  • Yorkville ETF Expense Ratios At 6.34% And 6.86% [View article]
    ALL of our investments would be more rewarding if they were not taxed. 14.28% would be lovely but in today's environment 8.76% is lovely. The fact that the government extracts taxes is not something novel and shocking; it i is established fact, not some error on the part of management.

  • Yorkville ETF Expense Ratios At 6.34% And 6.86% [View article]
    Can anyone explain why the dividend is shown as $1.64 and the return as 8.76? Is this true? If so, why do we care about the tax?

  • Should I Convert My Dividend Growth IRA To A Roth IRA? [View article]
    I think that Roths are a foolish gamble that future Congresses,desperate for revenue, will refrain from taxing Roth distributions, at least for those above a certain income level.
    You do NOT have a contract that guarantees the future tax-free status of Roth distributions. Any future Congress is free to change the rules, just as Congress changed the rules on taxing social security payments.
    Stick with traditional 401 and IRA and take the tax deduction NOW.

  • MLPs have suffered during the past week on worries their tax treatment could be changed in any fiscal cliff deal, but WSJ's Liam Denning thinks their weakness also speaks to broader valuation concerns. High-yield securities have been in demand amid ultra-low interest rates, and the Alerian MLP (AMJ) hit an all-time high last month. But after the recent correction, MLPs may be looking more attractive. [View news story]
    YMLP has fallen fast, but it invests in smaller MLPs that may not be as financially formidable as the large ones. Anything yielding over 8% has to be considered speculative in today's markets.
    AMJ is less speculative, and lower-yielding, but when the entire market falls it's going to fall too.

  • Are MLPs Too Good To Be True? Analyst Darren Schuringa Crunches The Numbers [View article]
    Well, it seems he is the portfolio manager of YMLP, unless I'm mistaken, and it is misleading to call him an analyst.

    I wish you would clarify the role of Schuringa. Does he work for Yorkville? Is he the manager of YMLP? If so, why do you refer to him as an "analyst"?
