    staggman99 staggman99 Mar 22, 2014 8:09 PM Flag are probably right, but we are exporting a lot of ethanol to other countries and it is about profit and 'not energy'...ethanol is helping to hold down the price of gasoline and there is a reason that the price of ethanol is increasing...I am not always right, but the research that I have done suggest that we would not have enough fuel without ethanol...over 10% of our fuel for vehicles in now ethanol...and all gasoline needs 4% ethanol for 'an oxygen generator' to burn correctly (pure gasoline will not hold oxygen)...! $tagg...!

    Board is 'a nice magical stock pick' that I am very happy with...AWLCF (yield about 21.5%) has just payed out another nice dividend...also, NYMT (yield about 13.4%) has just been upgraded and the new price target is $10.00 a share...! It is always my pleasure to help out real investors...! $tagg..!

    opinions...I think that the 'Monkey Talker' is now part owner in a ethanol plant 'near my home base'...VLO has just bought another ethanol plant near Mt. Vernon, Indiana and VLO now has 11 ethanol plants and 16 refineries...VLO now has total ethanol production of 1.3 billion gallons a year...! $tagg...!

  • Board members...VLO (yield about 1.8%) has purchased another ethanol plant from Aventine Renewable Energy...VLO now owns 11 corn ethanol plants and 16 petroleum refineries...the almost new ethanol plant that they bought is just a couple of years old and is in Mt. Vernon, Indiana, which is 15 miles from my home base...

    The ethanol plant that VLO just bought is besides 'a major river port on the Ohio River' (Southwind Maritime Center) and is also serviced by the Evansville Western Railway...for some reason ethanol prices have been increasing (???) and they are now $2.86 a gallon...the new plant will give VLO a total ethanol production capacity of 1.3 billion gallons a opinion is, that VLO got the almost 'new plant very cheap' because Aventine Renewable Resources had it shut down while they were in chapter 11 bankruptcy...

    The Mt. Vernon plant will add about 65 new jobs and will be up and running within about 60 days...I should now be able to get a lot of reliable information, on VLO and etc., from some of the associates that I deal with (this is very big 'headline news' in the tri-state area today)...! $tagg...!

    ed...NYMT (yield about 13.4%) is now my second leading portfolio gainer and it had a nice price surge on Friday (03/21/14) on a lot higher volume, maybe because UBS upgraded it to a buy...I think the new price target on NYMT is about $10.00 a share...! $tagg...!

  • Board members... it is not very often that the REITs and the BDC's all show a strong increase at the same time...even SFL and SDRL are on the fast track at this time (and NYMT is red hot today)...! Investing is fun and its not over yet...! $tagg...!

    Board is always wise to be careful...however, I can be wrong but AMHPH is looking good to this time farmers are paying almost $300 a ton for potash in Brazil as they are getting it from Canada (where it is shaft mined and shipped lo Brazil)...if Verde Potash would only show a profit of $100.00 a ton on production of 1,000 tons a day that would be $500,000 a week (five days) or about $26 million dollars in profit a year...

    Verde Potash is pretty much a spin-off from Vale and is also being funded by the government in Brazil...the reason that AMHPF caught my eye is because I am a farmer and I know the value of potash on the yields of crops that we grow...Verde Potash in in the heart of the bread basket of Brazil and they can get gate prices for their product...

    Verde potash has a very good 'Corporate Presentation in March' (it takes a while to download it) that some board members may find interesting...! I do not suggest that anybody buy AMHPF, myself I feel the risk vs reward is better than a lot of my other holdings at this time (I cannot lose much at $1.60 a share)...! That said, we are off to another great day in the markets, our investment life is very good...! $tagg..!

    Board members...usually I never get personal or respond to nasty messages...however, I am very proud of my sons as I have a lot of money and years of my life invested in them...and I do brag about them...

    I have two sons, two daughters and 18 oldest son holds the world record in power lifting for 23 years (the dead lift) and took first place in the National Drug Free Power Lift Meet in Ohio about three weeks ago (by weight class in the men's open division) oldest son has 23 international patents and my youngest son has 9 international patents...

    My sons (who are both engineers with Master degrees) now own their own engineering firm in Indiana and are developing a new energy efficient product that will be in just about every home in the world that has a new refrigerator (in the very near future)...most of the global appliance makers are already on board with it (more on this at a later date)...

    My one daughter is an international buyer for a major corporation and my other daughter is a teacher...that said, I am one of the few people that post their real name and location on yahoo message boards because I hide nothing (I do have a nephew that has had some problems)...! I slander nobody, yet my family has now been slandered on what is suppose to be an investment board...! $tagg...!

    Board this time I am up about 4% YTD in Total Returns in my portfolios (my Total Returns fell back a bit)...however, my current dividend payouts should increase all of that...I receive dividends in STAG and PSEC monthly and have just received one in SDRL...WMC, NYMT, TWO, SFL, AWLCF and AI will all payout within the next 30 days...

    That said, WMC (yield 'with the new dividend rate is' now 16%) has reduced their dividend to 67 cents a share (quarterly)...fact is, that WMC had a stock dividend and now I have a lot more shares so I am receiving about the same amount of money at 67 cents a share as I did before at 90 cents a share...

    I know that I talk high yields and Total Returns a lot, but the high yields get me more funds to go shopping with and 'more slack' to play with in markets pull-backs...we may not always be able to get these high yields in the future, so it is good to take advantage of them while we can...! $tagg...!

    sarge..I will buy some 'very soon' (hoping for a bit of a share price pull-back first)...the 'March corporate presentation' is very good, but it takes a while to download it...! I think this stock could be $8.00 to $12.00 a share in 12 to 18 months (I don't make stock price predictions very often)...! $tagg...!

  • Board members... Verde Potash (AMHPF) has completed their drilling tests and the stock is up about 33% today because of the results...they have about 1.5 billion tons of K2O reserves that can be surface mined...the current price of the stock is about $1.50 a share and it will probably shine in the future...I plan to buy 1,000 shares because the risk vs reward could be very great in 12 to 18 months (they are starting up 1,000 tons a day production at this time and have received government funding in Brazil)...! $tagg...!

  • staggman99 by staggman99 Mar 20, 2014 12:51 PM Flag

    william and other interested board members...Verde Potash (Brazil) has completed their drilling test and they have reserves of about 1.5 billion tons of 9% K2O...also, the reserves are at the surface and can be surface much to post, just go to the AMHPF website and read todays new on AMHPF, then click on the company profile and when the website comes up check out recent new releases on 03/20/14 (they are starting up 1,000 tons a day production)...! The current share price is about $1.50 a share and this could be very big and profitable in the future...! $tagg...!

    sarge...I am glad we have this message board as some people will 'never stop trying' to get political or personal on the SFL message board...fact is, even when the trolls 'turn a board political or with personal attacks' they end up getting mad at each other and then go to another board and start it again...! It good to have a backup board, keep the faith and keep investing...! $tagg...!

    Board members...SDRL seems to be doing a bit of a rebound and several of the REITs and other financials are holding their own, (WMC, NYMT, AI and etc.)...however, today I have some focus on ORC (yield about 17.3% and pays monthly), ORC is have an SPO which is pulling the share price down at this time...

    That said, ORC has very poor color, weak drivers and a questionable forward outlook...what I don't understand is why they have increased the monthly dividend from 14 cents to 18 cents (???) I missing something here, why would a REIT 'with such poor color' increase the monthly dividend (???)....! Is this stock getting set for a rebound (???)...! $tagg...!

    william...I agree with you...first, Crimea has a lot of oil and natural production...second, Crimea has a lot of jobs from the ice free port that Russia has there...third, Russia has been paying the Ukraine 100 million dollars a month to use the Crimea ice free port and those funds will now go to Crimea...

    My opinion, is that Crimea (about the size of Southern Indiana) will now become 'one of the wealthiest nations in Europe' and the Ukraine economic problems will get a lot worst (because of the loss of a lot of previous revenue)..! $tagg...!
