    I go out of my way to shop CVS now. All good ideas are worth supporting in whatever small way we can but I am not yet a shareholder.

  • Capitalizing On Cannabis: Mountains Of Money Amassing For Marijuana Investment  [View article]
    I am one who is not hoping big tobacco or alcohol will be allowed in early. Let the legal market develop with new money and new ideas along with those early risk takers who have sacrificed so much in time and tears. Too 'speculative'? Don't invest. The title of 'Big Marijuana' should go to the socially responsible groundbreakers with the business acumen to make it work.

  • $UAN CVR Has Emissions At Coffeyville, Kansas, Site, Filing Shows   [View instapost]
    Limited information in the link but as someone with an environmental compliance background, this looks to be a release to air that could result in fines of several tens of thousands of dollars (v. millions for a spill to a waterway/land contamination). Staff will be busy figuring out how to prevent a reoccurence. Failure to report the release would be worse.

    The year end cap gains and div for an 11.1% return (on my cost) was good to have after a down year. Looking forward to World Cup.

  • Fertilizer Partnerships Offer Enticing High-Yield Income  [View article]
    OK- last unsolicited plug...I really had to think hard about another newsletter after my experience with two others prior to yours. With those I felt nothing but pressure and increased anxiety brought on by information I simply did not understand or could not readily act upon. I lost money with those first two from day one. The information in DL allows me to learn as I go (hedging/options) and be more comfortable with my decisions (buy/sell). As for results, I have tracked each decision I have made based on what you have published and I have more than covered the annual cost in a very short amount of time. Very pleased so far so keep at it!

  • Fertilizer Partnerships Offer Enticing High-Yield Income  [View article]
    One thing I like about DividendLab (and it 'precursor') is that ideas like energy byproduct to fertilizer get early thorough treatment enabling a smaller investor like me to have the confidence to jump in. I suspect RNF will behave like UAN did in its early months and that there will be opportunity to add to what I have at a lower price regardless of what the overall market does. Near term, I am looking to sell puts on RNF just like I did with UAN to either pick up more shares or earn money. That said, RNF seems reasonably priced today for the longer term.

    Hi Todd, I figured that. My knee jerk rxn not too long ago would have been to by another round at 13% less. I am more thoughtful now and am looking into it myself. It is why I don't want ANY holding to be much more that 2-3%, and why I have way more individual holdings that people tell me I should at this point. Still learning as I go.

  • Dominion Resources Black Warrior Trust: Pays A High Dividend Like A REIT, Yet More Like A Stock  [View article]
    The article is a bit confusing to me in that you provide the Yahoo! business summary that reads like a natural gas play then in your opinion you talk about coal as a staple and clean coal technology as an upside. Thank you for bringing DOM to my attention. Look forward to learning more about it.
