This sets them apart from the other big investors that pursue more aggressive returns through higher risk loans. It seems that Cash-Flow has been investing primarily in lower risk loans (A-B).

Comment on Roundup of Social Lending News – April 28, 2012 by Peter Renton /news/roundup-of-social-lending-news-april-28-2012/comment-page-1/#comment-4872 Peter Renton Mon, 30 Apr 2012 23:33:14 +0000 /&p=4481#comment-4872 @Lou, With the weekly roundups I try to include articles that may be of interest to anyone involved in p2p lending. I will leave out an article if it is factually incorrect or adds nothing of value to the topic - but I thought the short article by Thomas DeLong was fine to include. There are few Prosper investors reporting their numbers compared with Lending Club so I like to include them when possible. And he made it clear that his current returns are trending around 15%. @Lou, With the weekly roundups I try to include articles that may be of interest to anyone involved in p2p lending.

Peter, please leave these out of future Roundups. Lou I’m sorry, but posting about your ‘seasoned’ returns being 24.5% when your portfolio is less than a year old doesn’t do the P2P segment any favors. Peter, please leave these out of future Roundups.

My previous design was much too cluttered, I think this makes the site easier to read. Thanks for the feedback. @Mike, That was the whole idea.

Comment on The Difference Between a Default and a Charge-off at Lending Club by hop hickory /investing-lending/the-difference-between-a-default-and-a-charge-off-at-lending-club/comment-page-1/#comment-4851 hop hickory Fri, 27 Apr 2012 04:10:32 +0000 /&p=4440#comment-4851 Thanks for your input guys. I guess I don't really have a handle as to how the APR is calculated. I was just subtracting the principle left on the loans from my gains. My portfolio is about 4 months old. As far as selling notes in Folio, I haven't signed up yet but I thought you couldn't sell notes that were sent to collections, which my two late loans were. Thanks for your input guys.
