    >The debt is so high that they cannot "print the difference" any more without triggering the increase in rates.<

    george,

    Depends on the time frame. Over the life of SPLV, it is very close to SPX[1].

    ARR[1] is run by the same crew that almost destroyed Bimini Capital Management (BMNM)[2]. The reverse split is sending a message. I would not go near that stock.

    I vote for charts and graphs. I use a desktop PC with a large screen so I have no problem seeing them.

    The chart's URL has an operand that drives the additional indicators: &a=...

    Once that operand is in the URL, anyone can use it, which is why you can share the chart. All it takes to penetrate stockcharts' paywall is to know how the &a operand is built.

    ftg,

    I do not agree with your characterization of "taking the profit". That would be taking undeserved / unearned cash compensation. Selling a few shares does not constitute "taking the profit", especially when you can see a history of net buying shares.

    I picked one of the executives, Roger Stout, at random, and looked at his share ownership back to 2010. On 7/10/2010 he owned 102311.057 shares. On 6/25/2015 he owned 149646.829 shares. That is a large increase. My source is SEC filings, not Yahoo.[1]
