  • EXG: The Distribution Is Your Return [View article]
    I have ETV which has maintained its NAV while paying near 9%.
    Buying a CEF that is losing NAV is anathema.

    ETN sounded good until I took a look at its one year chart compared to MO and KO.

  • Take When The Market Gives - Income Opportunities, Part 4: Midstream MLPs [View article]
    One of the things I like with MLPs is the deferral of taxes. You need to give this up with ETFs. Of course you need to deal with K-i s.

  • Closed-End Funds: Discounts Widen, Yields Increase Pending Rate Rise [View article]
    My Muni CEFs have dropped in market value BUT NAV has held.
    My taxable bond CEFs have dropped even more AND so has NAV.
    Thinking of early tax loss selling of those taxables and reinvesting into the munis, still selling at interesting discounts.
    But MATTGRU makes some important points vis-a-vis how NAV is actually accounted for.
    Anybody else?

  • Choosing The 'Best' REIT CEF [View article]
    so when you say X Reit price in 08 was down 30% have you adjusted for dividends received during that period? Don't divs received mitigate the paper loss?

  • Monday Market Manipulation: Everything Is Awesome! [View article]
    I love to read these sky is falling articles. In 08 & 09 they reigned supreme. Even I thought so. Big mistake staying in cash.

  • Healthcare REITs: Still Looking For A Bottom [View article]
    Qniform,
    Thanks for the correction. My bad BUT that's why I prefer CEFs; don't worry about possible tax politics with congress always on the warpath.
    I'm happy with HQH and its distribution. Income is my interest. Performance is good too, isn't it? I will probably fish for THQ >6% distribution and selling at a discount. Scooter Pop recently bought in and I value his opinion.

    In addition to clean up costs do the pipeline companies have to re-imburse for the lost product?

  • Annaly Capital: Is The Wells Fargo Upgrade Leading The Way? [View article]
    I remember back when NLY and AGNC yielded more and were priced much higher.
    Now they yield less and are priced much lower than then. Can this trend continue? Why should it change?

    As to relative strength- I value it less and less. Seems like a falling price always has a low RSI. Doesn't technical analysis show rising RSI when buyers are coming in?

  • 8% Raise For The Dividend Growth 50 [View article]
    Re" WEC
    If a utility shows increasing returns to share holders might it come under scrutiny with regulators as to rates?

    As to others on this list many fail the "Chowder Rule", a well followed SA criterion.

    Interesting work, Mike.

  • The REIT Bloodbath: Game Plan For 2nd Half [View article]
    Many thanks to Dane and Steve Rasher for coming back with answers to my questions. This is the kind of responses that makes SA worth reading and navigating through some nonsense. Much appreciated.

    I can't find current price of KMI+ (warrants) due 5/17 but if I was inclined such I'd rather go for Jan 17 $40 leaps @ ~2.20.
