    Certain EURO stocks would fall into the same situation. Canada is more investor friendly as they have reporting requirement similar to the US. There system is called SEDAR. XQ

    Cheetah;
    You missed my point. With the US $ having appreciated against the CAD $ the stocks and underlying assets are selling at a discount. On top of that, the oil type stocks are further devalued. Stocks that hold real estate, oil and gas reserves and minerals are becoming screaming bargains. The companies that pay out a dividend make it even better.

  • Although I believe that MU has further to run on the upside; it is never a sound idea to put all your money it just one or two stocks. I have for a while, have been watching different markets around the world as investment possibilities. Many markets have stocks that look attractive but there is a lack of valid information with regards to the underlying stocks. The one market that really interest me is the Canadian market; especially with the dollar gaining strength against the Canadian dollar. Many of these stocks are set up as REITS and Trusts that pay out dividends. So I put together some information over at Investors Village on the MU Board about Buying Stocks at a Discount and how the exchange rate is allowing US investors to basically buy assets for less then they are worth.

    Today 3/19/2015 114,592 April 17, 2015 call contracts were written and sold. 108,454 at the $9 strike.
    That is either a pretty big bet or someone in the know.

    Years ago I owned PBY stock and made a real nice double on the stock along with a 6% yield.
    I used their service department for various services. The one thing that really bothered me was the customers were always having problems with their service. I had several incidents where my local PBY service department really screwed up so I stopped going and sold my stock.
    The biggest problem for PBY is their service department. When they make a customer unhappy, that customer never comes back for anything. They need to do away with all service except for tires and oil changes.

    Two days ago 26,000+ call contracts were written and bought. That was 10 times the number of put contracts that were written and sold. Does that tell you something? XQ

  • Strategy;
    CVS and WBA have been busting butt to build new stores on high profile, high traffic corners. RAD on the other hand is locating stores in neighborhoods that have high income profiles. The land costs are less and the customers are closer. Many of the old Eckard stores that RAD acquired, were at one time in neighborhoods that had lower income profiles. RAD has been closing these under performing stores. In the end RAD is revamping their image through both renovations of prime existing stores and the newer stores in more affluent neighborhoods. If RAD has started to build stores and then sell them with a lease back type format; RAD's earnings will start to show signs of life.
    I am in this a $3.95 per share and look for much higher prices. Maybe even a buyout. XQ

    If you did you would see an exemplified YHOO chart with multiple moving averages and other information. Save it to your favorites and you then can open it up for any stock.

    Boots would have to pay 27 billion.

    RAD has many long term leases on locations, which in today's market would demand higher rents. That makes these lower rent leases more valuable to WBA as they could either keep the location or sublet the location out at a higher rent for a profit. Any company owned locations could also be sold off to an investor with a lease back deal. In this low interest rate environment that is ideal for WBA, CVS or RAD. In a higher interest rate environment lease rent returns have to compete with the intrinsic value of money and the return that the market will pay to borrow that money. So with that said, I believe that RAD is undervalued and in a bidding war between CVS and WBA, RAD could fetch $16 to $22. XQ

    RAD;
    When you understand how Walgreen's has been operating you will understand how they were able to expand so quickly. WAG finds a prime location, builds a store and then turns around and does a sale and lease back. The sale actually generates more money then they put into the property and that allows them to stock the store with merchandise. RAD has always leased existing locations.

    WAG purchased BOOTS when the $/EURO exchange rat was at about $1.30 US per 1 EURO. Now that the exchange rate is at $1.06 US per 1 EURO it is less favorable to convert dollars to EURO's. So BOOTS needs to expand in the USA using the Walgreen dollar's generated by their stores. It will be much cheaper to buy existing locations that will fill in the retail holes. If RAD does come into play, I expect CVS to jump in with a bid.

    If that is the case then I expect to see something from $16 to $22 per share.
    I am long RAD. XQ

    ARCP

    xquestor xquestor Mar 16, 2015 12:05 AM Flag

    The biggest thing that REIT investors miss is that the long term leases all have yearly rent escalation clauses built into them. Generally a 3% to %5 increase. Not sure what it is for ARCP, but; with prime locations it could be more. The other option is that medium term debt could be paid off if the effective yield begins to climb. By selling stock the interest payment would decline. XQ

    You really have to love this stock. Up from a low of $7.38. That is a pretty good recovery. They have made many changes to the company and they have been straightforward about the filings. If you do not like the company you need to find one that you like and jump in on that message board. If you are here to badmouth positive posters you are just wasting your time. This company will either succeed or will be bought out. It has never stopped producing income from its holdings.

    When you own stock in a company like ARCP, there is always the chance that another company will buy them out. Companies like Appolo (symbol APO) who raise vast amount of money are always looking for income producing REITS.
    Just a thought. XQ

    I am more inclined to concede $12.50 BASED ON THE CHART.
    $13.30 would have to have some really strong earnings. I do believe that we will get to $13.50 at some point in 2016. As rents adjust up, I believe that earnings will improve. The big unknown is the interest rates on US debt. XQ

    No I do not think that Nick overpaid for any of the properties.
    I believe that this BOD or any subsequent BOD will be under much greater scrutiny.
    They said that they would have the past quarterly numbers by a certain date and they did.
    They recovered the over payment of funds and or stock paid to prior employees.
    I am in for the long term as I believe that they will prosper with their holdings.
    The properties will over time generate more income as the rent escalation clauses in the lease agreements come due.
    I for one will give them a chance and may even buy more.
