  • Microsoft: Windows 10 And Edge Browser Are Very Advertiser-Friendly [View article]
    A browser without ad blocking will do poorly. Expect most Win 10 users to use Firefox or Chrome.

    How do you explain MAIN's performance? Are you are trader of PSEC or a long term investor?

    PSECs divvy in 2010 was .10/month. Now it's .083/month. How do you defend that?

  • Stocks stumble to session lows [View news story]
    Very good observation. This pattern can't last forever. Money's gotta go somewhere and cash ain't going to be it for long.

  • Premarket Biotech Digest: My Investment Strategy, Geron Updates, Regeneron Earnings [View article]
    I think the market is trying to price in a secondary based upon Scarlett's comments on the cc.

    I would not be a buyer until there is some clarity on this.... if ever. GERN is slowly transitioning from an IMET story to something else which is yet to be determined.

  • Just What The Doctor Ordered: Durable Dividends [View article]
    Dirk, Steve and Arimnestos

    Thanks for the reply. I "get" the rationale for owning DOC as diversification in healthcare eREITs. Perhaps that will help you if the government cuts re-imbursement to SNFs.... but maybe it won't. IMO, if the government is going to cut re-imbursement to providers they won't stop at SNFs, everyone will see a haircut.

    I also own O which I feel is a better shelter against changes in healthcare provider re-imbursement.

    I appreciate Mr Thomas' work and analysis of eRIETs. Having said that, this seems like a reach to me. Why should I buy this instead of OHI? Seems like there are better alternatives to DOC for investors that desire steady income with moderate risk.

  • Valero Energy: Not The Value Stock It Seems To Be [View article]
    Back in the old days cyclical stocks were traded as follows: buy when PE is high (trough earnings) and sell when PE is low (peak earnings).

    It seems like that trading philosophy has gone by the wayside as economic cycles have gotten longer but probably makes sense here.

  • Gastar Exploration: Why Has The Stock Declined? [View article]
    If GST can survive they should be well positioned when nat gas and oil prices rebound. But they need to survive.

    It takes buyers AND sellers to make a market. If you don't understand the concept or cannot accept it you should not invest in the stock market.

    If it hurts your feeling every time some one writes negative views on stocks you own, stay off the internet and avoid the stock market.

    Is your skin really that thin?

    Just sell all of your individual stocks, go to the bank and invest in CDs. People who have such a cavalier attitude towards their investment capital deserve to loose it all and likely will.

  • Prospect Capital: Company Repurchases Stock [View article]
    "What has me puzzled is why they bought back ("called") $100 million of senior notes carrying 6.95% interest callable on 5/15/2015 but not due until 2022."

    You can always slash the divy.

    I don't understand your position. Are you saying that since no one can correctly time the market, companies shouldn't buy back shares? Or that since the market can't be timed no one should invest in stocks?

    Yeah, it's funny how people react positively when management does the right thing that shareholders have *begged* for.

    Who'd have thunk it?
