    SFL ON THE MOVE....................

    Last May I looked for SFL to hit $25 by year end. Well suffice it to say, we got stuck in a trading range of $17.50 to $20 plus for the last 4 months and it appeared we would not hit $25 by Dec. 31. It now looks like we've got a good chance to make it what with most commodities going higher and oil in the $82/barrel range.

    Providing we hit that magical $25 figure, you can rest assured those dividends will keep going up as well and next year should see us back at the highs of pre-2008, around $32.

    I truly believe SFL has caught the attention of savvy personal investors as well as the institutional houses.

      Hearty, har, har, har. Look whose calling the kettle black. sid66 has not responded to my last post exposing her risky trading habits nor informing the board of her latest risky naked option position and lo and behold out of the woodwork comes lakeed to her rescue calling this type of gambling an investment strategy.
      Hmmm, coincidence??? Yuk Yuk

    • B-man...Thanks for a very interesting easy to read message...! You and I invest a lot the same but also different...! It looks like you and I are the only investors that ever admit to losing money on this message board...! For the record, I am not G-facts or anybody else on any message board...! I always try to be honest....if I always tell the truth I don't have to worry about what I may have said in the past...! About dividends...A big drop in a dividend is a warning sign (most of the time)...! A nice increase in a dividend can also be a warning sign because the company may be trying to pump up the stock before a new stock offering (which will drop the price of the stock)...! Good luck to all...!

      I think you and stagg are the same person . I believe your last two post prove it.
      Have a nice day"...

      You continue to show your lack of concentration. NAKED OPTION TRADING IS ONLY FOR PROFESSIONALS AS THEY ARE HIGHLY RISKY AND VOLATILE AND EVEN THEY SELDOM WIN. This in no way is an investment strategy. And the more you persist in saying it is, only proves my point that your knowledge of investing is very shallow.

    • Lots of people have different philosophies concerning the market. I prefer to have a group of core stocks that pay 6-10 percent dividends--these I monitor to make sure they continue to pay and or raise the dividend. A couple of years ago I sold one of my core stocks, GE, because they cut the dividend. Some of these stocks are SFL, DHT, CLMT, T, MO, PM, CINF,

      I also hold a few trading stocks that allows me to move in and out of them as they bounce up and down. These include ARR, CIM, NLY, ARTG, CLDA. I took a huge loss on Wachovia so I usually sell the MRITS before the dividend, take the profit then buy back once the stock moves down after the dividend announcement. I can use the profit against the loss I incurred with the bank stock and not have to pay the tax on the dividends.

      From time to time I buy and sell options. Sometimes I sell covered calls if I beieve the stock is trading sideways, sometimes I sell puts if I believe the stock is staying in a small trading range. I buy calls if I beleive the stock is on it's way up. Whenever, I make a decision on an option, I certainly do my DD as I would read a book on Blackjack if I were going to Vegas. Concerning options, I have taken several courses and read and continue to read about this type of strategy. One person may call option investing gambling, some people say investing in the market is gambling. Please be tolerant of others who invest differntly than you.

      All of these tools are part my investment plan. I don't make a killing, but I have been able to supplement my income.

      Good luck to all no matter which way you invest in the market.

      Uninformed, jokers like you are a dime a dozen on message boards and unfortunetly have to be tolerated. However, not having your FACTS STRAIGHT doesn't mean you get a free ride here with your nonsense.

      ..."Mr.stagg I am not a clone of anyone.You don't need to welcome me to the SFL board as this board belongs to us all.FYI I monitor it all the time along with other boards."...

      It appears you not only don't know what you're talking about but you must have a problem with dementia. "Mr stag didn't accuse you of being a clone of sid's, I did. And Mr. stagg didn't welcome you to this board, I did. So, if you're going to post here, doofus, at least get your FACTS STRAIGHT. Yuk Yuk.

      Get the facts,did everything he could to belittle someone else's investment strategy. He clearly hasn't a clue as to how JF manages his companies."...

      Stick with something you know, if that's possible. What you call criticizing sid is imperitive and called for since the board shouldn't be fooled into believing playing naked options is a safe and intelligent way to invest.

      Since we're on the subject of investing, you show your total ignorance by saying "Get the facts,did everything he could to belittle someone else's investment strategy." This is not an "investment strategy", doofus, it's called gambling. I suppose if you go to Vegas and plunk down $1000 on the dice table, this would be called a smart investment and sid has to the same thing which is to plunk down $1000 for every $1 she gambles on naked options. If you think this is intelligent investing, I've got a bridge I can sell you cheap for a $1000. Yuk Yuk
