I am out today, did not like CC stating fuel sales in future forecast flat to down. Growth will all be in growing stores, food. Broke even, to much volatility in too few shares can be manipulated too much.
it is x-dividend Wednesday, stocks drop the price of their div. when they go x because the money is paid out, in this case not until the 16th or some where around there . Earnings will be out Feb. 24th. I bought because stripes
stores have 3 standing lines of people buying food, drinks, etc at lunch and 3:30 to 5:30 They do a amazing business.
My MLP investments paid 154K since june 2009 in Div. I made rental improvements with stocks then, but would have been better keeping 2 rentals I sold and put in market in 07 and 09 because real estate took off in Lubbock Tx. after holding houses 25 years I sold 2 and in 2012 -15 prices jumped.city has crazy growth along with property taxes however, to pay for city expansion. Guy at the local watering hole said "Can't wait till I am 80 and this #$%$ is over with" Best LOL line I have heard.
I sold most EPD at 30-31, I did not sell today but came home at close after looking at property all day and thought , this is insanity, no more. This is too much irrational bull s*^& to waste your time and life on. Thank God I have some $ and choices left before this sh*& took it!
Only because my cost is 8.10 from buying Duncan in 2009 at 16.20 and the split .Would have sold out higher but too much in taxes to dump in one year. I am done with market, tired of relying on
shiek taking a sH*^ and causing a global recession or what the heck Putin does, and China. Life too short to be concerned about such, and I am too old to have my retirement ruined by a boom and bust market every 7 years. I am buying more rental property locally where the economy is strong in Texas. Wish I never sold some in 2007. Good luck to all in another bunch of madness, I bought 2009, did great, just did not get out at top. Thank GOD I dumped ETP at 50! Good luck to all, will keep this till 30-32 some day!
