  • This High-Dividend Stock Yields 7%-Plus, Will Up Its Dividend By 12% To 14% [View article]
    K-1 is not dreaded. If you want to uncover great investments, doing a K-1 is a small price to pay for out performance. I get K-1's all the time from my great hedge funds. I give the whole package to my accountant and let him deal with it. However, I have learned all the different categories that are in a K-1 so that I can be con conversant in this area. One of my hedge funds has made 20% a year for 18 years. It has a K-1- so what??

  • VCLT: A Good ETF To Have In Your Portfolio [View article]
    A recommendation for disaster. These ETF will get blown out when rates rise plain and simple. Look at BDC"S that own floating rate debt like SUNS and go to seeking alpha contributor BDCBuzz.

    Don't bet on it. There is little upside. Invest in rising distribution MLP's.

    For all you BDC's lovers. The reason the BDC's have been dropping in price is because all are being kicked out of the Russell 2000 index. the inDEX holders and anyone else that tried to replicate the index, are sellers. the change is supposed to take place in June. VIEW THIS AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BUY BDC'S ON THE CHEAP.

  • Alliance Resource Partners' Management Presents at 2013 Wells Fargo Securities Research and Economics 12th Annual Pipeline, MLP and Energy Symposium Conference (Transcript) [View article]
    Awesome! One of the best well run companies on the planet. With this kind of compounded growth rate and distribution, just buy it and put it away forever. That's what I have done since 2009 when I bought ARLP for $29.50.

  • Main Street Capital: The Best Dividend Stock In America [View article]
    While you are correct in your analysis of MAIN, it is NOT the best dividend stock in America. Alliance Resource Partners (ARLP) is!! It is one of the best companies on the planet and an MLP to boot owning massive coal mines and increasing their dividend every quarter for many years. I bought at $29.50 in 2009 and now it is around $86 and the payout has doubled. Nothing can beat this stock for total return and deferred tax treatment on dividends. All of MAIN's dividends if not held in a pension plan are taxed as ordinary income, which is a disadvantage to ARLP. Load up on ARLP and don't look back, which is what I have done.

    Valuation for ARLP (Speaks for itself)

    Price/Earnings - 10.90
    Price/Book - 3.80
    Price/Sales - 1.40

    Five-Year Average Revenue Growth Rate: 16.50%
    Five-Year Average EPS Growth Rate: 25.20%
    Five-Year Average Dividend Growth Rate: 12.80%
    Consecutive Annual Dividend Increases: 11
    Current Dividend Yield: 5.77%
    Dividend Payout Ratio: 43%
    Balance Sheet Strength: Strong

  • Third Point Lockup And Market Downturn Provides Shorting Opportunity [View article]
    Your comments are not the friendliest and are bordering on the nasty. Of course I know about the expansion and contraction of the premium and that you can play it. What you are doing is fine, just wanted to warn you that Loeb, mostly has a greater percentage of up months and if a month is let's say is up 5% which has happened a number of times, you may not know this until the end of the month and if you are holding the stock when the results come out, the stock will certainly readjust to the new BV. There are databases like Tickerspy to track Loeb's 13F filings, but you do not see the shorts so you cannot know how good the month is until after the end of month.

    Please keep in mind that we are at the two ends of the spectrum. I bought in at the original private offering BV and am already enjoying a good premium and plan to hold the stock long term as a tax deferred compounding vehicle. Maybe, when and if I ever sell, I wait for a window to sell when the premium is at the historical high. Meanwhile, I expect if Loeb continues to do what he has done, I will look forward to compound at near 20% a year over the long term. Even at 15% a year it is nice. You did not go this route so there is no discussion.

    That is fine. However, the danger in what you are doing you may get caught if during the month Loeb makes good money and the BV goes up and you do not know that. If you hold the shares when results are reported at the end of the month, then a BV rise and may go against you and then the stock goes up. You are somewhat shooting in the dark.
