  1. CHSCM looks like a pretty decent buy today. I was able to sell last week for $25.35 and I’ve been buying back over the last few days where there have been weakness in the CHS issues.

    I’m kind of surprised that KTH hasn’t found its way into your portfolio.

  2. I actually nibbled on some ATH-D at $16.17…will add some over time – so far, it’s just a tiny position – as cash opens up in the account, I’ll add a bit.

  3. Tim,
    I saw your Entergy ETI- and went into a semi panic. I went the Entergy bond route back in 2009, just flashed through my mind this is my second largest position and they mature in 4 months ! Nope, maturity is 10/1/24 🙂
    Thanks for posting your positions. I know we all must do our own due diligence, but your due diligence is heads and shoulders above mine, so when I see we both own a few of the same issues my confidence level goes up a few notches.

    1. Hi Bill – just remember that some of these are small positions while some are overweight–with these banks and insurance companies I think a basket of issues is better than betting on 1 or 2 horses.

    1. David–there is no explanation and I will probably eliminate that since it might be useful but only if on can update them constantly. Was a NOT good idea when the website was originally built.

  4. Thanks, Tim. Your continued transparency and great work is much appreciated, which reminds me it’s almost time for another contribution to help you keep it going.

      1. Thanks Brett–I certainly appreciate it–in fact just got back from the tech folks office and spent a chunk on so items that needed attention (add on updates, google analytics changeover, and a few minor cosmetic items). Also for a couple years I have been running without a tech ‘babysitter’ so I needed to flesh out a tech support program with them.

    1. You’re most welcome Dave–I still enjoy it, but as always time is a constraint.
