  • If STAG Industrial Was A Car It Would Be A Mustang [View article]
    So when it was trading at $25.19 its yield was 5%. Got it, thanks.

    My comment was in response to 'in a flash'. What do you consider to be a 'flash'? I would have thought several days or at most a week or two.

  • How To Maximize Your Kinder Morgan Gains And Increase Your Income [View article]
    Your math looks correct to me. If I were not already over allocated to both KMI and KMR, I would be tempted to buy more KMR.

    I own both in my non-qualified account. If I owned KMI in an IRA I would sell it and buy KMR with the proceeds.

    There is one thing I do not understand. There is a large short interest in KMI, which I can only assume is part of an arbitrage trade. That being the case, why does the gap between KMI and KMP exist? I would have thought that the arbs would make it disappear and keep it that way. Maybe it has something to do with dividends?

    YorgoSiam,

    The KMR dividend is not a stock split. A stock split has no economic effect, and simply results in a share count bookkeeping entry, plus a misunderstanding on the part of those investors who think there is more to it than this.

    Each share of KMR is backed by 1 i-unit of KMP. When KMP pays a distribution, the cash distribution from each i-unit of KMP is used to buy one NEW fractional i-unit of KMP. That new fraction i-unit of KMP then creates one NEW fractional share of KMR. The new fractional share of KMR is the stock dividend. The cash paid to the KMR i-units thus comes back on to Kinder's books.

    Compare this to what happens when KMP pays its cash distribution. The cash either goes into your brokerage cash, or your broker uses the cash to buy some number of EXISTING units of KMP on the open market (KMP does not have a DRiP). The cash paid to the KMP limited partners leaves Kinder's books and does not return.

    The KMR stock dividend is Kinder's automatic self funding source of NEW investment cash. This is very different from a simple stock split, and shows just how smart and investor friendly Rich Kinder is.

    Pen,

    I don't follow your logic regarding the KMR dividend vs the KMI dividend. It is undeniable that the KMR dividend will increase your KMR share count, and the increased KMR share count will translate into an increased KMI share count. How can the KMI dividend affect this? Please explain.

    Each share of KMR is backed by 1 i-unit of KMP. Thus, each 'yes' vote from KMR will become one 'yes' vote from KMP.

    nsolot,

    It is just you. STAG would have to be priced at $26.40 to yield 5%. Its all time high is $25.19.

    Its trading range today was close to the 6% yield price, closed at $21.72, 6.077% yield.

    I bought more STAG today at $21.70. This was the last gasp of a serious oversold condition, not just for STAG, but also for O and other eREITs. eREITs are now rising strongly.

    There are two indexes that I recommend.

    The GNT dividend is mostly capital gain and return of income. Very little of it is actual income.

    MAYHAWK,

    Natural gas futures are in contango, so UNG gets crushed. Stay away.

  • Medley Capital: An Attractive Hedge For BDC Portfolios [View article]
    MCC was not falling more percentage wise than PSEC, it was falling less. Since PSEC announced its result on Aug 25, PSEC is down 9% and MCC is down 5%.

    Makes one wonder where you get your 'facts'.

    nroberts98,

    In fact, as of this writing, PSEC has fallen 9% since it announced its results on Aug 25, and the Wells Fargo BDC Index (WFBDCPX) has fallen 1.9%. So it is the exact opposite of what you think has happened.

    As for MCC, it is down 5%.

    You can get historical quotes for MCC, PSEC and WFBDCPX at bigcharts.
