Yeah john.matt - I was there with you on TSRX. Tetraphase seems stronger to me too. I agree with you 100%. Betting on a wild ride.. We shareholders have already benefited greatly from TTPH. I am really Happy for all the people who will some day benefit from what appears to be a strong and effective drug.
I have not seen this #. However, their last 2 qtrs were very big beats. Listening to the last conf. call is what made me buy more. You could hear the excitement and pride in their voices. Not something you hear in many calls. If we don't get another div. / distribution increase and earnings beat I will be SHOCKED!!! Best of luck!!
hang in there tee_leaves --- you know this sell off has NOTHING to do with the co. If earnings aren't really good and we don't get a dividend increase I will be shocked.
Thanks for your input - very knowledgeable and helpful.... Thanks.. Yea, every MLP I own is a blood bath too. Holding steady - taking the dividend and hoping for better days. All the best to you.
jrad 52.... am I buying?? good question... not buying any new stocks at this time...Because of the way the overall market is acting. Scarey... If some of my existing stocks continue to drop I will add to them... Thanks for your input on SXCP... I am guessing you are in this stock... Are you satisfied with it?? It has actually held up over the past few days ---- comparatively speaking..
you are correct. after last earnings volume really spiked. stayed high for several days. DKL has held up well (until the last 2 out of 3 days) considering the pressure from oil prices and the broad sell off of the market.. In the long haul I believe DKL will be fine. Earnings should be good.. If it goes down a little more - I will buy more. Best of luck
Thank you lunco... Best wishes to you and us all. Thank you for the time you have taken in response to my posts and others. You are appreciated.
Thank you lunco for your input....I totally agree with you regarding earnings being of greater importance and I too am in this for the long term income. Guess I am just letting the jitters of others worry me about the change in interest rates... Rates have been low for so long I am worried that people in these types of stocks will panic and run when rates start to rise. I think those jitters are already showing in this stock... I believe in the fundamentals of AI. I know I should relax. Thanks again..
Stoxx--- thanks for the advice re: DKL...You are probably correct re: the taking of my profit... However, I am of the age where I am trying to position myself for the "Golden Years". Love the dividend here and think this stock has more upside. (of course if I am wrong it wouldn't be the first time).. I am buying and selling some stocks - but the ones I like with good dividends I am holding... (I stay at Black Jack tables too long also)... Really liked their last conf. call. Best of luck to you.
lunco, I totally agree with you regarding the fundamentals of the co. and the security of the dividend. I think because all the talk lately has been about int. rates that AI share price may be in jeopardy as it is lumped with the REITS. Guess I am just VERY uneasy with it falling below the latest offer price and staying there. Lunco - in you opinion how badly will AI be hurt once int. rates do start to rise??? Thanks everyone for letting me stress...
legalbark -- I have owned this stock well over a year and have been very happy with it... recently added to my position after the offering of add. stock... as you know AI in the past always sold off after div. BUT recently it had been holding steady after div. with a slight increase in price. This action we are seeing now is totally different than I have seen since I have owned it...??? I expect good earnings ----But it appears others don't share my view. They can't be worried about interest rates - - not yet.
Stoxx regarding "making it back"... Want to share one with you... I have found a stock I REALLY like..take a look at Delek Logistics DKL... I owned some before getting out of FI. Once I got out of FI I doubled up in DKL. It is a MLP - somewhat recently spun off of parent co. look at their dividend history and LISTEN to their last conf. call. I think this will be my LONG term home run... Like to hear what you think. I am impressed.
Stoxx---- just pulled FI up to see how my old friends are surviving this...YES!! I am so glad I am out. The pain I suffered is nothing compared to what the others in this thing are going through now. Hope all is well in your world. Best wishes to you
