I've Read UNSCRIPTED
- Jul 23, 2007
"Fastlane" is an entrepreneur discussion forum based on The C.E.N.T.S Framework outlined in the two best-selling books by MJ DeMarco (The Millionaire Fastlane and UNSCRIPTED®). From multimillionaires to digital nomads to side hustlers who are grinding a job, the Fastlane Forum features real entrepreneurs creating real businesses with one goal in mind: Freedom— both financial and temporal.
note the 11% is not entirely dividend as some of it is ROC (if my memory serves correctly) and the entire distribution (not dividend) is taxed at 15% foreign witholding (if you are US citizen)... the 15% is credited at year end tax filing if you buy outside of any tax deferred vehicle. But if the purchase is made in your IRA, you can kiss the 15% good bye and the 11% distribution is more like 9.4%+/-For me, PVX (Provident Energy Trust) is a CRT that pays a hefty dividend (11%+) and recently took a dive to present a buying opportunity.
The change with the income trust structureAlso, recently passed legislation in Canada put the nail in CRTs coffin as CRTs are becoming disbanded. Govt was getting frustrated many of the trusts were forming to avoid taxes, but it turns out now the companies are seeking alternatives and are basically packing up and moving out of Canada... the political scene is wreaking havoc now so anything can change between now and enactment.
Hey Kimberland-However, existing trusts will likely stay trusts until 2011.
That means a few more years of status quo
which is more than can be said for any other structure
(which could change at any minute).
Firms are not packing up and leaving Canada.
They're getting bought out by foreign investors
because they're bargains.
Hope the short works out for you. I got out at a 6% gain over 3.5 months. That was after another 6% gain over 3 weeks. The liquidity crunch knocked the sails out of many stocks. AKS, I feel, was a combination play on commodities and takeover speculation. The takeover may be out of play for awhile now, but it is impossible to predict.Kidgas, I saw ur post on AKS on the RD Forum(Hot stock post) and shorted it promptly. Covered for a small profit and shorted again later.
I am back in this one at 94 and it is now at 99.25. I will hold till 100 then sell off, this one has a tendency to jump up and down over a week's period of time.I bought LVS at 80 and sold off yesterday at 97. To shed some light on this stock - it was down to 70's for two months then in a week and a half climbed to 108 and now is down to 94 in 4 days.
Mike, what is the technical side telling right now? I follow the news and think (hope) this is the buy time and if I am buying I am throwing most of my money in. What's everyone's take?
I went short on AKS today around 35.20. We'll see how it works out.Looks like AKS is up quite a bit today. Near term, I think there will be lots of volatility in the market.
VMW just wont stop.....and I dont own any :bgh: :smx4:
Shorted BCSI this morning and hoping to ride it down for a while. I don't forsee another rally anytime soon unless the FED interferes again.
