  • MLPs Are Not Extremely Overvalued By Any Measure [View article]
    So much more correct than was the last article I read on Seeking Alpha on MLPs. I've owned them since 1994 and am yet to be unhappy with them. I doubt I ever will be...since I plan on holding them until I'm at St. Peter's gates. Then the children are welcome to them.

    Thanks for the good read.

  • Marine Harvest: Consider Holding for Dividends and Eventual Capital Gains [View article]
    My, I do hope you're correct. As a long-time holder of a number of JF stocks, I'm not too worried. Yet, I do have a tendency to fret when I get under water on any stock.

  • Seadrill Poised to Profit From Growing Asian Market [View article]
    I've held SDRL since 9/05 and it won't be too long before I'll have received in dividends an amount equal to my purchase price. My only regret is that I didn't buy more in 2005!

  • 7 Electricity Stocks With Substantial Dividends [View article]
    I love it. Except for PGN, I've held all of these years and years. Was disappointed and scared about DUK for awhile, but hung on and now I'm happy again.

    If the DUK/PGN is finalized, then I'll have them all. I'm so confident of these issues I rarely even check on them. Except for the dividends, of course, I check on those every quarter.

  • Brookfield Infrastructure Partners: Utility Play Wrapped in an MLP [View article]
    Five Plus,

    I would have, but ETP was not in the IRA. Amazing, since most of my yielding stocks are. It would have hurt me for three years in a row. Now it's back down to negative numbers.

    Since all the money I've got left to play with is in the IRA, I'd have to put BIP in there and I didn't want to blithely walk into a UBIT tax problem.

    Thanks for your reply...and for remembering my prior message.

  • MLPs: Investments That Are Required to Pay Dividends [View article]
    After your basis reaches zero, the distributions are taxed as cap gains.

    Again, you might want to check naptp.org which gives great examples on taxation of MLPs. I wouldn't take as gospel all you read on SA - or any other - board re taxation.

    Has anyone ever had a problem with the UBIT in their tax-deferred accounts?

  • 3 Stocks That Could Outperform in a Flat Market [View article]
    Since I've held two of the above for a long time, and have been in and out of the third, I like the tone of your article. :)

    We'll both hope you're right, won't we!

    When's the ex-date? I've tried twice to enter, but both times it went up past my limit without stopping to pick me up. Guess I'll put my thumb out and try again.

    I think you're right about the drumming part!

  • Prechter Says Dow 1,000; I Say 'Not Possible' [View article]
    I can't imagine why anyone would take the words of a former punk rock drummer seriously. I'm amazed Prechter isn't a household joke! This isn't the first call of his that I've disagreed with and I doubt it will be the last.

  • Energy Transfer Partners: Hitting Bumps in the Road, But Not in the Ditch [View article]
    There is no "correct" answer. If indeed the only funds you have to invest are in a tax-deferred account, then of course you have no choice BUT to buy it in the IRA. If that be the case, try to buy one that has historically not generated positive UBIT.

    Also, buy the ones that you might trade out of in an IRA. Saves having to tax the recapture into taxes.

    I have MLPs in both my IRA and in my taxable a/c. So far I'm happy with that arrangement, knowing full well if the one(s) in my IRA start to show positive UBIT I will sell them.
