    Just Wondering/For Paul

    It's good to see someone mention Doral Financial. I started buying at $27 and still
    have it. What a great company and super
    earnings record. I'll look into pfi and sfbi.
    Thanks. Are you familiar with iStar Financial?
    Symbol is SFI. Has been great for me with a
    7% dividend. Good luck.

      Niche is important. That is one of the attractions of CCBI, which just broke $20 per share. If it closes above $20 today, that will be an important milestone.

      • fill in the blank - Roth Capital Partners Conference earlier this year. I have been invested for some time in another small company that presented there and thought that it might be a good way to find some more good ideas - bingo. There were four or five that cropped up on my technical screens. I was stopped out of one of them, unfortunately, but loss prevention is important.

    • Thanks for your post to Paul.

      In a different industry, AT has provided increased annual dividends, plus growth, for more than 30 years. The price of their stock is depressed, returning in the neighborhood of 7 percent. The company is solid.
      Good wishes and good investing.
