    Also..., beware! There can be a big spread between the BID and ASK on these type of bonds. I should be very surprised to see these bonds purchased at $98.75. BAX

  • This Fund May Be Your Best Call For Preferred Shares  [View article]
    It's been my experience..., the ONLY time to buy closed end funds is during a major market sell off. This is especially true with preferred funds. See 10 year chart on FFC. I would be cautious purchasing FFC of any closed end fun fat today's prices.

  • 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.

  • 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.
