Yes, I wrote post # 634 myself. I'm trying to
decide if financial humor is worth the effort.
certainly not easy. The audience is rather limited! In
order to post it, I had to drop the
(which to me is the funniest part) and a few other
things including the formatting, so if any of you would
like a copy of the real deal, send me an email
firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send it to you as an attachment. (It's a
Word document.) #634
is the second of three SSA
newsletters I've written, so if you'd like copies of the
other two, mention that and I'll deliver. Thanks for
the kind words, Mellow.
By the way, I don't own
HCN common, though I expect to soon. I have a bit of
preferred B. Gee, remember when anybody would've killed for
a consistent 15% return?
I bought more yesterday at $15 1/16 and today at
$14 15/16. Excluding possibly some more next Monday
if it stays down, I am probably about finished
accumulating. That also excludes the reinvestment of the
dividends when they are received which will be plowed back
in if it stays low.
Nice to meet you, Mellow.
I miss the BRK
board - so many good ideas there - like HCN.
placed an after market trade order in for 200 shares of
HCN - nearly at beginning of the session. So far, no
interest at all from sellers. I get the idea that
aftermarket trading is for the internets. Oh, well. There's
always regular hours.
I bought some BRK last week
and plan to buy more after the new year. It looks to
me like a better long-term buy than HCN, but HCN
seems to me to have a much bigger margin of safety. Out
of favor for being a REIT and out of favor for being
a health-care stock. "Mr. Market" is offering some
great values at discount here. I also like HR, which
has slightly lower yield but much higher rate of
growth and even lower debt ratio. What do you think?
