  • This Might Be A Good Time To Consider Linn Energy [View article]
    Interesting article, thanks for the write up. I see a distribution cut before year end. Also, LINE isn't an MLP but for conveniences sake I'd understand you calling it an MLP.


    Edit: I own a small position in LNCO.

  • Crossing $55,000 In Market Value And $2,000 In Dividend Income [View article]
    I have my "fun" portfolio of 15k that throws off 1,200 in dividends. Super high risk though. Have to have some exciting things in investing or I'd lose interest!

    I own ETV and have been very happy the last couple of years. Was thinking about adding ETJ to my portfolio but I'm not sure yet.

  • Thousand Dollar Portfolio - Start Your Child Right [View article]
    I'm not a tax expert but I thought up to a certain amount was tax free like $1k? I could be wrong though. I think for most people that's going to cover most gains/dividend taxes for the year.

    Why would you put different mix in? Could cause jealousy down the road. Also BND they are in elementary I personally don't even believe in bonds when you're 50. Only when retired are bonds of any value. Good diversification though. I wish my parents would have thought about investing even a grand for me back when I was born. They should be very appreciative! Good luck!

  • 20 Years In The Chevron DRIP [View article]
    I've been an investor in Kraft since 2010 and haven't been disappointed. When it changed to Mondelez I sold that and held on to the KRFT will be interesting to see what this merger brings about!

    Whatever the platform you use should be keeping track of you cost basis information since around 2012 this was changed. Not a bad idea to hold onto statements still however.

    This is recently what I just did, turned off all my DRIPs and now will accumulate cash and purchase either additional holdings or invest in a beaten down stock already in my portfolio. I feel this is better use of cash rather than reinvesting no matter what the price of the stock is currently at.

    Be a big bank, lend money from the federal reserve at .25% and buy U.S. treasuries, free money basically!

    Thank you for the clarification. Yes it would be a good idea to hold onto that spread sheet. It could be a huge pain!

    I thought after 2012 all cost basis must be reported to the IRS from your brokerage instead of the investor and tax preparer trying to figure it out. Unless I miss understood something.

  • REITs can't catch a bid as averages slide [View news story]
    Yes, I understand. I love CEFs too with the big yields due to leverage. Just sit back reinvest them over time so they compound and distributions grow even bigger. They definitely have a place in an overall portfolio.
