    great board with some sharp MB members

    guru...you are another investor that has a history of giving out excellent tips (because you know the difference between profit and loss)...the fact is, all of your tips have been fine and the BDC's are some of the best value in the markets at this time...

    I strongly suggest that all investors start to dollar cost average into the BDC's again after 07/01/14...I am long on BDCL, PSEC and STAG at this time...however, if STAG keeps retreating I may take 'a very nice profit' on it and move those funds into a higher yield holding (I can get an easy 10% higher yield because STAG only yields about 5.5%)...! Keep the faith because the best is yet to come (I promise, lol)...! $tagg...!

    sarge and board members... WOW, I am hitting new all time highs again...my strongest portfolio drivers at this time today are MLPL, AWLCF and DVHL...SDRL is catching fire again and SFL is catching its breath a bit...I don't know how long it will last (???), but our investment life is still very good...! $tagg...!

    sarge...years ago the SFL message board was very dead and I started putting messages about different type of investments (with no politics, religion or dirty name calling) and then bayman backed me up on it...then you can along and gave a lot more outstanding and strong support...

    The fact is, you and bayman have helped me build the SFL message board into an outstanding message board and now because of you and the strong support of a lot of other super sharp investors, that share the 'same investment vision', we now have two really outstanding message boards...

    That said, we have had some trolls try to change the programs on both message boards but the strong support group 'of really great investors' have helped us hold the line...more, because we now have real investment message boards where investors can agree or disagree with out hard feelings we all profit from it big time...! sarge, you are a special common sense investor and I salute you, we now have so many outstanding investors on both message boards that it is hard to count or name all of them...! And also a special thanks to all as we keep moving forward...! $tagg...!

    usenatgas...I also have a rollover IRA (from a 401K) so I can relate to what you are asking...myself, I withdraw 10% a year from my IRA (near the end of the year) and it keeps growing in value...it now looks like my IRA will outlive me (lol)...from what you ask, I suggest that you take a hard look at GABUX (yield about 13.4% and pays monthly)...GABUX has a pretty good history as in Total Returns it is up 87% in 5 years, 35% in 3 years,14% in one year and 5.6% YTD... ! Good luck on your choices...! $tagg...!

    A CURRENT LOOK INTO SOME OF THE FUTURE...!

    by staggman99 Jun 15, 2014 12:46 PM
    staggman99 staggman99 Jun 15, 2014 12:57 PM Flag

    correction...AWLCF (yield about 19% after fees, maybe for currency exchange) has been good for capital gains,'but not growth'....! $tagg...!

  • Board members...at this time, I still like BDCL and PSEC....BDCL (yield about 15.9%) is a double leverage (2x) basket of BDC's and in my opinion is very over-sold...PSEC (yield about 13.8% and pays monthly) is a BDC that is also over-sold st this time...However, a company that PSEC has gone bankrupt and that will hurt future earnings about -2% (which is not a big deal)...I plan to add more BDCL and PSEC at the beginning of July (after the Russell Index issue is done) and I feel they both will shine in the future because they are very over-sold...

    That said, I am still well pleased with all of my current holdings and plan no major changes...I will keep adding to my positions in DVHL (yield about 14% and pays monthly) and CEFL (yield about 18% and pays monthly)...I will not buy any oil or natural gas stocks at this time because I am not smart enough to make any profit in them (???)...however, regardless of the price of natural gas and oil, the production of them will always continue (and that is why I still like the off-shore drillers)...SDRL, AWLCF and SFL are all strong plays for 'growth and income' in the off-shore drilling markets...I think NADL (yield about 8.6%) is also a good play (but it will take a while, maybe a year to 18 months)...

    My current portfolio leaders in order are SFL, MLPL, AWLCF, NYMT, SDRL, STAG and etc.,...SDRL has been picking up steam and has been on the fast track again...my current Total Returns YTD are now 10.2% and my average weighted yield per entry point is still 12.8%...! I think we will get a Mid-Summer Rally and then it may be a rough ride for about three months (until November)...I also predicted that corn prices would be about $6.00 a bu. by August and I have been 'very wrong' about that (corn is now about $4.70 a bu.)...! Stagg...!

    SFL

    staggman99 staggman99 Jun 13, 2014 4:53 PM Flag

    lakeed...you have a long history of disrespecting investors (and I have never talked to you like that)...now for the record, I made a real good profit on FRO as I got a lot of dividends, two spin-offs of SFL stock and sold my holdings at about $54.00 a share...

    FRO is still a cash cow for SFL as they will reap some nice profit sharing because they gave them a break on charter rates and FRO is still paying on their leases...it still not over for FRO as the stock could still double (or more) in the future...

    Investors that don't talk politics, religion or call others dirty names 'already know this'...! FRO is still part of the JF program and still making a lot of investors money in different ways (please read the whole tape)....! $tagg....!

    OT: Another missed opportunity- EQM

    by marklibera Jun 13, 2014 11:31 AM
    staggman99 staggman99 Jun 13, 2014 3:51 PM Flag

    sarge...I feel you made two good buys today, BDCL (yield about 15.6%) and PSEC (yield about 12.8% and pays monthly) and I look for 'a strong snap-back' on both of them over the next 12 months (it may be about two weeks before they start to turn around)...

    That said, SDRL (yield about 9.9%) is still on the fast track as is AWLCF (yield now about 18% after 'small' currency exchange fees) and this is another good market day for me...at this time, I am up 10.5% YTD in Total Returns with a lot more dividends on the way...! Again, we never hit the highs or lows on a stock, but it is not to hard to make some profit in the middle...! $tagg...!

    mark...EQM (yield about 2%) is up 17% over the last 30 days...however, SDRL (yield about 9.9%) is up 12% over the last 30 days and NADL (yield about 8.4%) is up over 32% in the last 30 days (all are Total returns)...I feel that SDRL and NADL are probably better buys 'at this time' for future Total Returns (these opportunities are still available)...! $tagg...!

    guru...SDRL is making a strong come back but, it should never have gone down in the first place...a lot of people kept talking about all of the debt that SDRL has and they forgot that if debt is income producing it can be 'an income producing asset'...

    SDRL has a lot of strong drivers going for it at this time...i.e. the NADL deal with Russia, Total SA, SeaMex and a lot more (forward growth is very, very strong)...and we get paid while SDRL keeps 'growing and glowing"...again, this is an 'Golden Age of Investing', when we can get 'high yields and strong growth' at the same time across a lot of different investment sectors...! $tagg...!

    SFL

    by keebon Jun 12, 2014 10:33 PM
    staggman99 staggman99 Jun 13, 2014 11:03 AM Flag

    k-bon...nothing has changed with SFL and next quarters earnings will reflect a full quarter of profit from the last added off-shore drilling rig, plus there are more ships going into long term charters (two more dry bulk carriers)...the fact is, that all of JF"s companies 'never sit still', they keep paying high yields and 'growing and glowing'...

    We never know what news is coming out next (???) as SFL and SDRL always seem to surprise us with 'new deals' and we get paid while we are holding...myself, I need to take some off of the table (for portfolio balance) on both SFL and SDRL, the problem is that I am to greedy and I hate to lose more upside profits...! The drop in share price was probably only a bit 'of sector rotation' (this is always common in the markets)....! $tagg...!

    need a safe 5% yielder

    by ifishnski Jun 12, 2014 12:02 PM
    staggman99 staggman99 Jun 12, 2014 1:12 PM Flag

    ifishnski...invested money funds 'are always at risk'...for monthly yields I suggest, FFC (yield about 8.1%), HIX (yield about 8.8%), DVHL (yield about 14%) and CEFL (yield about 18%)...high yield holdings always give us 'a little more slack' to play with...! For a fund, I like GABUX (yield about 13.5%)...in Total Returns GABUX is up 83% over the last 5 years,15% over the last 12 months and 5.3% YTD and also pays monthly...! $tagg...!

    any one selling NYMT??

    by madmax19471952 Jun 11, 2014 1:45 PM
    staggman99 staggman99 Jun 11, 2014 3:29 PM Flag

    sarge...I am holding NYMT and I see no reason to sell it at this time, NYMT is up 20.2% in Total Returns YTD...I only sell for one of four reasons, a) if I think a holding is going a lot lower...b) if I think that I have a better place to put those funds c) to maintain portfolio balance or d) if I need the money...

    That said, I may sell 'some' SFL, SDRL and NYMT 'in the future' for portfolio balance (but they will remain core holdings), but not because I see a compelling reason to do so...! NYMT (yield about 13.5%) still has good color and a yield that is 'hard to replace'...! $tagg...!

    mark...I don't hate WMC, I just took a small profit and added those funds to other holdings that have been performing better in Total Returns....sometimes, I wonder how many investor do not have an active portfolio. keep updated performance and do comparison checks on their holdings...! Some investors look at the bottom line but do not search out the weakness in it, it takes a little more work to dot the eyes and cross the T's...! $tagg...!

    bayman...PSEC is a core holding of mine and and I am well pleased with it (even more today)....however, you may want to take a look at BDCL (yield about 16%), it is over-sold and should rebound in share price the future (after the end of June)...! BDCL is a double leverage (2x) basket of BDC companies and pays quarterly...! $tagg...!

    AWLCF -- I did not know

    staggman99 staggman99 Jun 11, 2014 9:18 AM Flag

    sarge...yes, I am still a believer in AWLCF (yield about 19% after fees), at this time I am up about 18% on it in Total Returns (since 12/22/13)...I also have a core holding in PSEC (yield about13.8%) and I have added more to it on the pull-backs (sometime it pays to keep the faith)...I am only holding 13 stocks at this time and I am in the money on all of them (this is rare, lol)...

    At this time, most of my crops look good (but corn prices are getting weaker) and my investments are doing fine...I still get a lot of dividends each month and I use them to balance out my portfolio...I am still a firm believer in this being a 'Golden Age of Investing' as it is very uncommon to get combination of 'strong yields with the growth' that is available to us at this time...! I have been doing so good lately that I am afraid to change anything...! $tagg...!

    bayman...I also sold my WMC for a small profit....AWLCF (yield over 19% after fees) does not have a K-1 form and so far I am well pleased with it (it does have some small fees that are taken out of the dividend, maybe for currency exchange, ???)....the following stocks do not have a K-1 forms to mess with; DVHL (yield about 14% and pays monthly), CEFL (yield about 18% and pays monthly), PSEC (yield about 13.8% and pays monthly) LNCO (yield about 10% and pays monthly), MLPL (yield is now only about 8.6%, because strong capital gains), MLPL has to mess with the K-1's, not us (because it is a basket of MLP's)...

    DVHL, CEFL,and MLPL are all double leveraged (2x) stocks and I like them (so far)...the yields fluctuate on DVHL a and CEFL because their income also fluctuates from month to month (they pay the way they receive)...! To be honest, I am also burned out on K-1 forms and I am staying away from them, I also don't think we gain that much when we sell them later on...and there is nothing worst than messing with K-1 forms if we lose money on that holding...! Good luck investing and keep in touch...! $tagg...!

    bayman...great posted message and I agree with 'one through four'...however, over the years on this message board , I always talk about Bloody October and it is very rare to not get some type of a market pull-back between August and early November...I only remember one year out of the last ten years that I was wrong and we did not get a pull-back in the Bloody October time frame...

    The only stocks that I have that are up today are MLPL (yield about 8.3%) and AWLCF. (yield about 19.3% after frees)...in Total Returns MLPL is up 26.6% YTD and AWLCF is up 20.2% YTD...at this time, I am well pleased with my current yields and on-going capital gains...more, in my opinion debt 'is an asset' if a company has a good business model and that is one of the reason that I like SFL and SDRL so much...! Thanks for a nice and intelligent posted message...! $tagg...!

    Board members...bob makes a good point on how the oil will be moved out of the Russia Arctic, as possible related to SFL (Russia also has the best ice breakers in the world)...however, I don't think the deal 'will come to fruit' as fast as a lot of investors think it will....! All of JF's companies are 'always moving forward' and a lot of the analyst are usually wrong about them...! $tagg...!
