  • Ubiquiti Networks Has A Cost Advantage [View article]
    All good points, yet the stock is off 40% in the last year. Hard to understand unless the market is concerned about something these figures don't show. Market saturation perhaps?

  • 50/50 Portfolio (BDCs And mREITs) HYI, Q1 2015 Update [View article]
    Have you considered adding oil & gas stocks such as KMI, LINE, etc? That's I've done and it gives you better diversification than just a 50/50 RE and BDC income portfolio.

    Now wait a minute - I did respect her in the morning - several times!

    I may pick up some more despite the devastation to my income portfolio. But pairing it with DUG is probably a good idea if you buy it here.

  • Money flows back into fixed income [View news story]
    It's been obvious to me for some time that the Fed can't or won't raise interest rates beyond just a token amount within the next several years. Yet despite that dividend-oriented stocks such as BDCs, REITs, MLPs, etc have been absolutely creamed. Overreact much? Or is there something else lurking out that that we don't see?

  • Cash Is King: Here Is How To Take Advantage Of The Big Sell-Off [View article]
    Interesting stock, horrible chart. I'd wait to pull the trigger until the chart action shows some kind of base. Otherwise you're just catching a falling knife.

  • Time To Get Out Of eBay [View article]
    To me, this has been, and continues to be, a channeling stock. If you're a trader you can make some money by selling at the top (around 60) and buying at the bottom(around 50). I'd have to see the stock drop sharply below 50 and stay there to believe that this pattern is now broken.

  • The Bull's Self-Delusion [View article]
    Maybe. But the minute rates start to rise organically, the fed will be forced to intervene again. Why? Because this country can't afford to service its huge national debt unless interest rates are low.

    Where is the author's evidence of state-side deflation? I'm sure not seeing any here.;t=

  • Facebook Gets A Rare Downgrade [View article]
    If there's just one lesson that all investors should have learned in 2008, it's that practically all analyst recommendations are baloney. Especially a downgrade that keeps the same target price as before. Ridiculous.

  • Stock Markets' Record Highs Are Merely A Fed-Conjured Illusion [View article]
    You may be right, but the market can remain irrational far longer than you can remain solvent. Discounting demonstrated chart action in favor of "wave theory" is madness, IMO. Speaking as a once-burned former Robert Prechter susbscriber. But good luck with it.

  • Kinder Morgan Energy Partners: Buying When Others Are Fearful? [View article]
    In principle the author's comments make sense. But this is a really ugly chart - it's broken short and log-term trend-lines on increasing down volume, and shows no real sign of having bottomed. Under those circumstances I'd wait to buy until the technical indicators say so. Why catch a falling knife?;c=

  • mREITs Are The True Dividend Champions, And Safer Than You May Think [View article]
    OK - but you really need to consider risk-adjusted return. For example, you could reasonably buy J&J on margin and thereby add around 50% to its income stream while maintaining a pretty good margin of safety. But you'd be a real fool to buy any of the mortgage REITs that way, for obvious reasons.

    These kinds of things ALWAYS turn out to be buying opportunities. The only question is - how far down will we go?
