BLOW OFF TOP?

January 17, 2020. The markets continue higher and are extremely over-valued. We remain diligent still expecting some sort of pullback within the next month. There was one purchase this week in the Core Portfolio. We placed some buy orders for BIZD and GSBD with the hopes that we could buy at lower prices. Obviously that […]

BUYING: CAN U BELIEVE IT

January 14, 2020. SOJD is finally trading today. BUY SOJD at $25.32 or less…… This is an “investment grade” bond from a high quality Company. But note that it only pays a “low” 4.95% but we are ok with that due to the quality of Southern Co. Yes this position could pull back if we […]

There are still two open buy orders for GSBD and BIZD but it appears we will NOT immediately see the lower prices that we want: altho […]
