  • Cover Gasoline Costs With An 8% Yielding MLP Investment [View article]
    I had a feeling that someone would leave a comment like that. MLPs are energy related, that's why - it kind of goes along with the 'if you can't beat 'em, join 'em' philosophy. I'm just presenting a creative way of looking at things. I would invest in Walmart to pay for groceries.

  • Investing Means 6, 12 And 18 Years, Not Months [View article]
    I would never consider an airline a great investment. They have a long history of going bankrupt, American Airlines being the most recent one. Some of them go through multiple bankruptcies over the years, but still survive. However, every bankruptcy results in all money invested in a stock, lost.

    Despite this, staying diversified among multiple companies is the wise choice to prevent this risk.

  • Investing Means 6, 12 And 18 Years, Not Months [View article]
    I like the author's article - this is great advice. There's a lot of noise out there in the media because they need something to talk about. There is a difference in investing for the long-term and gambling in the short-term. The majority of our hard-earned money should be invested for 6, 10, or more years in quality companies. The occasional short-term trade should only be done with money that you can afford to lose or would otherwise spend at the casino.

  • Energy: A Compelling Sector To Own [View article]
    Are you in favor of MLPs? or MLP ETFs?
    Many MLPs are the toll takers of the energy industry - getting an 8% yield from them is not too bad. http://seekingalpha.co...

    A good resource for learning about individual MLPs can be found here:

    Also, I would like to reiterate that YMLP is an ETF that is taxed as a corporation, so you'll get a 1099 form, not a K-1 from.

    poorboyjohnny,

    Just to clarify - The article is written with the intention that investors already have a diversified portfolio. I never said for investors to put all of their money into this one fund. I do realize that not everyone has that much, but it can be considered for those who do.

    Furthermore, telling everyone to pull their money out of 401k plans & mutual funds is not good advice. Many investors are accumulating significant wealth through 401k plans.

    Yes, have your money diversified among a variety of assets - cash emergency fund, 401k, IRA, 403B for retirement (which should include both stocks and bonds), and a diverse basket of high-quality individual stocks.

    The diversity of mutual funds will reduce the risk of any scams - just use reputable companies.

  • How To Play Jeremy Siegel's Dow 17,000 Prediction [View article]
    1234gel,

    I believe that you are correct, sir. Despite all of the negative bull from the Obama admin. that his plan won't add up, Romney has the best plan to get the economy growing at a good pace again. Let's get the U.S. back on its feet and running efficiently again - vote for Romney.

  • Almost No One Makes Money From The Stock Market Alone [View article]
    pkvanwinkle,

    You have the realistic viewpoint. The author has the mind frame that stocks are stuck in the current consolidation period, but this will not last forever. The economy and the stock market has cycles - unless the world ends, we will see the market soar to new highs once again.

  • Facebook: Short-Term Trading Opportunities, Long-Term Outlook [View article]
    Hello All,

    Well, Facebook got it's bounce higher - how is 19% in one day - not bad.

    Just a note for Alain - it's not necessary to be glued to the screen, just place a limit sell order at your desired exit level.

    Also,

    I am not talking about trading the chart, I am giving investors some long-term perspective with the chart & emphasizing a proper allocation strategy. This is how 401k plans/ IRAs are managed & this can be done inside and outside a retirement plan.

    Well,

    I think I gave prudent advice by telling people to ensure that they have the proper asset allocation for their age. What better advice do you have?

    So, you think that the market will never recover? Get real.

    You're right, I should have been more careful. I am going to have these things corrected.

    Although management doesn't have specific plans to raise prices next year they said that they are open to the possibility of price increases, given inflation expectations related to the drought.
