    Weren't the Dutch auction and the $200mm buyback separate events? If so, the $200mm was announced to take place over the next 12 months, depending on price and market conditions. Whereas the auction was a one shot event.

    Since you both follow NRZ closely, when the price tanked, it got down to the low $9's twice before it reversed. Maybe that was the floor mgt. set before putting money to work. Your thoughts?

    Eureka I figured it out

    Then why not just buy FIG also?

    Everything NCT spun off (SNR, NEWM, NRZ) I still own. When I figured this out a while ago, I bought a bunch of FIG. So I also get a taste of FTAI, LEAF, SNOW and EUIVF.

    Now that the Novogratz's stuff is being dissolved, hopefully FIG's payout should increase.

    Hana, I responded to your email. Hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday season.

    We know you hate OCN. Can you find a better topic to discuss? And I do not care for racist comments, either.

    Merry X-Mas,

    Novogratz retired and FIG is buying him out. That might help you.

    Read my post on the FIG board. BTW, they buyout price was announced at $4.50/share.

    Happy Thanksgiving,

    I'm not worried about it. When they bought out Nomura, they raised the dividend from 6 to 8 cents. Before that, they bought out Kaufman (another founder) and the dividend went from 5 to 6 cents.

    With all these buyouts over the last three years, they have reduced the total outstanding shares by 40 percent.

    Kaufman - 10%
    Nomura - 16% net
    Novogratz - 15%

    Pretty smart closing down the hedge fund. It looks like we are going into a deflationary period. Providing alternative financing and buying distressed assets may be the way to go for the time being.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Go back through my previous posts. They are the guys who bought out HLSS from OCN. Read the business relationship between OCN and NRZ. I feel those are the guys that will end up picking OCN's bones.

  • What is NCT doing to increase rounds? Are either of you familiar with ClubCorp (MYCC)? I like the program they have and am strongly thinking of joining.

    How many of these boomers have second homes? I for one would not want to tie myself to one club with dues, monthly minimums and the rest of what goes with joining a country club if I'm going to float between Pennsylvania and Florida, South Carolina, Scottsdale, or whatever.

    I am a soon to be retired boomer who is going to spend more time trying to lower my handicap and fly fishing. I'm also very long NCT and the spinoffs. GLTA.
