    o/t APPLE paid a nice divi today

    bob...I also have a position in NADL (not core)...I am probably the only investor around that thinks NADL is a very strong company 'without' the Roseneft be honest, I don't think the Roseneft deal is all that good...

    A lot of the deal is based on 150 on-shore drilling rigs that NADL will lease back to Roseneft...NADL will be lucky if those rigs run six months a year because on-shore drilling pretty much stops when the ground is freezing and thawing (when equipment freezes in the ground it cannot be moved)..! $tagg...!

    Board members...first, it looked to me like AWLCF sold off because of some tax law changes...however, it now looks to me like they are showing a lot more profit from the changes in the tax laws (so it looks like a lot of investors read it backwards on the tax law changes)...! I am wrong a lot, but I think I got this right (???)...! That said, we need more poetry and Jim beam Black (it always makes a difference)...! $tagg...!

    gambler...Ford makes about $8,000 to $10,000 profit on every new I understand it there are already about 250,000 orders for the new aluminum truck...I started a position in Ford today as I feel it will shine in the next 18 months (I am looking for some short or longer term profit on it)...

    I also plan to add more SDRL and NADL when/if they 'disconnect' from the price of oil...also, bob made a good point about shipping companies showing a stronger profit from lower oil prices (less fuel cost)...there are a lot of things changing in the markets and we can profit from it...! AWLCF is now up about 7% today and is still running hot...! Stagg...!

I will check out LYB...keep in touch...! $tagg...!

    Board members...while the Monkey Talker takes time to call me a pimp, 'he failed to mention' that crop insurance 'is not free or cheap' and unlike other insurance payments 'it is taxable'...! Tip, I mention, on this message board, that AWLCF (yield about 29.9%) was a good buy...AWLCF increase in value by 8% today...! $tagg...!

    sarge...I have a long history of always doing everything 'to soon'...I buy to soon and usually sell to soon...on investments, we can rebound in a few weeks or maybe a few months, but on farming I always have to wait another year and 'that crop is gone'...! Its O.K. because I still have my Jim Beam Black, lol...! $tagg...!

    Gas prices at $3 won't last (article)

    Board members...some of the Pro's are saying that 'oil prices will go lower' because SA, Russia, Iran and Venezuela need to 'sell more oil' to maintain their current budgets...the fact is, that a lot of the main oil producing countries need to 'increase oil output' because of lower oil prices (source: CNBC)...! More, corn prices have increased about 27% in the last couple of weeks because of an increase in demand and the U.S. corn crop is not has big as was expected...! $tagg...!

  • Board members...I messed up, I sold all of my corn and soybeans because I thought that grain prices were going lower...the fact is, I sold all of my corn about two weeks ago and corn prices have increased about 80 cents a bu. since I sold...corn has increased 27% a bu. since I sold it...soybean have also increased but not near like corn has...

    The only bright spot is, that I invested those funds, from my farm operations and caught some of the recent market rally...that said, all is not always bad, AWLCF just turned in great earnings and is up about 7% (at this time today)...AWLCF (yield now about 29.9%) will pay a dividend of $1.15 a share on about 12/19/14...! $tagg...!

    Board members...Yahoo stock is up 24.6% YTD in Total Returns and some investors are unhappy with the results...the fact is, Marissa Mayer (CEO) is doing a fine job....! $tagg...!

  • Board members...AWLCF (yield about 29.9%) just turned in 'really good earnings' and is maintaining its current dividend of $1.15 per this time today AWLCF is up over 4%...! $tagg...!

    Board members...NYMT (yield about 13.4%) is my third leading portfolio gainer and it is now up 28.2% YTD in Total Returns...! MLPL is my leading gainer and SFL is my second portfolio gainer...! $tagg...!

    Board members...over the 12 months ending in September 401-K participants contributed an average of $6,080 to their accounts...

    $89,100 is the average 401-K balance which is up 6% from the previous year....that is due to a rise in stock prices (19.7% in the S & P 500) and the average contributions are up over 1% from the previous year...

    The fact is, more savings, plus an increase in investing, is pushing the stock markets upward, and that is good for all investors...! The best is yet to come because the tape is still running hot...! $tagg...!

    Board members...Airlines have been paying an average $2.98 a gallon for fuel which is 11 cents a gallon less than the prior year...that 11 cents saved the industry $1.8 billion...airline stocks have helped carry the Dow Jones Transportation average into record territory, the average is now up 21% YTD...a list of some of the leaders YTD are:

    Southwest Airlines (LUV) is up 101.4% YTD

    Delta Air Lines (DAL) is up 56.2% YTD

    Alaska Air Group (ALK) is up 51% YTD

    JetBlue Airways (JBLU) is up 50% YTD

    United Continental (UAL) is up 47.1% YTD

    Avis Budget Group (CAR) is up 42.2% YTD

    Union Pacific (UNP) is up 41.6% YTD

    Landstar System (LSTR) is up 33.2% YTD

    That said, the Dow Jones transportation average is up very strong and should keep gaining more strength...! Just something else to think about...! $tagg...!

    staggman99 staggman99 Nov 10, 2014 3:51 PM Flag looks to me like the drilling companies (stocks) are starting to 'disconnect from the oil and natural gas stocks'...the color (key statistics) and the yields are already showing a major difference between them...

    It also looks like all of the markets are trying to push higher...I like the current looks of NMM and VLCCF based on their one year target est. and several other factors...! Keep the faith and keep investing, the best is yet to come...! $tagg...!

    sarge...outstanding posted message...almost a year ago I posted that I was seeing new F-150 4x4 trucks everywhere (i even bought one myself)...because of that, I bought some Ford stock (F) and held it until earnings came out and made a nice short term profit...

    My point is that the i-Phone must be selling very good because that is not the only store selling them...sometimes we can make a profit by just paying attention...that said, I just got back from the scrap yard, I took some 'scrap copper' in to sell and get rid of...I was surprised to get $2.50 a lb. for the scrap copper I just sold...! $tagg...!

    k-bon...I added more NADL this morning because I think most investors are reading it and SDRL all to answer your question, I don't think it will make much difference what you buy or sell, at this time, because I feel the markets are doing a steady rebound...

    The fact is, some stocks will increase a lot more than others, but going forward the 'stocks that are over-sold will increase the most'...that said, first it is never wrong to take profit (at any level) and second, SFL is 'a very safe and high yield' stock going forward...! Good luck with your trades...!
