  • Update: BP Taps 'Her Majesty' For Help With Its Legal Woes [View article]
    Apparently, the author of this article is as biased against BP as New Orleans judge Barbier. Basically what BP and the U.K. government want is a recognition of the intent of the settlement. It certainly was NOT to pay claims to uninjured parties. Common sense, common law, what's not to understand?

  • Avoid Prospect Capital [View article]
    This article is full of conflicting opinions, largely unfounded. The dividend yield on PSEC easily covers the risks involved for income investors.

  • BP Still Needs To Clean Up Its Reckless Act: Another $18 Billion In Fines On The Horizon [View article]
    The whole tone of this article is biased against BP. Why? It is a top story that the author is milking for cash from Seeking Alpha for every word printed without regard for the damage it creates. I would think that SA should be seeking a bit of common sense in this matter. BP's well blew out. This is a risky business that is needed. BP is doing it's part to help those that were injured, but not a cent for those that filed false injury claims. Hopefully, the Supreme Court will bring some common sense to bear on this corruption.

  • Halcon Resources: The Future Remains Questionable And Unclear [View article]
    Halcon's large acreage in the TSM is what makes me "stay the course", debt burden notwithstanding. The TMS play is a seductive attraction. There is oil down there. Those with acreage will be the winners.

  • BP Played Dirty Again And Got Its Clock Cleaned [View article]
    BP's mistake was in expecting a fair shake from Louisiana's often rather corrupt legal history.

    At last a good explanation of why Return of Capital is not bad.

  • AT&T Offers A 5.25% Dividend Yield And Consistent Share Buybacks [View article]
    I am with Joe Gomer in holding all three (vz,t,vod) . As a retired old frog of 82, I want the dividend safety provided. Any growth at all is just a plus.

  • My Biggest Fear As A Bond Investor [View article]
    A word to the wise. Stay with your bond investments. There will be a lot of time to retreat when the time comes.....probably 2 or 3 years hence.

  • Outlook For Equities: Time To Take The Foot Off The Accelerator [View article]
    I agree. The Bush tax cuts were ill advised. Spending money on a war that was discretionary and not providing for it's cost smacks of stupidity. Worse, now we are expected to extend this economic nonsense by the Tea Party's control of Congress.

    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.

  • High Dividend Stocks: Rising Oil Prices Will Increase Dividends [View article]
    I hold Sabine (SBR) in my IRA account and have never had a tax problem. The distributions are treated the same as ordinary dividends received from any stock. There may be tax issues with some royalty trusts but, not with the SBR type trust.

  • American Realty Capital Properties: "A Pretty Crushing Blow" [View article]
    This is all about a mole hill morphing out of control. What's an accountant to do for amusement except cook the books every now and then?

  • More on "grossly negligent" ruling against BP [View news story]
    BP has best acreage in the GOM, but worst legal staff in the oil patch. They grossly underestimated the Louisiana legal scavengers.

  • GE set to prevail in its bid for Alstom, but some see a Pyrrhic victory [View news story]
    A pact with France is asking for trouble. I commented about this a week or so ago and my comment was deleted by SA. Apparently, I insulted the French. I stand by my comment.
