    More ways for Yahoo to Annoy

    It is not just Yahoo, it is lots of web site. Plus, ads popping up all over the place. Recently, I replaced my wireless mouse which was misbehaving with a wired gamer mouse. Works great, plus a major benefit is the small clickers on the right side of the mouse which control volume up and down. I always keep it at zero unless I want to hear something. No more fidgeting with the volume control on the screen.

    A year ago, this stock was selling at $9.94. Today, it is at $6.51. That is a 35% drop. That is not chicken feed. I own a number of BDCs and Reits. While all of down, FSC is down a lot more than the rest of them.

    Divvie safe for now

    I don't see where they mentioned anything about the first and second quarter dividend in 2015. So, are we left to guess whether they are dividends, or will they tell us in June of 2016 that they are Return of Capital.

    Holy Smokes. What took then until the middle of this year to determine that ALL of 2014 dividends are NOT dividends but Return of Capital? Have they fired the CFO along with this announcement? Where did they think those cash distributions were coming from in 2014?

    Fortunately, I hold this stock in a tax deferred IRA. So, this reclassification will not impact me. For those holding this stock in a taxable account, you will have the enjoyment of having to file an AMENDED 2014 Federal and possibly State return. Otherwise, you will have paid too much tax for 2014, and when you eventually sell the stock, you will be paying a higher capital gains tax because your purchase cost of this stock will have been reduced by the amount of the 2014 Return of Capital.

    Hey, Lucy. Since you seem to think so little about AGNC, hopefully you no longer own any shares. In consideration of that, why are you wasting your time and our time posting your negative thoughts. Just maybe you should have investigated more and discovered that just about all REITS have performed negatively to the S&P. Maybe with a little further investigation, you would have learned why that is the case, and maybe with a little patience for the next couple of years you will change your opinion as to the performance of AGNC..

    So, B of A just downgraded KORS to Neutral with a price target of $60. Let's see, right now the price is $46.29. So, a move to $60 would be nearly a 30% increase. Somehow that 30% increase is rated a Neutral at B or A. What a joke.

    Today's volume was 70% above its 90 day average. The stock has dropped $5 a share in the last two months, and nearly $8 a share in the last 9 months.

    You need to educate yourself. Ex-dividend day was 3/27. Today is the day the dividend is paid out. The Ex date is the one that counts.

    Ex div. day was 4/1, and the dividend was 21 cents. On 3/31, the stock closed down 23 cents. On 4/1 when it went ex the 21 cent dividend, the stock was down 33 cents, 12 cents more than the dividend. On 4/2, ti dropped another 23 cents, and today it is down a further 31 cents. How do you explain a $1.10 drop on a 21 cent dividend.

    Volume already is 2 1/2 times average 90 day volume, and the market remains open for another 2 1/2 hours. In the meantime, management is tight lipped. I hold numerous BDCs, all of which are up today except two which are both down only one cent.
