  • Dividends Don't Matter In Retirement Either [View article]
    The Author offers HARSH GENERALITYS on this matter not considering a range of retired people. IE, at 81, I've lived through many years of volatility, and survived to date. Dividends in well managed companies are my safety net, and by experience, with such company's, in down turns, the div's are there!

  • Is It A Healthy Move To Hold On To UnitedHealth Group? [View article]
    "Reality" In 2014 UNH has eliminated twice a year dental cleaning--making me pay $800++/year for y family.
    They also eliminated many specialists from their net work, raising prices for visits 40%, along w/ associated proceedures, MRI, surgery etc.
    That's how they pay their DIVS!
    They are eliminating PRODUCTS, and raising prices drastically.

    UNH may have problems with membership, as they are raising prices, and eliminating benefits, a lot, each year to hold profitability.
    An enterprise that has no new products, and depends of the Government for revenues---not a great plan! I have UNH, and think it could make sense to go back to Medicare soon.

    The only thing about holding in an IRA is UBTI, and there are a lot of MLPS don't have any. ie like OKS!

    My basis is also close to 0! I'm interested in some ideas, as to why I should, or not buy more to stay above 0 basis?
    Thanks

    Your comments on MLPS continue to be mis-leading, 1/2 truths, and not qualified.
    Let's just stick BPT, where you exhibit "some" knowledge!
    Thanks

    EEQ, and KMR don't issue yearly 1099s! Divs are paid in shares quarterly.
    Taxed only when sold, at LTCG rates. Try it, you'll like it!
    Generally, the GP's are performing well, w/o tax issues you mention, IE KMI, etc
    Your broad comment on MLPS is mis-leading!
    I plan on leaving some MLPS to my kids, at which time they will step up
    to market price, avoiding any taxes, after my distributions were all tax free--What a country?

    "Everyone has their own views. That's what makes a market. I avoid MLP's because the general partner usually takes all of the money from the LP's. "

    My MLP "VIEW": examples, over 4-5 yrs: EPD[no GP] +230%, div on cost 8.9%. OKS + 92%, EEQ +61%, KMR +52%--both divs of aprox 10.8% on cost, and no 1099s!
    All better total returns vs my BPT holding.
    All have their tax issues.
    Still long BPT, and will add some this week.
