  • Siren Song: Don't Be Lured To Linn Energy For Its Yield [View article]
    Thank you for the comment. Investors would be better buying the bonds which yield 12%+. The whole industry represented by XLE is down 26% over the last year, and LINE down 76%. The 15% yield does not make up even close to the 50% difference in performance.

  • Magellan Midstream Partners: Quality Growth And Income [View article]
    Thank you for the comment. As I noted in my article, "The Saddlehorn pipeline goes from the Niobrara oil field in Colorado to storage facilities in Cushing operated by Magellan and Plains." Companies who are sending the oil to Cushing for storage will have to pay for it to be stored at Magellan or Plains facilities, which will increase revenues.

  • Magellan Midstream Partners: Quality Growth And Income [View article]
    Thank you for the comment. I agree that MMP is a great combination of growth and income. While the yield may be "low" for some, they have increased dividends almost every quarter since their IPO in 2001 and they have numerous projects that will lead to future growth.

    @alschroed Thank you for the comment, however, I have to really disagree with you. MMP has a lower yield because it is a higher quality and growth oriented company when compared to KMI, PAA, or EPD.

    Since MMP IPO in 2001, Total Returns:

    MMP: +2149%
    PAA: +882%
    EPD: +748%

    Since 2011 When KMI started trading:

    MMP: +210%
    KMI: +46%
    PAA: +68%
    EPD: +74%


    Also, looking at future growth estimates from Zacks MMP has the highest growth potential of the companies you mentioned.

    MMP: +11.47%
    KMI: +8.07%
    PAA: +6.60%
    EPD: +7.82%

    Looking at ttm profit margins:

    MMP: 35.37%
    KMI: 7.40%
    PAA: 3.40%
    EPD: 6.17%

    Finally, look at dilution through increased shares outstanding change last 3 years.

    MMP: +0.41%
    KMI: +92.91%
    PAA: +17.38%
    EPD: +10.09%


    In summary, MMP has a lower yield because in my opinion it is the highest quality pipeline company.

    MMP compared to competitors you listed:

    -Highest total return
    -Highest Growth
    -Highest Profitability
    -Virtually no dilution

  • The Apple Watch Fuss Is Overblown [View article]
    On the fourth of July, I talked with two people who both had a Fitbit (FIT). I asked how they liked it and they said they loved it. Then I asked if they had considered or would consider getting an Apple watch, and it was a firm NO.

    Disclosure: I do not own Apple or Fitbit shares.

  • The Most Secure DGI Stock [View article]
    Thank you for your comments and Thank you for reading my article. Yes HD is cyclical, however, it has proven itself to be a secure dividend stock. Its payout ratio of 47% is still low and the dividend has plenty of upside.

  • Home Depot: A Secure Dividend Growth Stock [View article]
    Thank you for the comments and thoughts on all the behind the scenes technology that is required. Competing against Amazon can be difficult, however, I believe Home Depot can be successful.

  • Home Depot: A Secure Dividend Growth Stock [View article]
    I believe HD has been down because over the last 4 months interest rates spiked, which brought on thoughts of how that would impact housing, which would impact HD. Also, the overall market has been week as well.
