    I see that Bill Gross put $5.8 million of his own money into Pimco funds on Monday, and a little of it went into PMF. That's encouraging.

    Well, I guess I was wrong about OHI staying close to 30. If you could buy some of the new issue at 30, that would be quite a bargain.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Dividend now $1.92/year, for a yield of 6.05% based on today's price. Not too bad.

    Go to the Summary page and look at the news articles at the bottom of the page. The article from Business Wire includes the email address of the underwriter (Jefferies LLC) which will allow you to access the prospectus. I haven't looked at it, so I don't know how many hoops you have to jump through to be included in the stock offering.
    I suspect the new offering will keep the price within shouting distance of 30 until it's all completed.

    OHI stock offering

    According to one of the news releases:
    "Omega expects to use the proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include funding the previously announced pending sale/leaseback transaction for 56 facilities currently operated by Ark Holding Company, Inc. Completion of the offering is subject to customary closing conditions.
    Jefferies LLC will serve as the underwriter of the offering. "
    Looking at the OHI website, apparently they have had several similar offerings in the past. Probably not a big deal.

    Sentiment: Buy

    OHI is issuing 2.5 million new shares of stock at $30 per share. I guess that adds about 2% to the share float. Until this deal is completed, OHI will have difficulty rising above $30.

    Looking at the long-term chart, a price of 105 looks to be a decent point to buy in, at least a partial buy. At that price, real yields on the 7-10 year TIPs will be over 1 percent.

    PMF is trading ex-dividend today (July 9). So that would account for 8.125 cents per share drop.

    T Bills are sold at auction by the government. The bills have a fixed value at maturity, so the more the bidders pay for the bills, the less they will receive as interest. So the interest rate for that auction is set by the amount bidders are willing to pay. The government web site treasurydirect DOT gov explains it in detail. The fed is buying a huge percentage of the current issue of treasury securities in order to drive interest rates low. When they stop, it will undoubtedly cause prices to drop and interest rates to rise.

    i have lost

    Bond prices dropped slightly, and some folks seemed to sell their dividend stocks out of fear, like you said. My question is, what are they going to do with their proceeds? In the good old days, you could park it in a money-market fund for as long as you wanted, but that's a money-losing proposition now. They don't seem to be rotating into "growth stocks", as some analysts are suggesting. To me, dividend stocks still make the most sense, and I think a lot of folks are going to be buying them back pretty soon. I don't see that many good alternatives.

    Sold today for $38.11

    Congrats. The drop seemed bad, but so far only dropped OHI back to the price we were at about one week ago. I sold 40% of my position a couple of weeks ago, thinking OHI was getting ahead of itself. The question is, when to buy back in? I fear we are beginning a long period with investors trying to guess what the Fed will do next and when they'll do it. Both stock prices and bond prices may be pretty volatile for a while. Should be interesting.

    Dropping

    Bonds & dividend stocks are dropping, but OHI is down more than most. I'm guessing some large funds are taking profits or rotating into something else.
