You Ask, Peltier Answers: Apollo, Energy, Berkshire

Stocks in this article: AINVXTOCOP

Throughout the trading week on Stockpickr Answers, investing professionals answer questions posed by members of the Stockpickr community.

Recently, David Peltier ( TheStreet.com Dividend Stock Advisor) responded to a round of timely questions.

Here are a few of those questions and Peltier's answers.

  • Picked up Apollo Investment (AINV) on Wednesday March 11 . March 17 is the ex-dividend date. Juicy yield, but it appears that the company won't be able to pay it. I'm thinking of taking the profits right now and running. Any other thoughts?
  • Peltier: Congrats on the trade. And no, the current dividend still doesn't look too safe. To read more, visit Stockpickr.com.

  • Anybody else's energy plays been getting clobbered in this market rally? I bought XTO Energy (XTO) and ConocoPhillips (COP). COP is up...for me and XTO is down... Why are they energy stocks getting beat up?
  • Peltier: Can't speak for the whole group, though COP didn't impress at its analyst meeting on March 11 . And it's hard for natural gas to rally. To read more, visit Stockpickr.com.

  • Now they Fitch Ratings want to downgrade Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A), stating Warren Buffet Berkshire Chairman and CEO as the reason. Is this a joke or what?
  • Peltier: I'm not a big fan of the ratings agencies. In fact, I'm surprised that Congress hasn't tried to put them out of business. To read more, visit Stockpickr.com.
