    Crash Coming !!!

    Nothing wrong with holding both either. WPZ edged up again today (5-30-14) to become my 6th largest holding. KMI + KMP is my 4th biggest holding. I prefer investing my distributions, it's a personal preference, but I do have 3 holdings re-investing. KMR, unless I'm mistaken, pays only in shares. 2 of the mentioned 3, offer a unit/share discount on re-investments.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • I'm not as down on IRET as the market apparently is, after the quarterly report came out yesterday. A 3% loss today, on a rally day. I really was hoping for a good showing, not just long explanations. Gateway to the Bakken and all. I'm holding, accumulating (only) with dividend re-investments, and hoping management's plan gains traction.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Not seeing my reply post from a moment ago, Take 2, maybe I hit cancel ? TD Ameritrade hit me with a flat rate $38 reorganization fee. Very steep, considering that it was from 205 original shares of NRF. I'd never heard of it before, and wrote them to please reverse it. I'm not gonna hold my breath on that. BTW, I sold the NSAM shares, and bought more NRF, and LNCO with the proceeds.

    Where is this going, and why?

    Write me down as not quite as pessimistic as others in this chain. I certainly understand the concept of selling on the rumors, and also scooping up some of your gains, to move elsewhere.

    But... I see the recent strong movement up, as a sign that there's a seriously strong report coming on August 4th. They've had some time to monetize recent acquisitions, weather's been good, and until very recently, Nat Gas held a decent price, giving VNR time to hedge future draws, based on their new and improved output.
    I also believe the talking heads are correct, when they say Nat Gas prices will be nearer to $6, when exporting LNG gets into gear.

    I'm holding fast, and even added a little bit more, last week, at $31.90. VNR is my 2nd largest holding. I'm sure there will be peaks and valleys in the chart, but I suspect little chance of ending 2016 below $40 per unit. If my thoughts prove correct, and my math is any good, that's a roughly 17% compounded annual gain.
    I'll take that, and sleep well.

    Time to sell?

    Oh heck no. If there's a buy, hold and accumulate stock, anywhere in this universe, this is it. BBEP is my 3rd largest holding. They'll slowly work towards their stated goal, of an 8% distribution, by share appreciation. And that's better that $25, as they raise the distribution every quarter. This management team is sharp, doesn't make horrible mistakes, and honestly, makes only really good moves. Sell a loser, take the loss, accumulate BBEP.

    I think so too, but most strings are all about whining, doom and gloom, pain, and misery, and the sky falling. You'd think they were all booked on a Malaysian Airlines flight or something.

    Not loving the .90 coverage. But I still think the future of VNR, 2 year horizon, and beyond, is extremely bright. Things will, apparently, be in somewhat of a holding pattern, until, drum roll please, the U.S. begins exporting LNG. At that point, you want to already have a decent holding of VNR. BTW, wouldn't penicillin work for a typical coochy cooty ??

  • Dear Richard, I bought units of KMP, at $80.40, on 1-2-14. It was a bit rocky early on, after a hit piece, I believe by Barrons. But I believed in you, and continued adding shares, in your apparent personal favorite, KMI. Today, I sold my KMP, at $95.42. This week, I'll receive my 3rd, and likely, last distribution from that holding. I still hold all my KMI, and put in a bottom fishing type order, on quite a bit more KMI, with my KMP proceeds. Needless to say, I'm very happy with your successful unlocking, of the value in your companies. I'm somewhat at a loss, at all the whining going on, on this board. I'm also at a loss over anyone filing a lawsuit, but that surprises me considerably less, than the endless whining on this board. Lawyers will be lawyers after all, and that's the very nicest thing I can say on that. In closing, thank you very much for making this such a great company, and making so many people, including me, so very much money. Best regards, Hal

    I'd held LXP, for several years, but liquidated the holding, with many others, as the markets melted in 2008. Dipped my toe back into the LXP water, for a small amount, this morning (8-15-14 , $10.82). The water does seem warm. 6.2% dividend, reasonable business moves, reasonable management. I'm thinking ...... if the markets deem this company a 6% dividend payer, and LXP continues slowly raising that dividend, a .75 dividend, which is already affordable, starting January, 2016, isn't totally impossible. If my math is any good, that'd allow for a $12.50 share price, and compounded appreciation, north of 15% per year. That's a winner in my book. Good luck to all longs !!

    I bought at $42 too. I knew that living caricature had been regularly calling ETP the WORST COMPANY IN MY PORTFOLIO. It meant very little to me. The reason I'm here in the ETP message area now, is I'm considering upping my position, and wanted to see some thoughts on it. Cramer's BUY is not a plus.

    Yes, and pomegranate black tea tastes very good. This should equally benefit CVRR.

    If ETP follows KMI's lead, which made me a lot of money 2 weeks ago, there won't be an ETP anymore, it'll be just ETE. I did however, up my position in ETP last week, with some of the proceeds from selling all my KMI. ETP is now my 2nd largest holding, (pretty far) behind the LINE/LNCO combo. BBEP is a close 3rd. ETP is a solid company, making solid moves, with a bright future.

    WTI-Brent Spread Does Not Apply to CVRR

    by barebuttbob2015 Aug 15, 2014 1:41 AM
    paintedblk paintedblk Aug 25, 2014 5:58 PM Flag

    Now, I'm not claiming to be in your elite IQ group, and I could certainly be wrong, but I always understood it that ...... CVRR refines the cheaper WTI oil, but gets the slight advantage of competing with refiners that can only refine the heavier mid-east oil, which is price based on, the more expensive brent. Also, CVRR's 'Buffett type moat" is the extremely high start up cost, and ridiculously difficult regulatory hurdles in this industry. I'm long CVRR, but it's not a huge holding, as I can't fully wrap my head around all the moving parts , and challenges.
