  • Columbia Pipeline Partners Offers MLP Investors 25% Total Return Opportunity [View article]
    If it prices between $19 and $21 and pays a minimum of $.67 quarterly, how do you come up with a 3.35% yield? More like 13.4%, but I bet there is a mistake here.

  • Nuveen Credit Strategies Income Fund: A Solid Core Holding For CEF Investors [View article]
    papaone -

    I follow ARDC and TSLF more closely than ACP - here are my thoughts:

    1. JQC, ARDC and TSLF have all been in price declines for a few years.
    2. JQC's NAV has performed a bit better than ARDC and TSLF.
    3. JQC has cut the div five times in recent years, ARDC and TSLF have not.
    4. JQC yields <6%, ARDC yields just under 9%, TSLF yields 8.5%

    Based on the above I would purchase ARDC and TSLF and not JQC.

    I do own some ARDC.

    Better CEF picks in the senior loan arena include: ARDC, TSLF and ACP. JQC pales in comparison.

  • ONEOK Partners: Pronounce It 'One Oak' Or 'Oh-Knee-Oak', It's Still A BUY [View article]
    Think I last saw where OKS was 77% fee-based. The debt/EBITDA is a bit high though at about 4.5X.

    I started a small position yesterday.

    It means that I wrong thinking that MEMP would cut its distribution at this time.

    Have to say I missed the call on MEMP cutting, but happy for those of you who held on.

    Hopefully, they will not have to cut in April.

    Indio-

    Simple solution to this subject. If the author does not own, or not planning to buy the stock(s) he writes about, then do not use the word "Buy" in the title.

    Substitute the word "Consider" for "Buy".

    Skip-

    What happens this April when the E&P's re-work financing, credit lines etc. is, IMO when we will see the major impact of oil/NG pricing on the E&P's. Those that do not bite the bullet and cut now might well be faced with the prospect of making even bigger cuts or eliminating distributions entirely then.
