    vikki, you would do yourself a favor if you would read again stoolpie's post for you. try to read it with an open mind. his verbiage, altho pointed, was actually quite kind. you should take it to heart. he is spot on.

    try to also understand davenport's posts for you. daven's approach with you is one of logic and you would do well to pay heed.

    gstock's post is quite succinct and most likely the easiest for you to comprehend.

    after reading again their posts, mull them over. do a wee bit of soul searching and perhaps come to the conclusion that they have taken the time to do you a favor. look at the preponderance of "thumbs down" votes on your innumerable posts and attempt to understand what that means.

    leave this Yahoo Finance board message site to traders and investors and then take that time savings to go work on yourself.

    i have known others of your ilk and i shun them. the folks who may actually believe your rhetoric are typically not found here. other than a couple desperate loose leaves you've dredged up (Tommy Chop Chop, Stevie Novak, wintoat) you have swayed no one. It isn't that readers of these message boards don't understand you - they do. It is rather that the vast majority are informed, educated, intelligent and therefore successful enough to have the means to invest in America.

    i hope you have an epiphany and make some positive changes before your clock winds down too much further.

    your pal,
    Nad

    Screwed--Apple Not Buying KOSS

    by appletonrocks May 8, 2014 8:12 PM
    nadsmis nadsmis May 27, 2014 2:18 PM Flag

    No one will make a move on KOSS ownership. very small cap stock controlled by private family. this stock will never operate as a typical publically held company. Koss family needs to feel important and that is why Michael Koss was not booted out. simply not enough other shareholders and no institutional holdings to speak of. Management is obviously very poor and marketing is a joke.

    in the meantime, Koss family still believe the American national sport is polo and that the top 10 hits are by Ludwig von Beethoven and Johannes Brahms. they make the fatal mistake of trying to educate and direct headphone consumers instead of getting in touch and learning from the buying public. unfortunately i do not see any future for KOSS. That is too bad as they were once an outstanding company and on cutting edge. they are now decades behind and have little brand identity.

    Now things have gotten so bad that they are cutting their dividend. what is inconceivable is that again, in last quarter, they blame the poor European market. They have worn that out....

    i agree. great product with great potential. however, current PPS reflects that and unless GNRC begins to declare a regular stock dividend, or unless there are takeover rumors, i don't see much opportunity. I have been in and out of GNRC 3 times and also benefited from the special dividends. now, unless PPS reaches low 40's, i construe a GNRC investment as dead money. share price should drift right along with the market.

    maybe another hurricane?

    incidently, i took my last sale of GNRC and put 60% of it on PLOW Douglas Dynamics. Like GNRC, a relatively recent IPO, terrific earnings, large market share, good product and brand identity, recent acquisitions, easy to predict. the difference? PLOW yield at 5% and increasing.

    downward trend...

    nadsmis nadsmis May 27, 2014 3:02 PM Flag

    airlease, sorry i did not see your response before today. i am still holding AYR at 3.6% my stock portfolio and, even with today's nice run, am still down over 9%. not good. i am not a fan of REITS despite nice yield. I have only one (OAKS) and that is a speculative holding with terrific yield and has surprisingly returned me 8% capital gains - should i liquidate.

    rather than REITS i put down big into a BDC (MAIN Capital). that has been bumpy and i have seen some questionable activity there but love the dividend and PPS is running well, to slightly outperforming DJI.

    i remain totally divested of all FLY. Don't see as much opportunity with them as I do AYR. i continue to believe AYR a good value stock but will not increase my holdings here. just hope to recover my losses....

    oh Vikki, Vikki,

    violate the rules?? Too funny. I would think one rule though would be not to go trolling for companionship on Yahoo finance boards as you have done repeatably. Too pathetic. However, would you like me to copy and paste?

    No, I don't wage war on women. Quite the opposite. And minorities? No.

    However, I will not suffer fools. You will never understand as you lack that capacity. You are what we refer to as a low-life.

  • nadsmis nadsmis May 28, 2014 6:04 PM Flag

    Hello Bill,

    My post from April 28 regarding GLNG... it worked out. GLNG up 7.52% today. A nice shot. Like crude production, Liquified Natrl Gas is very competitive. However, the demand for both crude and LNG will not soon lessen.

    While having a presence with Conoco COP, I still bet heavy on BP. BP and GLNG both return a great yield, both have low P/E, both are shareholder friendly and both remain under valued. You seem a good chap and I suggest you may want to diversify your oil holdings a bit. Do a bit of DD on GLNG.

    I have found retirement suits me. Loving every minute of it....

    unfortunately, i agree with you. PLOW isn't even coming close to keeping up with the DJI. I can't understand it either as it is Best in Class, great yield, terrific last Q with super earnings, brand name with high market share. however, the P/E at 24.15 current indicates this stock is rather pricey. What i don't get is it should be due to recent performance and projected outlook.

    i have 20.4% of my stock portfolio here. that is 8 points higher than my typical rule of thumb being max of 12%. Still, i broke that rule with Apple and was handsomely rewarded and I expect the same thing here. little risk, little reward.

    altho i do not intend to increase this position, i will continue to hold and expect the market to catch up. my cost basis is $16.03 PPS so i am certainly not unhappy. just not satisfied.

    vikki, do you now try to solicit anti PB sentiment by appealing to gender? "Every woman knows what I mean."

    You may be female but you are no woman and certainly no lady.

    Anyway, what's it to you? You've no monetary investment. The spill is years past and the cleanup concluded long ago. Gawd, it is summer. the weather is beautiful. save you pennies, buy a bus ticket and take a vacation. Find something meaningful for your life and move on.

    You have been exposed time and again on this board. Your credibility is zero. Go chase GM or a tobacco company like MO. They have done more harm and are responsible for more fatalities than BP ever did.

    It is quite obvious that you have a vendetta for BP. For some reason, that you have not shared, you harbor huge resentments. Let it go. Realize this, resentments are like drinking poison and expecting someone else to die.

    Leave this BP board to investors and traders. Stop being a hater and get lost.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • I am a major investor in MAIN. I enjoy the monthly dividends and yield but am struggling with the capital loss due to drop to PPS over the last 3 months plus. There appears to be a pattern as MAIN is underperforming the markets - the DJI in particular.

    in the last 6 months, insiders have net sales of over 170,000 shares. that equates to a drop of 4.1%. no matter what spin a pumper may put on that, it is alarming.

    prior Q to last Q, institutional selling is also alarming at over 300,000 shares net. again, alarming. that amounts to a drop of 2.65%.

    What i personally find distasteful is that the bulk of insider selling occurred prior to the secondary offering. They knew, and they dumped. Since the secondary, PPS is down 7.2% while the DJI (as a benchmark) has reached record highs several times.

    Furthermore, PPS is down a horrendous 12% in last 3 months (since FEB.24). Again, this occured while the market performed nicely.

    A particular poster continues to put spins on these negative facts. While i too play MAIN long, i just cannot let those spins go unchallenged. My concern is a company shill.

    Lastly, as another posted pointed out, MAIN received an analyst upgrade a couple months back. that analyst was Raymond James Co. What is MOST disturbing there, stock went up on the upgrade, the small investors like us bought into it, the Secondary Offering was then announced, after insider selling occurred, and the PPS (no surpise) dropped like a rock.. To add injury to insult, that analyst was the Raymond James Company who became the principle underwriter for the Secondary Offering.

    For now, I remain long. I even bought additional shares after the dust settled from the SO. My thought is that the worst was behind us and that the raised capital would produce equal to, or greater earnings. However, I must admit, a secondary objective was simply to cost average.

    I know that pumper will respond with a spin but the facts are facts. Data taken from Yahoo Finance

    Peter Evensen Needs to Move the TNK Needle

    by pb_harris4 Jun 1, 2014 3:07 PM
    nadsmis nadsmis Jun 2, 2014 3:16 PM Flag

    hello msnapp. just checking in. i like to keep up with positions that i no longer hold as i balance them against the ones i do. i try to see if i've made good/bad moves and that maybe i need to reverse some. in the case of TNK looks like the move was good as i liquidated at avg 3.92 PPS. with today's price at 3.52 looks like i dodged a 10.2% capital loss plus additional gains to higher dividend with proceeds from TNK sales.

    always befuddles me when investors attack anyone who posts anything different that what they want to hear. you would think they want to, and need to hear opinions that do NOT mimik their own. few things are worse for investors than group think - the exception being those that blindly believe in earnings/conference calls.

    your posts, while contrary, have relevance and are based on sound reasoning and logic.

    hope all goes well for you.

    just checking in for an evaluation to determine whether my GNRC liquidation was a good move. with current PPS at 48.74 it looks like a solid move. saved myself a 12.3% capital loss in an up market. that is very significant.

    not hearing anything on a special dividend either.

    i know shareholders who read this board won't like this message but, I am glad i pulled the plug here. took proceeds from 3 GNRC sells and am enjoying a very nice dividend yield - one that is quarterly scheduled.

    Why would anyone ride this pony? current price reflects analyst's projections. PPS not built on past performance.
