I've not gotten my first issue yet. I'll screen all of their stock picks.
How are your investments performing this year?
Sorry, I have not seen that abbreviation in the past. I'm not sure why you would not type out the last few letters.
This is a stock message board, so I am not certain why you are asking about the salaries of Social Workers. Is this your field of work? If so, I appreciate the work you are doing.
Of course I am not Paul. I'm Kaptain Lou.
Your spelling and grammar are poor. What do you mean "I think Paul would prob."? Plus, when starting a sentence, such as "marry you, if you asked him", the first word should be capitalized.
I used to get this newsletter a few years ago, but decided to subscribe again. Some of their investments are hit and miss, but maybe I will get a few good ideas from them.
Wow, you are good. Social workers provide a critical service in America and they should be paid wages that are higher.
Social workers are clearly underpaid, based on the valuable services they provide. I think they deserve a raise.
Too much of my portfolio is in REIT preferreds a I am looking to diversify a little bit. The stock market looks a little overvalued now, but think TAXI is probably fairly valued. Plus, every once in awhile I like to have a little fun in my portfolio.
Thanks David, it is less than 1% of my holdings and thought the company was interesting.
I'm not responding to his nonsense anymore, as it is the same lies over and over.
I like to hear the good and the bad. Thanks for all of the comments. I just have a very small position, and like the company, but time will tell.
Thanks again to all of my friends on the board !!!
Hope all shareholders like the increase. Woo hoo!
Paul, they are not going to issue more licenses, with minor exceptions. NYC controls these pretty tightly and they also control cab fees. This holding is less than 1% of my portfolio, but the company is pretty solid.
Wish I could have bought at $11.50, but the price does not look bad and the dividend should hold. Guess time will tell. Only picked up a few shares today. Just trying to discuss some fixed income on this board and get some ideas out there.
Thanks for the comment. Do you own shares?
LOL, thanks. I knew about them before from an investment newsletter, but was reminded again with the October 2014 issue of Kiplinger's Personal Finance. I'm going to take a small position now.
Paul, Barron's did run some negative things on LINN, and I normally trust their advice. The CFO job is very busy, but I am enjoying it.
I have not picked up any shares of Gladstone, as the structure appears complicated. I prefer simple companies like PSB and their preferreds. I read BDC Buzz for his articles on BDCs and think he is pretty good.
Paul, just my personal opinion, but I don't like LNCO and LINN. Barron's has had a number of articles on LINN. It's a little too risky for me and I will stick with some other companies for now. The yields on REIT preferreds are low right now, but at least they won't reduce the dividend or default. Just my thoughts here.
Yes, I think you would. But if you have help the investment for 10 years, would anyone know the exact costs basis. People tend to get rid of old tax forms. It's possible a taxpayer could get a notice a few years later. The old IRS computer system was pretty bad.
