  • 3 Sectors To Watch In The Second Half Of 2015 [View article]
    This is a great article, David. I hold healthcare stocks (XLV), (BIB), and (XBI). I agree with you that healthcare is a good sector to buy on pullbacks.

  • The Rockefeller REITs, The Ones That Pay Monthly [View article]
    Thanks Brad for a great article on monthly dividend paying stocks. I own Armour Residential (ARR) myself, and it seems to be stable now in the low $4 price area along with paying 5 cents each month for the dividend.

  • Halloween In June [View article]
    DNA -- No, I don't hold levered ETFs for long periods. When the conditions change or when I have made a substantial profit, I will sell the ETFs. I spend many hours each week studying the stock market and I am still learning. Keep up the good work on the articles!

  • Halloween In June [View article]
    Thanks DNA Decoder for a superb analysis of the stock market. I agree with you and David Tepper that the market is scary now. My largest holding is the long bond leveraged ETF, (TMF), which has gone from around $45 per share in January to $62 per share now.

  • Down Market Ahead? What Do Leveraged ETFs Tell Us? [View article]
    Thanks Peter for your outstanding article. Your 3x Dow ETF (UDOW) estimated price limits have been very helpful in this article and past articles. I am trading UDOW currently, and I believe buying the most popular ETFs at low points will very likely be a lot more profitable than just sitting in the S&P 500 ( this year.

  • What Is Relative Demand Telling Us About Stocks And The Economy? [View article]
    Thanks for another great article Chris. Your comparison charts of the S&P 500 versus bonds (AGG) is a great way to know whether we should be in or out of the stock market. I look forward to all your articles.

  • Mason Graphite: Graphene Revolution, Lithium-Ion Battery Growth, And China Supply Woes Offer A Compelling Opportunity [View article]
    Thanks for a great article on Mason Graphite (OTCQX:MGPHF). I think you are right that this is a multi-bagger stock although it may take a while to develop. I have worked in the electronics field all of my life, and I think graphene and graphite will be used extensively in future products as well as current ones like lithium-ion batteries.

  • Inovio CEO Interview: PD1/PDL1 Inhibitors, Immunotherapy And Why Investors Should Be Excited About 2014 [View article]
    Thanks to Mr. Mero and Dr. Kim for an outstanding article on Inovio (INO). I own the stock, and I plan to buy more after reading this article. As it has been mentioned, Dr. Kim's enthusiasm and expertise along with the Roche partnership should lead to a great 2014 for the stock. This is one of the few biotech stocks that I own, and I believe it can be a multi-bagger stock in the coming years.

  • 16% Loss Forecast For 2014 U.S. Stock Market [View article]
    I agree with Jake and Ronald. We are headed for lower returns in the future for the general stock market. Thanks for the formula and the tables Ronald. In view of probable lower returns, I am maintaining a lot of dividend stocks. Two of the best paying companies are Prospect Capital (PSEC) and Pioneer High Income Trust (PHT), paying over 11% and 9% respectively.

  • Inovio: All Signs Point Up [View article]
    Thanks Josh for a great article on Inovio (INO). I have owned the stock for quite a while and just bought more this past week. As a number of people have said, the Roche partnership makes Inovio a great biotech to hold.

  • Natural Gas Inventory Surplus Edges Up Despite Bullish Weather, Rig Count Back On The Rise [View article]
    I doubt there is much downside to natural gas right now, and we could have significant upside in the future when we start exporting natural gas. I am planning to buy Precision Drilling (PDS) to take advantage of rising rig counts.

  • 2 Small Miners To Consider Here [View article]
    Thanks Bret for a great article about Hecla (HL) and Endeavour (EXK). I especially liked your including the production costs of these miners. I plan to buy both of these stocks since I believe the price of silver can stay above $20 per ounce.

  • Update On GOFO - Factors That Will Spark A Big Move In Gold [View article]
    Thanks Dave for another great article highlighting gold's bottom. I certainly agree with you since GOFO is negative and because banks are going long on gold. I currently own Golden Star Resources (GSS) and a leveraged gold miner ETF (NUGT).

  • Northern Tier Energy: An Undervalued 22% Dividend Yielder [View article]

    I think you have a good idea about alternate strategies with Northern Tier (NTI) and Whiting (WHZ). I own both stocks, and I believe you are right about the up or down oil price effect on these stocks.

  • 10 Top Monthly-Pay Dogs Pursue 22.5% To 58.6% Net Gains For June [View article]
    Thanks Fredrik for a great article covering monthly dividend stocks and funds. I own some of the stocks and funds on your list like Armour Residential (ARR), Pioneer High Income (PHT), and Western Asset High Income (HIX). The only one I am really disappointed with is Armour Residential because the price has fallen so far in the past few months. I am hoping that we have a floor under REIT stocks now, but I don't know yet. The best plan is to have a large diversification in monthly dividend stocks. I think they are definitely worth it over the long term.
