    For you to even use a reference to 'professional' in one of ur posts border(s) on insanity.
    Are you still using the 'local price of an ear of sweet corn for forecasting ur idiot projections of commodities?

    There is threshold limit for how much UBIT income you can receive in IRA. If you surpass it your trustee will charge for having to file and you will have to take a distribution to pay the IRS. If you are under 59.5 that distribution invoke early withdrawal penalties.

    Analyst System is a Joke

    System?
    Analyst(s) are number crunchers with usu a finance/accounting/economics degree with maybe a CFA certification. They are no different than engineers who crunch #'s for a different purpose.

    It seems non-financially educated amateurs always think there is intentional manipulation in the mkts.

    Now if you want to consider real manip__take Putin rattling his sword while trading wheat and energy futures!! Russian 'Emperors' have done this many times. The largest % move in gold was when Russian troops entered Afghanistan!

    "even if he receives far more than he paid in"
    Are you professing that someone who has earned income forcibly taken should not receive any return on that money. Even if you did profess that__what about the forgone cost of opportunity.

    Well I hv a portfolio just north of 1 mill. I first bought the bonds and then the equity at 5.11 (1600 shs)__when the sh price doubled I sold 800 shs to take my seed money out.
    I have swing traded 500 shs back and forth a couple of times. Anybody that would put more than 1% of their nut in a risky play like this__does not follow mmichaelr's 'road to riches' paradigm.

    Of course 'Now' I wished I had bought the equity when I bought their bonds. % wise this move has bn incredible__however, while the bonds hv moved +__their relative performance points to short covering as probably the major driver of this uptrend.

    If I owned the equity I wld b looking at writing the OCT $2 calls against at least a portion of my position__or if you would be satisfied with getting called away the OCT 1.50. Since this whole run is produced by rumor/spec__since I do not own the equity I am looking at the puts____if I had bought the equity when I bought the bonds__I wld definitely buy insurance puts. This stock could retreat 'in a heartbeat' on any neg news about this debt relief.

    I wld like 2 c the shack survive__I was in one 2day 2 buy a connector 2 fix an antenna input.

    The problem is I do not c how this possible deal keeps them out (delays yes) of a BK filing. I suspect that if a deal is made__those debtors will negotiate a position that enhances their position in a BK.

    Do u really accept that it is justifiable that an unarmed person should have had that many shots pumped in2 them?? Would not of 2 sufficed?
    That was an execution not a subdue and arrest event!
    While I am not cognizant of MO. legal specifics__without premeditation__murder might not be the charge that should be delivered__but certainly__some indictment of manslaughter.
    In my county there is no possibility that I could pump that many shots in2 even a vicious dog and have not lead to a court trial!

    One needs to work that thru the overall bond traders and therefore investors psyche Vs. asset allocation models___we are coming to the place in the cycle__where disconnects occur between different debt sectors. This is to be expected if one believes that economy performance is catching up with P/E and cash flow forward market pricing. In other words while the sector rotation is different from an average recovery phase__inherent to this cycle will be ‘a reversion to mean’ and a further expansion (build out) of cash flows for the most efficient capital applied sectors.
    This is the phase (expected) where active management will out-perform passive relative to applied fee(s). Retail mutual fund and ETFs outflows/inflows are already reflecting this. A retail (‘emotional ‘run back and forth btwn almost 100%__either way)investor; such as ur self is already producing the required ‘removal of froth’ from sectors that provide the base building for sector multiple expansions.
    While I would relish a more ‘normal’ -10% (+) broad correction__these quick -3-4% corrections elicited deeper froth removal within index sectors. This is ‘classically health restoring’. Without an extraneous event and whether mkts produce these ‘hit and run’ corrections or a deeper sector rotation__the indexes will not end the overall upward trend until the Nasdaq and European indexes have breached their historical His. Notice I did include Japan in this. With the structural economic adjustments and govt creation of the ‘new 400’ index__it could outperform.
    It is not an efficient use of capital to be in cash equivalents and under invested in capital expansion industries.

    I own the bonds (0.392 per $)__I feel the equity has 2 much risk relative 2 BK recovery. However, if a reasonable negotiation would transpire with the creditors to allow RSH 2 aggressively move ahead (with store closings) the equity would outpace the debt. Then I may become an equity holder!

    I shopped sales this past wkend (including JCP). I do not know how someone could be confident buying items such as suits/sport coats, pants and shoes without trying on first. There is such a variation in labeled sizes and since alterations are $$__one has to be careful. I did do some buying online for clothing (during after Xmas clearances) but I was careful to read feedback postings__watching for comments about off sizing. That just made the experience a hassle!

    You ‘all’ do realize that this post is from HXH—‘AKA’ the flame/bozo with well over a hundred IDs created (no real life)__but this type of post would have been under his/she-he__ dr chumps ID__except that ID has for at least a yr and half now__has posted the most wrongway__idiot based analysis__only matched by dr doom and Robert Prechter.
    Hey dr chumps do u want to try again__to tell us that commodity prices are accelerating__using ur Chicago land ‘Jewel’ sale price of ‘sweet corn’ ?????????. You are the premier idiot. If we took you at ur ‘posting word’ __which only a fool would believe in the first place¬¬__you have missed the basing out of P/E expansion that is typical and predictable of this phase of the business cycle.
    Once again I advise you__that if you spent just 1/3 the time reading academic published material instead of internet blogs__you might actually learn how to make $$ in the mkts. The same can be said for the run to cash and back forth idiot Raybans!!

    what you are using as the symbol is dependent upon the quotation network service. NEE-PC works for Yahoo__Fidelity would be neeprc or NEEPRC. The registered symbol is most likely NEE-C.
