  • The 8% Income Portfolio: Review And Update  [View article]
    Nothing discussed here about "net post tax" income from divs, and sales!
    Having looked at many like those presented, I find discouraging High Mgt Fees, ordinary income, ROC, re-capture, causing the proposed 8% to be illusory, when evaluating post tax results.

  • Trinity Industries - A Cyclical Stock With 30% Upside Potential  [View article]
    Shame on the Author who is negligent to this board, in not disclosing the risk of suits that can plague this stock's value for many years.
    I held for some years, and fortunately sold before it tanked at a great profit.
    I went to GBX, and RAIL, who are not encumbered with such risks.
    I envision a super opportunity in the rehab of existing Oil Cars, driven by the Fed!
    I would like to come back when the dust settles

    Even if Keystone is ok'd, It will be delayed indefinitely by the GREENS.
    Scary, if the Republicans get the Senate--then they will be forced to govern, vs being the Party of NO!

  • Inflation Is Killing My Retirement: How I'm Dealing With It, Part 2  [View article]
    Your Idealistic Optimism becomes you, on buying MLP'S. You disclose nothing about the tax accounting on sales, recapture, holding in an IRA, etc.
    New purchasers should educate themselves about short and long term holding risks.
    It's just not as rosy as you suggest.
    There are numerous good paying equity opportunities compared to MLPS--EEQ,KMR,KMI,LNCO, etc and numerous Preferreds, all paying div 6-10%, without the complication of MLPS
    Buyer beware!

  • MLPs - Yes, They're Okay In Your IRA And Other Tax Questions Answered  [View article]
    So PHIL,
    Did you ever hear of the tax treatment/effects of one transferring a MLP from an IRA to a taxable acct, and then paying ordinary tax? Would seem that, that tax would cover all requirements, just as transferring stocks!

    I have, and pay a CPA, and a Broker that serve me well. My point is that, so many on SA offer one line, misleading jabs at interpretations, that I urge them to back up what they say! You have avoided! OK!

  • MLPs - Yes, They're Okay In Your IRA And Other Tax Questions Answered  [View article]
    When I transfer funds for my RMD, I use both div paying stocks, and sometimes MLPS. The cost resets to the price at time of transfer. I pay Ord Income tax on all. Divs remaining in IRA will ultimately be taxed as Ord income Some say transfer = Sale! OK, do you pay tax for the RMD securities, or in the IRA---surely not twice!
    Been posting for some years, and never had anyone state specific chapter and verse. Even RK was not firm on the matter!
    Could be if you sold a MLP right after transfer, the tax would be minimum, as would be a Stock.
    Any comments should have good documentation?

    What I "read" yesterday, was not specific, or convincing about the sale of MLPS in an IRA. It was about Partnerships in general. Read that years ago from RK, and he labored to interpret.
    My Broker, and CPA agree w/ me!
    My motives are to discover accurate information. Report that!

    Can recall any detailed citation of the "answer" from you, or any one, ever!
    I guess you just don't know!
