  • Cisco And National Oilwell Varco Are 2 Names To Put On Your Radar [View article]
    Abba

    Your Summary bullet points seem contradictory to me.

    First one says that both stocks are "overbought".
    Second one says that both are "undervalued".

    Did you mean oversold for #1?

  • BDC Rankings: March 2014 [View article]
    Buzz,

    FSC's profit is lower than their peers. Also, they are not earning their dividend; haven't been for all of '13 and into this year.

    Could you go into what's going on with them? I note that you consider them undervalued, and a buy. I'm thinking of taking advantage of the dip and picking some up.

    Thanks.

  • Elite 8 MoPay Dividend Dogs Vie For 18% To 36% Upsides [View article]
    Fredrik,

    Is ROYT not on the list because of their limited dividend history (only since '12)?

    Just catching up with your subject matter on this, so am not quite sure of the criteria. Assume it's same as the Dow Dogs?

    Thanks,

    Well, since the ETN is currently trading at a slight discount, calling it at NAV wouldn't be a bad thing, correct?

    This admn.'s picking everyone's pockets. $1B is chump change compared to the loot Jamie had (and will have to) to fork over.

    Gotta pay for their screwball schemes somehow, I guess.

    Which is, of course, the object of the exercise. Thanks. Albert.

    Long O ~38, so it didn't go low enough to accumulate any more.

    Thanks.

  • What Seeking Alpha Is Doing To Prevent Paid Stock Promotion [View article]
    All articles are, in the final analysis, opinions. Your "stodgy statistics" can be manipulated to suit a point of view. Nobody minds that, but.....

    A few SA authors have a large novice and naive following of syncophants whom they shamelessly manipulate, Most of these writers do not appear as often anymore since offering a "premium" services.

    Nobody expects "perfection", either, as evidenced by the contrary comments expressed in most any article.

    What exactly is it you've learned from "blatant shills"?

    Eli,

    A welcome, if overdue, development.

    I think that many SA readers were ahead of you on this curve. It became apparent to more than a few of us that certain authors, particularly ones with huge followings, were trying to manipulate their herd to their advantage.

    One comes to mind immediately; an author who writes about the same stocks repeatedly, with alternating buy and sell signals. It doesn't take a scholar to figure out that this person is trading in and out of these equities. Not un-coincidentally, the subject author has recently established a "premium" site. I will share the name of this person with you on the "hot line" address you have provided as he is still active with SA.

    Thanks for recognizing the problem and taking action. Hopefully this will remain a priority issue and you will be following with updates.

    Thanks again.

    Rowan has not paid a dividend since 2009; ATW has never paid one.

    In this volatile sector, a dividend yield is imperative, for me anyway.

    I went long ESV last week on the dip. I like their fundamentals better as well as their business model, especially in terms of standardization of their fleet.
