  • Board members...all of my holdings are doing great today and CXW, DHT, FRO and MORL are leading the pack...when the high yielders 'surge in share price' our Total Returns are wonderful...! Keep the faith and enjoy the profits...! Stagg...!

  • Board members...we are now half way through Bloody October and I am ready to start buying again...I had a poor income year off of the farms, so the best way to boost that income is to invest it in some high yielding stocks...

    Within the next two weeks, I will be 'adding more' TICC (yield about 20.2%), KCAP (yield about 13.5%), CXW yield about 15.2%), DLNG (yield about 11.2%) and DHT yield about 21.9%)...! My on-going revenue stream from my investments and my farm income give me a bit of extra cash to take advantage of the recent market pullbacks...! Stagg...!

  • Board members...thanks to sarge, I have now started a position in CXW (yield about 15%) because: I like the yield, the color (the ROE is a healthy 13.9%), their current on-going cost cutting (which should help secure the yield), the fact that it is over-sold and the forward outlook...! Stagg...!

    Board we paly our cards correct, this on-going market pull-back is 'a future money maker' ...myself, I am reinvesting my revenue stream on the market/stock dips and will do the same with my farm income...every investor knows to buy low and sell high, but the fact is that most do the opposite...

    I believe we will see 'a short term flash crash' when the Fed. increase interest rates again, but that will also be a buying opinion is, that market pull-backs are always strong money makers over the longer term (if we take advantage of it)...! Again, this is still a, high yield, stock pickers paradise and the best is yet to come (I plan to add more DHT, TICC, KCAP and DLNG) ...! Stagg...!

    bayman...this is also an excellent dividend month for me...I only hold 11 high stocks at this time and I will collect dividends on 4 of them this month...I also don't understand why some investors hold so many stocks (70 to 80, ???), if an investor is going to hold that many stocks , maybe they should just buy index funds...? Same old story here, as I am still trying to 'hold the line' and to keep increasing my revenue made a good move on NRZ as 'it is a keeper'...! Stagg...!

    gambler...its sad that some investors do not understand Total Returns and Compounded Total Returns...some investors never post or understand: a) Total Returns over a given time frame, b) any technical indicators, c) stocks that seem to have sustainable high yields, d) dollar cost averaging, e) the over-all color of a stock and a lot of the other data...! Keep the faith and keep investing as we are still on a strong roll this year...! Stagg...!

  • staggman99 by staggman99 Oct 5, 2016 9:45 PM Flag

    Board members...every once in a while I do this so other investors can gage their holdings in comparison to this time I am holding:

    NRZ (yield about 13.4%)...

    SFL (yield about 12.4%)...

    BDCL (yield about 15.5%)...

    PSEC (yield about 12.3% and pays monthly)...

    FRO (yield about 11.1%)...

    DHT (yield about 22.4%)...

    KCAP (yield about 12.8%)...

    CEFL (yield about 19.5% and pays monthly)...

    MORL (yield about 20.9% and pays monthly)...

    TICC (yield about 19.8%)...

    DLNG (yield about 10.8%)...

    That said, my average weighted yield is 14.1% and I am now up about 46% this year in Total Returns...I plan to add more DLNG and maybe take some more profit on BDCL...however, NRZ, SFL, PSEC and BDCL are all core holdings with almost equal value (except for BDCL which is top heavy)...! So far this has been an excellent investment year and I hope to keep increasing my revenue stream going forward...! Stagg...!

    gambler...I may sell MORL soon, not sure yet and waiting for the next dividend, as it may be huge...I think that the BDC's are the right place to be when interest rates increase (I like NRZ because of their MSR's)...I also still like BDCL, PSEC and KCAP...DLNG may be the safest holding that I have (???) and I plan to add more (NEWT has a nice looking chart and is interesting)....! bayman, William and myself have all had a great year in the markets (so far) and we are just trying to keep it going...! Stagg...!

    bayman...yes, I have DHT in my current holdings and I plan to add more as I build a position in opinion is, that DHT has the same amount of risk as FRO with twice the amount of this time, I am a little underwater on DHT, however, I feel that if my Total Returns overlay my loses, then I am in the money on a holding...

    That said, another investor ask me how I know when to sell a stock and I said the answer is easy...the time to sell stocks is when they no longer have the color to make us a profit...therefore, FRO is getting closer to making me a profit and so is DHT...! A lot of investors need to get a 'stronger grip' on Total and Compound Returns...we cannot calculate Total and Compound Returns over just a few months...! Stagg...!

    bayman...I check out this message board almost every day, as I also post messages on the 'old format and the new format' of SFL...I just posted a message on the new format that I feel SFL is at a good point to add more shares...SFL is my very long term cash machine and I am staying the course...I will have some farm income to add to my accounts in the next 30 days...

    I also feel that the I.V. AMNB message board is getting to be almost useless (???), because they 'talk in circles' and have a lot of weird ideas about investing...i.e. most of them never discuss high yields, dollar cost averaging, Total Returns, Compound Returns, p/e ratios, technical indicators or do much, if any research (most of it is always opinions)...and then they think we are lying about our results...! I wonder why some investors are so lazy and bullheaded (???)...this is a strong month for my revenue stream (SFL, KCAP and NRZ are next)...! Stagg...!

  • Board members...bayman posted an outstanding message on the I.V. AMNB message board about how he sold his NYMT holdings for a loss yet made a lot of profit on his dividends over several years (Total Returns)...what bayman did not tell investors was 'how much more he made by reinvesting' the revenue stream from his NYMT holdings...

    bayman, is an outstanding investor and here is the way it works...i.e. $10,000.00 invested for one year at 12% yield will be $11,200.00, however, $10,000.00 reinvested 'at compound returns' over 4 years is $15, point is, that bayman's Total Returns on NYMT and then compounded were a lot more ($14,800.00 vs $15,735.99 or $939.00 more)...bayman is a long term successful and outstanding investor because of his high yields and compound returns (and he had a lot more than $10,000.00 invested in NYMT over 4 years, as I just used this as an example)...! Again, compound returns always win and it pays to reinvest...! Stagg...!

    Tuesday ---it is green

    by sarge198502 Sep 20, 2016 11:44 AM
    staggman99 staggman99 Sep 22, 2016 12:35 PM Flag Thursday and we are still green, my holdings are still on the fast track and my revenue stream is flowing strong...I may be gone for a few days as I have a lot of dirt to spread from dredging out two of my lakes...I also have a lot of waterways to mow and corn to get to market...! Investing and farming is a lot of fun and because of that I am a very lucky guy...! Good luck and keep the faith...P.S. FRO, CEFL, MORL and DHT are all doing great today...! Stagg...!

  • Board far this sell off after Labor Day has not been as bad as I expected and while the averages are down today I am up next move is to sell some of my FRO (yield about 11.5%)holdings and move those funds in more DHT (yield about 22.5%)...FRO and DHT have about the same color, but DHT has a better yield (and I can get twice as much, with the same risk)...I also still plan to start a position in DLNG, if I can catch a pull-back in the share price...! This market is still sweet and I am fine with the current results...! Stagg...!

    Board members...back in March I posted that we would probably get a strong Mid-Summer Rally and we did...I have also posted 'several times' that we would probably get a strong sell-off after Labor Day and we have...this will all pass, in good time, and we will probably have a very strong Santa Clause Rally near the end of the year...! That all being said, this is a poor market to be trading in and out of...probably best, to just collect our yields and look for bargains (as there will be plenty)...! Stagg...!

    William...excellent message (a thumbs up for you), its true, we have to be ready to change as the stocks/markets change in the future...please remember, that we decide when to buy or sell but the computers determine the price (unless we set it)...the crash on Friday (09/09/16) has a dirty smell to it...

    Not only do we have to pick the right stocks, 'we also have to beat the crooks' as they are everywhere' and always playing a new game...more, just because we read it 'does not mean it is true'...we should only trust ourselves...i.e. look at Wells Fargo and the games that some of their people played on the investors (and there will be others in the future)...! Stagg...!

    William...I am 'for sure buying' something on Monday, probably all take is, that the markets/stocks always over correct (to high or to low), but it is not to hard to make money 'in the middle' (I can 'catch the middle' easier than the high or low)...if I can keep increasing my revenue stream, eventually my principal will follow...

    I never follow the crowd, because the crowd is usually wrong...i.e. its crazy to not invest in high yield stocks with sustainable yields, for the long term...while I follow my 12 technical indicators, I also feel that most investors trade to much, as I invest for the longer haul...I do take some profits for core holdings balance, but most of my reinvestments are from revenue stream...

    What good does it do to have a lot of funds on the sidelines when a) investors may miss a future rally. b) they miss the revenue stream fro those funds. c) they also miss out on the compound returns. More, a lot of the investors that disagree with my model are usually in a bad mood and get upset when I post my Total Returns, why is that (???)...! Stagg...!

  • Board members (09/11/16)...none of my holdings went bankrupt or stop paying out their yields over the weekend and I am going to take advantage of it...everything looks good and I will start a position in DLNG (yield about 11.1%) and add more DHT (yield about 21.6%) and KCAP (yield about 13.1%)...! Stagg...!

    hoops...SFL went x-dividend today, so the fact is that is, it has not dropped much in share opinion is, that stocks always over-correct (they go to high or to low), but its not to hard to make money in the middle...! SFL is still a good buy right here and now (for the long haul)...! Stagg...!

  • Board members...FRO, DHT, KCAP and SFL are my daisies today...this it the time of the year that our portfolios 'start to suffer', but it has not started next buy, will probably be DLNG (yield about 11.4%), if I can catch a pull-back on it in the share price...! Stagg...!
