  • Monthly Pay Dividend Dogs: Elite Lists For October [View article]
    Good article Fredrik, as usual. Thanks. I did notice you have a price for GOOD in List 1 of $26, which is $8-$10 above the current price.

    LOL, if I had said that to my ex before the divorce, she would have told me that, with my looks, I'd have to do a lot better.

  • Marcato Sends Letter to American Realty Capital Properties [View article]
    Well said, Sir. Your letter succinctly addresses the concerns of many shareholders, who appreciate an aggressively acquisitive management, but, at the same time, are puzzled by actions and missteps which are, hopefully, an uncharacteristic departure from its overall performance. You have performed an important service by raising these issues.

  • Why Does Mr. Market Fear American Realty Capital Properties? [View article]
    Brad, Thanks for another great article. Your F.A.S.T.graph projection is attention-grabbing. If the projected growth is realized, ARCP will richly reward early investors' patience. The words "dirt cheap" and "potential" are meaningful , but investors will need to be confident in the management team Nick is putting together.

    "neigh-sayers", I like that, but it should probably be used in reference to NYC pessimists and their Mayor.

  • A Few Reasons Why I'm Bullish On Home Depot [View article]
    One reason I decided to invest in HD is a recent visit to the local store. The company has a greeter posted near the door, who directs customers if they want to acquire a specific product. In a merchandise selling company, this is a brilliant stratagem, and one I haven't come across elsewhere.

  • Maintaining A Tactical Exposure To REITs And Other Dividend Paying Stocks [View article]
    You say you "couldn't agree more" though the first stocks you mention (AGNC & NLY) are mREITs, which I believe is a market Brad does not invest in. Have I misread him or you?

  • REITs To Buy And Hold In 2014 And Beyond [View article]
    Another fine article, Brad. Thanks! In another piece you mention LXP as a "dark horse" for 2014, but I notice that you don't list it among your holdings. Is there something we should conclude from this ?

  • Now Is The Time To Be Fearful [View article]
    The only things keeping the market up now are companies running "lean and mean" by trimming staffs, cutting employee benefits, and foregoing research and development. Eventually, these actions, which are self-preserving and instinctive, are going to have a negative impact on the market.

  • Now Is The Time To Be Fearful [View article]
    When has a government program ever resulted in "extra competition"? We are headed toward a single payer system where all competition has been eliminated. We are destined to face an environment of increasing healthcare costs as fewer providers deliver deteriorating services at increasing prices. Not good at all.

  • Is GE's Jeff Immelt The Next CEO To Get 'Retired'? [View article]
    Ask North Dakota about a "stagnant" energy market. The US is on the cusp of an energy boom, and GE is starting to realize it.

  • I'm Adding More SALSA To This Super-Sized Big Mac-Daddy Of REIT-Dom [View article]
    Thanks, Brad. Great information and thoughts on one of my favorite "projects".

    PS Congrats to you & your daughter, and best wishes for her success and happiness as a "Tarheel". I agree with your observation that their young lives are at Mach 4, so you must stop occasionally to "smell the roses". My oldest hits the big 4-0 this year. Where did the time go?
