    How are we interpreting today's upgrade?

    Perfect response, Inlet. You are good! Thank you for your response to him. I agree. No need to respond on this issue again. It's been stated now.

    • yeah well, i was asking why you like the stock, inlet's listed his reasons plenty of times.

      i like the stock b/c of the yield, however, i must bring into question whether its safe. my plan is to buy at the money puts early dec to shield myself against any negative news regarding the divvy.

      why do i think the divvy may not be safe? well, b/c they arent making as much money as they were. its a logical argument even if it is simple. also there are headwinds from the govt against paying divvys.

      id love to look at the balance sheet and see why its great, but i was serious when i said i wouldnt be able to interpret it. so, since you say the balance sheet is great, well im asking why you think its great. maybe you read an analyst opinion somewhere who says its great, thats fine. maybe you think the balance sheet is great because inlet does. or, maybe youre an accountant and really know your stuff. so sorry i asked why.

      like i said, im not a basher, just curious.
