20yrs in mortgage trading at several big shops followed by switch to buy side last 10yrs. Now a macro events equity oriented carry trader in high cash payout plays and when to get in/out . Focus on retail oriented small caps such as mortgage REITs , closed end funds , energy trusts , preferred stocks and most any investment with high cash payouts linked more to macro events like rates , commodities , credit markets , etc . My core back ground is the bond business

Disclosure: I/we have a beneficial long position in the shares of SJT either through stock ownership, options, or other derivatives. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from Seeking Alpha). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Additional disclosure: SJT is my number 1 position at this time.
