  • In just two weeks, the shorts have made out like gangbusters. One doesn't have to look hard to find out where this one's headed. What's going to happen if the markets ever reach the over-due decline that so many prognosticators seem to believe is just ahead?

    P/E Ratio Way Too High

    The average analysts earnings for 2015 is 1.18. The highest current number is 1.24. For a $13 stock that comes out to a PE of 11, so the forward PE is actually quite low for equities in this category. Most people like to look to the future and not the rear-view mirror when investing.

  • This short-term crash is leaving blood in the street. Margins are beginning to run dry and mass dumping is approaching in a large number of high PE stocks. Friday crashes usually bleed over on Monday morning, so be prepared. The sky may not be falling, though it could seem that way.

    IRA have followed the 70 1/2 rule for years. These accounts are for retirees. 77 is the expected life span of males today, so if you don't take something out, you may die and not benefit by your retirement funds. Just leave it to a bunch of spoiled and ungrateful kids? Why do that? Best gift to offspring is leave them small inheritances, so they will be forced to work and do something useful for society. So many rich children turn out to be worthless, if given too much money. Do we have to start naming names. Long list.

    Looking for Yield

    If you will open www.cef/connect.com, you can get a great deal of information on over a hundred closed in muni funds. Will answer most of your questions on yield, safety, rating, etc.

  • The see-saw, up-and-down volatility of AGNC can be avoided by buying the preferred stock (AGNCP). It has a .50 cent dividend and a lot less volatility. Of course, if some times in a blue moon, AGNC ever gets the book value questions settled and book moves upward, you'd best be in the equity instead of the preferred.

  • If we break through 13.30 and hold for day or two (short-term top on Jan. 30, 2014) should be off to the races. Would like to see break out on good volume, so BUY, BUY, BUY. We will probably double up at that point. Sell weak sisters and buy strength. Everyone has to house clean once in a while!

    MPW is a solid REIT, but also a unique blend

    Anyone long here?

    If you look at the huge negative cash flow, the long-term debt and the sea of red ink facing this company, you have to wonder who is going to lend the firm money. How much longer will JCP be able to pay its bills? It will take some major surgery and drastic changes. Perhaps the right person could restructure it under the proper bankruptcy plan, but I won't be betting on it. Sad to see a retail icon in such bad shape, but the handwriting is certainly on the wall for the once-powerful retailer. I've got to believe that the man who built the empire is having restless nights in his grave. "What have you done to my song, babe?" It's turning out all wrong.
