    The good news on RVP continues. In denying the BDX stay request,the appeals court must not have thought much of the probability of success of its appeal. Otherwise, the court would have granted the stay of the injunction. As things currently stand, BDX must do something very quickly to avoid terrible consequences for its business.

    Sorry, about my incorrect reference to the click issue. I have never taken your comments as recommendations and appreciate your willingness to share your ideas with SA readers.

    If you do not trust the government to keep its hands off the Roth benefits in the future, how can you have confidence in the general tax rate? O has backed off of the 529 plan tax grab. I would stick to the Roth idea. Withdrawals from a Roth account do not count against SS taxability, or Medicare limits. There is no MRD requirement and accounts grow tax free without any tax on withdrawals. Roth is by far the best way to go in my view. Sure the rules can be changed but that is true about all taxes. Indeed, the country even has an Obamacare tax which we were all told was not a tax. Good luck to you and your family.

    This opportunity is akin to the one presented several years ago with beaten down preferreds. Current income with the possibility of appreciation. I have some bonds or notes issued by Halcon, Forbes,Linn, Northern Oil, Parker, Sandridge, and GDP. Can you share the names of any of the ones that interest you? In addition to having the lights on at the end, some of the other issues have the possibility of being purchased such as Penn Va. Thanks.

    Thanks. My question was directed to RD who suggested that CR or you buy his house in CA and rent it back to him. Bad tax impact. I appreciate your detailed reply which gives us more food for thought.

    Is the 25% tax on rental properties still in effect?

    I agree with you that time is money. The book value of OSHC is around 16.88 after the recent stock repurchase. I would estimate a purchase at around 1.15 or roughly 19.41 per share. If that were to occur this year, your gain would be around 35% plus dividends paid. Not too bad for holding a small bank with low risk. Remember the OBAF results from last year. Hopefully, we will all be well rewarded before the end of the year. Good luck to you and all of the other holders.

    No need to rush this coiled spring. Management appears to have gotten the message and seems to be doing what needs to be done correctly. I would prefer taking some time to get the best price rather than selling for an earlier lower one. I am considering a transfer in kind of my IRA shares to my Roth account at current prices. The tax would be due on the current FMV. Any subsequent gain on the shares in the Roth would be tax free.

  • Will The Supreme Court Disallow Subsidies On Health Insurance Purchased Via The Federal Exchange? [View instapost]
    You are correct and that fact shows Congress meant to establish the limitation on subsidies. There is really no ambiguity on this one, only non- legal issues which are not part of the SC's functions.
