    Nice to see DO give a boost to the sector today.

  • AT&T: A Much-Needed Pullback [View article]
    <Or it could be people realizing that T is likely to continue underperforming the S&P500. T seems like a stock that many have overloaded on, so some may be at least deciding to decrease their T position and to diversify their portfolios to a greater degree.>

    I like this kind of thinking. However, I disagree on the timing of it. I would say-despite the selloff very recently, and maybe BECAUSE of lower prices-that as we approach (yet again) the all time highs, T will hold up better than higher beta stocks if we get another sell off and test of 16k or 15500k or whatever, T won't give up as much ground as others will. It's a solid LT buy under $35 imo, and anything south of that is even better.

  • An Idea For When The Market Is High [View article]
    Long ESV and for 2 clients as well.

    It's still a great buy here near 6% yield ($50) too. Anything below $50 is a great place to add (or start a position).

  • Why Not Consider This 12% Yielder As An Alternative To REITs And MLPs? [View article]
    Steve:

    Even many tax advisors aren't really that clear about exactly how to handle MLPs. That's why (along with the UBTI issue) most/all rec that one keeps them out of tax sheltered accounts. In smaller amounts, the IRS isn't gonna give a hoot. I don't think they would with even moderate (20-30k) amounts in IRAs. Of course, one has to watch the UBTI amount for each MLP, as the $1000 threshold would eventually be reached with enough shares (units), although each MLP will likely have a different amount, and many of them report negative UBTI amounts.

    Long BBEP, VNR, QRE in my account, PSEC in my Roth

    My clients hold CLMT, VNR, BBEP, KFN, and PSEC

    If they can just continue the 12% rate going fwd, longs will be doing just fine.

    < but clearly most investors doubt the company's ability to sustain the current dividend>

    The pps is moving up in a slow, but sure, way at the moment. I don't have a target price but take a look at recent price action. Green, green, green. I'm not saying this is a sure thing, but if you spend some real time watching what's going on with the stock right at this moment, it should tell you a lot about what is currently thought by deeper pockets than anyone here has.

  • The Event That Will End The Bull Market [View article]
    Well put. The more the Negative Nellies drone on and on, the further away the top is imo.

    Your Chicken Little dance is tiresome. You're only making predictions-nothing more. Anyone can do that. We are in for some rough seas for sure, but the entire sky falling??? That's only one of many scenarios that may occur, and is hardly a certainty.
