my one and only BDC. I'll take a lower yield for safety and stability.

  • PetroVietnam says it acquired all Chevron assets in Vietnam [View news story]
    Acquired or nationalized?

    The "undisclosed sum" part is suspicious.

  • Offshore drillers sink as Ensco provides update [View news story]
    I'm fine with NE, long in the 16s. Not so fine with ESV. Nothing to do now but grab the handrails and hold on. Oil will recover. Always has. Just when is the question.

    Ah, the dreaded shorts surface again and are to blame, at least in the fantasies of some "investors". But wait, no Barron's article to demonize?

    Stocks don't necessarily go down because of short seller pressure.

  • Chevron Under $100 Is A Steal [View article]
    "Chevron Under $100. Is A Steal."

    Depends. I bought in in '10 in the $60s, which proves that even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now and then.

  • Chevron Under $100 Is A Steal [View article]
    It is, or was, anyway Last year's fcf was $2.41/share which covered the dividend.

  • SunTrust prefers KMI, EPD, RMP, MWE among midstream energy players [View news story]
    It only hurt if one held KMP or EPB.

    I held KMI and didn't feel a thing, except for a pleasant sensation of a pps going higher.

    Correa in Ecuador is a Chavez-Lite clone.

    Don't understand why so many American expats flock there.

    There's also an old saying, "Don't fight the tape."
