You would be smart to pay attention to all the negative thumbs. But you discount them and describe those who disagree with you as "freaks" and chide people for calling you an idiot, but then you tell people to go to "heell." Your immaturity is showing.
Why not just sell all of your RSO and move on? If you wouldn't invest in RSO now then why keep it? Buy RAS or something else. It makes absolutely no sense at all to continue to hold a stock you do not believe is going to do well and you believe other stocks will outperform it. No sense at all. But, it's your money. Forrest's mama was right.... "stupid is as stupid does."
No, it tells you what an idiot you are in your posts. Most of the people on this board have some sense, some experience investing and a brain on their shoulders. You just whine and spew nonsense. It isn't "sentimental" - it is sensible. You should ask more questions and try and learn from the people here. That would be the smart thing to do. Instead you just shoot your mouth off with #$%$.
No, it just points out how foolish you are for posting such comments with little evidence of reason or evidence for your claims. You really ought to pay attention to what others are saying and how they rate your posts. You demonstrate very little evidence of being able to think about investments with any kind of thoughtful analysis. When someone, like me, calls you on it then you start spewing your baloney and attack the person questioning your claims. In other words, grow up!
So, what is your point?
One stock does better for a while than another, so what?. SFI and SHO, as well as hundreds of other stocks, have also out preformed RSO in price appreciation over the past three years. However, when dividends are considered along with gains in pps, RSO has done quite well. I found long ago, that comparing what one company did or did not do to other companies is a no win game. What matters to me is how they preform going forward on a total return, risk adjusted basis. RSO fits my criteria; RAS does not. RAS, "burned" the common stock holders once, so shame on them. For that reason, I do not have confidence in RAS management and have invested correspondingly. I look for value, which RSO definitely has at these prices, and invest accordingly. It doesn't mean that I am an all or nothing investor. I diversify, but RAS is not, nor can I see a time where it will ever be, part of that diversification. If someone wants to find reasons to invest or not to invest in a particular company, they can, and I respect that decision even if it is different than mine. But I do not respect someone who chooses to criticize another's reasons for investing or for not investing in a particular stock. Nor do I believe that name calling is either constructive or conducive to open discussion.
