    I am not recommending either way, just providing useful data for those who may be helped by the filtering process.

    I think the criteria used in the filter are important requirement for good choices, but are not sufficient to make a purchase determination, as I stated in my closing.

    There are 500+ stocks in the CCC list. This filter could save some investors many hours of work, if these criteria are important to them too. Not everybody has the time or tools to do the filter.

    It may be that once the universe is reduced by filtration, that none of the survivors are of interest, but you know that those that are not survivors did not meet the particular filter criteria.

    allday1234: I have written a number of article about MLPs in the past that may be helpful to you (check my list). Several other authors have written a lot too. Perhaps the place to begin is the "National Association of Pulicly Traded Partnerships" http://naptp.org

    Bob, me too on BAX, but thematically I think LMT is in the right area of defense, which after the Ukraine thing might result in a renewed focus on high tech defense and offense

    I also own NOC and RTN in the defense area

  • Risk Aware Investing, Part 1: Dividend ETFs [View article]
    SDS --- I understand your perspective. There are, however, investors who are not long-term because of their age, or who cannot withstand volatility due to current reliance on cash withdrawals to support life style, as well as those who simply can't sleep with the volatility (your assets should not make you miserable); then of course the active trader. Most of my work is with clients who has completed or substantially completed their life accumulation stage, and are in or near the state of regular cash withdrawals. They are more sensitive to major drawdowns than others in earlier stages of financial life.

    They are not doing Monte Carlo analysis, and by analyzing the individual stocks in the funds' portfolios they have more than 10 of data for most of the holdings

  • Be Watchful: Muni Tax Exemption Under Continued Attack [View article]
    I was early, but now its back:

    from Bloomberg:

    "The tax break for some investors in the $3.7 trillion municipal bond market would be curbed under changes proposed by the top House tax writer, a shift that may diminish the appeal of buying local-government debt.

    A plan released today by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, a Michigan Republican, would tax some municipal-bond income for the highest earners as part of broader changes that would lower rates. It would also eliminate the exemption for debt sold by localities to finance private projects"
