    Chances of seeing the 1's

    oh baloney, August. you just don't get it, do you. there is a good reason you've no cash. you never will admit your poor decision to Hold and your poor advice to Buy. Had i followed your advice i'd have a 40% plus capital loss on top of opportunity costs.

    pumpers, just like bashers, need to be exposed. shame on you for trying to mislead small investors.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • MIFI's BOD has just announced that since they cancelled the last earnings report, since they issue zero dividends, since key employees are leaving, and since the stock price has plummeted unabated for weeks that they have reached an executive decision. That decision is that they will have a secondary offering at $0.15 PPS to all current holders of common stock. The idea is that this will bolster the share price as outlook is now at $0.02 per share. Pumpers such as August1552 will be given additional incentive to continue to post positive dribble by giving them options equating to $0.01 PPS.

    Many thanks to good ole August.

    TNK Is a Screaming Buy Here

    you've been singing that song and pumping along while strong selling and significant beatdown to PPS continues. IMO, and in the market's opinion, TNK is looking over valued.

    stock worth $18

    i don't think anyone classifies PLOW as a "go-go high flying stock". i think PLOW is relatively stable but has little upside. from personal experience, i also believe PLOW is losing market share to TTC/Boss and that Henderson won't offset those lost sales.

    expecting past performance to be a precursor of future PPS performance is a common error. the markets are predicated on current worth and future performance. Janik himself cautions about earnings continuing to do well as past winters were exceptionally helpful and shouldn't be expected. (i paraphrase)

    i hoped for capital gains since last ER and they haven't been forthcoming. just prior to next month's ER, I will dump.

    all things being equal in the market, PLOW is a $20 stock.

    that's certainly interesting. what's your take on that? my guess is a pumper (maybe August) opening a new I.D. so that he can give his other ID's a thumbs up vote and writing posts that agree with his other ID.

    how low do they go?

    BOOYAH? That's funny. No wonder August is continuing to pump as MIFI continues to get beat down, August is a Jim Cramer follower. That explains a lot.

    I've now avoided a 43.52% capital loss since i liquidated MIFI position at 5.17 PPS. That's when August continued to rate MIFI as a Strong Buy.

    No, i don't short MIFI. Shorting is a game i don't play. Nonetheless, i trade 40% of my stock porfolio and have treat the remaining 60% as investment and income producing equities. MIFI is certainly not an income stock as yield is zero.

    Anyone reading this board should be aware of shameless pumpers such as August. Take any recommendations from him with a pillar of salt.

    well, at least one voted. lol.

  • they both slammed Cometstorm and me when we sold. Both were rude and crude. Wonder why they are so silent now?

    i seldom, if ever, wish ill will on other traders or investors. however, both those 2 were over the top and deserve their fate.

    Don't think so. I just wonder what took so long to downgrade? No catalyst out there to reclaim lost territory. GNRC peaked after Hurricane Sandy and i sold shortly after at 55.55 PPS. While that principle has made me money and dividends elsewhere, i dodged a 34% capital loss.

    GNRC is not shareholder friendly and will not ever release another special dividend to shareholders. They also have shown zero interest in establishing a normal common dividend. There was no incentive to hold after the share price peaked. I sold off and so did a host of others, including institutional buyers.

    Kohler has a beautiful line of standby generators and has taken market share and that has cut into earnings as well.

    Short of a natural unforeseen catastrophe, what is the incentive? IMO, none.

    Time to BUY BDCs?

    by thewisejman Jul 2, 2015 10:30 AM
    nadsmis nadsmis Jul 2, 2015 1:12 PM Flag

    it is tough to make a buck in the markets lately. the DJI is down 3.2% from its record high of 18312 on May 19 close. with the Greek fiasco and Portugal, Spain, Italy and now Puerto Rico in trouble, that shakes the economic community. the impending Fed move adds consternation and concern to the markets as well.

    i have 15 open positions and am relatively diversified. i am also sitting on about a 35% cash position and will hold to that until Q3 this year. i am willing to miss distributions and dividends in order to reduce exposure to a volatile market.

    within my 15 positions, 2 are BDC's - MAIN and ARCC. all things considered, they are doing very well in holding their share price while producing good yields. i also hold USB and GS which also help absorb market dips.

    IMO, BDC's and banks are the place to be. energy stocks (esp oil related) are out of favor for good reasons tech is risky and produces small yields, industrials are dangerous in that they appear topped out and transportation will continue to be spotty at best. i agree that most income stocks such as utilities, REITs, and most MLP's are in harms way come Fed hikes. what is important for investors and traders is that financials and BDC's can preserve earnings as they are able to adjust their lending rates proportionately.

    while my portfolio, just as the DJI (my benchmark) has taken a hit, i have nicely over performed the markets in general thanks to holdings in BDC's and banks. i also hold CME as a related position.

    to your question, Time to buy BDC's? Yes. if we buy anything, BDC's and banks are the safest bet. the primary reason i don't buy more now is that i believe even that market segment will also take some sell off until we are out of the woods again. even within a bull market such as we've enjoyed over the last several years there will be dips, pullbacks, and corrections. overall, stocks still remain the place to be and BDC's appear are a good bet.

    by the time you see an upswing you will have lived through several downswings. an old adage... "Cheap stocks can always get cheaper".

    i got out at 5.17$ and avoid a capital loss of 40.4%. there is no catalyst in sight and IMO, MIFI slips further. the only time i wait is when i am realizing distributions and you will never see that here.

    Wrong. You incur a loss if you hold and stock drops as you have less capital. I think what you mean is that you have no realized losses until you sell.

  • nadsmis nadsmis Jun 29, 2015 7:42 PM Flag

    my timing was fortuitous in that i sold off 40% of my equity holdings in anticipation of those Greeks sucking everyone down with them. remained focused on banks (which got hit) BDC's with ETP being the sole partnership investment. no REIT's anymore and no utilities in expectation of further market slip with Feds due to raise their rates.

    i would buy back into ETP but will observe until i see the market begin to reset. that won't be until Feds move and Greece plays out while keeping a close eye on Portugal, Spain, N. Ireland, and Italy. may miss the bottom but i try to limit losses and reap what benefits there are upswings. ah, the life of a trader with a 60% investor mentality.

    good luck....

    BDC's will be impacted by Greece worries and will also hit the bank sector. IMO. I think there will be down volume on both sectors while we see what the fallout will be. in the meantime there will be more selling than buying generated from fear. nothing new there....
