Davis have you ever thought of the money people have lost listening to you? that alone should give you pause to be retrospective and a touch of humility
I haven't seen many posts from the original Davis, I think you've drove some humility into him Davis II, good job.
All of the mREITs in MORL's portfolio are up today so its book value must also be up and typically MORL PPS follows its book
He initially spells out the attributes of MORL and ends with: "An investment of $100,000 would be worth $274,810 in five years. More interestingly, for those investing for future income, the income from the initial $100,000 would increase from the $22,400 initial annual rate to $61,557 annually."
Last big qtr., January '16, 1000M plus shares were traded on disbursement date and day after, they'll be a lot of re-investment of divi transactions on 4-20-16 and the day after also, IMO it would be wise to buy in earlier
With interest rates back near all-time lows, Bill Gross recently told Barron's that investors should consider borrowing to boost returns.
In a near-zero interest rate world, Bill Gross is spot on about the benefits of borrowing. There seems to be a general consensus that stock returns will be meager for some time, and 10-year bonds are yielding a paltry 1.7%. If you inject a bit of cheap leverage to the equation, though, you can quickly turn a measly return into a far more attractive one.
Davis II you're a riot you ease some of the pain I still suffer from whenever I think about the losses I had with this POS while being reassured by Davis I and his buddy Yankeeboy4748
another ETN I am invested in is CEFL that has a portfolio based on close ended funds it also yields in the low 20%'s
A major inventment I currently have is MORL; a portion of this note's portfolio is based on RAS:
UBS ETRACS Monthly Pay 2xLeveraged Mortgage REIT ETN
The UBS ETRACS Monthly Pay 2xLeveraged Mortgage REIT ETN (NYSEARCA: MORL) is an exchange-traded note linked to the monthly compounded 2x leveraged performance of the Market Vectors Global
Mortgage REITs Index. It pays a variable monthly coupon linked to double the cash distributions on the 23 Index constituents. The note's 52-week range is $8.16 to $21.23, but its current yield is a whopping 32.39%
I haven't visited this site in months, but now I can see that you're the new comedian for the RAS page. I used to be invested in RAS but got out after the reverse split. I felt somewhat confident in my investment in RAS because I foolishly believed that Davis knew what he was talking about . He like you, throws out some points that sounds like he was an educated investor, only after a while I realized that he was a day trader trying to pump-up RAS in the morning and cover it in the afternoon.
So don't give me any #$%$ about what level on financial knowledge I have.
Nonsense? you've been listening to nonsense for the past decade coming from Davis, Anyone who's still invested in this garbage stock is either a fool, an uninformed investor or a combination thereof
The announcement of Anally buying Hatteras also had a considerable effect on MORL's pps,,,,,,,,,, MORL's portfolio is composed of both mREITS.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Today's announcement (4-11-16) of NLY buying HTS sharply pushed HTS pps up, also effecting the upwards activity of MORL
