  • An Assault On Yield-Oriented ETFs [View article]
    Once again, the myth of safety in diversification is exposed. In a fickle market like ours, diversification means we all go down....not some, but ALL.

  • 3 Reasons Not To Flee Dividend Stocks [View article]
    I am retired and ALL of my investments are in my IRA account. They all fell like a rock in water over the last three weeks, so, no safety there. My only hope is that there is no reduction in dividends coming. Stocks, ETFs, MLPs, BDCs, made no difference, all down like in 2008.

  • BP Gives Up On Cellulosic Ethanol In The U.S. [View article]
    Not at all, only the unattractive ones from a cost/reward analysis. BP's strong suit is exploration and production of petroleum.

  • An oil company of BP's scope can't operate outside of politics, but it seems entangled in a remarkable number of places. BP’s ready fall into the Russian embrace is fraught with danger, and it is a victim of deteriorating relations between the U.K. and UAE. It also remains bogged down in the Deepwater Horizon spill aftermath, but angry rhetoric seems to have been tempered in Azerbaijan. [View news story]
    Apparently with all the bad press, now is the time to buy some BP.

  • More on the BP/Rosneft TNK-BP deal: The total value of the cash and Rosneft shares BP is getting sums to $26.8B at current market prices. With a 19.75% stake, BP expects to have 2 seats on the board and to be able to put on its books its share of Rosneft's earnings, production, and reserves. The WSJ's Andrew Peaple estimates the deal will leave BP with marginally lower production, but maybe higher oil and gas reserves. [View news story]
    This looks good IF the reserves and directors part holds up.
