  • 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.

  • A High Dividend Stock Yielding 10% With 6 Straight Dividend Hikes And More On The Way [View article]
    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".

    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.

    I am aware that a lot of those reading this article are holders of BBEP units. BBEP is one step away from eliminating the distribution completely. Unfortunately LINE, LNCO and VNR are probably not too far behind.

  • Take These Dividends And Call Me In The Morning: Inoculation For A Bear Market [View article]
    George-

    Just a quick note. BBEP further cut the distribution from $1.00 to $.50 today.

    LINE, LNCO likely to follow.
