    If you want a break from all of the finance reading, try " A Line in the Sand" by one of Great Britian's best thriller authors, Gerald Seymour.

  • Chris DeMuth, Jr. Positions For 2015: Banking M&A, Milestone Payments, Litigation Results [View article]
    I will stick with RVP as my litigation appreciation play. Easier to collect from BDX than a foreign country. It is extremely time consuming and expensive to collect from a soverign government. One of my former law partners used to say that he could wallpaper his living room with uncollected judgements. Too much Bleak House and politics in trying to obtain real money. Remember the years spent in trying to make Libya and Iran honor awards. Good Luck to all.

    Thanks for the update. When I read the headline, I thought the comment was about ORB.

  • Bought 2 Vanguard Natural Resources 7.875% Senior Unsecured Bonds Maturing 4/1/20 At 86.59 [View article]
    Thanks for your post. I am with you on this one. I also agree that the bond is a much better choice than the preferred issues. Additionally, I like the way you present the current yield, as well as the YTM. With these types of issues, I look for at least a current yield of at least 9%. I do not want most of the gain at the end of the term of these types of issues. Earlier interest mitigates the amount of loss if there is a problem at maturity.

  • A Safe 10.6% Yield From A Shipping Issue: GSL Preferred Stock [View article]
    My portfolio has lots of preferred issues and I will look into your suggestion further. Thanks for your article about it. However,I must say that in my view the words "safe" and "10.6% yield" do not belong in the same sentence.

    The good news on RVP continues. In denying the BDX stay request,the appeals court must not have thought much of the probability of success of its appeal. Otherwise, the court would have granted the stay of the injunction. As things currently stand, BDX must do something very quickly to avoid terrible consequences for its business.

    Sorry, about my incorrect reference to the click issue. I have never taken your comments as recommendations and appreciate your willingness to share your ideas with SA readers.

    If you do not trust the government to keep its hands off the Roth benefits in the future, how can you have confidence in the general tax rate? O has backed off of the 529 plan tax grab. I would stick to the Roth idea. Withdrawals from a Roth account do not count against SS taxability, or Medicare limits. There is no MRD requirement and accounts grow tax free without any tax on withdrawals. Roth is by far the best way to go in my view. Sure the rules can be changed but that is true about all taxes. Indeed, the country even has an Obamacare tax which we were all told was not a tax. Good luck to you and your family.

    This opportunity is akin to the one presented several years ago with beaten down preferreds. Current income with the possibility of appreciation. I have some bonds or notes issued by Halcon, Forbes,Linn, Northern Oil, Parker, Sandridge, and GDP. Can you share the names of any of the ones that interest you? In addition to having the lights on at the end, some of the other issues have the possibility of being purchased such as Penn Va. Thanks.
