  • Linn Energy: A Different Kind Of Oil And Gas Company? [View article]
    @smurf > "cult-like" ? ? This is exceptionally harsh, don't you think? Perhaps you are more (or less) knowledgeable of 'cults' than I .

    I see no comparison/relationship of LINE/LINN to a 'cult'. Could you please explain your disgusting analogy ?

  • Grab A 15% Yield From This Undervalued Dow Dividend Stock [View article]
    @combie> I fully intend to continue investing in BA and advise my investors to do the same. Your BS about "Charleston is a mess" and supply chains are completely unfounded and reflective of a disgruntled Unionized Grunt. BA is expanding in Charleston which you are completely unaware, obviously !

    Long on BA.

    Jon, Another excellent Article. I've been an SO investor for over 30 years with DRIP along with many other utilities. IMO SO has always had the best management team, bar none.

    @Daniel>Considering all the negative comments to your 'Shenanigan Article', why has there not been a single Editor's rebuttal ? ? Not even a "Thanks" for the few agreements. Just wondering........

  • Pioneer Southwest Energy (PSE -2%) is cut to Sell from Neutral by UBS, which says the company's relatively weak hedge profile, tight coverage ratio, limited distribution growth history, and sub-8% yield leave it cautious at current levels. Among E&P MLPs, the firm prefers Linn Energy (LINE) and Legacy Reserves (LGCY). [View news story]
    My preference would be LINN, by far, in this potential MA.

  • We're Just At The Tip Of The Iceberg, Triple Net REITs Will Soon Be A Glacier Sector [View article]
    Not sure who he was referring to, and maybe he didn't either. However, this is no place for those offense remarks. I'm sure there are plenty of sites on the internet for his type. Thanks SA editors.

  • Linn Energy: Don't Believe The (Negative) Hype [View article]
    @rip> Great point, but too many assumptions omitted. If the merger is consummated, Bery's "net" operating cash will differ from past cash return. When companies merge, there are considerable operating cost savings, rather than operating as two separate and independent companies. Then there's the 'C' Corp to a MLP issue which should also be considered, as well as the merger costs and other resultant savings and earnings. Demand will be the greatest influence of all.

    These are some of the more simplistic issues that I am sure LINN/LNCO have reviewed.

    There certainly will not be an immediate "recoup", which no one should expect. IMHO, 6 to 8 years would be more reasonable, as an absolute maximum time-line.

    Been Long on LINN and continue to add, thanks to Barron.

  • More on ConocoPhillips (COP): Q4 EPS beat by a penny as an overall increase in production Y/Y managed to offset margin pressures to its bottom line. Net earnings cratered 58%, as commodity prices fell and the company was hit by lower average realized prices for oil and natural gas, falling 2.7% and 1.5%, respectively. Production from continuing operations edged up 1.8%, primarily due to new production from major projects and drilling programs, as well as higher production in Libya and China. Shares -0.9% AH. [View news story]
    I agree ! Long on COP.

  • Understanding Seadrill And Future Dividends [View article]
    I'd rather pay the taxes for year 2012 (extra quarter) dividends at the known tax rate than speculate on the tax rate for 2013, thanks to the pending Obamy Fiscal Cliff.
