Personally, first and foremost, I believe that one purchases management rather than a company. As such, their trustworthiness, transparency, vision, focus, timing and execution are the hallmarks of major interest to me.
I would note that I am also a buy and hold income stream investor and am investigating NTE for its possibility to return to yields of past years while adding a sector to my folio that's currently not represented.
Your comment "I have faith in NTE's management. They are EXTREMELY conservative, own a lot of the company, and run it for the benefit of the shareholders. If any management team can make it work NTE will." is very helpful in quantifying (your opinion) management for me.
Since I am currently oversized in 2 positions and slightly on margin ... I would not be opening a position ATM ... since the meltdown of a couple years ago, I attempt to stay fully invested but flat at all times.
I will continue to monitor this board for its high quality comments with a future hope to take a partial position once my oversized holding sells are executed.
