    Aren't you one of the many that told people to buy this stock when it was significantly higher?

  • Triangle Capital declares $0.54 dividend [View news story]
    "A decent price"??? When and where was that? The stock is down 30%+ for the last year, the last 2 years…All of that in has been up until the last few days the biggest Bull Market in generations. I'll take the 1 to 2% yield on Disney's and Apple's dividend (that is increased every year) every time. I own those stocks and a small amount of TCAP purchased at $28. If it wasn't in an IRA I'd sell for the tax loss. Enjoy that yield (or pray for a takeover) while they can pay the freight because management has shown repeatedly that they can only move the needle on the stock and earnings in one direction and it isn't up!

    That 11%+ yield doesn't quite match the 20%+ decline in the stock price the last 3 months.

  • Ensco - Time To Start Averaging Down [View article]
    Since the author doesn't have any intention of "averaging down now" I don't know why anyone else should feel like doing so. The vast majority of the "average down now" contributor crowd on SA were saying the same thing when this stock was well into the $20s. Caveat emptor!

  • A Much Needed Ensco PLC Update [View article]
    In answer to your question, yes in part. Gas and Oil were in the midst of a long up turn. I had made a lot of money on XOM, EOG trading in and out of them twice and I wanted to own a rig company. I got into it too late. I sold the XOM and EOG yet a third time for better than 30% profits, but stupidly held ESV with the correction/down turn in full force. I got rid of all but 200 shares and here I am. By the way, I'm still much better off than the falling knife catchers and advocates here.

  • A Much Needed Ensco PLC Update [View article]
    I sold most of my ESV in the $30s (I purchased it at $50) all in an IRA. The small number of shares I've held on to are usually heeded via covered calls which gave me a decent return. Now those calls have almost no premium so I'm stuck. I totally disagree with the approaches of holding on to all of your losers on the way down and to buying more of them ("averaging down") which in ESV's case has been "catching a falling knife." I will wait for the price of oil/gas to make a significant, lasting upturn and buy into that strength. These moves (both up and down) take a year or more, not a few weeks and months, so there will be plenty of time jump on board.

  • AbbVie: The Riskiest Dividend Aristocrat [View article]
    Yet again SA editors (if they have any other than the 4-letter word police) fail the readers and investors here.

  • Does Goldcorp Inc. Produce Economic Value For The Value Investor? [View article]
    My comment (not vulgar) was edited out for reasons unknown. I'll try again: This is a lot of work and a lot of math for something I decided on my own using common sense. Thanks, I think.

    Lots of hard work and heavy math to prove what common sense told me long ago! Thanks, I think.

  • BP - The Valuation Of This 7% Yielder Is Now Officially 'Stupid' [View article]
    You misunderstand. I don't care if they say oil will triple over night or whatever outrageous claim/prediction they care to make. SA should simply make it know that such a claim was made, i.e, list the author's previous articles on that particular stock or industry with the present article. It would make the previous poor and accurate calls known to all and allow the reader to make a better judgement on the value of the articles based on a contributor's real track record. The irony here is that the "contributors" making bad calls seem to appear on SA far more frequently than those making good calls!

  • BP - The Valuation Of This 7% Yielder Is Now Officially 'Stupid' [View article]
    Totally agree pelican. The author should print the price of BP the last two times he said "Buy." it would at least credibility to the data. I continue to be amazed that SA allows these guys to repeatedly say "buy" without mentioning their previous (often numerous) miscalls.
