I posted the PLOW message. I had trimmed 33% of FLY and 50% of AAPL. PLOW earnings report next monday the 10th. I am banking on them easily beating analyst expecations. Only marginally happy I didn't liquidate FLY as Earnings report left me luke warm and I am simply going to hold the balance. We will see what Monday CC brings for PLOW. I am obviously betting on PLOW to outperform FLY PPS. Trading ahead of Monday's CC not making me feel too confident but, I am holding.
I broke 2 of my investment rules on that PLOW purchase. Exceeded my 12% holding and bought into a postion with an incredibly high P/E. Going on what I literally know vs. what the metrics and analysts predict.
We shall see.
Handle yourself? I bet you do. lol. Stick with Stevey altho there are laws about old women and underage boys. I agree tho, you two seem to have much in common which means very little in life. Go snap him up you old grizzly.
oh, now I see what drdisc and blackjack were talking about. lol. Vikkihater has a suitor. Too funny.
Stevey boy, have you no self respect? You are the type that she recruits. You must be just as desperate...
It was ugly but, I had to do what had to be. I don't think he will post much any more. If ever. Sorry. I know he meant a lot to Vikkihater the spinster troll. Going forward, I believe all the wintoats will be gone. Now, if only Vikkihater would follow that lead. Would be nice to have a civilized BP board. I've 22 outright positions and none of those boards are like this BP board. There are intelligent and relevant issues being discussed which have impact on investment decisions.
oh well, at least wintoat bit the dust. (I think, I hope)
YOU call BP phoney? lol. You are not an investor, you are a fake. You use the Yahoo Finance board as a tool to fill your empty god forsaken life. BP will defend herself in a court of law as well as with her competition. They've learned to be as defensive and aggressive in the courts as they are in the gulf and in the fields.
Oh, I must say, I love your attempts at romance on the Yahoo Finance message boards. How desperate. Let me share your post today with your "readers"...

Very nice answers. FYI, the path to my heart goes through the BP corporate criminal trial and story. I suggest you review posts on that board, and do your own research on their ecocide. If you agree with me on that - and I know you will - your rewards will exceed your wildest dreams.
Now get busy little man. I want to see you chime in with your thoughts on that forum (that should agree with mine). Some thumbs up would be good too.
Just cuz I am not interested in an old, big mouth, sleazy, hardup spinster desperately seeking males on a finance board? Haha. Give me a break you nasty ho.
wow. the market closed up 1.41% DJI and SPH down 3.33%. that is a 4.74% one day swing. no way does that dividend make up for that. no way. a company with this kind of yield should at least hold their own and SPH acted like a pig. On my short list.
just an fyi... I like to think I outperform the DJI and track accordingly. If I don't beat the average, I may as well be into more mutual funds. The NYSE ran 17% gain in 2013. a yield of 7.5% is nothing compared to that. nothing.
This holding held back my portfolio on a great day in the markets hence the name... pig.
are you kidding? a REIT (OAKS) at 13.27%, SPH at 8.26%, a BDC (MAIN Capital) at 5.69%, PLOW at 5.11% to name a few. I have positions in all of them and other than SPH, have seen nice appreciation to capital. I am glad I trimmed FLY by 33%. Will continue to sell into strength ahead of earnings report.
my cost basis is 45.57. The dividend barely makes up for the loss to capital making it dead money in my book. PPS down 1.4% today while DJI is up 1.34%. Making good yield on a REIT (OAKS of 13.27%), a BDC (MAIN Capital of 5.69%), PLOW of 5.11%, NSH of 7.11%, and a host of others including growth stocks such as FB which currently is at 41.15% gain to capital. My portfolio yields an avg of 4.05% including growth stocks. Needless to say, I am unhappy with SPH and it defies my logic. Why is this stock a laggard?
This position is under consideration for me. Not interested in breaking even.
OAKS is a miniscule holding for me. a few grand. Dividend reinvestment on a lark after a minimum of DD. A secondary offering had my interst though. Looking for some news on that.
I had a position a couple years back and did ok with SPH. Started another position when the first news began to break on the huge run up to propane costs. Despite the huge demand and the huge increases to propane price, the PPS languishes. What don't I know? Why isn't PPS rising accordingly? The DD i did indicated SPH was oversold and overdue for a good run. This is perplexing. Next earnings report not until May. Wondering if i should liquidate....
the time to buy an up-and-comer is prior to too many analysts grading. Once it hits all their radar, big gains are usually over. Always nice to be ahead of them. Market Edge has TNK rated as under accumulation / buy. They are quantitative driven. Ford Equity has TNK a hold and they are always conservative and behind. TheStreet rates TNK a sell and that is usually a good sign for me. They rate after the pain has hit. The big analysts like S&P Capital IQ don't yet know TNK exists. Once they do, the word is out and you miss the boat.
TNK raising some eyebrows now. This week I expect to see some profit taking but the bounce back will more than compensate. Barring any unknown catastrophies, this should be a good ride for another 3 - 5 quarters.
Hi Joe. I coudn't agree more and glad I bought back in before the last earnings report. Nice to play a stock like this. A well run, new publicly held company in a tremendous growing market. Next year I am razing an old lake cottage and building new. You can bet I will have a standby Generac unit. Was going to go propane but sure haven't liked that market lately. Will probably go natural gas.
Hey, here is a piece of info I just passed on to a couple jet leasing investors. If you like GNRC, go check out PLOW. You can play this the same way as GNRC. PLOW is Douglas Dynamics the snow plow and salt spreader people. They simply have not been able to keep up with demand despite 2 full time shifts and inordinate amounts of overtime. Have seen innumberable pickup trucks on the road this winter outfitted in their product. Western and Blizzard being 2 product lines. Thier dividend yields 5.1% and, like Generac, came out with their IPO a couple years ago. I just maxed out my holdings there last week. Next earnings report is due March 10. Do your DD and check them out... You play GNRC, you are gonna want to play PLOW the same way.
