    I just wanted to gage sentiment in light of the big drop in futures. Whoever got out at 29.90 looks pretty good right now.

      • American Capital, as of Sep 16, was trading at a pretty low trailing P/E ratio of 4.6, and a forward P/E ratio of 5.6. American Capital, is a real estate investment trust (REIT). Similar to other REITs, the company is utilizing the difference between long-term and short-term interest rates to maximize its profits. It pays a gorgeous dividend of 18.76%, while the profit margin (92.8%) crushes the industry average of 12.9%.Latest dividend declaration date was Sep. 14, where the stock will go ex-dividend on Sep. 21st.

        American Capital has an O-Metrix score of 19.96, and it is trading only 2.04% lower than its 52-week high. Target price is $31.16, which implies a 4.8% upside potential. The stock returned 1.8% in a year. Insider transactions have increased by 38.02% in the last six months, while sales rose by 423.29% this quarter. ROE and ROI are 18.30% and 17.90%, respectively. While SMA200 is 7.47%, SMA50 is 2.98%. P/E ratio, P/B (1.1), P/S (4.2), profit margin, ROE, are strong green flags. 11 out of 16 analysts recommend buying, and I agree with them.

        Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
