  • Market Review And Outlook: 2nd Quarter, 2015 [View article]
    Texas racing to the top of the fiscal irresponsibly list.

    Houston's debt now surpasses Detroits. The prior mayor (democrat) negotiated windfall pensions for certain Union based employees. Do you think they are oblivious to the underfunding?

    Chicago and Texas Dems growing money on trees. Just issue more Muni Bonds, right?

  • Reuters: UBS withdraws from Puerto Rico funds [View news story]
    Texas bonds scrutinized by Moody's too.


    Alarming growth and magnitude of Unfunded Pension Liabilities, predominantly Teacher Retirement.

    This issue is a definite concern to Tax Payers due to Texas Public Education rendering lower student outcomes while demanding more and more funding.

    Are Chicago Bonds next?

    Will all the Muni Bond CEFs make abundantly clear which CEFs hold any PR bonds? CEF Connect could readily publish this pertinent information.

  • Chesapeake's Dividend Cut - Food For Thought For Yield Investors [View article]
    The outside SEC Auditors are likely having their initial meetings with numerous publicly traded clients. The topic is likely Impairments from their analyses, which means some very long client faces.

    Shareholders will be the last to know. Indicators can be reduced/eliminated dividends/distributions.

    Write Downs "Basis of Impairement" on reserves, utilizing the last twelve months op expense and actual wellhead prices, may be severe?

  • Energy Transfer Equity Enters The Auction For Williams [View article]
    The approximate $64 per share buyout price for WMB is sweeter every day. WPZ evidently has no value to ETE. WMB share holders may find $64 the FAR better deal with each passing trading day. The price WMB offered to roll up WPZ looks low, too Low!

    $64 per WMB share looks better today than two weeks ago. Accumulating depressed WMB shares today seems to be a No Brainer. Just takes money!

  • Chesapeake's Dividend Cut - Food For Thought For Yield Investors [View article]
    So much pain inflicted by Dividend Cuts, Distribution Cuts, Reserve Write Downs, share price decimation and Market Cap Loss.

    Holders of Domestic Energy Shares have the possibility of increased Cap Gains Tax too.

    Be careful who you vote for folks!!!

    There is nothing but more pain for those brave enough to hold on. Cutting losses to prevent deepening losses is always a option. If you are brave to hang, then you need to look to 2018. Domestic Producers are electing to blow their CapX on feeding the Production Bubble and have paved their way to oblivion and ruin.

    Shutting In, Curtailing Wellhead Production may be welcomed if it drives product prices higher?

    Fair warning on electing to stay the course of stock ownership in the Upstream!
