    RK: what about the huge supplies coming on from the(1) Bakken (2) eagle Ford and (3) Permian petroplex? It's possible near term oil prices could go down with these high supplies coming into our domestic market.

  • 2 Tactical Municipal Bond Strategies For Non-Qualified Retirement Portfolios [View article]
    CEF's can be very, very good investments. I've used then as building blocks in my clients portfolio's for years. Like most stocks and bonds.., it's best to purchase them after a market event.., i.e, Meredith Whitney, 2008-2009, etc. CEF's typically have poor liquidity and are very volatile. This can make for extraordinary "buying" opportunities. I personally own several Cal Muni CEF's that have appreciated more than 50% since 2008 plus they are providing me with a handsome state/fed tax free income.

  • Declining Propane Demand Will Eventually Threaten AmeriGas' Dividend [View article]
    I agree with ValueForGood! APU is also a innovative company. They have AmerGas exchange racks in every large and small shopping center in our country. This was unheard of just 10 years ago. Can't imagine how many AmerGas propane tanks were purchased two days ago for our annual 4th of July celebration barbecues. Also, for the many rural communities in our country which have no gas pipeline access propane is a way of life for heating and cooking. BAX. PS: I live in BCS, Mexico..., where all cooking is done by propane stoves. Purchasing an electric range is unheard of in the Baja because of power outages and reliability issues.

    Betsy Graseck has been rooting and tooting BAC for ten years. I'm surprised she wasn't tarred and feathered in 2008.

  • Morgan Stanley advisers green-lighted for Twitter [View news story]
    I agree with dwest392..., MS compliance has overwhelmed it's retail financial advisors. NEW office managers have NO cohones. It's a floundering ship that will soon capsize because of obsolesences. Please listen to Charles Darwin.., this is what evolution is all about..."survival of the fittest." BAX. PS: I remember Merrill, lynch, fenner and Smith.., it was the PREMIER retail firm on Wall Sreet..l now it's a BAC whipping boy...SAD.

  • Alaska Communications' CEO Discusses Q4 2013 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    The BEST thing ALSK did was to abondon their dividend. The problem is.., It should have been done five years ago or longer. Past management and their incompetent board of directors were enriching themselves at shareholder expense. Now ALSK is struggling to survive. VZ coming into the market is adding kerosene to the fire...
