First, WEC dividend paid out today. .23 a share this quarter. unless this is merger related, it seems off from $1.83 annual calculated out in a previous post. of course VVC paid theirs out the today as well.
Yes KMI bought out all MLPs last year and no K-1 to file. Personally I have ENBL and OKS that issue K-1s. The K-1 is not a big deal. Just get the right software if you do your own taxes. By the way another LP with no K-1 is MIC. I got 100 shares at the last SPO. Constantly raising dividend. July 2014 it was $3.80, now $4,44 annually. if you have more risk tolerance, checkout SFL . Good earnings and raising divs. No K-1 again. I didn't make any trades today. New month is not looking too good !! LOL
Yes dividend payers are the way to go. Interesting that Buffet circled back to PSX. Utilities and Pharma are off today. F can be an interesting play, raising the dividend 10 cents a year in January in 2014 and 2015. I read a rumor that they might re-badge the Everest for US/Canada as a new Bronco. Plus bring back the Ranger. I did buy more KMI now at a 6% yield. New month, all the best.
The article I read concerning the 4 exits , HTGC is NOT disclosing what equity was sold. Could be BOX, hopefully at higher price
Also it looks like HIG is selling some. Then why the buys ? If the shares outstanding number is correct, 14.983m
this position is more than 50% ownership. Would they go below control?
In addition, this prospectus relates to 7,858,914 shares of our common stock that may be sold by the selling stockholders identified under “Selling Stockholders.” We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares of our common stock by the selling stockholders.
There is something going on here, New SEC Filing and many small insider indirect buys for HIG by 10% owners who may sell these shares according to NEW POS 8c that was filed yesterday. Haven't started the fine read of documents. I started a discussion over at the CPTA board.
I'll agree to this as well. Someone at the Fed spoke today about the possibility of raising rate next month. Utilities down, BDCs mixed, banks mixed and floating rate ACSF up. Pick and choose the yield poison I guess.
I tried to snag some BP yesterday under $31, Did not fill. I am on the fence to buy more CNP. An article referenced CNP third party vendors not paying their bills on time and ENBL. CNP was under $18 yesterday when I read that article !! And it moved higher after I finished it so I got distracted.
Yes I have SO too. I like the deal.
I did buy some RD and GSK to average down. For some reason, I have been buying UK ADRs. Bought some SNN too. A CNBC talking "oil" head based in London ranked XOM a buy, CVX a somewhat buy and COP a hold. CVX had the greatest potential for growth according to him.
NGG is another ADR with a nice yield, I have been watching. And PPL.
That does hurt the Pack, hopefully Adams can stepup. However, when a team as a great passer QB like Rodgers, all you have to do is run the the routes. He'll get the ball to you somehow !!
Thanks for the dialogue and the sanity check in this crazy week. Hopefully Yellen not the Chineese will sneeze this week. Don't want to catch a cold !
I would see RD or XOM buy BP. CVX would buy OXY or COP.
In 2009, XOM bought XTO for $31B, I believe their last big purchase. The question do they want to add to XTO?
$10 Tuesdays is a bargain compared to other local outfits and chains. As pointed out, you got to cook it and in the summer, the oven being turned on is not the best idea. Papa's meets a niche in the pizza market.
Gotta do what makes sense. My cost average is bit lower than yours, $15.40. I'm going to hang onto TE and see what happens. Utilities are staying somewhat strong. I guess the market likes DUK and AWK each has been green in the sea of red.
I did average down on CNP @ $19.25. I'll just collect the dividend. Some big oils look VERY tempting XOM RD CVX and COP.
I had XLS which got bought out by HRS. If you are light on defense Harris might be a good one.
In reading some of the NYT articles concerning the broken jaw, Thats one way to settle a QB situation !! However, Smith did not show up to guys hometown football clinic after saying he would. Nor did he pay him back for hotel, limo and plane tickets. Plus the locker room was playing on IK. I would be #$%$ too.
