Just a general comment....If you have LINE in your IRA, you should understand the tax implications. It can get complicated depending on the amount of annual distributions. It's generally better and much simpler from a tax standpoint to hold LNCO in the IRA...but you should do your own research and decide what's best for you. If you have a tax advisor, he or she can help explain the issue of LINE vs LNCO in an IRA.
You can learn a lot about LINE by reading this message board for several days. A lot of smart folks posting good facts and opinions which might help. It's also good to get very familiar with Linn Energy's website and the stuff they have for investors.
The vast majority of the downside has already occurred, the vast majority of the upside is still to come. It's up to you, but I certainly think the return a year from now will be quite good. 11% distribution plus any capital increase.
