  • ONEOK Needs To Consider Consolidation [View article]
    I hit both the kmp and wpz mergers - just sold out of oks. I didn't want to have to worry about a distribution cut.

  • Publicly Traded Partnerships - U.S. Taxation For Limited Partners [View article]
    Very informative (albeit complex) article. I would like to add that of my ten MLPs and corresponding K1s, only two were received by 'mid March' - most were received last week of February / first week of March, if I recall.

    As for CPA fees this year (which were considerable), investors also have their own 'financial engineering' - I merely take those fees out of my discretionary (i.e. money that WAS going to be spent) spending :)

  • Why McDonald's Can't Save Itself - The Myth Of Core [View article]
    Nearly everything is at all-time highs. My YUM investment is my most profitable investment, and they're not doing that much better than MCD.

  • Coke Is Rock Solid Heading Into Earnings [View article]
    Absolutely right. Also, all the talk about how McDonalds tastes like crap...where did this come from? MCD food no longer cool? My generation was stuffing their face on it not ten years ago, and if you pass by a MCD at lunch they're stuffing their faces today.

    You avoid it because of HFCS? ...Your avoidance has nothing to do with the empty calories?

    I too am a millennial but I don't let the 'Food Babe' blog influence my decisions. I'm busy - I don't have time to burn off calories I don't need. Simple as that. Healthy diet during the week, party on the weekend.

    I also was up some 20% on my stock, as opposed to having to average down now lol

  • Enterprise Products Partners Or Kinder Morgan Inc.? [View article]
    I had 10 K-1's this year - accountant did them within an hour. Tax Bill was slightly higher this year (like 4.5x more, haha), but I have my own 'financial engineering' (eat out at Subway less for a bit) to mask that charge.

  • Procter & Gamble declares $0.6629 dividend [View news story]
    Executive compensation always gets a better increase - they're 'deserving', remember?

    Manageable increase - nothing to make a rash decision about.

  • C. R. Bard declares $0.22 dividend [View news story]
    I have a half position and was eagerly watching the last drop in price - figured it would drop more than 5%. Oh well, cash is not necessarily a bad thing in times like this.

  • Kinder Morgan misses by $0.01, misses on revenue [View news story]
    KMI's commodity exposure is concentrated in its modest oil extraction and CO2 operations if I recall. Exposure is there but not crippling.

  • Why I Prefer Kinder Morgan Over Enterprise Products Partners [View article]
    I did not have to file (according to the CPA that did my taxes - heaven help me if he's wrong...).

    I am a partner in 10 partnerships, however the max investment in a single firm is 3k. Also, most of my MLPS recorded income losses. If this means anything.

  • A Single Mother's Income - Dividend Growth Investing [View article]
    You would figure it would be the older investors -- those very near retirement -- that would be selling in panic during a bear market.

    Anyways, none of the stocks I own are going anywhere without some massive consumer-based transformation, something that would/should* be visible many years out. KO/PEP come to mind, but with ~40% of the world's population still 'coming online', I'll continue to sit on the sidelines and watch that play out.

    Bear market? Bring it - my P/E ratio for my portfolio is rather high. I'd like to average that down...

    Would you like the in-state, or out-of-state rate on that?

  • OPEC governor: oil at $100-$120 again a long shot [View news story]
    My entire taxable account is in pipes. Consequently, my entire taxable account is barely treading water (right now) :)
