    I promise sleestack, I am not pumping. I am only posting so you and others can be aware of what will happen with SYCRF over the next 12 months. I do not like pumpers as well, but I promise you I have probably been invested in MBI a lot longer than you. I have made money in MBI, I just know the limitations of where you are going to go with MBI, and I know what SYCRF will do over the next year.......Only good wishes for you and everyone else........GLTA........Hose

    I do not understand why you are so mean? I have been invested in MBI for quite a while.... but I know that the best you are going to see with MBI is....$13-$14 a share???? Maybe......With SYCRF you have a company which will more than double in the next 12 months....It already has tripled in the last 12 months, and in the next 12 months you will see anywhere from $5 a share conservatively to a possible $10 a share. The ABV on SYCRF is $13-$15 a share today! Just to let you know....Not trying to argue with you, I am trying to help all of the people who are invested in MBI. Similar business but SYCRF is a hidden gem that I want people to know about.........GLTA....Hose

    If you are invested into MBI, you have made a great profit this week!!! Now is the time you should sell your shares and buy into SYCRF!!! MBI is going nowhere fast, and SYCRF will more than double in the next 12 months.......again!!!

  • I found this today. It's a quarter review of an Arbitrage Credit Opportunties Fund -- for Q1 2014. Note what they have to say about Syncora and Ambac:

    Quote:
    During the first quarter a number of our refinancing and merger-related positions were tendered or redeemed. These include Accellent 8.375% and 10.0% Notes which were refinanced in conjunction with the company’s acquisition of Lake Region
    Medical, and Oneok 5.2% notes which were redeemed as part of the company’s plan to separate its natural gas distribution business from its natural gas gathering and processing business.

    The largest performance drivers for the quarter were Syncora Surplus Notes and Ambac Surplus Notes which make up our “Mortgage Put-Back Litigation” bucket. GSAT 8% Convertible Notes were another top performer as the equity and convertibles continued to
    rise on building confidence of FCC approval to convert the company’s mobile satellite spectrum to terrestrial use.

    Our weakest performers were each related to idiosyncratic events that impacted individual companies. These included Endeavour International 1st and 2nd Lien Bonds (a stuck valve in one of the
    company’s key North Sea production sites impacted results and liquidity); and Midwest Vanadium which experienced a fire at its Australian vanadium mine just as production was ramping. We have since exited the Midwest Vanadium position due to the increased
    length of recovery for the assets and significant doubts about the company’s prospects.

    The Mortgage Put-Back Litigation mentioned above relates to our investment in the surplus notes of bond insurance companies Ambac Financial Group and Syncora Holdings. Prior to the financial crisis, bond insurance companies insured or “wrapped” pools of mortgages against the risk of default. As part of this securitization process, the mortgage originators provide guarantees, known as representations and warranties, that these mortgages meet an agreedupon level of underwriting due diligence and c
