  • Main Street Capital Corp.'s Dividend Sustainability Analysis (Pre-Q2 2015 Earnings) [View article]
    Strel: Thanks. Tax rules are supposed to encourage people to invest but they aren't easy to find just where these BCD's and REIT's and MLP's belong.
    I appreciate your answer. Dennis

  • Main Street Capital Corp.'s Dividend Sustainability Analysis (Pre-Q2 2015 Earnings) [View article]
    Folks: I admit. I am not smart enough to comprehend the article. I currently own MAIN in my IRA. I want to buy more but don't have the funds to buy inside the IRA because of the minimum required distribution coming up for me. I have the funds available in my taxable account.
    My question is: Does MAIN belong in a Tax Advantaged account (like an IRA) or in a Taxable Account?

  • Scanning The SA Family For Alpha: BuyandHold 2012 [View article]
    Investing is like a diesel engine. You might find TDC (top dead center) of the piston travel, but unless it goes a bit past TDC with some momentum it's not going to turn the crankshaft. You need facts (to find a good stock) and momentum (optimism) to get any results. Dennis

  • Scanning The SA Family For Alpha: Rosenose [View article]
    #1 No, #2 Yes, #3 No, #4 No, #5 No. The main reason for me to read SA is to get ideas on stock, other peoples opinion of a stock, and straighten out my thinking once in a while. These are all on SA.
    I regard R.S. opinions highly and I thank you for your efforts.
    When I see comments by Rosenose, I read them as I think Rose has a good head for stocks, sometimes contrary to the writers, too! But thoughtful.
    There are many commentators that pique my interest on SA and I think that is what we should all focus on. Focus on the comments by people who are similar to your goals and outlooks. Dennis

  • MLP Strategy Guide [View article]
    I agree that MLP's have been beaten down for no good reason, energy still has to get to the refiners to be useful. So we will have pipelines and MLP's. Nothing has changed. I am not able to spend a lot of time on MLP research and make the moves necessary to fill my retirement funds accounts so I have invested in KYN. I can only hope that this Houston based fund management can keep up their good investments for their shareholders of funds.

  • 4 Healthcare REITs For A Healthier Retirement Portfolio [View article]
    Chuck: Thanks for a soothing REIT evaluation on health care stocks. I hold HCP, HTA, OHI, & BMR in this area.
    This is a bit off the track, I know, but how would you examine KMI. I tend to still think of KMI as a MLP so I use the Cash Flow CFO. But I am concerned that I am only trying to make myself feel good with the CFO instead of the Adjusted Operating Earnings. I appreciate your reply.
    Respectfull, Dennis

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Another CEO Shakeup - Twitter's Costolo Steps Down [View article]
    447520: If enough critical transformers are knocked out, there are not enough spare parts available. Many of these are unique, one of a kind, and have to be manufactured as needed. No company can stockpile these expensive parts. If there is just a few out, shunting out, or bypassing the problem, is the method that is used now. Redundancy might be the answer to the stocking question, but it might not be the efficient way to answer the problem. (I believe) that transformers like these are not made in the US anymore and that manufacturing these transformers take about 3 months to manufacture. Good question.

    Bob: The electric utility industry is heavily government regulated now. The utilities are not going to move without government stepping in. If they take action without government regulators specific rules, then, if they guessed wrong on what the government rules requires, the utilities may have just spent and will have to trash their good intentions. Capitalist are patriotic even if they try (or not) to improve their product.

    Bob: The electricity grid is very vulnerable to terrorism. The massive failure will happen when ISIS gets around to it. It will be a lengthy repair job because the parts to fix it will not be available. In the meantime America fumbles, citizens suffer, young and old will die, and the president will make a speech about global warming.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: European Shares Rise On Greek Hopes [View article]
    Robgra: What do unions gain? First they press to force minimum wage of $15.00. Then press for union exceptions. The result is that now the employers are going toward unions FOR lower minimum wages. I would expect that after a year, or so, the unions would press again for higher minimum wage for union workers and the employers are stuck to pay the new minimum wage for their union workers. Hah! The unions have a win, win. Yeah, S. O. S.

  • No 'High Wire Act' For Starwood Property Trust [View article]
    Brad, I like your writing style. When you use acronyms you let the readers know what you're talking about. Example: loan-to-value (or LTV)
    Not everyone reads and writes REIT's (and stocks) all day long and acronyms detract from the information you are imparting to your readers.
    Thanks for your consideration to your readers like me.
