They recommend 1 stock per month and generally follow it for 2 +/- years.
As name implies, they seek 'special' situations.
Their track record is pretty good.
Fidelity Analysts -- "Very Bullish"
SHLO and their products are here to stay.
TIME is their September pick this month.
Is anyone out there??
Buyers are crashing the gate.
Why? They see value and growth.
A robust dividend that seems secure surely helps.
A few 'buy' recommdations by analysts doesn't hurt.
SApple Hospitality REIT Inc: "I think these are good. I think that this thing yields 7 percent, and that's probably wrong. The stock should be higher and the yield lower. This group has been crushed today, I think it's opportunity."
All the 'bad news' was out.
Good news -- GCA is poised for next step in their evolution.
In at 5.37. See you next year.
Bag - agree totally.
I subscribe to Forbes newsletter-your analysis mirrors their view. I waited and am in at 5.37.
Expecting 8-9 in a year. Check my other posts. Most mirror the Forbes picks. Not all winners!
NYU -agree totally re: Lerner's slimy sales tactics. There are indeed many folks who bought too much.
I hope they got out at/near tender.
But, for the others (which is likely to be the majority of holders) I believe the sensible thing to do is collect the 6+ dividend and wait for the dust to settle.
For every seller there is a buyer. The buyers see something.
Many APLE investors hold too much of this one stock.
If you do and are comfortable with a 6+% yield, HOLD.
There will be plenty of time to trim your holdings after the dust settles.
APLEs portfolio is strong and the finances behind the properties supports the dividend.
2004 -- if the transfer was automated ( ie. Initiated by you to your account thru Fidelity's web site), there should be NO DLA fees. If they try, inform Fidelity rep and they will either reimburse you if the charge was legitimate or make DLA reverse the fee if it was improper. Let us know how it goes.
It's time to dump DLA. They offer nothing to APLE holders except fees ($35 /year for the 'privledge' of having a money market account, $60 per trades, $70 account closing fees). This board can serve a useful purpose for those Lerner clients who feel stuck. Inaction is not a wise strategy -- especially when it costs you $$.
Many customer friendly brokerages (eTrade, Fidelity, Vanguard,etc) offer a range of incentives to move assets to them. It's simple and painless. I moved three accounts out of Lerner and it was all done on line. The receiving brokerage will be more than happy to help.
Was reimbursed the $110 that the leaches at Lerner charged for each account.
Many of the firm will also waive trading fees and offer free trades on their ETFs and mutual funds.
It's easy to do nothing -- Lerner's trolls are betting that's what we'll do.
If you have moved your APLE stock from Lerner to a more trustworthy brokerage house -- Congratulations!
If you don't want to automatically purchase more APLE. every month when dividends are paid, make sure your new home account doesn't default to "Reinvest Dividends".
Many folks use the Reinvest feature to accumulate more shares of companies they own without any brokerage fees. I suspect most folks on this board have enough APLE.
