    Insider buying

    One lesson I've learned is that no one invests the kind of money Ericson has done, unless the purchaser sees a bright future for the company he is investing in. Could he be wrong? Sure. But I've found following insider purchasers to be a reasonable way to make some money in the stock market.

    Nice to see a Director with some confidence. $1.3 million picked up in the open market by a Director this week :

    Several insiders buying in the past couple of days.
    The price action has been ugly the past month, but when I see officers and directors showing confidence like this, I think I'll take the plunge. Hopefully the market will take notice and respond positively on Monday.

    Start thinking long term. The drug has been approved. This is either going to be a successful drug, in which case it will double, or it will be a blockbuster. There is very little downside, long term at least, from where we are now.

    I purchased KMP in my IRA without realizing the tax consequences of UBIT. Doing some reading, I've seen it mentioned that in many, if not most years KMP reports a negative UBIT. Can someone provide some information regarding what the UBIT has been per share in prior years? I've read a lot of articles that advise it's not wise to invest in an MLP in a retirement account. But if the UBIT is usually negative, what's the big deal? I know I can invest in KMI, but obviously I like the higher yield in KMP. Thanks for any advice!
