  • Why Linn Completely Suspended Its Distribution [View article]
    Maybe but if you consider the strategy of upstream mlps, it was to provide a cash flow to investors using large amount of leverage to produce a commodity with a rising price. This worked so long as the price rose. Now the tide is out and they are almost all going to zero barring a sudden sharp increase in oil and gas orices.

  • Is Silver Running Out Of Sellers? [View article]
    Yes, silver bulls have been talking about this alleged shortage of physical for coins for ten years. The inefficiency of a government nonprofit organization where nobody's income depends on maximizing profits at keeping a suitable inventory is not an indicator of shortage.

  • Wal-Mart Is Outpacing Costco In e-Commerce [View article]
    I use a lot because I hate shopping. How they make any money, I dont know. I order fifty dollars of household stuff a week. It usually arrives in three boxes on different days. Last week I got a large box containing a small item that would fit in a regular envelope and cost less than two dollars. Another large box came with a Two dollar pack of plastic wrap. The cat litter weighs forty pounds and costs four dollars. Usually comes in a box too. I would just go the store but they are often out of stock and the lines at the cashiers are annoying.

    Costco is in a different space - high quality items that vary a lot in availability. People like going there for the surprises of new items. I found that I did not save much there as I bought a lot of stuff I never used. I like sams club better because I can order online and just pick it up at the store., I dont get it. Everything I buy often is double the price. Maybe it is good for buying certain things like name brand clothes?

  • Retirement Strategy: The Oil Crash Could Be A Dividend Growth Investor's Best Friend Of The Decade [View article]
    Coal is still widely used. Has not helped coal stock owners. The same could happen to oil companies. The non state owned ones have to scramble all over the world in high cost areas, whereas the arabs just turn on a tap. The private companies will go first.

  • CenterPoint Energy's 5% Yield Looks Pretty Good Right Now [View article]
    Yes but their fifty percent share of enable is fifty percent of cnp market cap. Thats why cnp is down so much, because enable went down. I see this as a way to buy a gas mlp with reduced risk. cnp shares will not turn around until enable does though and cnp dividend depends on enable dividend, it could go down if low gas prices continue.

    Coal is still the main source of the worlds electricity and used to be the main source of chemicals and gas. Coal stocks are down 99 percent. Could happen to oil in twenty years. Nothing is safe anymore.

  • CEFL Now Yielding 23% - What's Wrong With The Closed-End Funds? [View article]
    It has taken quite a while for the major oil companies to go down significantly. Now it looks like the whole basic materials sector is going to go down real hard with many bankruptcies. That usually means the whole economy tanks. Leveraged high yield bonds leveraged again is the worst place to be with that and increasing interest rates.

  • Chesapeake Energy: If You Were Disappointed By The Recent News, Don't Be [View article]
    They made a lot of money selling land. when oil prices were high and many companies felt pressure to show involvement in US shale. Most of the buyers regretted this later and gave up. Selling will not be so profitable in the future. CHK will not be able to finance drilling extensively and leases will expire.

  • EWC: Consider Choosing Canada [View article]
    Canada has a sensible immigration policy and continues to attract skilled immigrants without the hordes of unskilled ones the usa gets. They actually regulate banks compared to usa. Long ewc, too early so far.
