  • MORL Still Attractive With 23.3% Dividend [View article]
    Edmond - On ETRADE, I search on DRIP to get to the page easily. Then you will see buttons for whether you want to add or delete a drip. Then it will show all of the stocks you have on which you can do the add or delete. Lastly, check the ones you want to change and click save. You will get a notification that a DRIP request was submitted, and again when it is complete. The stock will stay in DRIP mode until you change it again.

    GGjr - maybe he is trying to accentuate the positive...which in turn further mitigates the negative! :)

  • ETN Showdown: Is MORL Overvalued? [View article]
    JB - That is very true! I always warn about the panic dip (buying opportunity) that will happen when the Fed Rate raise is announced, but I agree that it will not be as severe or as long in recovery (still) as 2013 because it won't be a blindside or surprise.

    tom - You need to look up the effect of interest rate spreads on mREITs, their income, and their book value, and also how the speed (or rate) of the change is good or bad for mREITs. It is a balancing act.

    The price and dividend will change with the business cycles of the underlying stocks, but it is not likely to go "out of business". There will likely be a sharp drop due to irrational panic when the Fed Rate is initially raised (even a tiny token raise), and I will probably increase my percent of MORL afterward.

  • The Last Two Oil Crashes Show Peak Oil Is Real [View article]
    Craig - If you can't back up your claims, or at least share a link that supports them, then they are just a smoke screen.

    Not all oil is the same. Different kinds of oil are used by different refineries to produce different products.

  • ETN Showdown: MORL Correlations And Strategies [View article]
    "The Fed could make a token .25 basis point change to appease the right. Although there are many reasons that that would be the last of it, MORL will crash... and that will also be when I buy another batch."

    This is exactly what I am expecting to happen and do.

    JW - my wireless keyboard does the same thing sometimes, but only with SA! It makes me have to type very slowly! I thought it was just MY keyboard!

    There are no details yet, but typically, a rights offering allows current owners to buy a specific amount of shares at a specific discounted price upon execution of the rights offer coupon. That price is not available to non-owners (unless the stock tanks), and you generally are not able to buy more shares (at that discounted price) than your offer coupon specifies.

    I have a TD AmeriTrade account as well, but I haven't figured out how to select a DRIP yet. Can anyone give me a hint before I dive in to figure it out?

  • American Realty Capital: In Case You Forgot About The Lingering Risks [View article]
    Steve - I think the claims of fear mongering come when perspective is left out as in stating, "because this was all intentional fraud."

    Perspective increases accuracy. This was originally an inadvertent mistake of a few cents in one quarter followed by a purposeful misstatement in a following quarter to compensate for the original mistake. The right thing to do would have been to restate the previous quarter, and they made a bad choice. However, they weren't selling shares in the Brooklyn Bridge or doing a Bernie Madoff. Putting things in proper perspective will help prevent you from getting claims of fear mongering (just in case you care).

    However, this article provides information of which any prospective investor should be aware and evaluate. The effect on the share price is up for debate, but the facts are real.

  • ARMOUR And Javelin Looks Attractive At Current Valuations [View article]
    Look at all the boo bears looking in the rear view mirror! Maybe they thought this was a DGI type of stock and were disappointed with reality.

    For any investment/trade, you have to look at the root causes (not assumptions) of the past pops and drops, and all the variables that contribute to predictions of the future. Always blaming management is juvenile and shows ignorance of the variables.

    BTW, the mREITs aren't done dropping. There will be another panic related to the coming change in Fed Rate. The time to buy will be after the panic and after the prices have stabilized. Of course, then you need to look toward the next catalysts of change and not sit on your hands.
