    Agreed ATrautmann. If the deal does go through, those same shorts will double already large take by riding it right back up.

  • Philip Morris: Explaining The Debt Issue [View article]
    Bill, you show an incredible amount of patience allowing this guy to keep ripping you without retaliating.

    Bravo for taking the high road. Thank you for setting a great example. I don't know how many of the rest of us could have ignored that much repeated hacking and not lit that person up.

  • Philip Morris: Explaining The Debt Issue [View article]
    <<Shareholders should get used to the idea of high debt since PM will have 40b of debt sooner rather than later, and it's the right financial decision.>>

    Not going to argue this point but would be curious to the PM exit plan once (whatever it happens to be) a certain debt level is reached where they have no choice but to turn back.

  • Oppenheimer continues to like top MLPs, noting that the Alerian MLP index (AMJ) outperformed the S&P 500 in three of the past five times interest rates have risen. For the MLPs under its coverage, Oppy's analysts forecast median 2014 distribution growth of 5.6%. The firm's MLPs to buy: EPD, RGP, EEP, PAA, BBEP, LRE, EVEP, MCEP, NSLP[View news story]
    LRE??? Interesting. Most days, the volume is under 100k. They are struggling to survive but have managed to hang on. They still have a lot to prove. I own a small position, but admit is largely a speculative one. I view them as still a floating leaf in the MLP world.

  • Why Linn Energy Is Not A Ponzi-Like Scheme [View article]
    << The SEC stated that the inquiry does not indicate that it has a negative view of the partnership.>>

    Has the SEC ever come out and and said it has a negative view of a co, right from the get-go???

    I mean, c'mon. Them being involved at all is a flat out negative.

  • SEC Inquiries: Opportunities, Wrapped In Hysteria, Inside A Catastrophe - Part I [View article]
    << It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma>>

    I believe Joe Pesci's character said this (about who killed JFK) in the movie 'JFK'.

    I've used it to describe/explain a variety of unknowns, mostly at work. No one ever told me where it originally came from-thanks.

    <<I hope that Mr. Issa, given the actual information that he so painstakingly assembles and presents...>>

    It's 'Eassa'-not Issa. Please pay attention if you're going to complain. Sheesh.

    There is an Issa in the state gov't of CA and if you'd like to complain about him, this is not the place for it.

    <<...also posted on another article that sell-off was overdone and I was averaging in at just over 27 and then again at 23....In addition, this SEC has unfairly hitting others in space and was added to ARP position....>>

    Smart move Bret. Just out of curiosity, are you trading or holding these most recent buys??

  • Here's Why Linn Energy Isn't Done Dropping [View article]
    Great points, Ralph. If I had dry powder, I'd be tempted to buy more LINE...BUT...I currently use the distribution (along with that of several others) to buy and/or initiate positions in stocks that have been on my watch list for a while (LO and T for example).

    So....my concern is whether the distribution gets cut. Thankfully, my position is a small one. Should that get ix-nay'd, then I have to take a hard look at what $ I have left and start thinking about selling out right and simply accepting the loss (and deploying it into one of the watch list stocks and/or a stock that I've been hoping to add to).

  • Linn Energy: How Low Can It Go? [View article]
    Is someone trying to thwart the merger?? Yes, that is what I've been wondering too.

    Maybe it's not really about LINE accounting but rather someone using that for something bigger (killing the merger)???

    Psychology is crucial, esp in a situation like this.

    Disclosure: Still holding all my LINE shares (avg price about $34)
