    1. TOP is a Chinese company. I know they have a big operation in Hong Kong. Even though I own companies in China (and HK).

      Even though I own companies in China and HK, I wouldn’t invest a penny in a publicly traded Chinese company (especially the ones trading on the western stock exchanges). Too much uncertainty about gov. policy (US and Chin), Too much “pump and dump”, Too many companies going public (bringing in US dollars) only to have Chinese policy “magically” change and tank the company.

  1. Janet “I’m monitoring the situation closely” yellen needs to be fired immediately

  2. RWT Surprised me, but still more of a higher risk than I would like. It reported investments in technology companies which I still have memories of from my investments in 2001

  3. Merchants Bancorp also delivered a solid first quarter with increased deposits relative to year end 2022 and earnings exceeded the first quarter of 2022 but not the fourth quarter of 2022. Like many banks in the last twelve months, it is increasingly relying on interest bearing deposits which is hurting margins but dividend coverage remains good.

  4. Gaslog mentioned in its press release that the new interest rate for B-preferred is 10.78% for the quarter ending 6/15/23. While they note that the B preferreds are now redeemable, they also report that they have been buying preferreds in the open market ($49 million/yr), which is a cheaper way to go. (They also repaid $321M of debt in the quarter.) Since the B was originally $100 million at the IPO, it would not surprise me to see a partial call at some point if the delisting “fear trade” posts end and B drifts back above par. DYODD.

    1. Since inception of the Repurchase Programme and up to April 27, 2023, GasLog Partners has repurchased and cancelled 665,016 Series A Preference Units, 1,103,618 Series B Preference Units and 938,955 Series C Preference Units at a weighted average price of $24.64, $25.01 and $25.03 per preference unit for Series A, Series B and Series C, respectively, for an aggregate amount of $67.6 million including commissions.

    2. RE: GLOP-A/B/C
      “In the three months ended March 31, 2023, there were no repurchases of preference units, due to an extended blackout period in relation to the Transaction.”
      Did the blackout period, and hence prohibition of repurchasing units, end when the merger agreement was signed by the board or is it extended until the Transaction has been completed, i.e. merger has been completed?

    1. CUBI reports a large increase in non interest bearing deposits but total deposits are down. Absent PPP, the earnings comparison is less clear but the cash flow coverage of preferred dividends is good. 🙂
