  • Closing Out My Long Volatility Position And What's Next [View article]
    All you guys are doing is nothing more than going to a casino. You have no control over geo political events and really don't know more than anyone else. Any one who has made money in volatility is very lucky rolling the dice, because it can turnagianst you VERy quickly and VERy ugly.

  • Why I'm Considering Adding To My Position In This High-Yield MLP [View article]
    I agree with you all counts as ARLP is a great company which I own. However, coal is energy measured in BTU's. So is oil. If oil becomes so cheap how will that affect the price of coal sold?? If ARLP cannot get the same price for coal for the same amount of tons sold, won't that affect earnings and thus distributions?? Am I missing somethiing here?

  • 5 Stocks With Yields Over 10% Go Ex-Dividend Next Week [View article]
    Whoa this makes no sense! Typically, the stock will DROP more than the value of the dividend after the ex dividend date. If you sell right away, you WILL lose money, unless you are committed to hold just prior to the next ex dividend date and then sell before that date and MAYBE you will make some money since the stock MAY rise close to the impending dividend.

  • Third Point Lockup And Market Downturn Provides Shorting Opportunity [View article]
    Ha Ha! Like laughing to the bank. We will see what the price is a a year from now. I'm the only one on this list to have bought in at $10 in the private offering, so I can't be too stupid. If Third Point can make 15-20% over the next rolling year like they have on average managing their capital base, the stock should sell close to $20 (including some premium), the stock at 50,000 shares a year from now should be worth around $1,000,000.

    I've also bought into two pre-IPO's of a REIT and very good insurance company earlier this year at least at a 25% discount to intrinsic value to the eventual IPO's later this month. I don't mind waiting a little bit for the larger pop in price. By controlling my entry points on these deals, my downside is VERY limited when the stock goes public since I am buying in at a very favorable valuation.

    Awesome analysis, Bought in at after split price of $15 in 2009. Soon my return will be infinity after receiving all the payouts. Yum yum! For all of you who have not recognized that ARLP is one of the best well run companies on the planet, now is the time to buy.

  • Financial Planning Moves To Make After The Correction [View article]
    You tell people to maximize their IRA, etc. Fortunately my 401(K) and IRA's have been long invested and have built up well with good investing. However, there is a major flaw. When the money comes out at 70-1/2 it is taxed at ordinary income AND will be subject to estate tax and thus upward of 60-70% of the money will be gone to taxes.
    I have quit putting money into pensions and try to invest for long term capital gains. What is the use of the money going into a pension that will be blown away by taxes???
    If any one out there has a plan to mitigate the destruction of pensions please let me know. Furthermore, if I close down my pensions and try to convert to Roth I will be blasted with more ordinary taxes and 40% of my regular pension money wil be gone once I make the conversion. If anyone has insurance strategies, economic loss strategies to offset the Roth conversions on the 1040 return, please let me know as this should be the mandate for further discussions.

  • Like Coal? Buy Alliance Resource Partners [View article]
    Great move In Indiana. However, coal does not clog up your computer. ARLP is a "CASH" cow not a "cache" cow.

    Seriously though, buy every dip you can of this great company. Let the nervous nellies sell to you at every dip.

  • Third Point Lockup And Market Downturn Provides Shorting Opportunity [View article]
    This a wonderful time to catch Dan Loeb's expertise when the stock dropped from the recent stock market swoon. It gives investors a rare chance to grab the stock near book value and be on equal footing with private LP investors which I am. When TPRE reports over the next 3-6 months hopefully the book value will increase and drive the stock upwards again assuming the overall market improves hopefully during the upcoming hjoldiay season. I have acoe holding in this account, however, I would like to see the results of someone who religiously trades the stock using strict rules based upon expansion and contraction of the premium along with other parameters and how they fared.
