Re: EXETF & Sabra comparison

I used Sabra for multiple reasons.

First, it was a recent spinoff transaction and it performed well for me, so it was for illustrative purposes for those who followed the portfolio.

Re: Nice article on the BAC warrants and common

Thanks for posting, JohnBelg. The author goes through a very reasonable scenario for the value of BAC common at year-end 2018. Using his base growth assumptions, that equates to an annualized return of about 29% over four years. Again, that's using [more]

Re: TFSL, EXETF and CBB & down market effect

This is one of the joys of special situations -- because we have company-specific catalysts that create value we have less exposure to the whims of the market. In the case of EXETF, it's going to be very resistant to a market downturn as long as we [more]

Re: TFSL: Quarterly divdend announcement

They had such a huge percentage of people who voted for the waiver that it looks pretty clear for the immediate future that the dividend should continue. What was it, 97%? That's as clear as can be. But certainly, because they require a vote every [more]

Re: Latest RMP Buy -- CBB

Yes, we'll continue to need a good performance from CONE. It's doing very well so far, and the it looks like the industry dynamics are still in place for it to continue to do well.

Re: CBB going wireless -- effect?

Yes, it could hurt at the margin, to the extent that people want their services bundled and like to have one provider. And the wireless unit was still cash generative, so while it was declining, management was reducing costs to keep the cash flowing [more]

Re: TFSL: Quarterly divdend announcement

It's always possible for them to do a tender to accelerate things, but I don't expect that to happen. Rather, I expect about $140 mn in buybacks per year. With profits growing to over $60 mn (and maybe $70 and $80 mn soon), it will take them years to [more]

Re: Regulations on non-traded REITS

Hey, booz,

While the regulations may make things (pricing) more transparent, the sponsoring companies will have a variety of ways to get their fees out of the deals, even if it (maybe) takes longer to do it. On the margin, it's probably a [more]
