  • Best Ways To Invest -- What's Your Opinion? A Place To Share Ideas! #73 [View instapost]
    Thats why I own the 2019s. Plus the increased front end money gets to earn more interest. I tend to use it for purchases of other issues to increase diversification. Sometimes good companies aren't, and lousy ones surprise you or get bought. Thanks for bringing up the topic.

  • Thompson Creek: At All-Time Lows, Still Not A Buy [View article]
    No warts, no great returns. One of the secrets to high yield is diversification. Participating in these issues is like herding cats.

  • SandRidge Energy Preferred Convertible: A 21% Yield Paid In Shares Of SD Common [View article]
    I also hold a large number of these bonds. Some of them may turn out to be dead bodies, but they also may resurrect. I have been doing some Roth conversions in kind. The transactions are taxed at the FMV of the bonds on the date of the transfer. However, the carried interest passes from the IRA to the Roth tax free. The resulting tax on the transaction, less the carried interest,could be modest compared to the future interest and payment of principal for any bonds which resurrect.

    Only non-taxable Roth withdrawals do not count.

  • Bought 2 Gastar Exploration 8.625% Senior Secured Bonds Maturing In May 2018 [View article]
    Robbink, for what its worth, I have a few of these bonds as part of a diversified energy group. SG preaches about the need to have a diversifed approach and I am part of the choir. I am up a little on the bond. Good luck to you.

  • How To Save $1,000/Year Without Any Risk* [View instapost]
    I disagree that one needs to be rich to subscribe. $2.75 per day won't even buy a latte or a pack of cigarettes. Investors need to weigh cost versus value. In this case, to me, the answer is a no brainer. Thanks.

    I do not want that illusory "savings". I am an O's fan ( and Ravens) . I have loved and profited from your O picks such as OBAF, OA, and the coiled spring OSHC, as well as several others. Cost should never be confused with value. I am setting my alarm early for Monday morning.Thanks.

    SA is full of commentators who have paid advisory services. I would rather pay for excellent advice. To each his own.
