  • Electric Cars: A Matter Of Cost [View article]
    mrEnergyCzar,

    I never compared the Volt to a Cruze, I compared it to a Malibu, which is realistic.

  • Electric Cars: A Matter Of Cost [View article]
    Thank you Car Buyer,

    That's another huge problem with electric vehicles. What's it going to be worth when the battery needs replacing? Not a great resale value there. However, leasing may make sense.

    Honda is making an electric Fit that is only available for lease at about $389 per month. That's still not in my price range, but may make sense for some drivers.

  • Seeking Yield? Get Over 11% With REM [View article]
    Mr. Swartzbaugh,

    The management fee is the price to pay for the convenience of owning a basket of managed stocks. This will protect you from individual stock risk such as a bankruptcy of an individual stock. If you are more comfortable owning individual stocks, then do that. It depends on the taste of the individual investor.

  • Get MLP Yield Without The Tax Hassles [View article]
    Yebrevo,

    Calm your spinning head. There is no one size fits all investment. Just look at the info objectively, and pick what is right for your situation. If KMP works for you, then stick with it.

    TGC004,

    Thank you for bringing the UBTI and K-1 form issues to my attention. The 1st paragraph has been tweaked to reflect more clarified/accurate statements.

    Yes, although unrelated to energy and MLPs, AT&T does have a higher yield than KMI. If you're seeking the highest yield, you may want to look at MREITS such as NLY, CMO - with yields over 10%, they're not too shabby.

    rip2451,

    "No later than April 1" - that's still pretty late isn't it? I would guess that many investors new to MLPs would have already filed their taxes by then, thus the need to file for an extension.

    Hi Niners,

    I guess it depends on which MLP is sending you the K-1. Obviously the MLPs that you are invested in are timely - please share with us which MLPs you are investing in.

    TGC004,

    The source was from http://bit.ly/SnwKMz
    I would encourage you to update this information on that website since you are knowledgeable on the tax matters.

  • Weighing The Risk/Reward Relationship Of Banks And The XLF [View article]
    Yes,

    I think that as the bank's balance sheets continue to improve, the stocks will eventually meet and exceed their book value per share.

    Sorry, if some statements sounded misleading. I did my research, but the source did not specify certain things such as UBTI.

    I don't think I or anyone else said that KMI was an MLP. What I said was that investing in KMI will give you an MLP type yield without the tax hassles.

    smurf,

    Yes the trailing PE is high, but that is based on past earnings which were low. The PEG ratio is under 2 & the price to book ratio remains below 3 - I would put more weight into those metrics in this case since the future earnings growth is expected to be above 20% annually.

  • Sarepta Therapeutics Looks Highly Undervalued [View article]
    I agree that a phase 3 trial is most likely. The drug could be made available to more patients in a larger study. This would benefit those new patients and ensure that there are no safety concerns with the drug.

    As far as valuation: The stock should gap up on any new positive information. If the results of the 48 week study are positive, the stock should see a bounce. The fact that an approval is not guaranteed, will keep the stock below the author's projected price. Once approval is granted and the actual selling price is known, then your forecast of $40 will eventually be realized.
