  • The Safest MLP Dividends  [View article]
    Fortunate to have sold lots of kmi at 41, long recently epd. mmp. only with a small investment for now. Good thing I reduced exposure to the energy sector awhile back before the big downfall. I did give back gains from the last few years on etp. paa. ngls. wpz. and ete. Good to be cautious in this sector for now me think.

  • Retirement Strategy: Do Your 2016 Plans Have Discipline And Focus?  [View article]
    Having a good mix of higher div. stocks with slower growth ex. T. PPL. EPD. VTR. FUN. MAIN. and lower div stocks with higher growth ex. HD. DIS. JNJ. GIS. KO. WFC. MCD. CBRL. XOM. PSX. BA. LMT. GE. UPS. TROW. Staying well diversified in 7-8 sectors. I also buy the drips and sell the rips as the day to day market action gives opportunity. I am also thinking to add another utility to PPL. perhaps Entergy, AEP. or FE. I would not look to take on too much risk by reaching for higher div. yield . I prefer the higher quality div. growth stocks. Thank you for your enjoyable articles. Have a blessed Chanukah, Christmas and a joyful new year. May you prosper, be in good health even as your soul prospers.

  • MLP Investors Fear Contagion As Kinder Morgan Slashes Its Dividend 75%  [View article]
    Unreal how kmi. was Merrill Lynch/Ba. top picks with a $45 target price and s&p and morning star all had buy ratings. Now they are changing their tune, as ML/Ba has went to neutral and $17 target price. A little too late for many, so much for analyst. Fidelity was more accurate as they were negative on all mlps just about. They seem to be negative on utilities and reits as well. It may be because of the higher debt and slower growth.

    Sold kmi at 41, long best of breed mmp and epd. only for pipers with 1.4 dist coverage and good growth. Gave back some profits in pipers this year, but I am fortunate to still be up nicely over the last 3-4 years. Only other energy holdings are vlo. psx. cvx. and xom.

  • Kinder Morgan Will Not Cut Its Dividend  [View article]
    lol, glad I sold at 41, sorry I got back in with a small amount at 33, glad I sold at 27. Long recently in best of breed pipers epd. mmp. psxp. vlp. aprox. 2% of portfolio. Why play around with kmi when you can own mmp. and epd. Both have 1.3 dist. coverage and bought out their gp. long ago, 5-6 % dist with 6-10% dist growth which is achievable, both had excellent quarters as well. Psxp. and vlp. have 20-25% dist growth and strong gps in vlo. and psx. Happy hunting and can we get at least one more article about kmi. lol.

  • Retirement Strategy: Are You Buying This Dip?  [View article]
    Hello RS, I went to 7% to cash a few days ago, I did put all that back to work tday and yesterday. I added to my utility ppl at 4 % lower, I also bought back cvx. dis. hd. and added to unp and bx. My first thought was the s&p is trading between 2000 and 2100 so at close to 2100 I sold a little. The thought than became a day or 2 later will there be a rally to end of year. I do tend to put the money back too early at times. I guess I like to keep the money invested. At least I saved 4% on my in and out on ppl. and came in lower on cvx. thank you for all your good work and God bless you.

  • Targa Resources As An Exceptional Income Investment  [View article]
    long mmp. epd. psxp. all with 1.3 dist. coverage. and vlp. with a 2.0 dist coverage. Low cost of capital makes for greater dist. and growth down the line. Mmp and epd no idr fees to general partners as they bought them out long ago. Psxp and vlp. have strong general partners and many drop downs to promote growth. I gave back too much of my profits by reaching for higher dist. with etp. ngls. wpz. paa. and kmi. All these have to borrow money at such a high cost it will be hard for them to grow. This is why they continue to sink in stock price. Kmi had to borrow at 9.5% interest, ouch. All these all have low dist coverage and are over extended. Stay with quality and stop reaching for high yield it is a bad investment. Also psxp and vlp forecast continued 20-30% dist gowth, mmp 10%, These pipers mmp. psxp and vlp are all connected to refiners as the gasoline keeps flowing.

  • Kinder Morgan: The 'Doom And Gloom' Is Overdone  [View article]
    9 % to borrow is too much, they had a bad earnings report, the div. coverage is low. They are not the best player as of now. Better to be in epd. or mmp. with 1.3 dist. coverage and lower costs for future growth.
