  • Rethinking KKR & Co. - Exposure To The Oil Patch Lowers Short-Term Profits [View article]
    nicholas davout,
    I am looking for KKR to report last quarter and to make some comments on its exposure to oil and gas.
    I agree with you that oil and gas can not stay as low as it is for a long time, I am pretty sure that within 2 years that oil and gas will be going up. However, 1 year at current prices can be a long time for oil and gas producers that are overextended. KKR is definitely exposed to some of these producers... it is just hard to determine the amount of the exposure KKR has to them as well as the time frame when oil and gas start going up again. This article was just meant to be cautionary.
    Thanks for your thoughtful remarks.
    Regards
    Henry

  • 7 Per Cent Dividend Return On This Preferred Issue: ML Depositor PPLUS Trust 6.30% R.R. Donnelley Certificates RRD-1 [View article]
    User 18510422,
    For the small investor, it is easier to purchase shares of the preferred at $25.00 per share or less than it is for one to purchase $3000 -$5000 worth of bonds. The stock is also more easily traded or more liquid than the bond.

    Ooi,
    There are similar structured securities:
    PPX
    RFT
    CTV
    AFGE
    TCRX
    TANO
    These are a few that i am aware of.
    You can look at these and see if they are worthy of your investment.
    Cheers

    rl1856,
    Your comments are correct... and PYS would be a good income holding in a tax preference account.
    Cheers

    ricksteph,
    The company is obligated to make the interest payments as long as it is an ongoing company outside of bankruptcy.

    The dividend is treated as interest and does not get the lower rate for tax purposes.
    Cheers

    You seem to be working a plan that fits your personality and agenda. Having reasonable goals and checking one's portfolio out consistently to meet those goals is a reasonable way to invest.
    I am with you on the matter of dividends. I want all of my investments to be paying me for the use of my money.
    Cheers

    You are certainly correct about not having all one's eggs in one basket. It is important to diversify one's portfolio. One never knows when an issue will fail because of an accident, mismanagement or outright skulduggery.
    I have chosen many bad stocks over my investment career. The key is to have more winners than losers.
    I try to do my research, sometimes it just doesn't pan out, but more often it does.
    Cheers

    I am not quite sure how to respond to your comment.
