  • Best Ways To Invest -- What's Your Opinion? A Place To Share Ideas! #43 [View instapost]
    Actually that's not true. If you follow IRS rules, each lot has to be treated individually when calculating basis, taxable income, capital gains on sale. Further, people *should* be filing state taxes in every state with MLP operations (some don't require it but many do).

    Of course, there are tons of people not following the rules, I suspect. A small amount will likely be below the radar unless they pick you out for something else. In that event the added amount owed would pale in comparison to figuring it all out... for me anyway.

    One thing for sure - it creates a nightmarish tax accounting situation in a taxable account.

    Peter, perhaps you can find more credible sources? A brief check reveals some funny background.

    Well S, then it's time to put the cash under your mattress and not waste your time on SA isn't it? I know quite well what the economic situation. Rose colored glasses really applies to any position that may ignore alternative views of reality. Physician, heal thyself. Again, good luck. I don't see much point to arguing a point I don't assert.

    On the other hand, the largest operators are at the greatest risk in a downturn. the hedge is costly on these folks.

    snoopy, you certainly have not had time to research this yet, and it sounds like you haven't read the link I gave you. Why not look and see what percent of GDP the balance sheet was? Why not see what history can tell you? I don't say that our policies are good, and I have no position to "stand by." I'm looking at what investments are likely to do well in this environment. Good luck.

    snoopy, it isn't really true that the current monetary policy manipulation is unprecedented. Actually, we have done this before. See pages like http://bit.ly/1pJUmeG, and further research on the period will show you that from interest rate fixing to bond purchases - the FRB has inflated its balance sheet before.

    The real difference is whether we can achieve a nice result on exit. The growth curve after WWII bailed us out. Is similar productivity growth possible now? That will decide the result.

  • Vantage Drilling Company Is Not As Valuable As It Seems [View article]
    As far as I can see, this is the most leveraged company in the space. 5x debt to equity. If it survives it can be big, but it's very very speculative. In a liquidation the common is wiped out I think.

    Shorter term moves aside, I think that biotech/pharma will outperform because everyone wants to live longer and healthier. An older average age is a secular trend, so I'm overweight the sector(s). Good luck.

    Considering that outperformance can also denote less decline during a market correction, I think Pharma/Biotech and Medical Device sectors are good defensive positions. But they will also correct.
