  • Online brokers tumble; Schwab decries HFT [View news story]
    I am not afraid of HFT, but I can see how many small traders would be. In any case, investors should not worry about HFT, because the objectives are so different. Remember, Knight? HFT's can and will go bust from time to time. I just hope they don't all do a swan dive at the same time.

  • Hawaiian Electric says it's not considering a dividend cut [View news story]
    There are some brave folks living in volcano zones. Beautiful, yes. But not a profitable place to build infrastructure. For them solar is the way to go. This is not a threat to HE's main business.

  • Fitbit in a legal bind [View news story]
    My band has no nickel. It's rubber and plastic.

    However, the band breaks easily. And the device might be more accurate if worn around the ankle.

    I have worn wrist band for about 5 months. I sleep, shower, swim, with it on. No problem.

  • Ares Capital: Q4 2013 Update [View article]
    Do you are a "days to cover" figure for how much stock needs to be sold when S&P kicks ARCC out of it's indexes?

  • The Fitbit Force gets recalled [View news story]
    Rash? No. The darn band breaks in six months and they want $14.95 to replace it. And the device is not very accurate.

  • Amdocs Offers Great Value [View article]
    I would point out that David Einhorn has recently taken a position in DOX.

  • Medley Capital: Continues To Cover Its High Dividend [View article]
    If the NAV involves guesswork, then we really don't know that the frequent secondary offerings are done at above NAV.
    The chart of on their website shows a parabolic rise in earnings, as if the recession never happened.
    Then there is this disturbing story:
    http://nyti.ms/1iEkc5k
    The relevant part of the story says:
    "Fintan Partners recently filed suit in New York against the fund manager Medley Capital over its refusal to make cash redemptions from the Medley Opportunity Fund. Late last year, Fintan sought to redeem its investment in Medley Opportunity, but the fund managers refused to honor the request. In its filing, Fintan argues that Medley’s refusal to honor its redemption request in cash represents a breach of contract under the terms of its original agreement with the fund."
    I have not been able to find any follow up to this report, dated June 2012.
    I think I will pass on this BDC.

  • Medley Capital: Continues To Cover Its High Dividend [View article]
    I have been looking at the Medley website. What does "externally managed" mean? Why aren't the BOD members listed, with the usual bio's that are seen on other annual reports?
    And why does management not attend their independent directors meetings? Who really approves the deals they do? Why is NAV reported only quarterly?

  • UPS clears Christmas pile-up [View news story]
    The Target hack probably accounted for a significant amount of the delivery problem. Many new bank cards had to be re-issued. UPS was the carrier of choice in my relatives cases.

    This site will answer any question about CEF's, although it is run by Nuveen.

    California municipals are doing well today. For instance, $NKX is up over 2% off a nearly 10% discount.
    By the way, several of the Nuveen municipals will roll up into $NAC sometime after the first of the year.
