  • National Oilwell Varco - Standing Strong In The Midst Of The Storm [View article]
    Hi all,
    M* has some depressing things to say today about NOV's prospects and bumped NOV down to narrow moat from wide moat. Does anyone think that M* will move the market?

  • The Most Predictable REITs In 2015 [View article]
    Dear Brad,
    Happy, healthy New Year to you, and thank you so much for all that you do.
    I live in LA and am watching apartment buildings go up seemingly everywhere.
    I know IRT operates elsewhere ( KY and TN, e.g.), but do you think it is worthy of an investment ( obviously, you don't think it is too worthy, or it would appear in your rankings)?

  • Buying Gold Beneath Spot [View article]
    When you sell GLD after holding it over a year in a taxable account do you get a long term capital loss?

  • Barron's: Five oils to buy now [View news story]
    Even so, lords, it's interesting to hear what the so-called smart money is, or purports to be, doing.
    Nice summary, Mr. Alper. Thanks.

  • What To Do When Your Energy Stocks Are Getting Hammered [View article]
    Aaaaaaaaack! I meant to say XEC, not XLE. My deceased husband bought XEC many years ago. I don't know what his basis was. It's in a taxable account. It isn't one of the majors, but Morningstar says it's a solid company. Any advice? Thanks to all who commented on XLE--sorry about that.

  • Income Investor Tips For Tax-Loss Harvesting [View article]
    Thanks for this article. I "caught a falling knife" with SLB ( bought when the price decreased, but then it REALLY decreased). The loss is short term. Should I harvest this loss, or does it have no value? I am anticipating capital gains distributions from the mutual funds I own because the market is so rich, and would like to be able to set these off but I have no long term losses.

    My deceased husband bought XLE many years ago -- i don't know what his basis was. I DO know it is worth a lot less today than it was the day before the Saudi decision. Any advice? Thanks.

  • The One Sector You Must Own Today (Part 3 Of 3) [View article]
    Yikes. This is the one sector I wish I owned less of today. Looks much worse for tomorrow. Sell, lighten up, hold through it?
    I am glad that Iran, Russia and Venezuela are unhappy. But I wonder if the energy jobs which have been so wonderful in places like North Dakota will go away and our economy will suffer, too!?

  • Retirement Strategy: Beware, Not All Dividend Growth Stocks Are Created Equal [View article]
    Thanks, RS, for writing this just when I was considering a recommendation of MAT by Richard Band. You have articulated why MAT doesn't belong in a buy and hold portfolio.

    Rereading this article, Bret, because it seems to be happening again today (IRT issuing shares, stock price drops after hours).

  • Shale Oil Production Offers Positive Talking Point For Chevron [View article]
    Thank you for this article, Ms. Warren. I am overweight energy and thus the past few weeks have been very disheartening. Re CVX's beginning to recover, I note that energy is up big across the board today. But why? And do you think we've seen the bottom? Nothing has changed that I know of vis a vis the Saudis; is it that the election results make it more likely that Keystone will be built ?
