    • stagg, am I going to have to play Dr. Laura with you and Susan? O'K. Susan, Stagg is fixated on you. Susan, you are clearly excentric. Now, can fixated match up with excentric? How can you be fixated and excentric at the same time? Crud, I'm calling Dr. Laura. JKP

    • making....wanted to take advantage of the $10 "free moeny" automatically put onto our players club card for today only, and planned my gambling outing early in the day so that i could get back home before the storm hit in a bigger way.

    • A-date...You are not being fair with Susan....she said that there was a bad storm coming...if the casino lost power to the storm, she would not be able to go later on in the day...!

    • ..."holding...I will stay with my current strategy on VLCCF taking profits ever so often and then either deploying my assets into other holdings, and/or re-enter VLCCF position if the stock retreats. Having terrible weather here today with high winds, rain and overcast skies. Went tot the local casino very early this morning at 6 o'clock this morning and had a lucky streak.....came back with a $40 gain after playing for about 15 minutes and then stoked up the computer and enjoying watching my VLCCF perform. Hope you are just as happy today."...

      Ha, the risk loving gambler even carries her propensity to gamble to the casinos.

      I REST MY CASE!!

    • Board members...While it is true that VLCCF may have a slight edge on SFL on the last six months of the charts vs two years; there is a bit more to the story: Profit margin, SFL 26% vs VLCCF 14%...Operating margin, SFL 67% vs VLCCF 40%...Return on equity, SFL 26% vs VLCCF 14%...P/E ratio, SFL 7.7 vs VLCCF 10.2....These stats. tell a different story...! I do like the dividend better on VLCCF than SFL but they may have trouble holding it at its current level...! VLCCF is a good holding for a risky gambler...but not for a locksmith like myself...! Good luck to all...!

      • earned 48 cents and VLCCF earned 53 cents, so VLCCF should be trading at a price about 10% higher than SFL (their earnings are 10% higher) which is about where it currently trades. All that being said, I am pleased having closed some VLCCF positions on Tuesday as posted earlier and opened positions in other stocks which are currently offering a higher put premium. As stated before, both companies are fine, just own the one you feel most comfortable with

      • to come up with your P E ratios etc.. If SFL has a P E ratio of about 7.7 that would mean they are earning about $2.50 per year or 62 cents per quarter which they are not doing...As for VLCCF you claim the P E ratio is 10.2 which means they are only earning $2 annually or 50 cents quarterly....they made more than that in the last quarter....earnings have been rising for VLCCF and falling for SFL. Have a nice evening

    • I think the real problem is ANYONE that would take the time ( especially 6am) to go to the trouble of making a trip to wager only 5 bucks. You in love with the dealer or something? Sounds coo-coo to me even if you did it once a year. JKP

    • there ONCE A MONTH and allow myself the 'addiction' of risking $5 bucks. Reason for going so early this morning was that the winds were projected to begin here around 7 oclock so I wanted to be home safely by then....Thank you for you sincere concern about my welfare but with all due respect you should learn to consider the entire set of fact before you make such a fool of yourself and state that someone who wagers $5 monthly and does so in such a fashtion as to not interfere with here working hours has a problem. YOU SIR ARE THE ONE WITH A PROBLEM

    • they give you $10 of free slot machine play. I also put in the huge (Problematic???) sum of $5 of my own money...After 15minutes of play I had $40.02 on my 2 cent per play machine for a profit of $35.02.........sorry you are having a bad day with SFL and perhaps that is why you just to ignorant and ridiculous conclusions. Looks like SFL is closing now only pennies off the low of the day.

    • 6am at the casino? Lady, you must have a problem. You come off sounding like the guys hanging around at 6am for the liquor store to open. JKP

    • holding...I will stay with my current strategy on VLCCF taking profits ever so often and then either deploying my assets into other holdings, and/or re-enter VLCCF position if the stock retreats. Having terrible weather here today with high winds, rain and overcast skies.
