    George-

    I am quite serious George. When I was writing for SA I never, ever recommended that anyone buy any stock that I discussed. My advice was for them to do their DD.

    The problem with SA is that their are too many "experts" writing, most of whom don't know diddly - they are here to try to make a little extra money from page views.

    A few year ago, SA was interesting and informative, now there are probably about two handfuls of writers worth reading.

    George-

    I actually like a lot of your FTG portfolio.

    I have the comments I made when you were implementing your crazy BBEP and LNCO/LINE strategy. Anyone whom was silly enough to keep buying these down lost a bunch of money (you included, from reviewing the dates on my comments).

    If an author makes a recommendation (tells readers to buy or sell), then he/she is sure as hell responsible to give them a heads up when it is time to close the position. How do you think a broker operates?

    market-

    I might be wrong, but I do not remember him writing an article advising his followers to get out of BBEP and LINN/LNCO (hopefully he did).

    I know his strategy was to continue buying both on drops. If anyone is still following this silly strategy, they are in one heck of a hole - one that is inescapable.

  • Retired Dividend Growth Investors Are Lulled Into A False Sense Of Security [View article]
    George-

    Speaking of BBEP, LINE/LNCO could you put up the link to the article where you got your followers out of these without suffering tremendous losses?

    As you might remember, I warned time and time again about distribution cuts and/or eliminations and that your strategy of continuing to buy the declines would lead to trouble.

    You will note that MEMP made a new 52 week low after the announcement. Owning any E&P MLP's automatically qualifies one for a visit to the head doctor.

    Beg to differ, but I do not think there is such a thing as a SWAN mREIT.

    Is all of that the result of currency?

    CPG is an E&P that is not coming anywhere close to covering the dividend, which has been slowly declining since 6/2014.

    You are aware that CMLP is being absorbed by its GP, CEQP, aren't you?

  • Linn Energy - Buy When There's Blood In The Streets [View article]
    Perhaps we should wait until there are dry bones in the street.

    IMO, buying any of the E&P MLP's is pure foolishness. More distribution cuts (elimination) coming for all of them.
