  • Overdone Sell-Off In DFC Global [View article]
    Anyone have an opinion on the outstanding bond which is yielding over 11%, trading a couple of points below par and due in 2016 which is quite short term. If the viability of the company is good, then the bond should be a no brainer imo. Any thoughts on this one?

  • Target Sighted As An Opportunity To Rebound From Bad Breaks [View article]
    I like Target over Walmart any day. I will wait for the earnings report and look to establish a position shortly thereafter.

  • Seadrill: Why This Stock Is Undervalued And Should Be Owned By Every Investor [View article]
    Markets telling us that $SDRL is in for bad news. Dropped another 5% already today. Talk about a falling knife? What good is a 10% dividend when the stock price continues to slide more, wiping out the value of the dividend. There is no bottom in sight as the stock continues to power through support levels.

  • Conservative Bond Strategy Returning 12% Annually And 3.5% Maximum Drawdown [View article]
    Thanks for the great article which has definitely caught my interest. Just for clarification purposes, can you please specify the formula you use for the ratio of the two indices? I just want to make sure I have this correct so I can backtest in my own platform. Thanks again for the great information.

  • RadioShack: Forget The Stock, Shack Up With The Bond! [View article]
    To make an investment in a dying business model is just plain wrong. $RSH amazes me that it is still in business, but my gut tells me it will not be for long as they have no innovation, no proprietary products, and no services that make them a stand-out in any way. I invest a lot in HY bonds, but have purposely stayed away from these bonds and will continue to do so.

  • Avoid Nyrstar's Shares, But The Bonds Look Very Interesting Right Now [View article]
    Thanks for the insightful breakdown. I have been watching these bonds closely so your article was timed perfectly. One question, where in the U.S. are you able to trade these Euro bonds as most broker dealers only handle U.S. $ bonds for standard accounts. Can you guide me in the right direction? Thanks.

  • Euro dives, stocks lift after surprise ECB rate cut [View news story]
    Was no surprise to me. All my Euro buddies knew the rate cut was coming. I closed my long EUR/USD trade two days ago after a small profit. This was very telegraphed as noted by the big fall in the Euro from 1.38 levels to pre-rate cut levels of 1.34/1.35. The charts told everyone what was coming.

  • Are Investors Right To Panic About Exide Technologies? [View article]
    I purchased the 2018 Exide bonds this week as I too believe bankruptcy is not in the near term cards. Once they get beyond the September hurdles the 2018 bonds should see a nice recovery. Exide is a solid company with a good restructuring plan well under way in my opinion. That being said, I would not bet the farm. I purchased 10,000 nominal amount of the bonds for approximately $7,500 and monitoring closely.

  • More on jobless claims: The four-week moving average drops to 346.8K, another post-recession low for the key labor indicator. The last time at this level was March 2008. S&P futures gain a bit, now +0.3%. Nasdaq 100 +0.4%[View news story]
    These numbers are so generic and misleading at times. I have several tenants in different locations that continue to feel the pressures of a weak economy. Maybe some larger cities are feeling less pain, but at the end of the day we are far from being healed in my opinion. As much as I need Wall St in order to make a living, I would prefer numbers and statistics that truly show the reality of Main St, not just what is convenient for Wall Streeters to make their bullish case. America is still in pain, but so many seem to forget that.

  • Stocks: Did A New Bull Market Begin On Monday? [View article]
    On 11/6, election day, the $SPX S&P-500 closed at 1428.39. We are still below the 1400 level, trading at 1390 as I write. We have not regained all the losses since the election to be clear. That being said there is no true justification for the rally on Monday as stocks were bought based on rhetoric supported by no action at all. Democrats and Republicans have only agreed to continue discussions, but no real talking points that have any positive consequence have been agreed upon. Democrats still insist on tax increases via raising the top rates for the wealthy and Republicans still say that will not be acceptable. Democrats accept revenue is on the table, but insist tax rates must go up. Republicans propose revenue increases in other ways, but still insist no tax increases at no level. Where have things changed? Yes, they have not. Stocks are being purchased on light volume day after day which means the big boys are not playing yet. When the big boys get back in the game, so will I. Until then I do not want to be the lab rat for our government. Also, as per your chart of the $SPX, trend lines can always be drawn to fit a case, however when you draw a trend line, please make sure to encompass all price movement, which will then show you that there was a significant break of trend to the downside.

  • Friday Options Recap [View article]
    Someone tweeted that the $CAH calls were a lottery ticket awaiting approval for a new contract that they supposedly had a less than 20% chance of getting. I stayed away as I prefer to trade on more fundamentals and less lottery.
