I emailed Molly the day after and told her about my disappointment in the bonuses and she stated they were per compensation contracts. I wrote her back and told her that would not play well to a jury if "grandma lost all her money" and the C Suite people get bonuses. Losing money stinks but is part of investing- the bonuses stink to "high heaven". If the bonuses had to be paid via contract, pay the bonuses and then fire the people in charge!
I watch the video and I guess Bary was just early:) and Facebook will go to $15 per share someday but of course it must go down through $50 per share first - LOL
CANCEL you Barron's subscription. They are trying to control investments as opposed to reporting news.
Investors are always writing about focus on the long term. Yet nothing has changed with Kinder except an article in the Barron's rag and many dump their positions. Anyone selling today is a speculator "pure and simple"...and cattle that follow the herd... good luck and moo to you all!
"Pleeeaase" Kaiser did not take down BWP...he was attacking KMP and LINE and issued a sell on BWP just like the "real" analysts did. He is 0 for 2 on his main attacks. If I issues a sell recommendation on all MLPs I bet I would be right with one or two:)
Ha ha they are laughing at us as idiots! They were bribed to go ahead and crush the price of the units and they got paid from 400k to a million +...this is outrageous. I will make it my personal mission to seek revenge against the board and the C suite of Boardwalk Partners...I have made and lost amount of money on investments and speculation. I have never been upset as that is the nature of the game...but nothing has been so outrageous as these thieves and add Lowes to the scam as well!
We should all go to the annual meeting and metaphorically bring pitchforks!!
Yea, thanks so much for caring about us unit holders. Boardwalk is not doing this without Lowes forcing it. Cutting distribution is much worse than dilution and by 81%- thanks for caring about us.
I am stunned...a 90% cut. No partnership would ever do this. This is total BS and something smells bad, not just revenues decreasing.
Concerning the rating on ARCPP, I do not doubt what you write is correct, I just not have found the Ba1 rating on the Schwab platform. Can you tell me when you have seen it.
Come on bio,
You see the cut and paste articles that are constantly being put in every single post at the same time. You don't see that kind of #$%$ with most companies earning money. I am long CMXI but when new potential buyers come to the board and see that #$%$...it is suspicious INMO. CMXI is now an exciting company on the verge of profits so we don't need pumping.
I agree with your comments, especially... it gets old, continuing to see old news. There seems to be a difference in the last month. Someone besides "the usually suspects" seem to believe the story of CMXI- pushing the price up a little. If the price goes right back down then there was no substance.
I have never been more enthusiastic that my speculation in CMXI may become a real company with real earnings due to the Autologel opportunity. Then we can claim it to be an investment (versus speculation). Everything seems to take longer than we want.
Many ARC IV non-traded REITs shareholders were given ARCPP in the liquidation event. I knew it would not trade for 25 based on 6.75% yield but it is a surprise how poorly it is performing. There was dumping from ARC IV shareholders- maybe it is not over. Currently paying almost 8% yield. I do not see a rating on Schwab's platform from Moody's. That may be the reason that institutional investors are not buying and may not even see it on their screen- I am unsure how that works. If anyone knows how important a rating is...please add to the discussion.
Hey Boardwalk Leadership,
I hope The Boardwalk leadership will listen to the Kinder Morgan conference call from yesterday. All their leaders were not just giving information; but conveyed passion and belief about the future and the future sounded bright. As a BWP holder of units for a while, I understand that 2013/ 2014 are going to be average at best but if you have a belief in the future of the company "tell us". If the distribution is not going to be cut in 2014- say it proud. We don't want cheerleaders to run the companies we invest in. At the end of the day it is about execution...but if you have a plan to increase our investment, please lay it out with conviction.
If you are cutting the distribution...never mind- just make it as quick as possible.
Thanks....I feel much better now.
Actually, I agree with you; very poor post. I am sorry to the board for not reading before posting.
It is now of never and I saw now! We have a product that can save a foot or other wound that costs $411 dollars per therapy and the profit margin is 278 dollars. How many companies in healthcare would enjoy sharing these types of profits. I am not saying it is a therapy that costs $60,000 a dose but get a fee clinics using it and it can become a decent sized product.
The client base of customers,, doctors, is a very focused group. The sales force and regulatory would have a limited about of targets to see and could see them quickly. The studies are already done and Autologel appears to work extremely well and is safe. I always say these things take time to get on track...but sh$&, the product can be launched by Q2 if there is a partnership.
Give me thumbs up if you agree
and a thumbs down if you think a partnership is not about to pop.
Spoke to rep from ARC and the cash will be sent on the 17th of January and from what I have seen from Schwab is it take about 5 business days to reflect in account but it will be back dated...not that 5 days worth of interest is all that great. I am slightly annoyed that we have to wait for cash but also aware that these things take time.
I am glad...I own the preferred too!
Many of you that like ARCP also know "O".
Here is the price as of 4:00pm today for "O's" preferred stock
REALTY INCOME CORP PFD CL E coupon: 6.75% current yield 6.84% Par: $25.00
CURRENT PRICE: $24.66 Ratings: BBB- Baa2
ARCPP is at 20.30? which makes it over 8.2% current yield.
I am unsure what the rating of ARCPP if any, but I believe all of those ARC IV conversion holders are just dumpling ARCPP shares on the market. I hope I am correct.
Great question rrlrrl,
I believed the preferred would trade at a discount. I will hold it for a while but not buy more as I bought the non-traded reit for a specific purpose (not currently taxable monthly income, no "visable" fluctuation in price, and hope for capital appreciation). ARC Healthcare...I am not sure. I really like the triple net lease opportunity with all the ARCs but I do not know enough about the non-traded Healthcare REIT to have an opinion.
"ARCP’s 6.70% Series F
Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (“Series F Preferred Stock”) (NASDAQ: ticker ARCPP)"
Since it is currently trading at 21.5 ish then the current yield is actually 7.79%. Good for people that want to buy...not as good if you received in ARC IV conversion...which I did. I would expect it to go to around 23 but doubt it will ever reach 25. All in all anyone that bought ARC IV had a pretty good return so I am not complaining too bad.
