    I am retired, so the only one on your list that interests me for immediate meaningful income is CTL. If you are young and still working, buy the whole list.

  • The Power Race: Natural Gas vs. Coal [View article]
    Looks like CHK and EOG are going to be the big winers as natgas prices slowly rise. For the short haul, both are shifting most of their drilling toward oil and only drilling on their vast gas acreage in order to retain acreage according to their royalty agreements.

  • Kinder Morgan Partners: One Company, Three Ways to Invest [View article]
    There is still another way to get Kinder Morgan exposure. It is through a fund that does not issue K-1s but gives good yields. It is FEN. Also, give SRV a look.

  • Risk On: Funds Flow Into Speculative ETFs [View article]
    I am confused about how these data reflect the performance of specific classes of "enhanced" ETFs and CEFs. How about giving us your opinion of such fund groups as Nuveen, Eaton Vance or be more specific, what about funds like IGD, BOE, or DPO.

  • Why China and India Are the Biggest Emerging Market Losers [View article]
    I suggest spreading out emerging country investments to funds such as VWO and a bit of IGD.. instead of concentrations in a few.

  • Desperately Seeking Yield Through Equities: Part 4 - Telecom Stocks [View article]
    I get a kind of a gloomy feeling about FRT in this article "grim reaper",etc. In this regard, I am considering a reallocation of my telephone stock holdings from FTR to one of the others on your list. However, before I do this, I really would like to know how Windstream (WIN) compares with the companies on your list. Please respond.

  • Top 30 Basic Material Stocks Favored by Big Money [View article]
    I agree. However, I think that EOG is looking for larger fish like CLR in the Bakken. Perhaps CHK would be interested in PVA in the Eagle Ford.

  • 6 American Small-Cap Oil and Gas Equities That Currently Yield 8% or More [View article]
    There are at least two funds available to investors that hold oil&gas MLPs in their portfolio and DO NOT issue a form K-1 and so, are IRA friendly. They are SRV and FEN.

  • ETFs Introduced / Overhauled at Powershares [View article]
    You said that seven existing funds have been changed to the RAFI method. What are they? I now have PAGG, PCEF, and PGF in my portfolio. Are they involved in this change?

  • Natural Gas ETFs and Contango [View article]
    Wouldn't it be better for long term investors to buy companies like CHK or EOG that beside gas also have a subltantial oil kicker. UNG is a spot future in sight.

  • Marathon May Have Increased the Value of Eagle Ford Leaseholders Part 4 [View article]
    Thanks Michael. I bought Sampson because it sounded like a cheap risk. Otherwise, I split $8,000 between CHK and EOG because of their good acreage.

  • 17 High Dividend Energy Stocks With Strong Growth [View article]
    I note that most in your list will be faced with a tax hassel with the form K-1. This can be avoided and still get exposure to these same companies by owning one of these funds: FEN or SRV.
