  • Vanguard Natural Resources: A Major Bet On Natural Gas [View article]
    I own VNR for the income and not as trading vehicle, therefore the day to day price affects me little. I thus far believe the management that the DCF shortfall is transient - but will stay tuned...
    MEMP appears solid with a pantry full of possible drop downs from its GP.

  • Retirement Strategy: How Will Rising Interest Rates Affect Dividend Growth Investors? [View article]
    I thought most Dividend Growth Investors focused primarily on the soundness of the underlying business model of their holdings and thus the security of their dividends and their growth - not macroeconomic issues and guesses as to timing of interest rate fluctuations. The mantra for many has been to find and hold good businesses with safe and growing dividends and hold them unless the business model falters.

  • Equity CEFs: Buy JLA Over QQQX [View instapost]
    The arbitrage works for JLA holders as long as the market price of QQQX is relatively at more of a premium to NAV than JLA's market price to NAV.

  • Equity CEFs: Don't Judge A CEF By Its Yield [View article]
    How is an investor to correctly interpret the current YTD total NAV performance of a CEF in the context of a longer time frame performance when contemplating a purchase of that CEF? For instance, while GRX has an outstanding total return history, the current calendar year total return is listed by CEFConnect as only 4.47% which is significantly below category 15.62% and leaves a lot of catching up in the last third of 2014 to come close to its 2013 total return of 28.7%. Should a decelerating total NAV performance as seemingly manifest by GRX dissuade a CEF investor?

  • Weekly Intelligence For MLP Investors [View article]
    You would simply avoid the additional tax on the November distribution if sold before receiving the distribution - no change on tax obligation from previous distributions.

  • Vanguard Natural Resources: The Lackluster Coverage Ratio Remains A Concern [View article]
    I have held VNR for quite some time for it's monthly dividend which I believe is safe. I will continue to hold it for the same reason. Most companies have rough patches and this management is taking steps to shore things up in the face of an adverse NGL market. I would say "Market Perform" is about right and OK with me.

  • Equity CEFs: New Kids On The Block [View article]
    I don't believe Mr. Albo meant to suggest that the new CEF is bought with an intent to lose investment value but rather that when investment value is diminished, as is often the case with new issue CEFs, then the sale of the purchase which has lost value can and often is used as a tax abatement. The sale then for tax abatement further contributes to a fall in CEF price.
    the unvirtuous circle...
