  • 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.

    While I hold some LXP it was bought on the possibility of a takeover at a higher price. I looked at the analysts opinions on my Fidelity account and of the 8 analysts who follow LXP four had as a sell, two underperform, 2 neutral and one actually had a buy rating. Overall the rating was very negative. What do you think brings about such a strong dislike for LXP?

    Just take the divis and buy something else. Bond type investment if you can pry some away from a current holder.

    What would be wrong with owning the oxlco preferred. It currently is trading below par $22.65 and paying monthly with a 8% plus return?

  • BreitBurn Energy's Q3 Net Loss Is Net Highly Misleading  [View article]
    Have a fair position in bbep and have decided to drip for at least the next two years. Then will take distributions when I officially retire. A good income vehicle that I hope to ride for the next 10-12 years.
