  • Annaly Capital: Dividend Could See An Increase In The Next 6-12 Months. [View article]
    Bill, And you will note, the author has left her typo uncorrected. I don't know about you but I would hold the author of an article to a higher standard than a casual commenter.

    That commenter you referred to wasn't getting paid for his comments, and he didn't have the ability to submit a change request.

    "I think we could its dividend behavior take a positive turn over the next 6-12 months."

    Huh?

    Don't you proof read your articles?

    Are you aware of any analysis of options pricing following ex-div?

    "exactly, what a joke"

    Michael, without a quote or a name, this comment of yours seems to be mocking your own post. Don't you think it might make sense to indicate who you're responding to?

    Why is this so hard for people to grasp?

    Yes, I see what you mean now. I misunderstood your prior statement.

    "so you will get one next month about the same time as this one gets paid."

    The distribution gets paid next week, not next month.

    I don't know who you are replying to, you didn't say, but the dividend is paid to the owner of record on the day it goes x-div. Buying on that day will not get you the div as you would not be the owner of record on that day. To get the div, you typically need to buy the day before it goes x-div.

    No you wouldn't get the dividend if you bought today because you wouldn't be the owner of record today. That's why the price dropped.

  • Can First Solar Stay First Or Will It Be Last? [View article]
    While we're on the topic of subsidies, why hasn't the US military budget been considered largely a subsidy for oil? How well would solar power fare is it got that kind of a subsidy and we wouldn't have to kill anyone?

  • Marcellus Slows Dramatically: U.S. LNG Investments Could Suffer, Coal Producers Could Gain [View article]

    Downplay the potential dangers? Are you kidding me? The potential dangers have been taken so seriously that they have the best safety record in the history of the Universe. Why are you worried about Chernobyl when no reactor built since the 1950s is without a containment vessel today? Are you worried that we should be concerned about the brake systems of cars built in the 1950s? Do you think cars built today have the same brake systems as those from 60 years ago? What about airplanes? Should we ground all of them because an old DC3 crashed back in the 80s? The nuclear neurotics think that way because they've been told to think that way. It's called "group think". Why not think for yourself?

    Chernobyl was a design that we obsolete in the late 50s. It had no containment vessel. That's almost 60 years since it was deigned. The accident was the result of an intentionally set off thermal runaway to test their shutdown procedures. Virtually every blunder know to man was committed which resulted in a steam explosion. The results are well known. Do you really think no safety advances have taken place in the last 60 years? What other industry would you condemn based on a 25 year ago blunder on a 60 year old design?

    My Grandfather died at the bottom of a coal mine. That's 1 person more than all the people who have ever been killed by all the nuclear accidents in the western world combined throughout all of recorded history. What other industry has a safety record of ZERO fatalities in it's entire history? Airlines? Railroads? School buses? Baby cribs? Elevators? Coke bottling machines? Nothing else does yet you are afraid because someone told you it's unsafe.... The nuclear industry has an absolutely phenomenal safety record unmatched and unapproachable by any other industry on earth. Yet people are told to be afraid. Who's telling them that and why?

    I have no association whatsoever with the nuclear power industry. I just choose to think independently. I own no stock involved with the industry with the exception of GE.

    You claimed countless deaths and birth defects from Fukushima, and the WHO, who's paper I posted, says the increase in cancer deaths is too small to be detectable. In other words, the World Health Organization says you don't know what you're talking about.

    The National Academy of Sciences says you don't know what you're talking about either:

    It's pretty clear that you are just parroting nonsense you've been told to believe. Go join the others who believe everything they're told. I prefer to deal in facts.

    Before you embarrass yourself further, why don't you check out how much radiation is actually detectable in the ocean from the Fukushima incident. You'll find out you're exposed to more radiation by eating a banana.

    I see things 180 degrees from you on this. I think we have a culture of nuclear neurotics in the media who would exaggerate things all out of proportion to spread fear. The facts bear that out. The fact is the nuclear industry has far and away the best safety record of any significant energy source with ZERO accidents that exposed anyone to meaningful levels of radiation in the entire western hemisphere. Three Mile Island was a joke and the reporters who hysterically covered the "disaster" got more radiation from their airliner flight at 35,000ft to cover the story than anyone did on the ground. Yet the nuclear neurotics still think it was a disaster. A previous poster demonstrated the problem perfectly. Without checking his facts, he claimed the Fukushima incident would result in high cancer death rates, birth defects and uninhabitable land for a half million years. Utter nonsense yet it is the popular belief of the ignorant victims of group think. The WHO found otherwise. The neurotics think we have a nuclear waste problem and the media will encourage that belief, but they will never tell you that the spent fuel is recyclable and always has been. We don't recycle because Jimmy Carter signed an executive order forbidding it due to fears there would be weapons grade material at one stage of the recycling process (no longer true). So 40 years later the waste problem is there because we won't recycle like France does and get's ~80% of their electricity from nuclear power. Zero pollution, Zero CO2 yet vilified by the ignorant hysterics who forced us to use Coal because it was "safer" than nuclear, even though coal has dumped 100,000s of tons of radioactive uranium and thorium directly into our atmosphere.

    If you want to fear something, fear the ignorant group thinkers.

    "I care less about winning arguments or being "right"

    Smart decision when you're completely wrong.
