    Folks who say past performance may not be an indication of future performance must never have heard of the Buffetts - Warren and Jimmy. Happy 4th of July to all and remember the sacrifices of those who have enabled us be free.

  • How To Be Sure You Won't End Up Eating Cat Food In Your Retirement [View article]
    BB, my comment was addressed to the author since his rate of return is on the low side in my view. There are some folks who can do better on their own, but most of them do not have that skill. I do not fix my own teeth, repair my own car, or have any clue how to keep my computer going.

    Its not what you make, but what you keep. The author appears to have firgured this one out pretty well, but needs to raise the annual return in my view.

    In my view, 3.5 % is far too low a rate to earn on a million dollar portfolio. I would seek some professional assistance to bolster the annual return , thereby lowering the amont of principal needed to support a nice retirement. Thanks

  • Merger Arbitrage Forum (PART 2) [View instapost]
    I am in the same boat and do not want to add to my small position. After I made my inital purchase, I was reminded that Staples' use of part time employees created a small firestorm regarding the merits of the ACA.

  • Marketplace Interview: Chris DeMuth Jr. - Sifting The World Continues To Hit Home Runs [View article]
    Foxgary, Chris is being very modest about the opportunities that have been presented on his new service. I have been a member since the first day,starting just a few months ago. He has presented multiple actionable ideas for members to evaluate and consider. I have taken advantage of several of them for excellent gains. Additionally, Chris has presented ideas from other sources and members for consideration. I use both Fidelity and Schwab, as well as others brokers, and have never had any difficulty with executions. I recommend that you give it a try. As always, everyone trades at their own risk.

    Tack, I have also been harvesting some of the lower hanging E&P fruit in which I have good gains in my tax exempt or tax deferred accounts. You have a good ability to see futher down the road in higher yield issues. However, I thing it may take the market a little longer to react consistent with your theory and am hanging on a little longer to garner some more income in this area. I have redeployed some gains into other nonenergy issues such as Lantheus Medical Imaging, Mcclatchy Co, Taseko Mines, and Scientific Games. How do you intend to replace your sold E & P issues? Thanks.

  • Seeking Alpha On Day 2 [View article]
    I read your article with fond memories. Years ago, I would routinely trip to Circuit City stores to collect the 110% difference cash. I also regularly used the zero percent rate offers to invest the money and pay the advances back as slowly as allowed. In Md., its Savings and Loans offered an "in by the tenth, paid from the first interest" accounts. That feature allowed me to earn interest at two different institutions at the same time. I was very busy shuffling money around on the 10th of the month.

  • An 11.2% Yield From A Diversified Shipping Company: Navios Maritime Holdings Preferred [View article]
    Maturity means something to me. I prefer shorter maturities in the higher risk areas. Buying further out in time creates a risk for the period in time beyond the earlier maturity. Lenders abhor defaults and sometimes will make accomodations for the shorter periods. However, to each his own when it relares to risk.

    P, that is why I prefer the bond to the preferreds. The company cannot pay dividends on the common and preferred unless the interest is first paid on the bond.

  • First Mountain Bank: Potential 20% Upside In An Imminent Deal [View article]
    Thanks. I wonder if its desire to be sold will effect its sales price adversely. Even if that is the case, there is still a good margin of possible profit.

  • First Mountain Bank: Potential 20% Upside In An Imminent Deal [View article]
    Thanks for your article. It appears that this bank really does want to sell itself. Do you know the proposed per share selling price it reached last year with the unsucessful purchase by the First National Bank of California?
