    Wells Fargo drip plan and pushing out distribution payment date by 15 days.

    I understand the drip, but do they really need 15 extra days to earn that distribution? GLTA

    Arclight selling shares....why?

    The biggest was 3.75M shares in a private sale on 4/16 by Arclight Capital partners llc. There two enities doing the selling are Arclight Capital partners llc and Arclight energy partners fund V.

    Maybe they needed the cash because they are bought Chevron assets in Alberta about the same time ??

    Looking at their website they are just another private equity firm buying and selling energy infrastructure assets.
    Looking at their assets, I see NO ENBL listed. Maybe they call it something else?

    Blendtec & Lancer Smoothie Station

    nyjets_0001 nyjets_0001 Jun 23, 2016 3:04 PM Flag

    Yes 2013, however with the hype of Pepsi extending their sales resources in the new agreement and smoothies, shakes & coffee drinks in the fast food industry receiving a big push to sell drinks, plus this is a BIB product (the station), and franchises need to be uniform, this is either competition or opportunity.

    It does not have to be a better product (Beta v. VHS) just one that works regardless if frozen, patented or not.

    I posted here at least a year ago about a vendor who is selling its smoothie product for supermarkets shelves. Not sure where that went or if it was a success or not.

    Just discussion and I thank you for your input. Cheers !!

    Burger King, sorry for the confusion

  • Not sure if this has been discussed or if product is available as of yet.

    As BK teamed up with Pepsi to create Cheeto Cheese sticks, I wonder if they can team up to sell the BIBs if BK gets these drink stations installed at their stores.

    Lancer CEO has you tube video making a smoothie drink at a BK store the old fashioned way.

    The new platform is an automated station for making smoothies, frozen coffee drinks, and other beverages using refrigerated bag-in-box (BIB) ingredients and ice. This beverage station will give restaurants and other foodservice operators a fast, efficient, fully-contained system to expand their menus with popular smoothies and other cold beverages. When released, the beverage station will be commercially available for a unit price of under $9,000 with qualifying volumes.

    Go to the website they have 1099s PDFs for tax years. I just did this recently and the 2014 was revised 2/23/2015 with a 13.79% ROC.

    NO ROC in 2013 or 2015

    Upcoming Cnp earnings

    nyjets_0001 nyjets_0001 Jun 16, 2016 4:07 PM Flag

    Hey HVN

    Been a LT holder of the 3 stool legs of CNP, OGE & ENBL. CNP has HY compared to peers. They are trying to decide on strategic stuff. Made some announcement awhile back. They are a transmission company. No generation. Dividend changes are announced in January.
    it was a good buy $16-$18. As usual my timing was off. Bought a batch in Jan 2015 $22.75, then averaged down 6 months later !!

    I have about 600 shares spread across accounts over the years with Divy re-invest turned on. GL

    It would be nice within the year. However if they unload/spinoff something big, it could be sooner. Anything under $40 is a buy.

    four years ago, anytime it was under $30 it was a buy.

    TYCO Merger and Spin off

    by pmg27 Apr 22, 2016 8:24 AM

    Read your post, thanks for the info, quick question, the 34.88 and the difference of JCI Plc trades at is the taxable portion which you refer to? IF one decides to keep/receive JCI Plc shares, and new shares are priced at 44.88 ($10 difference than cash price offer), 100 shares X $10 is $1000 reportable capital gain? They consider it short or long? If this is correct, then an investor's long term gain will be reset to $34.88 or $44.88 if new shares are elected.

    Personally i'm in at $44.67 2 years. Almost BE, so I'm tempted to get out and revisit. Don't care about auto spin off shares at this time. TIA

    Tyco will effect a reverse stock split so that Tyco shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 0.9550 shares for each of their existing Tyco shares.

    Thanks for the article. In looking of what we own, CLOs makes up 16% of FV with CLO yield at 9.85% at cost and 25% of portfolio B- to CCC-. Info as of 3/31/16. Hopefully, the marketplace CLO rally/improvement strengthens and reflects in share price as being down 20% has not worked out so far for my account. Cost $13.5 andNAV at $11.72.

    Also, once ACAS is absorbed, is ascf attractive enough to be purchased? Why buy the cow if your getting the fees for the milk? GL

    Waiting For The $34.00 buyout.

    by hivoltagebob Apr 7, 2016 11:44 AM
    nyjets_0001 nyjets_0001 Jun 7, 2016 2:08 PM Flag

    Hey HVB-

    For some reason I buy too early and you lower. EDE, GSK, etc. LOL. Anyway, the energy related stocks did a nice about face. Got a dividend from SE today. Tough to find something above 5% and somewhat stable. I believe the utility movement was due to Yellen/interest rate talk. I honestly don't know why. The dividends would be greater, than quarter or even a half point raise. The price appreciation shaved a whole one percent from MDU. PPL not as much. I'm sticking with OKE, VVC, WEC, OGS, CNP & SO too. Might sell TE and move into Royal Dutch @ 7.25%.

    The Kemper plant was the right idea at the time. It is proven tech, some CO2 and slurry waste, just put it in the ground, however they just ramped up and scaled the project too large and engineering problems were created. Hopefully, they come online full time by the end of the year. Anyway, the APL purchase was a good move.

    Here are a couple of low priced stocks I've been watching. MEET and BRFH. MEET just took off today. Caught my eye @ $3.60. A kid at the gym was talking it up to his friend.

    Football next month, yeah!

    Safe journey to Bay City, MI

    There is no tax on ROC paid. With each ROC dividend paid, the cost (your purchase basis) is adjusted. Soon we will have no basis ! Well maybe in 7 years .......LOL
