    We have talked about this company before but I am still looking for thoughts. When I look at the company they have long term hedges in place to cover cash flow. They pay a monthly dividend. Appears to have smart aquisitions. However I would really like to purchase this stock in the low $20's. To get the dividend yield over 10%. Right now it makes more since to invest in PSEC (even though I already own alot of this). Thoughts should I balance my portfolio with VNR or go with PSEC?

    On a side note I am still trying to buy some puts on sfl before the report tommorrow. SFL has a history of selling off when it gets close to $18

      What a day PM is down 100 points---who knew

      Please diversify! Stagg is correct in his numbers! VNR shows up pretty strong But be careful of chasing yield is all
      I say.

      Look into F, GS, INTC, MRK LVS they are some lower divi payers and good chances to pop on any god news
      I do like oils--LNCO, ARLP APL BWP and NTI .
      Best of luck and I am fully invested now. I just bought UAN at $24.27 it is now 23.82 get some--I say


    • Yahoo, says there is a conference call today. SFL home page says it will be June 11.

      When is the X date for PSEC? I'm thinking of buying, but not sure of the date. Thanks.

      • B-man...the record date for the dividend on PSEC 'is usually between' the 28 and the 31 of the previous month of the payout...therefore, the ex-dividend date on PSEC would be about the 25 day of the previous month (day 24 to be safe)...i.e. the ex-dividend date would be about May 25 for a payout on about June 20....! $tagg...!

    • mud...I hold PSEC (yield about 12.1%) and SFL (yield about 9%) but not VNR (yield about 8.3%)...if we run several compare charts 'on all three' VNR is the clear cut winner 'on almost' every chart (2 year, 5 year, max chart and even the YTD chart) except the one year and six month chart with SFL...

      My opinion is, that the future of oil and natural gas 'is uncertain' because of the success of fracking (the law of supply and demand and the high cost to produce the product)....however, VNR has an 'outstanding long term history' and will probably 'not disappoint'...! $tagg...!
