    Thanks for your timely and informative reply. Would you then sell shares of KMR to buy KMI for your IRA?

  • 4-Must Own Dividend Stocks And 3 To Avoid For 2012 [View article]
    Thank you for your research and suggestions; I enjoy your articles very much and have learned from many of them. My question to you concerns KMR vs KMI in a tax-deferred account. I hold KMR in a traditional IRA (not Roth because of the income constraints) which is better from a tax perspective, as I understand it. Is there any advantage to owning KMI over KMR in a traditional IRA? Performance-wise, is KMI superior to KMR long-term?? Thank you in advance.

  • The Truth About Warren Buffett And 'Forever Investing' [View article]
    Good article on investing strategy and perspective. One question regarding your Graham comment: can you define what you mean when you say "one-third cheaper"? Is that the absolute value of the stock or is it an analysis of earnings/income etc...??

    Thank you and Merry Xmas.

    I appreciate very much your thoughtful and timely response to my questions. I think you should consider writing more articles such as this because you clearly help those of us with only basic skill at investing in this area achieve an improved understanding. I have learned much from your article and a majority of the comments/responses poseted thereafter. Keep up this good work!

    I enjoyed your article very much. I am 46 and an MLP novice but, I have owned KMR and EEQ in an IRA for several years and am happy with the results so far. Considering I have young children and that MLPs are the "perfect buy and hold investments", what is your opinion about opening up non-IRA DRIP accounts for each of them to be used much later for college, weddings, etc.?

    Don't be fooled by fancy graphs and piss poor "analysis." Wilmington Trust (WL) lost an additional 44% after being acquired by M&T Bank. Dont waste your time reading posts from this contributor.

  • BP's Gift to Investors: Cheap Energy Stocks [View article]
    I enjoy reading your articles and your comments; I learn quite alot from both. To refresh my memory, I went back to your May article "Seeking Alpha, Finding Zen". As you wrote then, one of your keys lessons is that "Secular bull markets are profitable periods to buy and hold...secular bear markets are only profitable if you are willing to reallocate your assets from fully invested to less invested and back again...that’s why, in so many previous articles, I have recommended re-allocating assets to protect your portfolio...And I'll continue to do so."

    So, I carefully created a portfolio that only included the socks you mentioned in the article as long picks ( NRP, PVR, ATLIF.PK, NZT, TBT, TIP, NSL, PFL, VXX, VXZ, GG, KGC, FNNVF.PK, RGLD and SLW) based on the closing prices of each stock that day (May 10). Equal $$$ of each were allotted and a trading commision of $7.95 (which is what I pay) was incurred. No attempt to include dividends was made in the final calculation.

    The result: -0.81% return. A money market could perform better during that period. If secular bear markets "amble" and forces the investor to be "nimble" with re-allocation, the end result here at least is losing a little money and making one's broker richer. I for one would rather be happy at slow and steady gains and minimal losses/fees. I'll wait for the secular bear market to end and be happy with bonds and large dividend paying aristocrats.
