  • What Happens When You Sell An MLP? [View article]
    As Rlp2451 stated below, if you own one during the year, you'll receive a K-1.

    I've traded quite a few without collecting any distributions. The end result is a simple short-term gain, but you'll still get a K-1.

    Even if you just trade it without collecting distributions, you'll still receive a K-1.

    The same here, I don't use either. And I won't sign up to access someone's website. Use those things at your own risk. Too much risk imo.

    The K-1 deals with any units you sold during the year and reports the cost basis of those units sold.

  • Is Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR -4.4%) gaining enough market share to compensate for lower K-cup prices? That's the question that could be answered when the company reports earning on May 8 and also has importance in evaluating the next couple of quarters. Sector watch: The company -  along with peers (KRFT, SJM, PEET, DNKN) - received a bit of a jolt when Starbucks dropped the pricing on its 12-ounce bagged coffee by a dollar to $8.99. [View news story]
    Starbucks lowering the price might be a good start for the other resellers to follow. We can always hope anyway.

    I'm just hoping Juan Valdez Cafe follows that price drop.

  • Seadrill Continues To Deliver On Growth Promise [View article]
    Yes, you are correct. They paid the 2013 Q1 dividend before December 31, 2012 along with the 2012 Q4 dividend.

    Most sites, including brokerages, show the dividend at 1.70/quarter when it is really only half that. But they do reserve the right to raise or lower the dividend every quarter.

  • While Jill Priluck decries "the dark side of shareholder activism" on Reuters, the NYT's James Stewart highlights the "sham" shareholder democracy that has seen directors at dozens of publicly traded companies retaining their positions despite losing elections. The firms include Cablevision Systems (CVC), Vornado Realty Trust (VNO) and medical diagnostics Iris International, where shareholders rejected all nine directors in May 2011. They resigned but then voted to reject their own resignations. [View news story]
    How could they vote as a BOD member if they resigned? This is crazy.

    No civil action being taken against these BODs?

  • Apple's Story: Only The Beginning? [View article]
    Really, then maybe the people you know have already brought in phones for all their friends. How about people who are new to the privileged classes? Maybe they are now bringing in Apple phones.

    From the last item: "Problems abound, though, including a lack of filling stations and fears of the cars blowing up."

    Lima, Peru has had both lpg and cng at fueling stations for years now. The cars, many of which were not properly converted, don't blow up. There have been some taxis that have burned up after "shade tree" type modifications, but no explosions.

    If it can be done in Lima, it can be done elsewhere. Lima is at best "organizational challenged."

  • After an unprecedent halt, shares of Herbalife (HLF -0.9%) resume trading, currently at $38.11. [View news story]
    Not much of a drop in the end. Problem with KPMG appears to have been with their own people providing information on HLF to third parties.
