    Navios Maritime Partners L.P. ("Navios Partners") (NYSE: NMM), an international owner and operator of drybulk and container vessels, today reported its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015.

    Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Navios Partners, stated, "I am pleased to announce our results for the quarter. We recorded revenue of $56.5 million, reported $38.7 million of EBITDA and earned $11.4 million of net income. We also announced a quarterly distribution of $0.4425, representing an annual distribution of $1.77 per unit. This annual distribution provides a current yield of about 16.6% about 2.5 times the yield on the Alerian MLP Index."

    Angeliki Frangou continued, "In 2013, Navios Partners diversified into the container segment, which today represents about 45% of 2015 EBITDA. However, Navios Partners continues to have material exposure to dry bulk through its 23 dry bulk vessels. We do not believe that the historically low rate environment of the first quarter of 2015 likely will be repeated soon. Indeed, since the first quarter, the BDI has improved by more than 100%, with Capesize spot rates significantly higher. Thus, we expect our dry bulk investments to provide material upside in an improving

    guys...I added more FRO today...I said I was going to pile up some cash before a possible Bloody October, but I could not help myself, lol...the fact is, it is starting to look like we may have 'a Mini-Rally going' at this time...! SFL (yield about 10.5%) and BDCL (yield about 21.3%) are running strong, but I will not add, as I already own enough of them...! Stagg...!

    Board members...we have a nice market snap-back going today and I am glad for that...but we are still a long way from any type of a market rally...the over-all markets are always looking for reason to go up or down and lately the markets seem to find more reasons to go down...! No doom or gloom here, just some conservative thinking (I still like FRO, NMM, UVE, WMC and NRZ at this share price level)...! Stagg...!

    Total est oil at $48 to $55 for the rest of the year.(Brent). This implies $43 to $45 for WTI.

  • ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP): Cramer likes the stock as it yields 6%. He suggested waiting as oil can head lower to $43. The company is good and it should be bought when oil bottoms at $43.
    Just saying

    Mark,
    For obvious reasons I have been reviewing my strategy to stand pat and rely on the strength of my dividend shares to weather the storm. First and foremost, I need the dividend income and don't feel I can convert, say, 30% of my holdings to cash and take a 30% hit to my dividend income without being sure how I would make up the lost income or how I would reinvest the money if, when and for how long the bear market were to continue.

    For my own benefit and to put this into perspective, I looked at the dividend picture of the 34 stocks in my portfolio over the last 12 months.......
    One stock cut its dividend. It now yields 22.28%.
    13 stocks have paid the same dividend for the last 4 qtrs. Average yield = 12.05%
    10 stocks increased their dividend one or more times. Average yield = 7.55%
    10 stocks increased their dividend every quarter. Average yield = 6.25%

    So, while the principal may suffer, hopefully only in the shorter term, I can maintain and quite possibly increase my income by not selling the underlying shares. FWIW, that's one person's plan. Time will tell.

    Stagg, I think we could still get a late summer rally (we still have all of August and some September's have been good). That's why we have to try to make sense of the technical factors, although one can't really know what is going on in China and with all of the ETF funds selling.

    kbon, a good topic, probably for its own post. In general, high yield stocks have somewhat more risk for short raids because the companies generally pay out a large part of their cashflow as dividends and also fund their businesses with large amounts of credit, so they don't have a lot of cash to buy back large amounts of stock. They also have lots of retail investors to get spooked either with panic or stop losses. Further, as a high yield stock declines, that makes it more expensive to fund acquisitions since most high yield companies use a combo of debt and equity. Many of the high yield companies are dependent on acquiring new assets (or in the case of e&p firms) replacing reserves, so they need to be able to borrow and issue equity to keep the treadmill running.

    sarge...SFL is still a core holding as is NMM...I never did own GLOP or NTI (and probably never will)...however, I have started new positions in FRO and UVE (and UVE is doing fine)...! My crops look great (yield wise) but the current prices of corn and soybeans are in the dumps...! It looks like 'poor oil prices' are dragging everything else down with it...! Stagg...!
