    Why wouldn't I buy LNCO, with the same div, and growth, and skip the complicated accounting REQUIRED BY K-1'S, ETC. Also, pay 15% on divs, vs ordinary income tax on recapture on LINE?
    Have you read " Reel Ken: Hello Taxes... Goodbye MLPs " on SA

    VPDFX pays aprox 6.6%/yr[maybe]! Something like .08 $/month!
    Each div includes aprox .05 $/month of ROC, and a fee of .4 $.
    Thus, you are getting paid 60+% with your input capital. How do you like that---big reduction in capital over time--like a bad [dream]annuity.

  • Can You Retire With A $1,000,000 Portfolio? An Urgent Follow Up [View article]
    My solution is , I have hired an Investment Advisor 10 yrs aag, on a fee basis. I have prepared a letter[and update] with objectives for going forward.
    My wife will never get to intelligent investing.
    I have also prepared a disk w/ all my papers, and personal requests to my
    wife, and Son[administrator].
    To expect your wife, or anyone, to pick up on safe investing in less that 20 yrs experience is foolish.
    I sleep nights!

    RK,
    I continue reading all your articles and associated comments, and have gained a useful understanding. Thanks for your candid efforts.
    QUESTION: What is the relevant IRS information regarding securities re-setting to market prices, on death of the holder? Thanks.

  • Retirement Investing For Patient Investors In Search Of High Returns [View article]
    You know that cost basis /share reduces as more divs are paid!
    You already told me that! The original cost never changes.

    Give us your idea, on how the cost basis can go to zero?

    The original cost will always be the basis--not changing, unless you sell all, or part of the shs.

    ETP has a 8+ % div, not changed in a few years, Revs, and profits have increased. Is the GP inhibiting Div growth?
