  • Enterprise Products Partners LP: Great Company, Not A Great Stock [View article]
    Nice shock value on the headline. Mission accomplished since I read the article. This is a terrific company that has a lot going on into the future. Yes, I was one of those who got in 4 years ago and caught a double. It's tough to even think about selling.

  • Continue To Avoid Linn Energy [View article]
    Just an observation: Have you ever noticed that the perma-bears always seem to come out with a negative article just after the ex-dividend (distribution) date? Now that there is a monthly distribution, they only have about 3 weeks to trash the company before the next distribution announcement. I still believe that this management team knows what they are doing. I'm in this for the long haul. Good luck everybody.

  • Linn Energy: Where Are The Naysayers Now? [View article]

    Thanks for the snide and condescending remarks. I think we all know you now. I do profit from the dips and don't run out the door with every negative article. Good luck and keep on looking down your nose at all of us. We bow to your intellectual superiority.

    The short sellers do not have time to opine on LINE, they are too busy covering and paying that monthly distribution. Barron's should not throw rocks until the facts are in "line", but journalist are not held accountable for their opinions. I would not buy that rag to train a dog. Good luck everybody and get ready for a little dip in the not too distant future.

  • Linn Energy Is Set To Grow [View article]
    I'll give it another 15.2 nano seconds for a negative article to come out against this management team. I think they have navigated the storm well and look forward to increased distributions sometime in the future. It may not be this year, but I think they are on track. Their coverage ratio is finally above 1, which makes me feel a lot better about the future. Good luck to all of the negative Nancy's - and cover those short positions. :)

  • Altria: A Pullback Would Be Nice [View article]
    I have been waiting for months to add to my current position, but it just keeps going higher. I guess that is a good problem. Last year, just before the dividend increase, the stock fell pretty significantly. I will wait for that opportunity in the next few months. My current cost basis is $33. I'm hoping for a drop to $38 or so to add. Good Luck everybody.

  • Enterprise Products Partners: A Valid Alternative To Kinder Morgan [View article]
    This is, by far, the best performing investment that I have ever had. I started a position in January of 2010 and managed to accumulate 1050 shares. This is simply a cash machine and very well run. As long as the government does not start playing around with MLP's, I would recommend this investment to anyone. A slight pull-back or a secondary offering should be pounced on. With the quarterly distribution increase of 1 cent per quarter, you will find yourself in a nice yielding asset in no time at all. Good luck and happy hunting.

  • CenturyLink: Future Looks Bright [View article]
    It looks like CTL is finally out of the penalty box after their dividend cut in 2013. It was painful at the time, but it was the right thing to do. It appears that they have found a niche for growth in this extremely competitive business.

  • Linn Energy: Permian Trade Heightens Likelihood Of 2015 Distribution Cut [View article]
    I guess LINE will never do another deal. I hope they do more deals that will be increase DCF and cut the distribution?????????? Wait....let's review their acquisitions over the last few years. I don't have time to list all of them. Good luck

  • Linn Energy: The Permian Trade With Exxon Is A Smart Move [View article]
    It should take about 2 nano seconds for the perma-bears to come out of the woodwork and trash this deal. Let's see.....accretive to distributable cash flow means distribution cut in bear eyes. Oops, too late. I already see an article about a distribution cut...missed it by 1 nano second. Good luck covering your short positions perma-bears. By the way, this management team knows what it is doing.

  • Altria Group: Is It Time To Sell? [View article]
    When they announce their dividend increase later this year, there will probably be a pull back. I'm not sure what that is all about, but it seems to happen. I've been trying to add to my current position for about the last 3 months, but I am waiting for a better price. My current cost basis is exactly $33. Being patient is hard sometimes, but usually profitable. When the Wall Street pinheads decide to pile back into Tesla, Twitter, etc. we will get a better price. Good luck everybody.

  • Is Transocean A Better Buy Than Ensco And Noble? [View article]
    RIG's investor day is scheduled for 5-16-14. I believe that the vote to raise the dividend is scheduled to be released. I know that Icon is involved with this company and the proposed $3.00 annual dividend will be passed. I only hope that it is sustainable into the future. Hope is not a strategy, but I feel comfortable at these price levels. Good luck.

  • 10% Dividend Payer Linn Energy's Plan For A Big 1031 Exchange Could Lift The Stock Considerably [View article]
    Ok campers, I'll give it 48 hours for a perma-bear to come out with a negative article that slams this company. The ex-dividend date is tomorrow and that should do it. I'm sticking with this company. I think that the management team knows what it is doing. Good luck.

  • General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt Is Doing 3 Excellent Things For Shareholders [View article]
    This is not a bet, it's an investment devout. And I seriously doubt that you have lost more than I will ever make. If you have lost that much, maybe you should try treasuries. Everybody stand on their head if they think GE will be out of business in 40 years.....No takers....I didn't think so. What are the possibilities that Alan Mulally could take over the reins?

  • Linn Energy: Is This The Bottom? [View article]
    Long here as well with $21.40 cost basis. 6 months seems to be long-term these days. Everybody wants a parabolic move on every holding. Sometimes the turtle wins the race.
