    Hi Christine. Have been quietly counting, just how many exes have you gone through? :)

    Yes, it had to do with becoming more competitive with the cost of capital and putting it where it does the most good the way several others had done. The time for the MLP having both general and limited partnerships has come and gone. It should be expected as a risk now everywhere the old complex structures remain.

  • Biggest Inflection Point For 2015 Happening Right Now (Update)  [View article]
    Chris: There is one point worth making: something a market letter writer from the 1970s through 2010 or so used to make.

    "The function of a bear market is to take the most investors down with it, the function of a bull market is to take the fewest along up with it."

    Seems to make sense if you think about it a while, or use the term "function" like it is in math. What would you say to that re today?

    I would think that someone who can get $200,000 for an hour's work is making more than 99% of us do in a year is pretty successful, to whom money is nothing and will never have a worry, having reached the promised land, and that's in a different class, like the class of those on the Titanic; the class that knows all is noise for the peasants and nothing else. What happens in the real world means nothing to them, so why not crash it, and the difference is they know it and we don't. The author is the one singing for his supper.

    Ditto the K1s, though some say they don't mind them, I do and never liked them.

    True enough, but gawilley: You spend more time complaining about Uncle Pie and other complainants then they do complaining; plus you are basically telling them they can't talk, while you can. Do you own this venue? Why have the owners not shut him off? Could it be his warnings have something to offer, even if you don't hink so? Why can't you just not read them or move on yourself? Is that what you are attempting, getting as tiresome as they are? And if you think we should have to read your reply to this comment, you are doing the same as Uncle, and now I am doing to you what you do to them. Do you like having some of your own medicine?

  • Bond Rout: Time To Run Or Time To Buy?  [View article]
    jweissman, Sorry, a little confused by your omission. Which trend do you refer to? The trend of what? Rising interest rates or rising bond prices?

    "But amid this recently sharp rise in interest rates, high yield bond investors appear to have hardly noticed. This marks a sharp contrast to two years ago in the spring of 2013, when high yield was getting ripped along with the Treasury market,"

    Could this suggest that business conditions are better than they had been and now the high yield market suggests that it can sustain a bump in interest rates because it means "aggregate demand" (proxy for global, or at least in the US, domestic growth, GDP growth or whatever term you might suggest), is gradually moving up? So we might be in, or at, the Goldilocks zone for GDP growth, with rates gradually rising? Otherwise, why would "junk" yields not take a dive in the way that they did in 2013? Is this time maybe "a little" different? So maybe the overall range of interest rate swings is moving up?

    Steve, I am indeed agreeing with you.

    I just sure hope the Fed does too. The crowd sure doesn't seem to. One of these days the crowd is going to be right. I don't have the first clue really how to time THAT. If anybody knows, don't hold back, it would be a welcome comment!

    In the meantime, the best idea I come up with is to just reinvest, but that seems a small gain against a larger loss. But if anyone has ideas such as dividend rates to use as a buy-target or something like that, I'd be all ears.

  • MannKind's (MNKD) CEO Hakan Edstrom on Q1 2015 Results - Earnings Call Transcript  [View article]
    Nonsense. First, if it were a conspiracy, there would be no counterproductive obvious statement announcing and pointing to its own smoking gun. Second, users are religious zealots when it comes to protecting themselves and their peers from all forms of exploitation, and are the first to be highly critical when something does not work to their liking, and especially don't like financial conflicts polluting the welfare of their peers on their own sites. So your suggestion through a different lens does not make sense at all; but that's the fun of making up new conspiracy ideas, they don't need to be true to be fun and the lack of evidence or detail to be tested is enjoyably pernicious. I know the flighty one and he is a little weird, also given to premature judgements and incomplete reasoning, and he is so unusually impaired and heavily insulin resistant in his diabetes that he is skittish and dismissive about everything; not at all the rule and his web-mates, longterm diabetes members pre-dating most of this MNKD business, contradict him about it in their conversations with him. One guy, wow, a landslide. And maybe for this guy, it is not for him, but even he is praising it now. But if you actually want a real answer, maybe you could post details that can actually be checked up on.
