my tune? not changed. the market DID NOT like the SO. it seldom does. that is what drove the PPS down. dilution is not a good thing. also, the market typically reacts in a positive fashion to a buyback whether you understand that or not.
it is true that I do indeed react to market trends and trade accordingly. of course. your style may be to buy and hold and there is nothing wrong with that.
my total stock portfolio has outperformed the DJI by 4.85% over the last 17 trading days and prior to that was more modest but again, over performing. if my stock portfolio underperforms than I would simply invest in mutual funds or seek the services of a broker. nonetheless, you shouldn't throw your stones this direction.
there are trading, investment, and saving strategies employed in the market. a buy and hold is more a savings strategy and that is fine. however, I think it wrong to shamelessly pump a position and try to squelch other opinions just because you hold it. that is disingenuous at best and often typical of a company shill.
quit being so nasty and passive aggressive.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
you would do better to focus on MAIN, your sole owning, and less on me.
and yeah, it is nice beating the DJI since i went all in during January 2009. run the numbers should you desire the larger picture.
my current cost basis on MAIN is $30.622 incompassing 3,120.6 shares. altho buying on dips and selling on highs, i have had a position with MAIN since July 2010 and have made far more in capital gains than with dividends. it's called trading. altho MAIN is a major holding for me, it is not the largest. i suspect MAIN is your only holding and that you are an employee. either that or you are simply married to this company. i see no other posting history for you other than MAIN.
you're a shill.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
i like the dividends too and don't see them being threatened. let's hope the dividend remains the same but the yield drops to 3%. that happens when share price rises and dividends remain constant. after all, our yield is determined from purchase price vs. current trading price.
i truly hope this does indeed become your favorite. it is nice having monthly payouts. i get that with a REIT which has a 13% yield but i am too chicken to put too much into that as i consider it highly speculative.
unhappy with the way MAIN performed on the 1st when market leaped but noted all dividend stocks took a hit (esp utilities). driven by interest rate and inflation fears. oh well... am in for the long run here.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
PPS was higher on previous earnings and now lower on current and projected earnings. will be tough to equal earnings GNRC had after Sandy. also, Kohler is becoming a major player in generators. competition heating up and Generac losing market share. the run is done....
Sentiment: Strong Sell
vikki, here is a post by you that, as usual, is anti-BP. however, your topic has nothing to do with the spill but rather, just throwing another stone at BP. it is obvious that you despise the company but it becomes clearer that your vendetta is not driven by the spill. the spill was simply an opportunity for you to defame BP.
you've admitted you don't short the stock and that, other than COP, are not an investor in the markets. so what happened between you and BP. were you an ex-employee terminated for cause? were you denied a BP credit card? did a BP manager find someone younger and kick you to the curb?
what drives your obsession?
PPS up strong at +2.82% today in a down market. 110k shares traded by 11:00 EDT. that exceeds avg daily volume by 14k shares. that is a lot of activity. other than some verbiage from Zacks i am not seeing any news. next earnings report not due for a month. an interesting day. i am wondering if the breakout is looming. it is overdue and should have happened on the heels of last earnings report.
i am betting that Aug earnings report beats YOY with their new revenue generated by acquisition of SweepEx and TurfEx. this PLOW position is pushing my stock portfolio very nicely. the dividends are great too.
despite recent run in stock price, i still rate PLOW as a Strong Buy. once resistance is broken at $20 PPS, we should see another 10% run.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
interesting. are you cost averaging? i can't follow that logic unless you are realizing dividends along the way.
what was PPS at when you plunged?
Sentiment: Strong Sell
AYR is in the Trading Companies & Distributors industry. Is that whole industry getting hit or just the plane leasing component? AYR, AER, FLY all getting pounded today and AYR and FLY have been spiraling down for a couple months. their yield is not covering capital loss. airlease, mainman, any comments?
i just did. they are very impressive and just upped their dividend by 10% now representing an annualized run rate of $1.10/share. nice. FSC also provides up to a 5% discount on newly-issued shares purchased through their DRIP (provided that shares are not issued at less than net asset value per share).
i see they are externally managed which is always a turnoff for me. however, 198 institutional owners represent 34.21% of outstanding shares whereas MAIN has 145 at 23.98%. i like to see a 50 - 50 but that is atypical of a BDC of which they both are.
FSC is not fly by night (neither is MAIN). they just won a prestigious award for Senior Lending Firm of the Year. also take note of huge volume yesterday probably attributed to news on dividend increase. PPS was up .63% yesterday in a beaten down market where MAIN took a -1.24% drop. FSC up again today along with MAIN.
these guys are interesting. i put down for 1500 shares at $10.11 PPS and am already down. lol.
with their history of a relatively recent secondary offering, i am leery and so will consider this holding as speculative and monitor closely.
thanks for the tip.....!!!!!!!!!!!!
stan, thx for the reply. altho their metrics are good, i am quite concerned with the downward trend to this sector but will hold. i sold off all FLY a month ago at 14.16 PPS and am not planning on returning. i didn't like their secondary and their inaction afterwards.
will still stick with AYR but not increase my position.
vikki, you are a pure unadulterated hardup moron. i have no clue who blimey1960 is but he isn't me so you are wrong on this one as well.
don't ascribe all posters who counter your messages to me. no one can stand you other than those few you profess your love to, like Tommy Chop Chop. lol.
i give you credit for not hoping against hope. as posted, i last exited GNRC at $55.55 PPS. had i held, i'd have been down 18.74%. as much as i love making capital gains, i also feel quite well when i dodge a bullet.
i detest holding a position and then seeing a company issue a secondary offering. GNRC did that to their shareholders. a bitter pill. i then did some cost averaging and bought additional shares, made back the loss and took exponential profits. did quite well with 4 total buys but will not buy back in.
GNRC hit it big after Sandy and speculation drove share price into an over bought territory. altho i now believe GNRC to be oversold, in the absence of dividends, with no more special dividends in the foreseeable future, risk outweighs the reward. what is a double killer is the market hits record highs while GNRC tanks.
Kohler is making a big push in the generator market and they are grabbing market share from GNRC. unless there is a catastrophic weather event, there is little to push any buying.
took cash from GNRC selloff and put it into PLOW (Douglas Dynamics). they are the industry leaders in pickup snow plow equipment and recently acquired a "summer" industry in spreaders. they are HQ'ed in Milw. i began buying them at 13.35 and most recently at $17.60. a buying opportunity today as they are "down" to $18.48. there is still a lot of run room there and next earnings report should be great again.
just a recommendation and suggestion on how to recoup a loss. working for me....
good luck to all.
i apologize to BP investors who monitor this board for cluttering it with another post that counters vikkihater. still there are potential investors who, when considering buying into BP, often access this site for opinions from other current investors. i know i do when before i make a buy. unfortunately they will find vikkihater attacking and defaming BP while she continues her vendetta and obsession.
when reading posts, it is beneficial to know who you are dealing with. here is Vikki's latest post as she follows me around and goes directly to her credibility. weird, huh? she posted it on the AYR board...

stan, beware nadsmis. He is a virulent racist who will stop at no end to denigrate. He stalks people who challenge him, too. Oh, and he has a little baby pennis, which is probably to root cause for his dysfunctional menacing style.
