    k-bon...I am touting NMM and NAO at this time thanks to you, lol...I m already up 15.6% on NMM in just a few days...However, I do not own NAO yet, but I plan to add it sometime in the future (the CEO letter to the shareholders looks good to me)...! Please keep up the good tips, as you are making me a lot of profit, on growth and high yields...! $tagg...!

    ed...it sounds to me like you are doing pretty good this year, as compared to the rest of us (good for you)...maybe we have gotten 'a bit spoiled' by getting very high Total Returns in past years...you were also right about MLPL as I made a great profit on it (it is no longer one of my holdings)...this current rally has been 'very sweet to me' and I feel the best is yet to come...! Please, keep the information flowing as you are one of the best...! $tagg...!

    k-bon...good point, however I was never touting VLCCF (it may have looked like it, but I never owned it)...I was only pointing out that it was doing very good 'on my watch list', at that point in time...I have also pointed out that NEWM is doing great, but sad to say I sold it after the spin-off and that was a mistake (NEWM has gone up 99.8% since I sold it)...

    The fact is, I do still have AWLCF but I sold FRO for a profit at about $54.00 a share and have never looked back...I have mention that it has rally some...I reason that I use to do a 'Show and Tell' was to let investors, that were interested, know my current holdings (as I enjoy seeing all of theirs)...! Not to make anybody mad, but I am now down about -3% YTD in the on-going rally...! $tagg...!

    k-bon...you are doing fine by me...I also know that I brag a lot, but I am 72 years old and I have worked hard all my live and I have a lot to brag about because I have been very successful... however, I don't understand why a lot of investors are still in a bad mood when the markets have been in such a strong rally, unless they have a lot of their funds on the sidelines...! Again, thanks for the tip on NMM as I plan to keep adding more funds to it in the future (its the best tip I got on these message boards this year)...! I also like the looks of NAO (I also notice that the DOW is up again, this market may have strong legs)...! $tagg...!

  • Board members...2014 has been a very tough year for me, but it is now looking a lot better...I am now down less than -4% YTD in Total Returns and I have a lot of dividends on the way (very soon)...hopefully, we can start to move forward on our investments going into 2015...my portfolio leaders at this time 'in order' are NYMT, SFL, AI and NMM...! Even though the DOW is down today, this is 'the fourth great day in a row' for me...! $tagg...!

    sarge...the fact is, its always about 'Supply And Demand' (but oil is also priced in dollars)...when the supply of oil retreats, then oil prices will increase...lets not forget, that a lot of companies and consumers benefit fro lower oil prices..! Good luck with your apple...! $tagg...!

    Board members...a stronger dollar may push oil prices even lower (source: CNBC)...the fact is, a stronger dollar also hurts grain prices as they cost our trade partners in other countries more to purchase corn and soybeans...! $tagg...!

    HIGH YIELD INVESTING...!

    by staggman99 Dec 18, 2014 10:24 AM
    staggman99 staggman99 Dec 19, 2014 9:04 AM Flag

    ed...you sarge and bayman are among some of the best 'up beat investors' on this message board and I am not here to fight or disagree...but I am not going to let mark keep trying to make a fool out of me (he needs to look in his own wallet)...

    That said, my 'cash flow' (revenue stream) from my yields is a lot higher than it was at the beginning of 2014 because of re-investments and portfolio changes (yet my principal is sill down some)...

    My opinion is, that SDRL and NADL are both still good companies...but I sold them because they stopped paying out dividends and moved those funds into other holdings that are still paying out nice yields...

    I also feel very sorry for a lot of investors than have taken a major loss this year as it will take some a very long time to make up their losses...I also feel that investments in oil is still not the place to be at this time (however, I still have some stocks related to off-shore drillers, SFL and AWLCF)...the price of Illinois crude is now $47.00 a barrel (down $2.50, effective 12/19/14)...! $tagg...!

    k-bon...I have CNBC on I my office all day long and there is talk about the shipping companies making a lot more profit because of lower fuel costs (even if they hedge fuel costs, it is only a percentage of what they use)...there is also a lot of talk on CNBC about the current rally and the January effect...

    In 1985 John Fredrisksen got in trouble with an insurance company because a lot of his ships were coming up short on heavy oil that they were hauling...a system was found for using some of the heavy bunker oil to run the ships and JF ended up paying some stiff fines to the insurance company...my point is, that fuel is a major expense for shipping companies and we can probably profit from some of their current lower expenses....

    Myself, I have had 'three great days' in the markets, yet I find it a bit strange that most investors on this message board do not seem very excited about it...i.e. NMM (yield now about 15.4%) is up over 12% in the last couple of days (thanks for the tip)...! I also don't see how the Dow can go up 700 points in two days without some of a pull-back, tomorrow should be interesting...thanks for posting the current shipping rates...! $tagg...!

    HIGH YIELD INVESTING...!

    staggman99 staggman99 Dec 18, 2014 7:00 PM Flag

    mark...in other words you are not telling us that you have had a very bad year in the markets...ok, now listen to this, I have 'increased my revenue stream' that I receive from my current yields by about '$7,000 this year', yet you keep calling me silly (again and again)....

    Its not how much my farms are worth, it is how much 'net revenue that I can make off of them each year'...more, if I did not think it was a good idea to farm or invest in certain stocks, I would not do it...

    That said, you are probably a younger investor and some day you may seek out higher yields to supplement your income...I use to brag on you and look forward to your messages until you started to 'look for reasons' to bash me (I said I would eat crow if SDRL did not perform well and I did eat my crow)...! I really don't get it...the markets went up about 700 points in the last two days and everybody still seems unhappy...! $tagg...!

    mark...I am down 33.9% on AWLCF but that will change tomorrow as I have another large dividend coming that I will reinvest....

    On AMHPF I have 1,000 shares and I am down 69% for -$1,O27.00, I will probably make that back the first day they start selling fertilizer (it went up 14.7% today)...

    If I take a haircut on ADM or F I will not have high yields to help bail me out (I just bought them, I have not had them for several years like I did SDRL, but I did made some short term profit on F early this year)...

    However, you don't want to talk about how much you loss on EVEP, LINE or several other stocks in the oil sector (is it a big secret, ???)...remember that, You ask me over a year ago not to say anything bad about LINE (and I stopped, until you started bashing me again)...you should have listened to me about the law of 'Supply and Demand'...

    Again, I am down about -6% YTD in Total Returns and I am 'still waiting' for you to tell what your Total Returns are this year, or is it a can of worms that you don't want to talk about (???)...! We have had three great days in the markets, yet all you want to do is keep bashing me (have you missed the current rally (???)...! $tagg...!

    mark...I did make a profit on SDRL as I owned it for several years (I loss some invested funds on NADL)... I am still getting a high yield on a lot of the funds I had in SDRL as I sold and moved those funds into different holdings...I don't walk on water and neither do you...

    Now lets talk about your bad investments in the last year or so...what are your Total Returns YTD (???)...I post all of my buys and sells, lets see you do a real time show and tell...don't keep bashing me because you made a lot of bad investments in the oil sector (its not my fault)...! $tagg...!

    mark...I guess you did not listen to Putins speech and 'the part about Ukraine'..he is pushing for 'open discussions' to help solve the current problems...I said, they are backing down 'a bit'...! Mark, you keep attacking me all the time (about everything)...maybe its time for you to tell us what your Total Returns are YTD (???)...I am now down about -6% YTD...! $tagg...!

    Board members...we had a very Bloody October and then the markets crashed again in the last few weeks,,,but the fact is, that the markets always snap-back, at some point in time...I never tell others how to invest their funds, but I do tell others 'where I am putting my invested funds' and I tell which holdings that are 'not for me'...I also try to not get personal, yet some investors go out of their way to attack me...

    Before we had the recent crash in the markets, I said that I always take my high yields and reinvest them when the market fall back and 'it is paying off again this time'...some investors say that high yields are high risk...I still say that low yields are high risk because they give us little slack to play with...I feel my high risk holdings at this time 'are ADM and F' because they have very low yields...! More, if I had followed a lot of the investment crowd in the last year I would really be in a very deep hole...! Good luck to all, as this is another great day in the markets and the best is yet to come...! $tagg...!
