  • Arch Coal: Cutting Supply Remains Key To Long-Term Survival [View article]
    A good article and a lot of illuminating comments on an industry about which I know little, except that it is decline, and the reasons (mainly political) for this state of affairs.

    Would a change in administrations and congress provide any significant relief for the long term, or is it inevitably doomed?

  • And An Empty Suit Shall Lead Them [View article]
    Most European economic pronouncements are empty, so fitting they should be delivered by empty suits.

  • Digging Through The Carnage In The Energy Sector [View article]
    The biggest bargain among the majors is RDS-B, in my own opinion. It is a turnaround and culture adjusting situation which will propel the company forward once oil prices begin again to increase again, which they inevitably will.

    Interesting that wars and global turmoil, which usually cause energy supply jitters with resultant price spikes, have not had that effect this time.

  • BDC Pricing For Q4 2014: Part 1 [View article]
    Right, agree that the whole sector is struggling. MAIN is best in breed and the one to hold through thick and thin, in my opinion.

  • BDC Pricing For Q4 2014: Part 2 [View article]
    Big deal. They raised it $ .01/qtr. this year. Right, a whole penny. Don't know if my calculator has enough decimals to calculate the percentage.

    Rose,

    Right. Before anyone gets too excited about PSEC, read Buzz's PART I which shows PSEC's dividend coverage to be near the bottom.

    Long PSEC, but maybe not for long. What good is a big dividend if the principal is getting hammered?

  • Trick Or Treat, You Can't Beat This REIT [View article]
    Brad,

    HCP slipped under 40 today. A buy?

    M* rates fair value at $51.

  • How To Withdraw Money Sensibly From Your Retirement Portfolio: Part 1 [View article]
    My plan is to leave my principal as intact as possible, instead satisfying my RMD requirement and living expenses as much as possible via dividends. If I do have to sell something to make up an RMD difference, I will immediately reinvest the after tax balance in VWAHX, Vanguard Hi-Yield Muni Fund.

    However, at age 72, I'm not "retired" yet. Still working.

  • Sabra Health Care: High-Yield Play At Attractive Valuations [View article]
    Bret,

    This is really interesting. Where do you find these? I've run all different criteria stock screens, but can't remember one pulling up SBRA.

    A slight quibble with you over leverage vs. HCP. If you mean debt, SBRA's D/E is 1.03. HCP's is .83

    Source: FINVIZ

    Thanks.
