  • Vanguard Natural Resources Is On Track To Grow [View article]
    VNR and it's cousin LINE are on track for something all right, but, considering their massive debt/leverage, no profitability on operations, and no free cash flow, it's not anything positive.

  • Annaly Capital: Time To Get A Bit Cautious [View article]
    I've been so cautious on NLY that I never bought any. Had all the fun I could stand with AGNC.

  • Ignorance Works For Me [View article]
    Hope he wasn't suggesting that you opt out of this earth the way Livermore did. Interesting that his third and last wife had four previous husbands, each of whom had committed suicide. She made it a quintella with old Jesse. At least he did it in a classy hotel.

  • Transocean: High-Yield Contrarian Play Continues To Bottom [View article]
    Makes me even happier that I bought ESV on a dip. The drops on the roller coaster aren't as severe as with RIG or SDRL, and the recently instituted dividend is nicer, too.

  • Retirement Strategy: ETF Only Portfolio Vs. Buy The Dips Portfolio - August Update [View article]
    At least 3 of your ETFs are redundant; VYM, SCHD, and VIG. VYM is the only one you need.

    It's probably the same with SDY and DLN.

    Your active account is diversified, but your ETFs aren't. So I don't think it's an apples to apples comparison.

  • Reorganization could be costly for long-time Kinder Morgan Partners' owners [View news story]
    This is why I bought KMI in the first place. No future tax headaches like the ones the KMP and EPB owners are facing now. But, they need to quit whining...they've enjoyed the tax bennies for a while..now time to feed Uncle.

    So does your comment.

    What did I miss? Where is Schwab mentioned in this article, anyway?

  • A Few Reasons Why Southern Company Is A Good Investment [View article]
    David,

    Logically, you would think that coal should rebound as a result of any success in the Kemper project, but I doubt it. This anti-fossil fuel administration, who particularly hate coal, will do everything they can to kill it.

    Classic case of "don't confuse us with facts, our minds are made up".

  • Why I Will Start Social Security At Age 62 [View article]
    I took SS at age 62. My father died at age 66 and my mother at 73. If I had waited and died in the meantime, I would have been highly annoyed.

    I did the math and for me the lines crossed between 80 and 81. In other words, if I live past then, I would have been better off waiting. If I go before that, I'll have been ahead of the game. I'm 72 and in decent health for that vintage.

    In retrospect, I wish I'd waited. I was still working, and was penalized until I hit 65. Also, it is the difference of a few hundred $/month at this point. But, in the back of my mind the little voices were saying, "The money's there..take it"!

  • I'm Waiting Patiently For This Blue Chip REIT To Go On Sale [View article]
    Bought O a while back at $38.34. NNN was testing $30 around that time. Wish I'd bought it as well.

    Shoulda, woulda, coulda.

    It hasn't taken Yellen long to catch on to "Fed-Speak", which is talk a lot and not say much. Actually, she has been a more adept pupil than most.

  • A High Income 'Sleep Soundly' CEF Portfolio [View article]
    I have held HIO for many years, before Western Asset took it over. Before that, it was very volatile, but WA brought some stability to it, and it now functions quite well as a fixed income type instrument for me. Volatility is low and I like that it uses no leverage. Also, management is prone to lower the dividend when it is not covered rather than artificially keep the yield where it is via destructive ROC.
