sarge...thanks, for taking the time to post to a lot of outstanding information on AAPL...Apple seems to be breaking out into a lot of different type of sectors and it seems they have the talent and the cash reserves to deal with it...some of the 'current color' on APPL is; ROA is 19.3%, ROE is 37.4%, ROI is 25.2%, gross margin is 39.3%, operating margin is 29.7%, profit margin is 22.3% and the target price is $140.05...
The current trend is a sell...however, the short, medium and long term indicators are a 'weak buy'...the support price is $125.12, pivot is $125.59 and resistance is $127.99...my opinion is, that APPL has all the strong color, cash reserves, the best of the breed in talent and will continue to produce new ideas and profitable products in the future...! My internet server has been down for a few days and I am now trying to get back on track again, lol...! Good luck to all...! Stagg...!
ed...while RAD does have a high level of debt...the fact is, that most investors think RAD is on the fast track to stronger profits...i.e. RAD has just moved up to 100% buy from a 96% buy a couple of days ago on the technical indicators...one of the current share price drivers is their acquisition of EnvisionRX...! I also favor high yield stocks (over high growth) because they give us some slack to fall back on (if something goes wrong)...! Stagg...!
Board members...I think that sarge is on to something here on RAD (good for all of us)...RAD 'is rated a 96% buy' on short, medium and long tern indicators that I use (12 different)...and the current trend 'is a buy'...ROA is 4.7%, ROE is -16.8% (weak because of very fast growth), the ROI is 18.1% and the gross margin is 26.6%...EPS this year are 91.7%, EPS next year are 27% and earning quarter over quarter are 150%...support is $8.57, pivot is $8.50 and resistance is $9.02 with a target price of $9.66..note: the p/e is a bit high at 25...! My opinion is, that RAD has 'great over-all color' and looks great for some future 'capital gains'...! Stagg...!
Board members...investors that want high growth and are not concerned about high yields, UVE may be the answer...UVE (yield about 1.9%) is an insurance company that in Total Returns is up 460% last two years, 106% in the last 12 months and is now up 25% YTD...ROA is 7.9%, ROE is 38.5%, ROI is 28.6% and the p/e is 11.8....the over-all trend is rated 'a hold' at this time...with a price target of $25.00...! This is another one of my previous holdings that I sold to soon...! Stagg...!
bayman...that would give RSO a current yield of about 14% (still not bad)...more, HTGC (yield about 9%) is now having a stock offering at $13.23 a share...! Stagg...!
Board members...I also remember the Monkey Talker saying for years that LINE would be fine because of their hedges...'Monkey Talkers who live in glass houses should not throw rocks', lol...! Its also nice to see our government let some of the Mid-East countries do their own fighting and spend some of their own money defending their selves...! Stagg...!
more...the WMC dividend is payable on April 28, 2015 to shareholders on record as of April 6, 2015 with an ex-dividend date of April 1, 2015...the company also announced that the book value was approximately $15.13 on February 28, 2015...! My opinion is, that it looks like the markets like the latest news on WMC...! Stagg...!
Board members...WMC (yield about 17.5%) is now 'rated a hold' on the 12 technical indicators that I use and the current trend is a buy...gross margin is 77.5%, operating margin is 71.1%, profit margin is 64.2% and the return on equity is 15.9%...the RSI is 52.66 (a hold)...and the p/e is 5.7 (not to bad) with earnings this year of 324% (earnings per share quarter over quarter are -68%)...! WMC has been a nice holding in my portfolio for 'extra' high yields...! Stagg...!
bayman...this must be a mistake (???), I ran some numbers on RSO (Yield about 17.1%) and it looks like the earnings per share, quarter over quarter is 600%...the current ratings 'are a sell' but the 600% sure has my attention...gross margin is 59%, operating margin is 23.8%, profit margin is 40.9% and the target price is $5.56....! That 17.1% yield looks pretty sweet (and that is a lot of slack to play with)....! That said, I have added more NRZ and KCAP (I am looking for some more protection against a future interest rate increase)...! Stagg...!
k-bon...I agree (my bad information)...however, propane does have Ethanethiol (and it is toxic) added to it which is a naturally occurring petroleum component (and in my opinion, it makes the meat taste a bit weird)...! Stagg...!
Board members...for the record MON is probably not a good investment...the current short, medium and long term technical indicators, that I use, rate it at a 88% sell...it also has a also poor p/e of 21 and a weak yield of 1.7%...the ROE is fair at 24% but the quarter over quarter EPS are down -29.9%...! I use Round-Up, but I would never buy stock in the company that makes it., lol...! Stagg...!
Dh...as an investors you are outstanding and 'no need to get personal' because I disagree...however, a lot of other people have missed the point...how do some people cook their meat, do they us use charcoal (???), I hope they let the charcoal lite burn off first...do they use propane (???), propane has a funny smell and the meat does not taste as good (it is made from gasoline fumes)...i.e. if spring water taste better, it is because it has some thing else in it besides H2O....
More, that 'fresh smell' that we smell in a new vehicle or a new home, is glues, solvents and other chemicals that are still curing...again every time we eat some bread, remember that the grain was treated with poison to kill the weevils in it...! The point is that nothing is truly organic (some things are a lot worst)...! The fact is, most chemicals have made our
life a lot better over-all....! Stagg...!
bayman...I have also added more KCAP and some NRZ as I feel it is time to prepare for some pending interest rate increases in the future...! Stagg...!
Board members...lets not for get about water we drink (the only really safe water is distilled)...when we go to the grocery store does everybody use wipes on the shopping cart (???) especially the child seat, how many people on this message board are taking medication (???) and some of the meds. are worst than a lot of the foods we eat, how many disease are under control because of chemicals used kill different bugs and rats and molds that spread diseases...how many people want to eat rodent droppings in their food or bugs (???)...all wheat grain is gassed with poison to kill the weevils in it...
How much hunger has been stopped in the world because of an increase in food production because of different chemicals or improved different types of foods by GMO (???)...how many people have seen what 'Army Worms' can do to a corn field (???)...how many people look in the cabinet, under the kitchen sink or bathroom, to see what they pour down the drain...! There is probably no such thing as organic at any level and people that have family members that farm should ask them what they think about organic farming...! Good luck to all and enjoy your cheaper diner today, lol...! Stagg...!
sarge...NMM is doing not only doing a share price snap-back, but it also got a nice upgrade which helped a lot more...a lot of investors feel that it was not a computer generated crash on NMM...however, I don't think anybody that works for a investment company (mutual funds and etc.) would sell 'millions of share that fast' and cost their company millions of dollars in loses (an investment person would not do that)...! Stagg...!
william...so do I (about every three years)...latest research suggest that leaf analysis is probably the best (it more like a blood test, lol)....! More, we can have the 'necessary nutrients' in the soil, but the soil may not release them properly, if something else is out of balance...! Stagg...!
ed...the dividend on LMLP was 3.76 % (not to bad for a monthly yield, but it changes month over month)...I also notice that most of my yields on MLPL ,CEFL, DVHL say 'non-taxable'...! Stagg...!
k-bon...I majored in Botany, Zoology and Chemistry (many years ago) and I have been building good soil for over 50 years and most people don't have clue what it takes to grow good crops or raise quality beef...every time I take somebody from the city to my farms, in the summer, they say the same thing, "Gosh, there are a lot of bugs out today"...thats the way it is in the country (its not the golf course)...
More, if a farmer takes hay off of the fields year after year, it don't take long and they cannot hardy grow anything (the same thing with corn silage, its called 'farming the ground down') everybody on this message board knows that if they fertilize their lawn and it rains, they have to mow grass more often...
I will let go at that, because this is an investment board and you are a really good guy and this discussion really serves no purpose...! That said, I have a lot of family living in Eden Prairie (my sister Jennifer is a pathologist up there)....! Good luck investing and it looks like we are doing a lot better on NMM, lol...! Stagg...!
k-bon...I am not trying to be disagreeable, but the pasture that the cattle feed on is treated with fertilizers, lime, pesticides and herbicides (and the cattle eat it)...they don't always tell the whole story (some organic beef websites admit it)...
We never get more off of the land than we put on it, be it meat or grain...! Crops (corn, soybeans and etc.) don't eat pesticides and herbicides, but organic fed cattle do...! Stagg...!
k-bon...I hate to rain on your parade, but the so-called food you are buying is probably not organic (they just say it is)...anybody that has a garden and grows sweet corn already know that the top of the ear is always full of worms and sometimes they have to throw away most of it...
All beef is grass fed (that is a fact), they will finish off some of the younger cows on grain or ethanol tailing (lol), to increase the quality...'the other' that you are taking about is 'old cows which are sold commercial grade'...
More, they also give them a shot (a muscle relaxer) before they slaughter them...! Stagg...!
