I just made a $4500 donation to the Folio community
« on: March 29, 2017, 07:11:26 PM »
Well, kids, I'm hoping some of you kind souls just scored 80-90% discounts on Never Late, Current loans with FICOs between 630 & 659.  I made a bone-headed error in a selling formula... these should have been listed at around a 10% discount. The transactions have not cleared yet so maybe a few will get canceled due to payments but the carnage is very real.

If you were lucky enough to be on the receiving end of this unintended bargain and would like to help fund my therapeutic Scotch habit, you can assuage your guilt by making a donation to my paypal account: jon@pildis.com

Thanks for reading and always double-check you selling formulas!

So sorry to hear that. I did pick up some really fantastic never late notes the other day that had YTMs around 50. Made a post about them even.
Sounds like your notes were a lot better quality than I picked up.

I made a bone-headed error in a selling formula...

I made a bone-headed error in a formula one day and bought a bunch of notes I didn't want, but have never fouled it up on the sell side.  Scary, isn't it?  I routinely place automated orders for lotsa bucks, and hope I've done it correctly.

sorry to hear that.
why would you be selling them at 10% discount in the first place?

If you dont get enough contributions I recommend you switch to Auchentoshen American Oak. It is an exquisite drink and cheap as Borscht.

Well... sub-660 FICOs have a much higher propensity to default and the market dictates a 9-11% discount to get the yield up to 35-40%.

Thanks for the recommendation, though I like the smokey Islay stuff

Are these never late notes with age? if so, I must miss out on the gravy train when anyone sells with these parameters.

I didn't get them then. That's way outside my FICO range. ;)

sorry for your loss.  How do you filter notes in your portfolio by credit rating?  I place great stock in fico scores, and I'm pretty tired of having to open each and every single note to see anything but the meaningless arrow.

I created portfolios in LC for my notes based on their most recent FICO score.  You can see  the FICO in the notes download and it's generally updated every month.  It does take a 2-30 min each month to move notes around if they have had a big FICO change but it's worth it for me.  Once the portfolios are updated, executing a FICO-based selling strategy becomes pretty straight-forward.

I feel you pain man.
A little while ago, I was using NSR Investing to sell my bad notes. and I was listing the LATE notes at 15% discount.
Inreality I listed all my notes.. over 2000. By the time I realized it, my best notes were gone  :( :( :( :(
