ROIC

I own a decent amount of ROIC as well as warrants. I noticed today a negative article so thought it should be brought to everyone’s attention: http://www.thestreet.com/story/11577232/1/retail-opportunity-investments-corp-stock-downgraded-roic.html

Energy Stocks

I have about 22 Energy stocks which represent 22.46% of my main portfolio. These stocks have been held an average of 2.34 years with a gain of 34,66% which is not great considering how the mining section has done but which is a necessary component of my holdings. I have been thinking of what to […]

ZYX Change Method?

Is anyone familiar with this service that presumeably uses a unique technical analsysis system to develop longs, shorts, et al? The site is : http://thearorareport.com/ZYX%20METHOD.htm I was reading Marketwatch ”Precious metals will fall if IMF sells gold” by the apparent creator of the site, Nigam Arora. I have never run across this site nor him […]

Transportadora de Gas Del Sur (TGS)

Came across this interesting item in late October 2011 and promptly bought some. It is an Artgentinian natural gas pipeline company that seems to bear an overly large dividend, though I did not purchase it for the dividend, more for the upside potential. Anyone else own, interested in the above? Looking for feedback, as always, […]

I've owned quite a bit with an 11.18 basis bought from May 2011 thru Nov 2013. The main downside for me regarding their recent announced purchases is the coal as I really do not like coal as an investment. Since I am averaging around 16.5% annual gain over[...]

Hello Travis, I bought MPW on 9/4 & 9/5 with a basis of 11.58 after reading about it on your site in July. So for me it's yielding 6.9% on my basis and has a 10.63% capital gain so far this year. I would've mentioned it, but forgot to. It would be nice if[...]
