    oil surplus

    by jfredrogo Nov 29, 2014 6:46 PM

    The traders in the pits are causing the free fall of oil prices, plus with a lot of hype from the media. This has happened a number of times in years gone by. The most recent was when Boone Pickens said that Oil would go to $150.00 a bbl, the traders jumped on the news and Oil price shot up to over $120.00. What is different this week vs 4-5 weeks ago in the world oil users, not very much!!!! Stock prices of Oil companies will bottom pretty quickly, as investors seek real bargains going forward. LNCO at current price is a buy and hopefully my bid will fill on Monday! The dividend may be cut slightly but recent financial filings indicate it will not be cut.

    Hi smoothjazz0204.....have not seen you around for some time at least not on RSO board. JMP upgrade is nice news but that desk has not been following RSO financials to come to that type of conclusion. With the current NAV, RSO would be trading at a tremendous premium even close to JMP target. JMP did not advise when they anticipated that target be met. Am thinking maybe Fred Kane is in the JMP house!

    A lot of investors are hurting as many bought into MCC in the 12's. Unfortunately MCC is not advising anybody of the legal situation causing a lot of investors loosing patience and selling. The yield as we speak is over 13%, to sell now does not seem to be a good idea. In mid December a very nice distribution is coming our way, with the current depressed stock price it seems like an opportunity to add. MCC has had solid earnings in the past so the possible lawsuit and management fees are hurting the small income orientated investor, loosing patience in management abilities.

    conference call

    Not sure what investors are looking for? RSO appears to be slowly building the company not as quick as a lot of investors like or want. With a 16% yield thought it would be a good time to pick up another 10k this morning after the decline to $5.00. Each investor has their reasons for selling, my reason for buying is the handsome return. LOL!

    "What can we do?" Have to agree with marionpolk2000, Buy and hold and collect the dividends. Some times one needs to be patient, buy at the right time. Not easy as I have bought too soon but the high yield enticed me. Added more when the prices went down as in the last couple of weeks. The nice thing about high yielders is that unless earnings really get slammed the dividends keep coming. Might not like the fact that the stock is down 10% or so but hang on you still own the stock. No loss unless you sell!!!!

    Why no buying?

    The problem with TICC and a host of other stocks, funds etc. is that investors are losing their shirt day after day with market malaise that is occurring now. Investors are selling and asking questions later. Guess I should have too. It only takes these type of people to drive the market down in 2 weeks, takes 4 years to bring it back. I just hope that the dividend payers I have keep producing returns!

    I, for one is sitting tight. No sense fighting the market that is in Bear form, will continue for most of October. Past history says October is atrocious, so best to get better bargains than are available today. Look at the stellar EV Funds today, very scary but refuse to sell. Still paying a great dividend just like TICC etc.

    Not since 2008-2009 have we seen declines like this. A lot of short sellers taking advantage of the bad news on world today and scarriedy cats selling during the current storm! Bottom not here yet, although some good buys now, waiting it out. Dividends keep coming, portfolio looks sick.

    What is driving FSC lower?.

    If you bought some dividend paying stocks like MCC, just hang on as this crash will pass and weather will be sunny tomorrow! No way I will sell now, as long as MCC and others don't make the dividend we will be okay. Took me almost 2 years after 2008 debacle to get untracked but like I said it will pass. Hope it will not take 2 years again!!!!!

    The yield is only 13.3% today. Now a days investor want returns a lot faster than every quarter. Perhaps if TICC paid monthly it might give investors a feeling of faster returns the better some have done this such as PSEC, FSC, EV Funds etc. Will it help I do not know, but I for one like it!

    Started a position today with MCC

    The factor that this investor did not cotton onto was same as PSEC not long ago. Any bad news as was the case with PSEC has the shorts in seventh heaven. The litigation news on MCC has done exactly the same thing, compounded by economic news that has most investors waiting for the Fed and Corporate earnings to be better than expected. Global news has not been very positive either.

    The next BDC etc. that reports negative comments such as MCC, I will short it as well. Lesson learned by a slow to catch on investor!!! LOL!

    nnpro48...A few weeks ago MCC did exactly the same thing. Captured the dividend by buying at $12.78-$12.92 after their SPO. Bought a bunch of KCAP this morning at $8.12 so I can capture the 12.3% yield in a couple of days. With the NAV as you state I suspect, maybe wrong, but I am thinking KCAP will be trading down to close to that price.

    ..MCC is at 11.60 this morning so I lost my shirts plus, for $2220 00. How long before it will be green again?

    pumps and dumps....Been in market for quite some time, my first broker advised to use margin to enhance earnings. At the time he was correct as the oil stocks were zooming but I did not like the interest they were charging plus he could sell whenever. Thought about it and said no!!! So my question is how bad is bad when forced to sell and interest rate?
    Had some good winners over the years but since 2002 I simply go for dividends. Some times getting in is tough but I have learned to be patient. I sold KCAP at $8.42 for a .42 cent gain. I suggested in July that KCAP would do an SPO shortly, shortly is 3 months!! Will buy in after SPO seems like might be plan A, however I bought MCC at $12.78 figuring that was a great price......then MCC has to defend rightly or wrongly in the litigation. So I do not have to nor am I forced to sell. We are all hoping things will get back on track by December dividend time. Lets hope KCAP is smarter!!!

    ....Some time today a lot of us under water boys will get a few bucks added to our accounts. Am thinking I could pick up a few more TICC at the current depressed price. If a bunch of us would add to our positions maybe we could get this thing moving in the right direction! ha! The overall market is dictating the shorts better interests!
    ....RSO currently shows a 16% yield, yet we still have sellers!

    The current yield on RSO is close to 16%, good news out yesterday on RSO per J. Cohen and very few buyers as of today. Any other investment out there that pays more than 16%, let me know! Long 14k!

    Please try to be civil, most of us are hurting badly with the current decline of MCC. News on MCC would be appreciated. You are not the largest shareholder of MCC on this board by a long shot! LOL!
