    mark...I agree that there is to much 'Consumer debt' and 'Federal debt' (low interest Corporate debt can be a income producing asset)....however, look at how many good paying American jobs have been outsourced to other countries in the last five years...we lose over 10,000 jobs to Mexico in Evansville, Indiana and it is not a big deal unless you are one of the ones who lose their job...

    We have lost so many good paying jobs to outsourcing that almost zero interest rates cannot get the economy going again, and 'that is the main reason'...fact is, that my sons have to get the motherboard for their new Global Ice Maker (that is being built in Chicago) from China because 'none are available' in the U.S.,...! People that get a pink slip, and then have to take a job paying a lot less, always feel the pain...! $tagg...!

    guru...I am probably the only investor on these message boards that has corn, lol...however, most of my corn was looking great and I had it side-dressed with nitrogen (N) and now a lot of 'it is very yellow'...they did not inject the nitrogen deep enough and it burned the corn 'very bad'...I am now hoping that it will grow out of it (???)...! Keep investing and don't grow any corn (I am not the best corn grower either)...! $tagg...!

    Board members... at this time AWLCF (yield about 19% after fees) is up 25.3% YTD, MLPL (yield about 10%) is up 24.4% YTD and STAG (yield about 5.5%) is up 22.5% YTD and all are in Total Returns...I may sell my STAG (or put a stop loss order on it) and move those funds into a higher yield holding (I can more than double the current yield)...

    That said, for some reason (???), DVHL (yield about 14%) and CEFL (yield maybe 18%) are showing a lot more 'steady strength' at this time...! I am now hitting new all time highs almost everyday and I am now up over 11% YTD in Total Returns...! $tagg...!

    guys...I don't think we will have a 'major correction' until interest rates start going up (a lot)...low interest rates are a strong driver for over-all economic profits...that said, AWLCF (yield about 19% after fees) is now up 26% YTD in Total Returns...! Everybody keeps looking for magic stocks and they are 'right in front of us'...! I am not the best investor on these message boards, but I am now up over 11% YTD in Total Returns (and that is not to bad)....! $tagg...!

    O/T SDLP

    staggman99 staggman99 Jun 19, 2014 9:47 AM Flag

    sarge...I see 'no reason' to buy SDLP (yield about 5.5% or about half as much as SDRL), those funds would be better put invested into SDRL (yield about 10.1%)....if we already own SDRL we also have the basket of other off-shore drillers...keep it clean and easy and just invest in SDRL...! The main reason that SDRL has all of these other off-shore drillers is to reduce the liability if something bad would happen...! $tagg...!

    TWO declares dividend

    by helmetguru123 Jun 17, 2014 4:44 PM
    staggman99 staggman99 Jun 18, 2014 10:38 AM Flag

    Board members...the main reason that I own TWO (yield about 9.8%) is because of their 'Mortgage Serving Rights' (MSR's) which I feel will give 'some added protection' against an increase in higher interest rates (because of a steady revenue stream)...NRZ (yield about 10.9%) is the same on MSR's, I do not own NRZ, at this time, maybe I should (???).....! I almost sold my TWO but the share price 'turned north' when they announced that they had acquired MSR rights and now I am showing a decent profit on TWO....! $tagg...!

    bayman (better for you) always beat me (rats, lol)...I am now up 10.6% in Total Returns YTD...! $tagg...!

  • Board members...a broad index of equity REITs is up 12.5% after posting a decline of 1.2% last year...

    Number of REITs Total Returns YTD

    Health care 14 hospitals, assisted living facilities 17.3%

    Retail 24 shopping centers, regional malls 13.9%

    Self storage 4 self-storage units 17.4%

    Apartments 13 multifamily residences 19.5%

    Office 19 office buildings 17.6%

    Lodging/resorts 16 hotels and resorts properties 14.5%

    This year the yield on the 10-year Treasury note has edged downward to 2.6% and a lot of investors are returning to the real estate investment....! $tagg...!

    great board with some sharp MB members

    staggman99 staggman99 Jun 16, 2014 2:33 PM Flag 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 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 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...!

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

  • Board 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 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...!

    staggman99 staggman99 Jun 13, 2014 4:53 PM Flag have a long history of disrespecting investors (and I have never talked to you like that) 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 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

    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 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...!
