  • Stay Married To Your MLP - Divorce Is Expensive [View article]
    1. Is there any consequence if the MLP has been held and sold within an IRA?
    2. If the recapture is taxed at LT cap rates can a deduction using LT cap loses be used as an offset?

  • U.S. Taxes: Who Makes And Who Pays - More Than The Rich Will Have To Pay More [View article]
    Raise taxes on the rich or anyone else is simply BS until a real conversation about the waist of how our tax dollars are spent takes place. Entitlements of all kinds must be addressed, the idea that a senator or congressman "brings home the bacon" needs to cease. We simply cannot afford the waist.

  • 3 Reasons Why Verizon Shareholders And Dividend Investors Should Buy Vodafone [View article]
    Dr. George,
    Like you I sold my position soon after the last divi. Didn't think there was much upward movement going to happen and better investments were available. Could be back in if price gets near your $20 figure.

  • Protected Principal Retirement Strategy: CEFs Equals Closed-Ends Falling? [View article]
    I have a question. At what point is the return of capital not a good thing, or when does it start to become a bad thing?

  • Exelon (EXC) has agreed to pay $400K to settle allegations it violated a court order limiting prices for electricity as part of an agreement approving its $7.9B acquisition of Constellation Energy Group Inc. EXC allegedly submitted offers to sell electricity at prices higher than those allowed by the order and failed “to take all the steps necessary to comply” with the court’s instructions, according to a filing by the DoJ. The company identified the bidding error and notified federal and state regulators. [View news story]
    Didn't one of EXC lawyers read the court order? It drives me mad when companies pay these fines for what seems like "stupid shit" I own exc and at the present time their on my list of stupid companies who can't seem to get it right. Their stock price is down about 30% in the last six to nine months. They need to get their collective heads out of where they sit.

  • MLPs Are Getting Crushed [View article]
    Obuma will be in office for four more years. (God save us). But keep this in mind, after that he will be gone. Yes, the damage will have been done but during his second tenure, the lights have to be lit, drivers will still need gas to get to work, we will need ng to heat our homes, etc. Even this leftist, socialist, marxist cannot shut everything down. Keep the faith investors, we have lived through worse and have a tendency to come back. I live by a simple rule when confronted with adversity, and that is simply, "This too shall pass"

  • Look To Hi-Crush For A 9% Yield With Limited Downside [View article]
    Unsuitale for IRA's is a debatable issue. I have eight of them in my IRA's and there has been no tax problem yet. They have been there for years. Line, bbep, bwp, etp, tlp and a couple more. Also a number of them in a personal account. The k-1's are easily handled by turbotax or a good tax accountant. Do not go by what you have heard, do your own dd and enjoy the distributions.

  • After a valiant effort, Mayor Bloomberg has thrown in the towel and cancelled the New York City marathon this weekend because of disruptions caused by superstorm Sandy. City officials had held out hope that the event could still be pulled off, in a demonstration that the city was on the road to recovery. Unfortunately, the logistical nightmare proved to be more than even New Yorkers were equipped to handle on such a short timeline. [View news story]
    "Valiant effort" how about we call it an assinine idea to try to allow a bunch of self-centered runners to prance through a city so decimated by this storm. Maybe if this bunch would stick around a lend a hand to some of those in need I would think better of them, but under the circumstances they can just jog their spandex asses somewhere else. I was never a Bloomberg fan (too much nanny, I know what's best for you in him) and this does nothing in the way of changing my mind about him. Three terms as mayor was two too many.
