    First one goes at Israel. By the next day Iran will probably not exist.

    Best scenario of all is to avoid the entire E&P MLP sector and focus on buying the investment grade mid stream MLPs.

    "Plain language"?? I don't think the prez can be accused of this.

    Travis-

    Heard nothing about "one nuclear missile". One thing is certain and that is that the WH and Kerry capitulated on this deal. We will eventually find out how, and to what extent in a few months.

    Anyone who thinks Iran is going to honor any "deal" is just foolish.

    IMO, this will be the last straw for Israel and they will probably act soon.

  • Make Over 8.5% With A Multi-Sector CEF Bond Portfolio [View article]
    It doesn't make any sense to pay a premium for any CEF.

    USAC is better for comparative purposes than EXLP. USAC's dcf did not increase as much as CCLP's, and their coverage ratio was not as high.

    EXLP is another good choice in the MLP services sector.

  • Hot MLPs In April: 29% Yield, 57% Upside, 72% Net Gain [View article]
    Still cannot figure out what your articles mean. You obviously have very little knowledge of MLPs since you keep referring to "dividends".

    For the sake of our country let's hope that all bodes badly for June 30th - and for the prez between now and then.

    There is a very high potential for BBEP to eliminate the distribution entirely as they did in 2009.

    This is an E&P with one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel.

    "A recent article by Barron's, suggested oil could drop even lower to $20, at which I must strongly disagree. United States diplomacy would have to avoid that outcome"

    Interesting statement, but what does it mean? Our government (particularly the White House) would like nothing better than to see all exploration activities shut in. "Diplomacy" today is another word for "capitulation".

    Anyone with a knowledge of MLP's knows that chasing yield in the E&P sector is foolish. Bank re-determinations are going to impact far more than just BBEP - keep your eyes on VNR, LINE and LNCO, among others.

    If one is smart, put your money in the investment grade midstream MLP's.

    Before anyone accuses me of being a short I still hold a small long position in BBEP (was not able to unload it all) and have been writing covered calls against it.

  • Breitburn Energy Gets A White Knight, But Again Slashes Distribution Rate [View article]
    That's why I think folks should run from the E&P's as fast as possible. Keep their money in the investment grade midstreams like EPD, PAA, OKS, NGLS etc. Lower yields, but much less loss of sleep.

  • Breitburn Energy Cuts Distribution Again, Why I'm Sticking With Linn Energy [View article]
    Just my opinion FWIW - LINE and LNCO will probably follow BBEP with distribution cuts.

    "on the fact that there will be no more distribution cuts".

    And you know this how?

    Unfortunately, BBEP was one that did suspend distributions for one year in 2009-2010.
