  • Can The Bulls Make A Stand Near Support? [View article]
    It's all George Bush's fault, yada, yada, yada, how lame and tiring after close to six years. They don't teach much at MSNBC land do they. P.S. Your comments suit the HUFFINGTON POST and not SEEKING ALPHA. Have a great day.

    "Investing defensively against a comeuppance far in the future guarantees underperformance. The desire to profit in the stock market MUST include a willingness to experience its fluctuations." Jason, that is truly the most important point in your article, and I am passing it on to my two young son's, bravo.

    Thomas,

    You are clearly a very smart man as evidenced by your comment, however your political tangent at best could or is only 50% right. You fail to equally blame the do nothing Senate controlled by the extremist left wingers who are not interested in political solutions for anything. Other than that, keep up the good work.

  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments!! MLP SPECIAL EDITION !!! [View instapost]
    IT, I have NML on my watch list as a possible purchase since MLPL is so overpriced in comparison. Even though it has ROC, I still believe it could be suitable for me and my Roth. Best regards.

    Unless you are getting free money in a 401K (company match or contribution), the tax free Roth in my opinion beats any tax deferred investment vehicle out there. Plus, you don't have to be in bed with the Federal Gov't.

    I would like to own MLPL very much but it's outstanding performance in price holds me back. I would like to have a 20% position in that category, so in the mean time I invested 5% each into SDRL, LNCO & NAT. As of today I am looking closely at ROYT. If anyone else is looking at ROYT, I would appreciate any pro or con opinions. Great blog I.T.

  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments!! OBAMACARE DIEING?? [View instapost]
    I don't see how it matters one way or the other. The President has clearly demonstrated many times over that any law he does not like he will not enforce, or he will modify any law he does not like thru executive order. Silly rules by the common folk (courts/legislatures) have no barring upon our King. (Sorry, I meant President)

  • Is It A Good Time To Buy MLPs? [View article]
    Prices on the MLP fund I want to own has gone to the moon in price. Bought some NAT, SDRL & LNCO as an imperfect proxy. When the prices become more rational then I will be a buyer.

  • The Nifty Fifty Market [View article]
    Excellent 1rst article, thank you for the information. I did not know the full extent of the divergence taking place in the stock market. Because of this article and several others this week pointing out the dangers present, I will be increasing my cash allocation. Good job.

  • Why The UBS-ETRACS 2X High-Income ETN Is A Poor Choice [View article]
    I agree that holding a tax free investment in a tax free investment vehicle (ROTH IRA) is not an optimal way to invest, but even though that is the case, doing such does not necessarily make such a choice a flat out mistake, and one that should not be done if the opportunity presents itself. Earlier this year I was too over exposed in stock and wanted some government bonds. I made the choice to purchase C.E.F. Muni funds with my ROTH money because of the 6-7% coupon rate and the potential for capital appreciation on muni's. My muni funds are up approx. 10% in value since purchased in the first week of January. Also, at times I have owned SHYD In my ROTH as a cash proxy yielding 3.5%, since I don't want to hold cash, and SHYD has no correlation to my stock investments. For me, I like holding muni's in my ROTH IRA for now and I am enjoying the ride up.

  • Depressed Stock Price Makes An Ideal Entry Point Into CenturyLink [View article]
    One last thing, $29.15 "is a better and more" incredible sales price, IMHO

  • Depressed Stock Price Makes An Ideal Entry Point Into CenturyLink [View article]
    I believe the $29.15 had more to do with the overall market collapse in the last hour, than being only CTL specific. Every position of mine was in the red except for MSFT, this is probably the same result for many who have a diversified stock portfolio. I don't think the author can predict when train wrecks will occur, like Thurs. or Fri. this week in the market. Therefore, I don't believe the $31.05 "incredible sales price" was an outlandish opinion at the time it was given. I like CTL, and will buy more if it continues to drop. GLTA
