    LMH, T' s comments do not read that way to me. Rather, they express the logical ripple approach of what can happen with a worsening of the credit markets. Energy relatated contractions are only the tip of the spear. Free enterprise has been suffering around the world with continuing governmental restraints and limitations on free market economies. The credit market reacts to these occurences. T may not be able to give a detailed explanation of his concerns ,but I respect his experience and instincts. I am an income growth investor and things are simply not right and to me go beyond normal adjustments. I share his concerns and am watching things very carefully. Happy New Year to all.

  • OSHC Owners Forum [View instapost]
    OSHC filed a Form 8-K on Dec. 12, 2014, advising as to an amended employment agreement with its president revising the Change of Control definition to give him tax options in connection with any change of control. Hopefully, this is a precursor of good things next year. Happy and Prosperous New Years to all!

  • Nordea Bank: Bought 100 NRBAY At $11.56 [View instapost]
    Thanks for posting. I have also purchased some of the Petroquest bonds. Hopefully, the interest will continue to be paid, as well as the principal. A lot can happen in a few years, including the possibility of a buyout. I share your diversity approach. The high yield bonds are like herding cats. Happy and Prosperous New Year to you.

  • Best Long Idea For 2015: BNCCORP [View article]
    Some of these folks would have you return your Santa Claus suit for one of the Pied Piper's. I say Humbug to them. Who says you close the books on a good idea at the end of each year? These folks have obviously forgotten about OBAF and a host of other gifts from you. Let them pay some other guru to blame forr their dissatification. I guess they also think all shares of OSHC shoul d be immediately sold. Please keep the good ideas coming and ignore the noise.
