    Not much of the production increases have happened on public lands. Almost all has been on private lands out of the reach of the synchophynts.

  • My Mad Method: 2013 EOY Review [View article]
    I think you made a mistake in dumping your MLP's. I hold them in my IRA, from which I have not taken any distributions and a personal account as a current income stream. I consider them too good for income and growth to not hold and refuse to be overly concerned about possible future tax consequences. I do hold a number of the same stocks that you have, so it is good to see that semi great minds can think in similar ways.

  • Northern Tier Energy Prefers Cushion In Cushing [View article]
    tmilarry, maybe you could help me with a little insight. Why does it make sense for NTI to be expanding their retail outlet base when someone like Hess is looking to sell off their outlets? P.S. long NTI.

    I bought 300 of these shares @ $24.28 in Jan of 2012. They have paid me a steady $56.64 a month like clockwork. Wish I had picked up 1000. Can't thank you enough for this little slice of sweetness.

  • As MLP glow fades a bit, Merrill offers four favorites, three new Buys [View news story]
    Does ML explain the "best days" or "Volatility may lurk in the sector" comments? I am of the opinion that, after all these years of investing, I am the best judge of where I should invest. I also believe that the "new energy", as I call it, is really in the the early stages and not past its best days as ML may have you believe. I'll do my own dd and go down with my own ship or sail into the sunset under my own flag.

  • Reduce Preferred Stock Portfolio Volatility With These Issues [View instapost]
    OXLCO at its current price of $22.69 would be currently yielding a return of about 8.25% or so, not the 7.5% you show in the graph. Looks like a carry from the 7.5% coupon yield.
