    regular paying dividends would help. can't count on special dividends and it looks as if none are in the works.

    a stock buyback program would help but that doesn't appear likely.

    not issuing secondary offerings would help. GNRC did that once and may again. always a stock killer.

    i made some nice money on trading GNRC but currently have zero holdings. i always monitor positions i have liquidated to determine if i made the right move. since my last GNRC, PPS down over 15%. Glad i got out.

    until management makes some moves that show that they are shareholder-friendy, i will not open another position here. if i still held anything, i would sell.

    Sentiment: Sell

    lol. you're too much.

    a friend mentioned this to me and i thought it appropriate for you. you recall how you defended the MAIN secondary? you posted time and again how great that move was for MAIN and shareholders despite Mr. Market demonstrating otherwise.

    do you understand why buybacks are as beneficial to shareholders as an increase in dividends? sometimes buybacks are MORE attractive than a dividend increase. buybacks are shareholder friendly and welcomed by investors resulting in PPS increase. buybacks also increase a shareholders ownership percentage and are the OPPOSITE of secondary offerings which dilute shareholders value and the result is Mr. Market doesn't like that and sells off. PPS drops.

    mayhaps that will help you understand?

    oh, by-the-by, your passive aggression is becoming more overt. like the pumping so i copied and pasted this for you as well...
    passive aggressive
    A defense mechanism that allows people who aren't comfortable being openly aggressive get what they want under the guise of still trying to please others. They want their way, but they also want everyone to still like them.

    Now be nice and enjoy the wonderful week the market has brought us. i'm loving every dime of it.

    according to SEC Form 4 Filing for MAIN, the bulk of selling was indeed David Magdol for 2 sells of 50,000 shares each transaction. SEC lists a third over last 3 months but I didn't see it. that 3rd sell was only 300 shares.

    May 20th direct purchase was Michael Appling for 16,500 shares so that showed there and yet net shares sold were over 55,000 shares.

    as for the pumping - you do. the PPS continues to erode. you simply can not deny that. while you may, or may not, be a company shill you certainly employ a lot of passive agressive baloney.

    what is your take on Raymond James outfit that was principle underwriter for the secondary? You don't believe there was a conflict of interest and poor ethics that they upgraded MAIN prior to SO? again, you have to admit that they were at least wrong and that they profited by doing the bulk of stock underwriting. handsomely i am sure. I don't believe in coincidences when it comes to the markets. That was certainly illustrated by after market selloff to MAIN stock the night prior to SO public announcement. You did not see that?

    The SEC does a poor job in policing the markets. They often have to rely on the FBI who have limited resources when investigating stock market fraud. That is the primary reason someone like Benie Madoff got away with as much as he did for as long as he did. The Enron fiasco was worse and never should have gotten close to being as bad as it was. That is the tip of the iceberg. I don't believe for a New York minute that there is not illegal and unethical behavior going on in public companies.

    yeah, that WAS some good stuff. i see the market wasn't too impressed tho.

    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.

    Sentiment: Sell

    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.

    It is pitiful what mankind is doing to our environment. still in all, long after mankind has extinguished itself, the earth will continue to go through period of warming and cooling. that is just how it was prior to us and will be how it will be after us.

    for future generations, i pray that we minimize our influence.

    your reference to Hitler is idiotic. you trivialize that travesty. how dare you??

  • 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

    vikki, you have posted 21 times in the 7 days including Saturday and Sunday. WOW!!! Your obsession is worsening.

    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.
