  • Vanguard Natural Resources: Dividend Hikes Are Always Welcomed [View article]
    Payout ratio is not used to measure dist health for these types of entities- distributable cash flow is. VNR has been around 1x of late.

  • Things Look A Little Shaky For Philip Morris [View article]
    If PM had all it's $*!t together right now, tailwinds and all, it would be trading in the $100-105 range and none of us would be able to reinvest/add at the $80 level.

    It all depends on you look at it.

    We're all guessing here at this point. Posting with conviction doesn't change that.

  • Shell investors waiting for signs the company is living within its means [View news story]
    I sold a clients large position (he has a small one in RDS.B in a taxable account) last week at $78.18. I don't see the dividend being in danger, but this co needs to find direction and an identity. Perhaps selling assets and building a bigger cash position will help them find it. For the moment, I'm looking to deploy that cash elsewhere.

  • My Transition To Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) [View article]
    Agree with giving back, Norman. I definitely make a point of making sure my wife gets 'her time in the sun' too. She goes through a lot of cloudy weather though : D

    CLMT is not better than EPD. It may currently have a higher yield, but I'd hardly call it 'better'.

  • My Transition To Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) [View article]
    I don't understand those that kowtow to the wife (the 'Yes, Dear' approach) like that. I guess you get worn down and don't want to argue anymore. I get that, but I make all the $, do all the laundry, pay all the bills, do all the investing, supervise most of the kids' homework getting done, and arrange (or do) most of the regular yard work.

    I've earned the right to be the boss and expect my wife to think the same. No, we don't have the easiest relationship, but there's no way I would trade my wife being my/the boss for having it easier at home. For me, there's no other way.
