Re: PRAA - a bargain?

I tend not to invest in small caps - PRAA is my only one - but I'll have a look at that newsletter and see if it's for me.

What are your thoughts on PRAA? I haven't kept up with them (or any of my companies) as diligently as I should.

PRAA - a bargain?

SW made a comment to kelbon the other day asking him to divulge any bargains he had hidden up his sleeve.

I was looking at PRAA's chart today and it reminded me of that comment:

Re: Is EPD a buy today?

Getting in 10 years ago with a yield of ~10% would have been a phenomenal return with dividends reinvested.

I don't understand the business much at all - can you explain their moat? Seems like a lot of people do what they do- pipe and ship [more]

Re: A Little Research ...

Chase only looks like they offer .03% for "savings plus" - where are you getting 0.9%?

Re: A Little Research ...

The majority is in retirement funds (traditional/roth IRAs) - so it's just sitting there.

The rest is in a checking account because I didn't think a Money Market account was worth opening due to interest rates being near zero. I'll go have a [more]

Re: Once in a Blue Moon Update

Thanks for the link- sounds like a good opportunity, but I'd prefer to see consistent growth in EPS first. This is probably a great time to get in if they can continue to produce good results, but I'd rather see the results first.

Once in a Blue Moon Update

Hi All - I'm back from hibernation to do a little research and see how everything is going with my severely neglected portfolio. I've not made hardly any trades in the last year - only one to sell my one gamble/fun money stock. I lost [more]

Re: Buyers for Precision Cast Parts (PCP)

Re: A Little Research ...

Thanks for this list - I'm trying to put together some ideas of my own. I have to admit, I feel pretty good about being in on Apple at a double right now - though it's about 20% of my port. That is dangerous, but I am reluctant to get rid of any. [more]
