Like who is not with CDs in the basement. I have three possibles for you to consider__only one is leveraged. Note I have an "Omnibus account and sales agreement" with Fidelity. The first is FRIFX second is FFRHX (not barn burners_but well managed) the third is JRO; a closed end fund trading below NAV. This is the leveraged one__we were picking up shares today near the 52 wk low of 11.66. If you consider it_hold your allocation to 1 to 1.5% or your income allocation. The nice thing about FFRHX and JRO__they payout monthly. Good luck to you__and let hope Katy hunts down that rodent!!
Katy__good post__I noticed you changed from the [ to (. Are you liking me. I am wondering where you heard Sam today. I have a feed that supplies me with the weekday WBBM 780 AM business show. Sam was interviewed today__was that it or was it on a talking head channel like MSNBC?
Sam (the father) was a regular on the now defunct "Wall Street Week" show. Produced from Ownings Mills, Maryland. I was there for a taping. Just a mile or so from there the studio was a restaurant 'The Cabin'. It was actually a historic registered site that had become expanded over decades to service the business. Greatest orange sauced duck I have ever had!!!
Why are you not out destroying the RAT__please do not let the rodent off the hook__you have him cowering in the corner of his moms basement. Castrate him and post the pics.
By the way you missed mentioning Norman Fosback (spelling?) or Stan Weinstein also noted for sector analysis as a prelude to index performance.
Stan especially published a book "Profiting In Bull and Bear Markets" that took sector and equity analysis to a new level of understanding. The theme is four stages. Alot easier to use and comprehend than 'Elliot Wave'!!!
You know moron everything does not have to be an idiocy fight.
I just provided numbers I have databased because unlike GED(s) I analyze the market.
It is Fred that had previously posted the dec ugly month comment. Christ you reply to so many posts__ you cannot keep track. Katy may be right about you!
Fred usually I do not recommend books that are not printed from publisher(s), such as, New York Institute of Finance,McGraw Hill or a noted textbook publisher like Prentice Hall. I am always looking for new source material for our 'Financial Analysis and Trading' Curriculum. Recently I have reviewed three books that I feel are worthwhile "All About Market Indicators",Michael Sincere; "All About Market Timing" , Leslie N. Masonson; an Getting Started In Commodities,, George Fontanills. The first two are McGraw Hill, the last Wiley. If you have a Barnes and Noble around you may be able to peruse them while having a coffee_or my favorite buy a a cola and spike with some Canadian Whiskey.
Administration is negotiating for 'rights' to use specific material from the first two in our classes. A long term staple book for our commodity class "Trading In Commodity Futures", Frederick Horn and Victor Farah may go out of publication__so I am searching for a possible replacement.
Again Fred you are citing sources that have verified their sources__the RAT does not recognize that concept. It has become increasingly evident that his GED reqs never required a sourced term term paper.
Well Katy says you are a convicted pedophile_you cannot vote (we should all be happy about that) but as we see time and time again felons can get elected and even re-elected.

Dec still +1.77
Tax selling usually seems to run its course by the third week; especially by the mutual funds. At only a ridiculous 3000 threshold for retail investors__except for thinly traded issues I do not know if it has much impact. I wonder what the threshold would be if it had been indexed. But in a year of +25% returns many may what to try to mitigate capital gains.
As an E.A. and CPA I tend to interface with higher net worth individuals but mainly small business owners or professional partnerships. I do volunteer at a local university for the seasonal VITA program. This (2013) tax season we will increase our threshold for free assistance to 35,000 AGI. For my state we get alot of takers. It is surprising how many have employer stock plans and take advantage of 401K, 403s etc. It seems everybody has awoken to being leary of SS. We have had this one gal who works for one of the YUM brands restaurants___coming to us for years. Last year she had an accumulation of just over 3000 YUM shares. I talked to her about possible diversifying__she said "oh no; I am going to pledge this for a franchise purchase in another few years" Now that is impressive!!
He out grew the closet and is now locked in the basement. She pushes his daily allocation of ALPO under the door on a paper plate.
I figger KATY is eventually going to hunt him down and eliminate the rodent.
As I said on the AGNC board site an academic source__that is the exact def from the Oxford Economic Dictionary (considered the bible) in academia.
You are the biggest moron to ever post on any msg board.
Again the GED moron is proved to be a liar. The economic def of a recession is two or more consecutive qtrs of negative GDP. That is even the def your beloved annoited loser (either Karl or the big 'O') has to abide by. You frigging moronic pestilence.
I posted the results from the US yes (US moron) Bureau of Economic Analysis__anyone can go their and view the results__there was not two consecutive negative qtrs until late 2008.
Open a textbook_get a clue _leave your mammy(s) basement and visit a library. Or should we send Katy (she sure has assaulted you) to beat you. What did you do to her follow__her little boy home??
Oh__Oh get down on your knees__the annoited one has grabbed a microphone again.
Output prices are based on marginal cost plus profit. GED idiot. Only input commodities are traded on futures exchanges priced by supply and demand.
The RAT is incapable of dealing in facts or truth. Look at his ridiculous recession claims and comments on the AGNC board (esp after I posted the GDP results from The Bureau of Economic Analysis).
It never ceases to amaze how GED amatuers will continually try to alter academic definitions or research to suit their feeble minded opinions.
I feel certain bond offerings are better way to play JCP. They have offerings in the 2017, 2018 and 2020 end dated. Two of them have call protection. Depending on your order size you can get these for 78 to 81 cents on the dollar. That gives a yield to in the high 9s. They have longer dated offerings but buying extra time offers no additional protection from bankruptcy. You can always hedge with options against the equity. In fact spending part of that outsized interest yield on option protection may be a good strategy. The equity is surely a #$%$ shoot. It would get wiped in BK and otherwise will be diluted away with future offerings or grants to lenders.
I think we all have assumed that 666 and any other derivation is the Wal Rat.
Well the WalRat has never seen anything above AA(s). That is because even tho he has been injecting the [hormone treatments] he cannot physically acheive suckable derivations.
To anyone that thinks different: I have a vagina. The lowlife WalRat has never-never been in one except rape. I actually know this phagot. He is a conved (on probation) pedophile. He is such a sick person: he thinks he can re-intoduce hisself to society.
