    Chris, thanks for your alert on SfW last week on the HCBK merger. Quick action on this limited risk idea has produced an outstanding return for me.

  • NorthStar: Is A 9% Yield Better Than A 13% Yield? [View article]
    This is not even a close call for me. I want regular income and the Preferred Cs fit that bill. No dividends can be paid on the common unless and until the preferreds are paid first. Thanks for covering an old favorite.

  • Roll Into 7%-Plus Yields With Accuride Bonds, Rated B3/B- And Callable, Maturing August 2018 [View article]
    Randy, thanks for your article. I own this bond which is not callable at par until 8/1/2016. I do not think the company will be in a position to do a call before its maturity date in 2018. I am willing to take that risk considering its status and the bond rate. It could be bought today from Fidelity for under 102.

    Airlarr, Chris already has an excellent niche known as Sifting the World on SA. Members not only obtain the best thoughts and ideas Chris has, but also benefit from some of the sharpest minds I have read on this site. Use of StW with an individual's own perspective and judgment can really step up the game. To paraphrase Al Jolson, if you simply read Chris' public articles, "You ain't seen nothing yet."

  • 30% Underpriced? How Is The Market So Wrong About ChipMOS? [View article]
    Vicad,what chart are you looking at to see a plateau? The ones I see show the price fluctuating up and down a little. I am in for the longer haul in this one. Thanks.

    Chris, I view OSHC as a tortoise that will eventually be a big winner. Its Tangible Book Value moves up nicely and I do not worry about my investment as much as other ones outside the financial sector. However, I also would like this one to move along. How about a nice new high paying job for the CEO with the acquirer? As for CRWN, I own it and it has done great so far. How much of a premium do you think it would command from its current level? Thanks.

  • Is Office Depot A Buy As A Merger Arbitrage Opportunity? [View article]
    There was a very heated exchange much earlier this year between the administration and Staples regarding the ACA. Staples did not back down. I won't risk my money betting that the FTC will approve this deal. I love M and A opportunities, but will pass on this one. I look forward to your next articles. Thanks.
