Lending Club IPO


I have been a Lending Club investor since 2010 and been pretty happy with the platform and returns. I have about $27k currently invested.

Tomorrow, Lending Club goes public and since I am a LC investor, I was given the chance to request shares at the IPO pre-market price.  I requested the max of 350 shares @ $15 a piece.  This is my first time that I have had the opportunity to invest in an IPO pre-market so I am kinda excited to see what happens tomorrow.

The way I look at it, this is pure gambling, I don't have too much capital at risk,  and I'm looking for a big pop.  Will probaly sell before the insider shares unlock.

Hopefully the shares perform better the my oil stocks!

INTC dividend increase




In a bit of a surprise, today, Intel announced that it is raising it's quarterly dividend from $.225 to $.24.

This represents a 6.6% raise and is the first raise since May 2012 when the quarterly dividend went from $.21 to $.225.
