  • American Realty Capital Is Still A Speculative Security Suspended In Animation [View article]
    nope, directed at my friend nsolot who brags about his autographs from the CEO's he gives advice.

    Heck, I met Bobbie Bowden before and got his autograph (not bragging) :) Go Noles! Especially our girls basketball team that made it to the elite 8!

    However, you did make a mistake of quickly selling for a loss based on emotion and dwelling way too much on the past, other than that your a great guy.

    I wouldn't worry to much about that debt, they are going to have a nice war chest before they start paying a common dividend again.

    Were have you been spring breaking at Panama City Beach close to my neck of the woods?

    Are you going to work another swing or have a short position to cover, or are you just about done working this position?

    Just tell the folks what your real agenda is with this company.

    rip,

    I would be surprise if they would announce a dividend at this time. The new CEO will not be participating in this conference call. It's only a guess, but I believe they will wait until he has full control.

    I would rather the company build a nice war chest, pay off debt and perhaps start a share buyback program, at least while the shares are still cheap.

    I am a little lucky that I hedged my common stock position with their preferred shares, so I still have a monthly income coming from half of the investment.

    Anyway, it's just a guess on my part, on the 30th we will know more. Best wishes, gratian

    ALL can do the "back door" process of a non deductible Traditional IRA to a ROTH IRA to get around income limitations.

    ARCP made a little bit of pocket change.

    DAYTONA BEACH SHORES — An Arizona-based real estate investment trust has bought the beachside property and building leased to a Red Lobster restaurant.

    Spirit Realty Capital paid more than $2.45 million for the property and building in the Surfside Square commercial center at 3162 S. Atlantic Ave. in Daytona Beach Shores, according to Volusia County property records. The transaction, which does not include the restaurant itself, closed Feb. 13.

    Orlando-based Darden Restaurants sold its Red Lobster chain and properties last year to San Francisco-based Golden Gate Capital, which then sold the real estate for those restaurants to American Realty Capital in New York City. American Realty then leased the properties back to the restaurants.

    American Realty Capital in August paid $1.9 million for the Daytona Beach Shores Red Lobster property and building, according to property records. The restaurant was built in 1986 and remodeled in 2012.

    I am also in agreement, very misleading title.

    Do you not believe the market has priced in any risk that you could imagine?

    I'm glad I "bought" instead of "panic selling" at 52 week lows, although it is easy to catch the "Nervous Bunny Rabbit" (NBR) disease, if one is not careful.

    My unscientific research indicates far less articles on $ARCP as the share price slowly floats upward :)

    This is going to be a nice ride over the next year or two.
