Do keep in mind, Viper, that the market is full of surprises. Just when negative sentiment about Linn gets cranked up is when Linn will likely rain on that parade. And re LINE and LNCO, remember that there are 6 times as many units of LINE outstanding than there are shares of LNCO. The vast majority of those choosing LNCO in lieu of LINE, have already done so. And anyone switching at this late date, in light of the gap between the two, doesn't exactly represent smart money, it seems to me.
LNCO was designed to encourage institutional money ownership. This usually is and without good reason should be considered the more accurate reflection of value. It has less friction to trading as well.
You can see efficient trading in LINE is hindered by all sorts of insanity and delusion like back fitting returns and a complete unwillingness to understand market mechanics in favor fractured 'analysis' which would embarrass them if they had shame and/or understood. But learn is not what they do.
The large MLP and especially the pipes are now efficiently priced. The corporate structure has been hot so the odds of finding something wildly under priced is low while over priced is very high.
Ron^3 is correct common sense is enough. But it begins by being honest with how much an individual really does understand and a willingness to learn.
Individuals and the discounts on closed end funds often creates wonderful opportunities. So do MLP structures.
It is starting to look like the "Basher's Ball" again, with lots & lots of new names of VERY short message history.....gee, I wonder why.
.......why not just post your sentiment?
When caught with lies, express validation in weight of group will, then when that does not work resort to cockroach personal attacks to degrade the target.
These are the tactics taught on Progressive/Collectivist websites. The intellectual undead no longer have Liberty, as free will personal agency. Their individuality is surrendered in a despairing attempt to have some one else provide their purpose.
So the temper tantrums are actually a very good sign for them. The Faustian contract they believe they have with the collectivist elite does not make them the most clever monkey, in their tree. They are not hep, popular or cool as they are not actually informed at all nor will the prepared chants hold up to actual rational thought.
Saddest of all is to see Ron^3 as an American elder still functioning as nothing more than a groupie.
