Real company with real assets and yet people put their money in pie in the sky companies. Thank heavens most people are not rational. The selloff in utilities and reits has been something to take advantage of. I don't see any reason why i will be selling this anytime in the near future so gltya.
Even better today off of 40. 36 is next support after 40 and 30 should be a very very strong support if 36 breaks. HCP would be netting about 7% at that level with current debt levels and no growth.
Someone said that labor is one's life work stored in money. Money is devalued by cemtral bankers. Central bankers devalue on's life work. Couldn't say it better myself.
I was in some of Kinder's rollups before they went c corp. RK has really used debt well so far but after he bought what I had I was too skeptical to go into kinder. I was in the drillers when they paid huge divies and got nicked on the way out as others saw dayrates drop faster than i. Hcp's assets are probably the best you can get in a reit if you are just looking at the underlying assets and what you are paying. Ohi bought some nice assets lately from aviv but they paid mucho dinero imho. If the gov't has to cut back on payments hcp should do much better than an ohi imho.
I view kmi like sdrl. It is nice until it isn't anymore. I was in esv sdrl rig and ne. Dumped epd too. I have a rule ... If you can't sleep well at night you should sell it. Too much debt makes me restless so i hit the sell button on everything that was overly leveraged. Until i see a chk sell of all its assets or declare bankruptcy i am not sure when the price of oil will back up. Reckless money makes investment decisions difficult.
A railroad is probably a safer investment than a tech. Buffett 101. We all make mistakes that do not become evident until after the fact.
What do u suggest for investing mr. Gloomy? Anyone can talk #$%$. Tell us how you are going to make ur fortune. Most of us here have already made ours.
The thumbs down is from the communist party members of the BRK board .... obviously. They should all just move to Venezuela so they can see their future.
It is real estate. Specific use. Gov't is always trying to shake everyone down. They are worse than Don Corleon.
Autos and Real estate. If you told me sales were going to pick up i would have taken the other side ... and been wrong again. WEB still has it. Screw up selling KFT then gets it back cheap with HNZ deal. UCMTSU. Rails are going to bounce back in 2nd quarter now so looks like smooth sailing for a little bit. Headwinds are reinvesting rates as shown by TRV. GLTY.
Maybe take some off the table and take the wife out to dinner and just enjoy the moment. When I lose money it is not so much the money but the experiences that it buys that bothers me. I have a longer run than you since I am just a bit over 50. After I sold my business I thought l would be on easy street. That was before the FED turned on the spigots and forced me back into equities. I would sleep better in treasuries if the losers running our country would balance our budget and act responsible. I refuse to buy treasuries (directly) any more. The worst company is probably still better run than anything that comes out of DC and it is no fun playing last man standing. Besides AAPL most corporate profits are deteriorating if not for financial engineering games. BRK may be a bit overpriced here but what isn't overpriced at the moment? Tough market and much to think about. At least you have someone with a good head on his shoulders running BRK. FYI - I still make careless mistakes (or unforced errors as WEB would call them). GLTY and I wish you well. Maybe WEB will pull another rabbit out of his hat this weekend.
It is all BS. Just buy good companies at reasonable prices and forget about all the noise. If a stock gets run up too much take some off.
What difference does it make? Ltcg are taxed about the same as qualified divs. It is currently a nonissue or am i missing something?
