    No, it is about a strategy to protect principal. Look at the first five or six articles in the series (began July 2012).

  • Protected Principal Retirement Strategy: It's The MLPs For Total Return [View article]
    If you look at their historic performance, the pricing certainly does fluctuate, as it does with every stock. However, in bear markets, most retain, or increase distributions.

    For example, during the bear market of 2007-2009, many of the best quality MLPs had their stock price cut by 40% or so. But, the best of the bunch continued to increase distributions. Now, the prices have recouped all of their losses and then some. Those whom continued to buy at depressed prices now have yields well in double digits.

    For a more complete picture on the Protected Principal Retirement Strategy you might want to read the initial five or six articles in the series (started in July 2012).

    I am not interested in a potential position in KMP. The Hedgeye news was unfolding so I quickly included EPB and KMI as part of the article.

    Yes I do. I included them solely based upon the recent news.

  • More on Hedgeye's takedown of Kinder Morgan companies [View news story]
    I personally don't see Richard Kinder ignoring this attack. Don't own KMP or KMR but will be watching for a buy point.

    Let's see, illegal insider trading and a presence in Yemen. There must be hundreds of better opportunities than this.

    If an apology is in order I am sorry. However, too many folks seem to be wanting other to do their DD for them.

    I mentioned PSEC to him as an example. Also he might want to look at Factoids work in the BDC area.

    Take a look at some of John Fredriksen's companies. SDRL, SFL, NATDF etc.

    I would think that would be everyone's regret - who wouldn't want to own it @ $2.93?

    Of all metrics used to evaluate BDC's the Div/EPS ratio is one of the most important. TICC's is presently 110%. Earnings growth from 2012 - 2013 is -6.25%.

    If the NII continues to fail to cover the dividend payout, there will eventually be a dividend cut.
