  • The Death Of Retail  [View article]
    Walmart and the likes are partly to blame - their customer service is horrific. I don't want to have nightmares about my shopping experience - meanwhile AMZN has free return.

    But change is real. I venture to say 10-20% of retail jobs will be gone in next recession - can you tell me what these people will be doing?

    That these products could not be held long term - garbage. One can hold these products for payouts and hedge their value with long term puts on various sub-components. Appropriately chosen puts would be paid by distributions - and then some.

  • No February distribution for Pacific Coast Oil Trust unitholders  [View news story]
    Royalty trust is not worthless when dissolved as long as they have oil in the ground, with wells up for sale. This trust if dissolved will be worth more than $1/share.

  • No February distribution for Pacific Coast Oil Trust unitholders  [View news story]
    The value of the trust is worth more than $0/share. I'm guessing at least $1 - even if oil doesn't recover by 2017.

    I wouldn't call what you are seeing capitalism. Crony polticial system or crony capitalism is what this is. How many millions of dollars flowed into DC from outside the country? How many millions of dollars are 'completely noninfluential' in the coffers of Clinton Foundation?

    Until ties between DC and business/foreign contributions are decoupled, there is no end in sight.

    Low price of oil is bad for the economy:)? And economists were harping on it as such a stimulus.

  • Saudi Arabia: Investors Get A Chance At Non-Oil Economic Growth With New ETF  [View article]
    How about the dollar to riyal peg, huh? While the other petrol currencies have followed oil down, riyal has not. One of these days, this will have to be addressed. That's one hell of a currency short, if not a stock market one.

    How about using trusts with 15-20 year life span with no debt as proxies for oil rebound - ROYT? Paulo, I'd like to see you explore that idea.

  • Wells Fargo's MLPs most likely to cut distributions: ETE, ETP, WMB, WPZ, AMID, APLP, CCLP, CEQP  [View news story]
    Why bother picking? Go long AMLP or MLPL, hedge it with long term puts AMLP puts. At these prices, you can do so with almost no risk - distributions are high enough to pay for your puts and then some. Thats the only risk free investment I'll reveal;).

  • Actionable Insights: Chevron And Long-Term Yield  [View article]
    Give me a break. Even renewables need oil - they need it for plastics needed in their manufacture. In fact, majority of civilized world would benefit from higher temperatures - hell, northern US, Canada, Europe, and Russia would be better off if it was warmer.
