  • Prospect Capital: Oil, Energy And CLO Exposure [View article]
    since wall st is just a slow vegas in my useless opnion it cant hurt to buy a few shares @ this price for the good yield as long as it pays.as an old geezer i cant remember or list how many analysts have been so wrong about so much.bought many shares of GE @$7.61 in 09 @ the time a big name analyst was writing that GE would be bankrupt real soon.many of these guys dont come back to tell you how wrong they were about a situation but let you know loud & clear when they were right.think for yourself.

  • AT&T: Pension Accounting Still Not Conservative [View article]
    the folks responsible for funding the defined plans for T should just invest in T.they know the yield for now & they dont have to be so optimistic rather than conservative & avoid this farce.as these plans get phased out,hopefully,these situations will vanish.

  • AT&T: The $10 Billion Non-Cash Charge Is Not As Bad As It Seems [View article]
    there is more to this than the math examples shown here.how many cos are overfunded & how many underfunded re the defined pension plans?like so many politicians its just kicking the can down the road.its a good thing that these plans are coming to an end & the 401k & like plans will eliminate this farce.of course the hidden(to most emplyees)outrages fees of these plans will cut into their retirement but then again most will know who is playing in the super bowl but have no idea re their retirement.the 1%s love it.

  • AT&T: The $10 Billion Non-Cash Charge Is Not As Bad As It Seems [View article]
    how is it that the employees who have the job of figuring these pension projections cant get it right from the start? they should be conservative instead of optimistic.i guess they should invest 100% in T.LOL.that way they would know what the income will be.but then-what do i know?not much.

    predictions?in 2009 an unnamed wall st brain predicted that ge would go bankrupt in the near future.i bought all i could afford @$6.71.a little earlier,predictions of $150-200bbl oil & we would run out of the stuff a day after tomorrow.LOL.much earlier when ma bell was broken up i was advised"keep ma,sell the babies".i was also advised"keep the babies & sell ma".being not so smart i kept them all.made my retirement.the chinese govt collects $42 million @ day from cig taxes.not sure what japan collects but when i was in both countries smoking was "in".between these taxes & early deaths(little or no pension to worry about)the politicians cant be too strong against smoking or other taxes will really have to go up.

  • A Couple Of Lessons From Hawaii Electric [View article]
    maybe these were the same predictors of $150-200bbl oil & we would run out the day after tomorrow.HE can get solar & wind same as everybody but maybe cheaper.

  • AT&T declares $0.47 dividend [View news story]
    did not mean to "set anyone off".just never understand all these complaints.unless you are on the inside,wall st is just vegas but slower & more complicated.analysts are all over the place on the same cos.you really have to think for yourself in this risk-reward game.how many of these brains predicted $50-60 bbl oil?i remember predictions of $200 bbl & running out oil the day after tomorrow.LOL

  • Update: Finally Some Good News For BP's Business Economic Loss Settlement [View article]
    as a long time shareholder what annoyed me most was that this accident & loss of life did not have to happen.the safety record of this co was nothing to brag about.the silver lining for me was i bought more shares @ a real bargain price & my yield now is fantastic.
