Here's an interesting play. A closed end fund selling at a healthy discount to the NAV

GCS
Closed at 13.44
NAV = 14.81

All the fundamentals look terrible, but the value is there as a hedge.

EXM may be forming a base. Sell off on light volume. This stock can be highly volatile.

STM may present some buying oppportunities coming up.

A couple high yield opened ended bond funds are:

LBF and EHI - I have owned these since bonds got done tanking in early summer or so. Both yield around 8%, but they trade at a healthy discount to NAV.

What's up for next week? My plan only pops every 3rd tuesday. Have not bought in a while. Sold all my XM and Comcast. Thinking to buy Martha Stewart or Symantec or Merck. Willing to take a chance, but really I want another nice stock that went up steady like Rockwell. Ideas? [I dont know]

Not much, AJ, if history is any indication. The week of Christmas is pretty slow. Also the week between Christmas and New Years Day. The next big pop or drop will be the first week of the new year.

Do you still own ROK? I've been watching it, but so far haven't found an entry point.

I can't earnestly recommend individual stocks and not feel guilty if the stock plunges.

You can scan through my mentionables in this thread.

F and particularly FCZ may be worth a look. I just sold some of my F on an uptick the other day. FCZ is Ford preferred paying a nice dividend.

I have some ROK. Buying more of one that I already own is better come sales time. Comcast has been good to me. Symantec is looking like one pick, Martha Stewart another and maybe one more. I had some Delphi before, forget what happened. They have some good technology.
I am in for the long-long term, just lil amounts rather than a savings acct. My mom worked for Bell and ATT for years while collecting their stocks, she took a hard hit a few years ago by not being diversified. I am not too worried about loosing everything like she did, it's not my pension $ or anything. We will see, tuesday is the day! ps sorry about XOM, guys.

What's to be sorry about with XOM?

Have you checked out FCZ?

Now here is my latest skanky investment idea. Well actually I've been puking it out for a while.

I swear to budha SOME closed end funds are just too darn good to pass up. Discounts of 10-15% on GOOD funds holding GREAT companies and GREAT ASSETS. Some pay NICE yields spun out regularly. Sure there are risks. Please check it out. MS, Amkeer, LR. etc.......am I whacked????

CLOSED END FUNDS - do they make sense?

edit - fixed typos

Proud to be part of BITOG's longest thread!
Likely to continue to grow since the topic renews itself 5 days a week!

This thread is also fixing to be one year old (next month).....I remember I started it by screwing my portfolio badly! [Mad]

HA!

Could 05 be MOBL's year? To be honest, 04 was a very good year for a company that was almost non-existent in 03. We'll see what the new year brings!
