  • An Income Portfolio: High Income And Capital Preservation [View article]
    Thanks. I'm also considering MIE and KYE as MLP CEF alternatives to DSE. All have better track records.

  • An Income Portfolio: High Income And Capital Preservation [View article]
    Two questions about the portfolio:
    DSE is a CEF for MLP's. Does it require the dreaded K-1 at tax time?
    DSF, a utility CEF, sell at almost a 6% premium. Would UTG or another utility CEF selling at a discount be preferable?

  • GasLog Partners Quiet Period Expiration Could Be A Buying Opportunity For This Growing Company [View article]
    GLOP was projected to pay 7.5% in distributions. I just received my first one and it's looking more like 2.5%. What's going on?

  • Preferred Stocks Are Not For Everyone [View article]
    Good article and good comments. Preferreds have a place in an income generating portfolio. I have had good luck with those selling under par, buying only cumulative, and with diversifying between REIT, Energy, etc.. I also prefer (no pun intended) monthly paying ones. Both Quantum Online and Yield Hunter are awesome websites for further research.

  • Kinder Morgan In $44B Mega Deal To Combine [View article]
    With other companies headed the other direction (spinning off MLP's), why does this consolidation make sense? I read about the advantages of forming an MLP and then read the advantages of Kinder Morgan consolidating and there seems to be a conflict.

  • Linn Energy And LinnCo Are Buys Now More Than Ever Before [View article]
    Have owned both LINE and LNCO in the past, but sold LINE to get more LNCO.
    Both pay high yields and monthly at a price below 52 week high.

  • MLPs - Yes, They're Okay In Your IRA And Other Tax Questions Answered [View article]
    Good article. Have held multiple MLP's in traditional IRA with no UBTI problems.
    Great gains, great distributions. I also switched from LINE to LNCO. If all MLP's had such an option, would consider the switch. Until then no problems for now and beat most other alternatives proposed by "experts".

    Who else in the MLP world would be ripe as a takeover target? LRE?

  • BreitBurn Energy Partners: QR Energy Is A Good Fit [View article]
    Good article. Any thoughts on other potential takeover targets in the MLP world?
    I think one to consider would be LRE.

  • An 8.6% Yielding REIT Preferred With Upside From Pareto Superior Pricing [View article]
    LGCYO pays monthly, which is a plus. VNRAP is over $25 and VNRBP is right at it. Of those 3, I would do LGCYO. As with MLP's, their preferreds require K-1's.

  • Breitburn Energy to acquire QR Energy in $3B deal [View news story]
    QRE is up only 8.8% in premarket. Will be interesting to see if 19% premium is reflected in the price after open.

  • Breitburn Energy to acquire QR Energy in $3B deal [View news story]
    Are there any other MLP's that are ripe for buyouts like QRE?
    BBEP missed on earnings and revenue. How will buying QRE help?
