  • Alon USA Partners Doubles Capacity To Support 15% Yield With Refinery Purchase [View article]
    Tim,

    This one certainly looks oversold and in bargain territory NOW. FCF dividend coverage alone is 1.37.

    Debt is a little worrisome, however. D/E is 1.4 vs. industry average of .4

    Thanks.

  • Does The End Of QE Portend A New Beginning For Income Investors? [View article]
    Adam

    Under the possibility of interest rate hike sprees that you mention, then that would be the time to buy bonds. Their prices will fall the resultant yield will rise.

    Therefore, under that scenario (which I think is quite likely) isn't now be the time to start taking profits on bonds or bond ETFs, CEFs, or mutual funds? I think so.

    Thanks.

    Yes, triple net leases are much better than RIDEA. HCP to date has eschewed the latter.

  • The Secret Ingredient Of Dividend Growth Stocks [View article]
    I can see where DGI and YOC strategies can both be utiliized. Doesn't have to be one or the other. Even DRIPing accomplishes the latter, to a small degree, in down markets.

    With lower gas prices, the industry should be able to foist more big SUVs and pickups on the short-sighted consumers, which are their big profit items.

    Most analysts peg Ford's fair value at ~ $23.

    Thanks.

  • Pfizer Does Not Need AstraZeneca [View article]
    Bought a bunch of stocks at their lows in 09-10, but PFE, while in the running, wasn't one of them. Could have locked in a nice dividend and seen a double in c.b. My mistake.

  • Utilities Shouldn't Return 18% [View article]
    WDL,

    At least authors have an opinion to express. None write articles hammering each other.

    I would like it better if SA would block certain commenters. Care to venture a guess as to who would be at the top of that list?

    You were smarter than I. Kept waiting for it to go down to around 40, which it never did. It was the 'greed' thing.

    Good get.
