William...I still cannot get the old yahoo format...I am sending this message to you through my e-mail link (no joke)...a lot of the old crew is now on the AMNB message board at investor village...more, I can post messages on Yahoo SFL and AMNB message boards (but I don't think that you can read them because they are still on the new format, for me)...! All of this is a major mess...maybe tomorrow will be a better message board day (???)...! Stagg...!
William...I still cannot get the old format...I am sending this message to you by way of my e-mail (no joke)...it has not changed back for me on my P.C.,...! I have bad luck and I think that my ex-wife has something to do with it (???)...I even rebooted my P.C. to see if that would work (no luck yet)...! Stagg...!
William...if you can read this, yahoo has changed its format...however, some of us are still on the yahoo SFL and AMNB message boards and we are also posting messages on the investor village AMNB message board (everybody is worried as we don't want to lose an outstanding investor like you)...my personal e-mail is 'email@example.com' if you need to contact me about this...! Stagg...!
William...you need to start your own investment firm and start charging for your tips/information and yes, you are that good (no joke)...! Please keep up the good work as you are making a lot of investors some real nice profits...! Stagg...!
Board members...I don't have a Crystal Ball to the future, but my high yield holdings are doing wonderful...'compound returns always win' and the more we reinvest, 'the more we win'...the markets will sell-off at some point in time and sustainable revenue stream may help keep us in the game...! I still believe this is a stock pickers paradise and the best is yet to come (but not if we don't invest and reinvest)...we cannot make any money hiding in the safe house...! Stagg...!
bayman...its looks like both of us are doing great...a high yield stock don't have to go up much in value for us to have an outstanding Total Return...i.e. CEFL, PSEC, BDCL, NYMT and etc.,...I will probably take some more profit on BDCL and PSEC as they are out of balance with my other core holdings...! This is a high yield revenue stream month for me and I am looking forward to getting paid again (and today was wonderful)...! Stagg...!
sarge...this is starting to look like a Mid-Summer Rally (time will tell)...I am still doing fine and I have a lot more revenue coming this month...! This is still a stock picker paradise, 'for high yields and capital appreciation' (traders beware, lol)...! Stagg...!
bayman...I agree and I am almost fully invested at this time...myself, I have poor luck trying to time the markets (except for Bloody October) and I cannot make a decent profit without on-going revenue stream...! I plan to continue to use my revenue stream to pick up more bargains in the future...! Stagg...!
Board members...PSEC (yield about 12.5% and pays monthly) one of my core holdings, is now up 17.6% YTD in Total Returns...BDCL (yield about 19.7%) is now up 16.1% YTD in Total Returns, CEFL (yield about 21% and pays monthly) is now up 22.9% YTD in Total Returns and MORL (yield about.24.6% and pays monthly) is now up 23.4% YTD in Total Returns...! This is a wonderful day, in my high yield neighborhood and its always nice to keep getting paid...! Stagg...!
respectful...SFL's offshore revenue is 33% of their total and the average remaining contract length on the offshore revenue is 9.8 years (26% of the offshore revenue is from SDRL)...I don't have a Crystal Ball to the future, but it don't look like SDRL is at risk of going bankrupt at this time...! SFL has always focused on rapidly reducing financial leverage on its drilling rigs and has already paid down 50% of the aggregate loan amounts on them...! Stagg...!
gambler...this is an ugly day for me, investment wise and other wise...not only are most of my holdings down, I also have 'a lot more rain' on the way...it is so wet that I have water standing on the hill sides...I need to stop farming corn and soybeans and start plant rice, lol...! The only good news is, that I have a lot more revenue stream on the way, from my investments...! Stagg...!
William...FRO (yield now about 21.6%, if the yield does not get reduced in the future, ???) is not one of my core holdings, yet I have a heavy position in it...even though FRO is my ugly duck at this time, I still plan to add more shares (dollar cost average) after it stops falling in share price and levels off some...! That said, most of my other holdings 'are holding the line pretty good' and I have a lot more revenue stream on the way (soon)...! Stagg...!
Board members...my opinion is, that on investments 'in the shipping sectors' k-bon is among the best in his research and selections...! Stagg...!
Janet (re:CMRE)...Morgan Stanley, expects a fall in EPS as existing charters gradually expire...they expect EPS to decline from $1.43 in 2016 to 88 cents in 2017, bottoming out at about 40 cents in 2018, before improving to an est. of EPS of 75 cents a share in 2020...! That said, the current yield 'is at strong risk' and will probably be reduced to about 24 cents a share from the current $1.16...! Stagg...!
Board members...if anybody is interested, here is some the latest data on SFL...SFL (yield about 12.6% and with a p/e of 6.9), on the 12 different technical indicators I use, is rated a 60% sell on the 5 short term indicators, a 0% hold on the four medium indicators and a 33% sell on the three the long term technical indicators for an overall average of a 40% sell...the ROA is 7.2%, the ROI is 5% and the ROE is 18% (which is very good)...gross margin is 70.5%, Operating margin is 37.1% and profit margin is 49.4% (all more good color)...support is 13.96, pivot is 14.22 and resistance is 14.88...SFL has a one year target price of 16.33...! My opinion is, that SFL (one of my core holdings) has been an excellent long term holding and will continue to cover its yield and to perform OK in the future...SFL seems to be 'a bit off of the investor radar', at this time, because of a lack of any new information (which would bring more investor attention to it)...! Stagg...!
Board members...BDCL will pay 71 cents a share (quarterly)...CEFL will pay 30 cents a share (monthly) and MORL will pay 61 cents a share (monthly) and the record date is 7/14/16 and the payment date is 7/22/16 on all three of them (I did not list all of them as there are to many)...! Stagg...!
mark...I strongly suggest that you never buy any ETN's as you would never be happy with them...I also suggest that you sell all high yield stocks that you own before they go bankrupt, because you find fault in all of them...! Myself, I enjoy getting paid and will continue to do so...! Stagg...!
JK...the big swings are caused by traders and the drop in oil prices...its not criminal for investors or traders to play the markets and take some profit...that all being said, the markets will come back up again as they always do...! Stagg...!
sarge...I can get paid for 'not being able' to plant (to wet, to dry and etc.)...however, it was very wet and then it turned off dry and my soybeans ran out of enough moisture to germinate properly...and then the deer started to eat them as fast as they came up (deer only eat the tops out of the soybeans, which is the growing point of the plant)...corn don't like to get its feet wet when it is coming up, but after that 'rain means grain', lol...! It looks like the markets are following the price of oil back down again and FRO and SFL are taking a beating...traders may also take a beating and investors may be able to pick up some more long term, high yield bargains (???)...! Stagg...!
Janet...I don't think there is anything wrong with SFL (except the share price)...the problem with SFL is that it is boring and 'not doing anything new' to draw attention...! Stagg...!
