sure thing Charlie. i picked up some more today as well. i have 15 total now which is just a little less than 1% of my total holdings. i have another one you might want to check out in case you do not own, but from what i recall you might not like this because its a privately held company. its also a mixed bag of sorts.

however for me on the plus side it works, because it has bonified tangible asset(s) coverage and a recovery rating of 2.

Black Elk Energy Offshore
CUSIP = 09203YAC5
trading $98ish or so
coupon = 13.75%

over the last 6 months i have been drastically tweaking my model and buying strategy; paying much more attention and focus to asset coverage and potential recovery scenarios. as you obviously know, given the current environment, it makes it even more challenging.
