    KMI or CLMT

    I own both, but in my opinion, I think the key differences are that the kmi officers put their money into buying new shares on the open market - insiders buying is always helpful for a stock since it indicates that they believe in this company and their public relations team goes forward saying that we will meet our numbers and have more than enough to cover distributions - it would be nice if clmt was as proactive; recently bought more kmi yesterday

    Sentiment: Hold

    I agree that volume is fairly low on the stock today, but since february 18th volume has been higher than usual and the stock has been dropping with that; it has now been down almost 12 days in a row - buy it when it settles out and bottoms some or sell naked calls at higher prices for some income or sell puts at lower prices if you want to own the stock - but for anyone who bought at 30, this stock is down almost 20% already and no one knows if this is the bottom or if it will continue to fall

    Sentiment: Hold

    The chart still looks down although support is likely around 24.5-25; i think it might be a reasonable time to buy and even a better time to write naked puts at 22.5 going out a few months; i think the real headwind is going to be what happens as interest rates start to go up, which the market will begin focusing on as the economy is getting stronger and not sure how that will impact all mlp's since they are capital intensive and will have to then compete with higher interest rates from bonds as an alternative investment class - right now bonds are so low yielding that everyone has been chasing mlp returns; clmt also has the additional issue of covering it's distribution which in my opinion wont get resolved for awhile

    Sentiment: Hold

    I hope it continues up, but the chart looks like it is still in a downtrend to base building with support around 25.50 for the past few months; the stock often goes up when the market goes down since people look for yield; tax loss selling is also over - however the company likely will still have trouble covering its quarterly distributions because of weak cash flow which will hamper any upside movement until that is resolved

    selling puts can generate income, but also losses and you should do some reading and look at the chicago board of option site since they have many tutorials available to help explain the concept; i like selling options on stocks that i would be willing to buy at a price lower than where the stock is currently trading, but that means you need the cash to buy at that price or if the option is underwater buy the option back and take the loss on the option - again this is a risky strategy if you cant afford to buy the stock or the option - what i like about it is that you are basically providing insurance and getting paid for it (the person who is buying the put option that you are selling is betting that the stock price will go down and you are betting that the stock price will be higher than the price that the option is exercised at or at least higher than your net cost) - nice strategy to make money but again read and understand how selling naked put options work

    I have been told that once the basis is zero, when you sell the stock, the gain is taxed at your tax rate and it might be best to place in a charitable annuity trust as another option

    seems like a good time to sell 25 and 22.5 puts

    please dont take this the wrong way since i think your comments are often very valuable, but i would also hope that you would avoid playing in the gutter with negative comments that are personal and instead stick to insight remarks related to the stock topic

    liza i also like selling naked puts, do you find that a particular stock or group of stocks is better than another for selling naked puts and collecting the time premium; and also how quickly do you close and roll out to the next quarter? thanks
